For your interest:


http://experiencenervana.com/technology-vagus-nerve-stimulation/#parentHorizontalTab2

Posting a product website is normally against the rules ("No commercial use, promotion or solicitation"), but you have in the past posted appropriately and this is topically about VNS.

So...it would be very helpful to briefly explain why you are posting this particular product?

I have zero economic interest in my post. In the past there have been a number of members on this forum, asking where they can find a stimulator, that's all.

The brain, FRMI and possible knock on effects to Vagus Nerve. I think this reminds us why Rutgers were awarded the research project for our syndrome.

Here's what happens in women's brains at O, can't imagine our brains do nothing :)

Fascinating, COLM! And our very own Rutgers' Dr Nan Wise is brain-scanned in orgasm with Dr Komisaruk supervising.

The article mentions that orgasm culminates in a release of oxytocin (the 'cuddle hormone'). In Europe, they even sell a nasal spray with oxytocin.

But it can be a dangerous drug to take.

We had a lot of discussion @ TNS/POIS about oxytocin (possible POIS treatment?). You can copy and paste this in your Google search box and a number of oxytocin discussions will come up:

"Vagus Nerve" in the news



http://www.webmd.com/brain/news/20160412/vagus-nerve-stimulation-treatment

I saw another splashy Vagus Nerve headline article in the paper edition of WebMD in my doctor's office today. (I hope science fares better with POIS than it did for the common cold I came in for!) There's a nasty virus going around, long-LONG lasting (weeks/months) so stay well!

Cross-posted from NORD Interim thread about HRV. Also discusses Polyvagal Theory




https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/the-neuroscience-of-heart/



In Stef's post -- http://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=2086.45
-- she summarizes an early interim report by Dr Komisaruk, in which he discusses HRV (heart rate variability) and how it might relate to POIS.

This article seems to explain HRV in clear language.

Vagus Nerve in the news:

Medscape

February 27, 2017

"Vagal Nerve Stimulation [VNS] Improves Arm Function After Stroke"
http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/876351




"Spectacular" Results

Commenting on the study, American Heart Association/American Stroke Association spokesperson, Philip Gorelick, MD, MPH, medical director, Hauenstein Neuroscience Center, Grand Rapids, Michigan, described the results as "pretty spectacular."


I'm hoping that we POISers will eventually join the growing list of successful VNS applications!
