#NerveStimulation to Treat #Depression

A new approach for treating depression may prove to be beneficial where as many as 4-drugs have failed. Vagus nerve stimulation was approved by the FDA in 2005 and it’s really earning its stripes today, says a new study.

The vagus nerve starts in the brain and runs-down the spinal cord to the chest and abdomen.  It’s primary function is to relay messages to the body and back again. It runs in both directions. When a person is stressed. anxious, or living an unhealthy lifestyle, the efficiency of the vagus nerve is impaired.

Stimulation of the vagus nerve was shown to mitigate depression that was untreated with a cocktail  of prescription anti-depressants. If you’re not ready to stop-in to your local mental health professional implant, try this simple exercise to stimulate your vagus nerve.

Truth be told, most people are living with severe depression. People who underwent this vagus nerve stimulation in combination with their prescribed anti-depressant medication were shown to improve. However, a few intentional breaths and an eye lifting smile never hurt anybody. What have you got to lose?

  7. Together with every little thing which appears to be developing within this particular area, many of your perspectives are actually somewhat stimulating. On the other hand, I beg your pardon, but I do not give credence to your entire theory, all be it stimulating none the less. It appears to us that your opinions are generally not totally validated and in fact you are generally your self not really fully confident of the assertion. In any case I did enjoy reading it.
