The Vagus Nerve
The Vagus Nerve
The Vagus Nerve is one of several cranial nerves that connect the brain with the body.
The primary job of the vagus nerve is to help the body physically recover from a "fight or flight" response and shift into the "rest and digest" state. Essentially, it helps you recover from stress and anxiety.
The Vagus Nerve plays a role in controlling functions like heart rate, breathing rate, blood pressure, and other automatic processes in the body. When the Vagus Nerve is activated, it slows down these body functions and helps your body relax.
A branch of the vagus nerve can be accessed outside the skin on the side of the neck just under the ear. This is called the Auricular Branch of the Vagus Nerve. Many studies have demonstrated that stimulating this branch of the vagus nerve can reduce elevated heart rate and lessen anxiety symptoms.
A Simple Vagus Nerve Stimulator
VeRelief applies electrical energy to the ABVN on the side of the neck to quickly calm someone down during a stress or anxiety response.
The ABVN travels towards a region in the brainstem that connects with the Locus Coeruleus and Reticular Activating System, regions that control Serotonin and Norepinephrine production, as well as our sleep/wake cycles.
This is why stimulating the ABVN is an effective method to help people fall asleep faster, calm racing thoughts, reduce stress and anxiety, and boost mood.
