Vagus Nerve Stimulation

Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS)

Vagus Nerve Stimulation is included in the therapies offered by a variety of different health care practitioners.  Vielight, the gold standardVagus Nerve Stimulation Device company that conducts photobiomodulation (light therapy) research and invents devices based on research, has just introduced an affordable device that stimulates the Vagus Nerve. The Vielight Vagus can be used together with the Vielight Neuro to complement and maximize outcomes.

About the Vagus Nerve

The vagus nerve is crucial in regulating many of our bodies’ most basic functions. One of the most important aspects of the vagus nerve is its direct connection between the brain and the gut.

Neuroplasticity: Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS) is associated with promoting changes in the brain’s structure and function, improving connectivity and neural network efficiency.

Cognitive Enhancement: Studies have explored the impact of  Vagus Nerve Stimulation on cognitive functions. Findings suggest improvements in memory, attention, and other cognitive domains.

While Vagus Nerve stimulation is commonly conducted through electrical stimulation, the Vielight Vagus device offers non-invasive stimulation with light energy based on the principles of photobiomodulation (PBM).

As a patented device, the Vielight Vagus stands as the world’s only photobiomodulation device specifically designed for vagus nerve stimulation.

 Benefits of Stimulating the Vagus Nerve

Stimulating the vagus nerve offers a variety of benefits to both physical and mental health. Some of these include:

  1. Reduced inflammation: Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) has been shown to help regulate inflammation in the body, which can be beneficial for conditions where inflammation plays a role, such as arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease.
  2. Lowered heart rate and blood pressure: Activation of the vagus nerve can lead to a decrease in heart rate and blood pressure, promoting cardiovascular health and reducing the risk of heart disease.
  3. Improved mood: Vagus nerve stimulation has been linked to improvements in mood and alleviation of symptoms in mood disorders such as depression and anxiety. It can also enhance feelings of well-being.
  4. Enhanced digestion: The vagus nerve plays a key role in regulating digestion by increasing stomach acidity and digestive enzyme production, as well as promoting gut motility. Stimulation can aid in alleviating digestive issues.
  5. Better sleep: VNS has been associated with improvements in sleep patterns and overall sleep quality, making it potentially beneficial for those with sleep disorders.
  6. Pain relief: Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) can help in reducing chronic pain by modulating pain perception and decreasing inflammation associated with pain conditions.
  7. Improved memory and cognitive function: Some studies suggest that VNS may enhance memory and cognitive abilities, which could be beneficial for conditions like Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
  8. Epilepsy management: Vagus nerve stimulation is an established treatment for epilepsy that does not respond well to medication, helping to reduce the frequency and severity of seizures.
  9. Enhanced immune response: Activation of the vagus nerve affects immune system function, potentially boosting immune responses to infections and diseases.

Vagus nerve stimulation using photobiomodulation shows promise across a wide range of health benefits, though the extent and specific effects will vary based on individual health conditions.

Note: This video post is a part of my Shut Down Anxiety online course that introduces dozens of proven methods to shut down anxiety. We do not have any research evidence on this option yet, but I believe it merits serious consideration. For more information and the register for my Shut Down Anxiety online course, visit:
