Hi, I’m new here. My two HF autistic kids were recently diagnosed with hypermobility and I’m hoping it may shed some light on my own low energy crawl through the last 12 years.
I’m in Ireland.
ElectroCore’s brain- hacking code needs 25 one- millisecond pulses per second—but this low a frequency would trigger pain receptors while passing through the skin. So the stimulator forms each of the 25 pulses from a burst of 5,000 hertz….so that only the train of 25 pulses remains to propagate up into the brain.
This company have a handheld device(gammacore) targeted at headache alleviation which is held against the neck.
I think this is the cerbomed offering.
Does anyone have insight about whether TVNS that propagates to the brain could be effective if the Vagus nerve is compressed below that?
Does anyone know of devices that are reasonably affordable that differentiate the effects on Vagus nerve fibres so that those which influence the heart aren’t affected?
Some of these devices aren’t approved for use in the US but I’d also love to hear about any info around optimal stimulation areas, pulse strength for Tens, Scenar or other.
Thanks circles.January 12, 2016 at 7:37 pm #5789Dr. DianaKeymaster
Great question! I spoke with the Cerbomed folks when they came out with their stimulator. At the time, I was suspecting vagus nerve compression. If the nerve is compressed or damaged for any reason, stimulation is not going to help it, and the folks at Cerbomed agreed. When I noticed that most of us had many symptoms of low acetylcholine, I realized that THAT was the likely cause of poor vagus nerve functioning in most of us. To correct it, we came out with Parasym Plus (www.VagusNerveSupport.com) to stimulate the postganglionic portion of the nerve (the second piece, if you will). I hope that helps!January 13, 2016 at 2:03 am #5790circlesParticipant
Thanks so much for your reply-I think that’s a really good piece of info to have.
I’ve watched some of your presentations so I’ll go back and take another look
