    Vagus nerve stimulation study shows significant reduction in rheumatoid arthritis symptoms

    https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...0614082931.htm

    The results of a pilot study presented today at the Annual European Congress of Rheumatology (EULAR 2019) suggest that electro stimulation of one of the nerves connecting the brain to the body (the vagus nerve), could provide a novel treatment approach for patients with rheumatoid arthritis.1

    "This is a really exciting development. For many patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, current treatments don't work, or aren't tolerated," said Professor Thomas Dörner, Chairperson of the Scientific Programme Committee, EULAR. "These results open the door to a novel approach to treating not only rheumatoid arthritis, but other chronic inflammatory diseases. This is certainly an area for further study."

      Jo, For the past two years I've been experimenting with the Nervana Vagus Nerve Stimulator. It works through an earbud, with or without an iPod. Have seen fascinating results with my patients, and just now will be beginning a trial with an RA patient. Its not just vagus, it seems to open up the NTS circuit and then goes where it's needed first. So, cardiac patients, post-lung transplant, trigeminal neuralgia, generalized anxiety... created by two MDs down here in Florida, they're all focused on the "ohhh happy juice in your brain" and yet it is fascinating rewiring going on. experiencenervana.com

      Thanks Cathy, I have just looked to see if you have a thread on this and can't find one. I would be very interested to read more.
