VNS for Physical Fitness

Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) is a procedure that sends electrical signals to the brain. A vagus nerve stimulation device will deliver therapy as a treatment for certain medical conditions. This, in turn, helps us to maintain our physical fitness and be able to do things that we might not have previously felt well enough to contemplate.

Furthermore, if you are looking for another way to maintain physical fitness, health, and well-being, consider creating a home gym, as this could significantly contribute to all areas of your life.

We shall explore here how this device has the potential to help us both physically and mentally through nerve stimulation. Also, we shall look at the other ways that our physical health can be maintained.

Devices

When left to their own devices, many people may ponder very little when it comes to looking after themselves as they should.

In recent years, more devices have become available that we can use at home to help us manage certain medical conditions that are troubling us. One such device is the VNS Stimulator. So, how does it work?

A VNS stimulator works to improve our health by sending electrical signals to the brain. This has been known to help with certain conditions in terms of relieving their symptoms. 

By giving it a try, we can feel more comfortable about attempting the kinds of exercises that keep us physically fit, so we can maintain our cardiovascular health. If we feel unwell, we are unlikely to even want to exercise, let alone feel capable of it.

The conditions VNS is thought to help with include:

  • Epilepsy
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Migraines
  • GERD
  • Obesity
  • Alzheimer’s Disease

 

If you weren’t already aware, GERD or Gastroesophageal reflux disease, is a disorder related to digestion that affects that ring of muscle that is between the oesophagus and the stomach. This ring is known as LES or the lower oesophagal sphincter. Anyone with this condition may have acid digestion or heartburn. 

 

To get the most out of your device, check that your home device is listed as helping with the condition that you are suffering from before purchasing. Also, you should be aware that they may not work for everyone.

Obesity

Interestingly, VNS stimulation therapy has been linked to potentially helping with obesity, which is something that will trouble many. It can, for instance, be bad for our health to eat the wrong kinds of foods, such as those high in saturated fats or sugar, in any great quantity.

Gastric bands provide extreme solutions for dealing with obesity. We can sometimes avoid it getting to this stage when VNS stimulation is tried along with controlled diets and regular exercise.

It is always good to have an alternative treatment that is not as invasive as others. We are then more likely to do something about the problem or risk to our health.

Home Gym and Outdoor Exercise

With VNS helping us in lots of ways, we could look at the home gym to keep us feeling better physically and mentally. It is a knock-on effect that physical health is the key to improving our minds too.

There is no substitute for outdoor exercise as a way to not just improve physical fitness but mental well-being too. Being around nature is what the mind thrives in as it feels freer, more relaxed, and content in itself. The knock-on effect of not feeling stressed all the time is that we feel like we can conquer anything. We should, of course, reign that thought in, but it is good to have it.

A combination between VNS stimulation therapy and effective exercise may be just what you are looking for.

Vagus nerve stimulation has been found to help with physical fitness when delivered by devices, in-home gyms, and even in medical environments. VNS helps improve heart function and can increase the amount of time someone can exercise before becoming exhausted. 

If you’re looking for a way to improve your physical fitness, VNS may be able to help.
