Treating Depression

Did you know that research from Johns Hopkins shows that approximately 1 in 10 American adults will suffer from a depressive illness in any given year? Many of them will not even receive treatment for their condition. Lack of medical financing and social bias often deter those with depression from recognizing their symptoms or seeking help. But, if you are suffering from depression, you are not alone and help to manage your symptoms is available.

Treatment for depression should always be carried out in consultation with a health professional who can monitor symptoms and adjust treatment plans as needed. However, there are things you can do to help with your symptoms.

How Can VNS Help With Depression?

The vagus nerve regulates our body’s stress and relaxation responses. When signals to the brain are disrupted, we experience that shift in mood which is often accompanied by the physical symptoms of anxiety, digestive issues, irregular heartbeats, prolonged sadness and low energy. The mild electrical pulses and calming music offered by our Pulsetto wellness device can help provide some respite from these symptoms, and allow us the breathing space to help our mind course correct and return to a more functional mental state.

Using a VNS device like Pulsetto could help you: 

  • Stabilize mood swings and promote an emotional balance  
  • Enhance your brain function related to regulating moods  
  • Improve your sleep quality, which is crucial for mental health  
  • Increase your energy levels.  

All of this can help prepare your mind and body, leaving you in the best state to break the depressive cycle and begin to heal.
