What’s the link between the vagus nerve, music, stress and better sleep? Pulsetto’s new blog on vagus nerve stimulation has the answers!

A New Blog That Will Send You To Sleep! 

Now it is not often that I can recommend a blog by telling you that it sent me right off to sleep. Snores galore! Best night’s sleep I had in months. But then again, this blog is all about improving your sleep. That, and educating you about the secret to a good night’s rest: the vagus nerve.

Discover all about vagus nerve stimulation and how it could mean more restful nights and more refreshed mornings with Pulsetto at https://pulsetto.tech/blogs/blog/vagus-nerve-music-and-de-stressing-better-sleep    

What is the vagus nerve?

The vagus nerve is a complex cranial nerve which links up to the majority of your internal organs, including the digestive tract, heart and lungs. It really does act as an information highway for all kinds of things like your:

  • Heart rate & blood pressure
  • Respiration rate (take some deep calming breaths!)
  • Blood vessel dilation
  • Reflexes like sneezing, coughing, swallowing, etc
  • The parasympathetic nervous system.

But the main thing you need to know is that the vagus nerve controls and responds to our feelings (and symptoms) of stress and anxiety.

What does all this have to do with sleep?

We’re not the only ones struggling to switch off at night. The latest statistics show that 14.5% of US adults struggle to fall asleep and a whopping one in three report not getting enough sleep each night. 

So what’s keeping us all awake? Anxiety and stress are the most common contributors to a lack of sleep, with thoughts about work, personal issues, or financial worries most likely to keep people up at night. Sound familiar? 

But the vagus nerve can help! 

When we are in a stressful situation, our bodies become tense due to the sympathetic nervous system. To prepare for a perceived attack, our hearts begin to race and our bodies go into overdrive.

Although the vagus nerve does not participate directly in the sympathetic nervous system, it does work to reduce its activity. Pulsetto’s studies show that by stimulating the vagus nerve, you can effectively alter sleep patterns and get the restful repose you need.

Where can I find out more?

Well, I can tell you are a little sleep deprived, because I started out by telling you that you can find everything you need to know in this amazing new blog we’ve been chatting about!

Pulsetto’s blog explains the variety of ways that a person can stimulate the vagus nerve using non-invasive home methods, such as exercise, meditation, or listening to calming music. Surely we’ve all experienced that state of bliss a soothing tune can bring on? And don’t worry if panpipes aren’t your thing - there’s more than one way to chill out to song! 

Another effective way you can reach that much-needed state of calm is to try using a specially designed nerve stimulation device. 

The Pulsetto vagus nerve stimulator provides a concentrated low-level electrical pulse to stimulate the vagus nerve and bring about a state of calm. Using an app, you can select from pulse patterns and complimentary music tracks which are specifically engineered to encourage healthy sleep rhythms (and, as promised, they’re not all panpipes!).
