Activate your parasympathetic nervous system or the "rest and digest" state with Pulsetto. This holistic device acts on the vagus nerve, which is responsible for many bodily functions, including digestion, heart rate, mood, and other important functions. 

Pulsetto uses gentle electrical stimulation on the neck to stimulate the vagus nerve. This stimulation can help you relax in under 10 minutes, improve sleep, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve overall well-being.

What is the Vagus Nerve? 

The vagus nerve, also known as the wandering nerve because of its extensive path, is like the body's information highway. This cranial nerve travels from the brainstem down to the abdomen, branching out to connect with many organs. It's the main nerve of the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for calming your body down after stress.

The vagus nerve plays a critical role in various functions, such as digestion, heart rate, breathing, and even immune response. It essentially helps the body return to a relaxed state after stressful situations. Because of this, researchers are increasingly interested in the potential of stimulating the vagus nerve to improve conditions like migraines, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain. 

How Does the Pulsetto Work?

The Pulsetto works via a process called neuromodulation. Better Brain & Body has many neuromodulation devices designed to improve various symptoms and conditions. 

Neuromodulation is a broad field encompassing various techniques that alter the nervous system's activity for therapeutic benefit. Some common neuromodulation techniques include:

  • Electrical stimulation: Techniques like vagus nerve stimulation or deep brain stimulation use electrical pulses to target specific nerves or brain regions.

  • Magnetic stimulation: Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) uses magnetic fields to stimulate brain activity.

The Pulsetto is an electrical stimulation device that delivers gentle and comfortable electrical impulses to your neck, an easy access point for the vagus nerve. When stimulated, the vagus nerve sends signals to the brain and body, promoting a relaxation response. This may involve:

  • Lowering heart rate and blood pressure

  • Slowing down breathing

  • Promoting feelings of calm and reducing stress

Similarly, conditions that may see improvement with the use of the Pulsetto include: 

  • Anxiety & Stress

  • Depression

  • Sleep

What's important to note about the Pulsetto is that it provides individuals an alternative, holistic, and medication-free method of treating and relieving symptoms of conditions that are often treated with medications or other more invasive methods of treatment. While beneficial in some cases, invasive treatment methods have become widespread and almost second nature to many people today. The Pulsetto and other non-invasive devices help people manage their treatment holistically and pain-free with minimal or no short-term or long-term side effects.
