In a procedure, based upon auricular therapy, I use acupressure to stimulate the auricular branch of the vagus nerve, attempting to raise serotonin levels, which has been shown to increase tone in the smooth muscle of the stomach, thus suppressing appetite. Additionally, my procedure stimulates the “full reflex” between the stomach and the brain more quickly and more completely than normally experienced by the nervous system.
The vagus nerve, also called X cranial nerve or 10th cranial nerve, is the longest and most complex of the cranial nerves. It runs from the brain through the face and thorax to the abdomen. It is a mixed nerve that contains parasympathetic fibres.
The vagus nerve has the most extensive distribution of the cranial nerves. Its pharyngeal and laryngeal branches transmit motor impulses to the pharynx and larynx; its cardiac branches act to slow the rate of heartbeat; its bronchial branch acts to constrict the bronchi; and its esophageal branches control involuntary muscles in the esophagus, stomach, gallbladder, pancreas, and small intestine, stimulating peristalsis and gastrointestinal secretions.
This procedure basically overrides the willpower or the weakness of cravings and addictions, thereby assisting you in gaining control of your eating habits and your overall diet.
Diabetics report a loss of cravings for sweets and carbohydrates, which helps them stabilise their blood sugar levels and their diet.
I have also had people tell me they are less stressed and have more energy, and some have even reported increased libido.
When you consider the amount of money people spend on gym memberships, special diet foods and supplements, weight loss pills, the one-time cost to have the procedure done is very palatable. It is also much less costly and invasive than some surgical procedures for weight loss.
