Use of TAVNS in conjunction with Acupuncture for Anxiety: Ma.Co edition

I’ve been working on trying to get a single HRV measure of efficacy for transcutaneous auricular vagal nerve stimulation.  Readers know that I look at many parameters since the “best use” procedures are far from established.  Some advocate time measures such as RMSSD, others LF/HF a frequency measure that I’ve found to be a great…

Clinic Data and the Ongoing Research into Using HRV as a Biomarker of Successful Treatment

As careful readers of the blog know, I’ve been looking at HRV in conjunction with Acupuncture for a very long time.  I’ve added TAVNS to the mix because it’s a treatment that can be used at home to help reinforce acupuncture treatment or even to be used on its own.  Fortunately for me, there are…

Clinic Data in a Recent Migraine Patient: An.St edition 2

This data is looking very good for this patient.  She was having weekly headaches.  She went a few weeks without any and had trouble scheduling an appointment. So she had one over the last weekend, or 2 days ago and yesterday.  Today there is still some lingering headache.  But her data looks so good, I…

TAVNS Clinical Data Not a Panacea: Li.Ma and St.Gi edition

In the spirit of “there’s no bad data only bad hypotheses” I share this data.  This is from a long time patient (>3 years) who comes monthly for cosmetic acupuncture. I’ve tried TAVNS on her a few times and the results show in increase in her sympathetic/parasympathetic balance to a dramatic degree.  Not once, not…

Clinical Case, Migraine, HRV and hypersensitivity: An.St edition

Sigh.  The vagaries of HRV, the challenge and the opportunity… This is the story of a young woman (30 ish) with severe migraines, at least once per week.  Initial treatment might have caused a migraine so I dialed back the number of needles drastically to a key four. (3K, 7H, 4Sp, 6PC).  She still had…

Hypervigilance and Acupuncture/HRV

This data is from a new patient who has autonomic hypervigilance, which manifests as anxiety and exaggerated sympathetic activity.  Her stress levels do not appear to be excessively high and, so far, have responded positively to acupuncture.  We’ll keep an eye on her to see how she progresses.

Heart Rate Variability as a Biomarker for Resilience and Prevention: Data

In the latest issue of Medical Acupuncture they highlighted the importance of Acupuncture as a preventative and a way to optimize health.  I’m preparing a journal article to show that HRV improves, stress decreases in migraineurs who have been successfully treated.  This data is over patient visits for at least a year.  I tried to…
