This is another example of a migraine patient showing marked parasympathetic increase, sympathetic decrease with TaVNS or transcutaneous auricular vagal nerve stimulation in conjunction with acupuncture.  I realize that the data sets are still sparse, but interesting nonetheless.  This patient had quick diminution of her migraines after starting acupuncture over 1 year ago and now comes in about every 3 weeks to make sure they stay at bay.  We’ve seen this help other migraine patients here, and here.
