The VNS Therapy System is indicated for use as an adjunctive therapy in reducing the frequency of seizures in adults and adolescents over 12 years of age with partial onset seizures that are refractory to antiepileptic medications.
People who have medically refractory seizures are those who have tried two or more medications and are still not satisfied with seizure control, side effects, or their quality of life.
VNS Therapy has been proven in clinical studies to provide a safe and effective way to control seizures. The result for many people is an improvement in alertness and memory plus more energy and a better mood. And because it is not a drug, VNS Therapy has allowed many people to reduce the number or dosage of medications they take.
VNS Therapy does not typically cause side effects like depression, dizziness, confusion, weight gain, fatigue, insomnia and low energy. The most common side effects include hoarseness, a prickling feeling on the skin, shortness of breath, and increased coughing. And these side effects diminish over time.

I cant say enough about this community/organization I'm a huge supporter of everything they do and stand for on every level! They are truly the most comprehensive cancer support organization, with an understanding that cancer affects the person on that journey, as well as friends, family, supporters, all of whom might need support and comfort. It's for men, women, and children with all types of cancer, and their loved ones and it's not just groups of people talking about cancer. They have programs and events just for fun and specifically to NOT talk about cancer, dig? AND . . . it's all FREE (they figure if youre going through cancer, you've already paid your dues). I'm in New York, but tere are at least 15 clubs nationally. Check 'em out!
When I considered various aspects of my cancer journey, specifically the initial hair loss, I felt that there was a drastic imbalance of energy in how people, myself included, process the idea of being diagnosed and consequently experience cancer. I met so very many women along my path that were overwhelmed and beaten down by hair loss and/or other external, aesthetic issues that this health challenge raises, and we simply cannot afford any negative energy in the form of self-doubt, low self-esteem, and insecurity when we are fighting for our lives!
Bald Is Beautiful is how I have begun my new career as a women's wholeness and cancer awareness advocate, and I'm headin' out there (pun intended) full steam ahead!
Wishing you Peace, Light, Joy, Love.
