A higher number, measured in one one-thousandths of a second, called Milli-Seconds, also displayed usually as a 2 digit number like 20, or 60, etc. with a lower case ms - millisecond, behind the number.
The range is between 5-120 in most cases, the more athletic you are the higher the number will usually be.

How to Decalcify Your Pineal Gland

Uncategorized Mar 26, 2021
The size of only a grain of rice, this tiny gland is an essential player as to how we perceive reality, make decisions, perform and how we sleep. A healthy-functioning pineal is essential for psychological development, peak performance, and maybe even something a bit more spiritual.
Unlike most of our brain, the blood-brain barrier doesn’t isolate the pineal from the rest of our body. Instead, the pineal gets a tremendous amount of blood flow, second only to the kidneys. Surrounded by and immersed in cerebrospinal fluid, this gland camps out in a tiny cave-like area behind and above the pituitary gland.
The pineal gland secretes melatonin (through the conversion of serotonin), which activates the pituitary gland to release MSH — the melanocyte stimulating hormone that produces melanin. 
In a study done by British scientist Jennifer Luke back in the 1990s,...

What Are the Benefits of Vagus Nerve Stimulation?

vagus nerve Mar 26, 2021

While it's entirely possible to focus too much attention on the things that can wrong when the Vagus Nerve is not working very well, that's an important part of the learning process for many who just have no clue.

However, in the spirit of balance, I want to share what the benefits of Vagus Nerve Stimulation can be.
What Type of Stimulation?

What Do You Mean by Benefits?
Benefits refer to anything that is relieving, taking away an unpleasant sensation or symptom, and/or producing an unintended outcome that the subject appreciates and is helped by.
These will be from both an objective (blood...

Thanks everyone for an exciting journey! was created to offer a full guidebook on how to do Transcutaneous Auricular Vagus Nerve Stimulation through the microcurrent stimulation platform provided through TensPros w/ inspiration from the Dr. Nemechek Autonomic Medicine Office.

We launched the mini online course in late 2019.

But as 2020 began to take hold, we made the executive decision to offer the entire mini-course free of cost for the duration of 2020.


Now that 2021 has come, we feel it is time to continue the journey.

While we definitely want to continue helping everyone on the planet, the realities of offering a free mini-course that provides guidance on how to clip microcurrent to your ear is fraught with logistical challenges.

Noticeably, in the 13 months or so since launching, and having been utilized by...
