Neuromodulation of inflammation

Video explaining vagus nerve stimulator to decrease TNF and inflammation
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/0...n_5420248.html

Although the title of the video is "Nerve Stimulator Could Change Arthritis Treatment", the video talks about how nerve stimulation can decrease inflammation and may one day take the place of anti-inflammatory meds. There was recently a small clinical trial showing success in 6 out of 8 individuals. The company Set Point believes it could work in Crohn's disease.
