Calling All Hrv-Recording People

What does triggering your gag reflex do for your HRV scores?? I am genuinely curious, and I think this technique is under-rated as a way to stimulate your vagus nerve.


Go on, stick that hand down your throat. No shame.

    how about triggering the diving reflex and hrv. eg. submerge face in to cold water for as long as you can, with eyes open

    fake it till you make it

  • We already have good data on cold water in general. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21941017


    Interesting about eyes being open, though. Why do you say that? Intuitively, it makes sense somehow. The whole face is very "vagal". I get an increase when I intensely stare at something, as if I was hunting.

    Not sure how much difference the open eyes would make, If any,

    But was reading some related comments...

    Worth reading the whole thread, but the first eye comment is here;
