Re: Relief from vaso-vagal episodes

From: Jeanne


I am going to give your technique a try. What's to lose? To answer your question, VV does not appear to be hereditary in my family. I've wondered if medication can be a trigger but I've had most episodes without that being the case. I am not sure we'll ever know a cause since there are so many things that can bring on an episode - some could be hormonal, some could be heart related - sometimes it's pain ....
