Insomnia disorder is causing great economic burden to the society. Conventional pharmacotherapies are with multiple adverse effects to people. Auricular acupuncture (AA) inspired us to invent transcutaneous auricular vagus nerve stimulation (taVNS) years ago. We accidently found that taVNS could improve patients sleeping conditions in depressed and in epilepsy patients. And, taVNS is with little side effect. We considered that taVNS is a promising alternative therapy for insomnia disorder with a bright future.
