About the Vagus Nerve
The Vagus nerve is the commander-in-chief when it comes to having grace under fire.
The vagus nerve is the longest of our 12 cranial nerves and is known as the "wandering nerve" because it has multiple branches that diverge from two thick stems rooted in the cerebellum and brainstem that wander to the lowest part of our abdomen touching our hearts and most major organs along the way.
Vagus means "wandering" in Latin. It meanders all the way down, into the belly, spreading fibers to the tongue, throat, vocal chords, lungs, heart, stomach, intestines and glands that produce anti-stress enzymes and hormones, like:
And Oxytocin, which influences digestion, metabolism and the relaxation response.
The vagus nerve uses the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, and without it we would be unable to breathe. It’s the vagus nerve that keeps you breathing, but it does much more than this, it creates peace, balance, clear thought, conscious creativity and joy in your life.
The Vagus Nerve links the brain to the heart, lungs and gut. It also interacts with the liver, spleen, gallbladder, ureter, reproductive organs, neck, ears, tongue and kidneys. Your parasympathetic nervous system is the master controller of your involuntary nerve center. The Vagus Nerve controls your unconscious bodily functions such as regulating blood pressure, heart rate, digestion of food, sweating, blood glucose balance, kidney function, the release of bile and testosterone. The Vagus Nerve also stimulates the secretion of saliva, assists in controlling taste, releasing tears, and plays a major role in fertility issues and orgasms in women.
Your Vagus Nerve affects all your vital organs. The Vagus Nerve also manages and processes the emotions between the heart, brain and gut; this is why we find ourselves stating things like:
“I have a gut feeling”
“You make me sick to my stomach”
“I have butterflies in my stomach”
Your Vagus Nerve is the intuitive part of you, do not dismiss it, it is your greatest ally. Gut instincts are the unseen healer and guide for much of our lives, do not underestimate the power from within. 90% of your vagus nerve health is dependent on gut health. This is why the large intestine is called the mother of all organs and it houses 70 to 80% of your immune system. So do not dismiss or take daily cleansing lightly of this vital organ because when your large intestine slows down, it affects every other organ and system in the body.
The Danger of Vagus Nerve Dysfunction
Without proper techniques and strategies to cleanse the large intestine and master your emotions you will suffer from Vagus Nerve dysfunction.
Vagus nerve dysfunction can cause conditions such as obesity, abnormal slow heartbeat, difficulty swallowing, digestive disorders and diseases, fainting, mood disorders, B12 deficiency, long standing inflammation, chronic cough, autoimmune diseases, cancer, depression, seizures and the list goes on. Vagus Nerve damage can also be caused by diabetes, alcoholism and upper respiratory viral infections. Unmanaged stress, fatigue and anxiety are major contributors to vagus nerve inflammation.
A bad diet and poor posture are a dangerous combination for vagus nerve health. What most do not realize is this continual vagus nerve inflammation will lead to internal scar tissue formation around the vagus nerve and can shut down its healing abilities for a lifetime. Belly Button Therapy is one of the most effective ways to prevent Vagus Nerve dysfunction.
Healthy vagal tone creates a super strong immune system, a healthy gut, healthy blood pressure, inflammation, elimination, proper decision making, critical thinking skills, healthy peristalsis for healthy bowel movements and long lasting healthy relationships, beginning and ending with you.
