This Nerve Keeps You Alive, So Take Care Of It – Here’s How!
If you could do just one thing for your health, what would you do?
Join a gym?
Improve your sleep habits?
Try a new diet?
Here’s one more suggestion: take care of your vagus nerve.
Most people think that nerves are simply cables that transmit information between the brain and the other organs. However, the vagus nerve is special. First, it’s more like a highway than a cable as it connects your brain to ALL of your major organs. Second, the nerve itself is responsible for pretty much everything from your heartbeat to controlling the inflammation levels in your body.
Improving the tone of your vagus nerve will:
help you lose weight by regulating your appetite
reduce inflammation (skin issues, joint pain, and so on)
reduce stress levels by helping you relax faster
improve your mental health.
This book will teach you everything you need to know about the vagus nerve: from the scientific foundation of polyvagal theory to practical techniques for vagus nerve stimulation.
Here’s what you’ll learn:
Why the vagus nerve used to be so underrated
How your body manages (or fails to manage) stress – and how you can help it
How to stimulate your vagus nerve with natural techniques such as yoga
Self-care strategies that help keep the vagus nerve healthy
And much more!
