In a world where our lives and daily rhythms are becoming increasingly demanding, being able to implement effective techniques to regulate our stress levels is essential to maintaining a healthy mind and body. The most significant component of the parasympathetic nervous system, which regulates our ability to "rest and digest," the vagus nerve is an information superhighway transmitting information between the brain and the heart, the gut, the immune system, and many organs. By stimulating the vagus nerve, you can work with your parasympathetic nervous system to reduce stress and anxiety, regulate digestion and appetite, moderate heart rate and blood pressure, and balance systems throughout the body.
Backed up by the latest scientific research, this book will guide you through more than 100 effective exercises to naturally and gently stimulate your vagus nerve and in turn help manage anxiety, depression, inflammation, sleep, and digestive disorders. The simple techniques include a variety of balance, hearing, sight, breathing, and touch exercises. By improving the quality of stimulation the vagus nerve receives, these neuroeffective exercises enable the brain-gut and brain-heart axes to function more predictably and effectively, providing a solid foundation for mental health, physical resilience, and self-healing.
With this comprehensive and accessible guide to natural vagus nerve stimulation, anyone can apply these powerful self-help techniques and experience a more balanced and resilient mind and body.
