Publisher's Summary

When your lover kisses your throat or the skin behind your ear, this pair of nerves helps you feel it. If a doctor tickles certain spots in your throat with a cotton swab, it causes you to gag. When you eat, it helps food move through your digestive tract. Why should you care, though, about the vagus nerve? After all, it doesn’t sound as exciting as Vegas. 

If you have certain illnesses or symptoms, a poorly functioning vagus nerve could be the culprit; that’s particularly true of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. This nerve is the longest cranial nerve in the body, running from the brain stem to the colon and affecting many organs in the body.

The good news is that you can take simple actions to stimulate your vagus nerve to function better. This information can be especially important for people with treatment-resistant depression. Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) seems to reset chemical imbalances in the mood centers of the brain. 

In this easy-to-follow guide, you understand the vagus nerve, the autonomic nervous system (ANS), and polyvagal theory. 

This audiobook explains how vagus nerve stimulation works and examines the nerve in relation to:

  • Fatigue
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Epilepsy
  • Depression
  • ADHD and other cognitive issues
  • Weight management
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Roemheld syndrome
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Intestinal issues and gastroparesis disease

Useful for body workers, caregivers, psychotherapists, as well as anyone who experiences the symptoms of chronic stress and depression, this audiobook shows how you can bring the body into the state of wellness that activates its innate capacity to heal. 

It’s your body, the only one you have. Don’t let a busy life or other excuses keep you from understanding this crucial nerve. You can put an end to these disorders. There is no need to continue living with them. So, get the audiobook now and learn how to cure your vagus nerve naturally to live the painless and stress-free life that you deserve!

Vagus Nerve - Very Technical

The information was well thought out and delivered. Listening to the description of this book, I thought I would get more information on how to naturally manage the Vagus Nerves System. There was a couple chapters on how to naturally manage it and most on the medical/technical description.

Nice one

The anatomy of the vagus nerve is actually a pair of nerves coming from the base of the skull on either side of the spine and then it has many branches going to the organs. It is not one nerve running down the length of the spine. The procedure of using electrical stimulation of the vagus has shown benefit for depression, but this signal is sent to the brain, not the heart.
