How the vagus nerve influences your decision-making ability AND your physical and mental health

May 23, 2020 | Health, Lifestyle

If you’re sitting there thinking, what the heck is my vagus nerve and why do I need to care about it? You’re not alone. I had never heard of it myself until a few years ago.

Well, the vagus nerve is the longest nerve that emanates from the brain. It links your lungs, heart, neck and abdomen to the brain and affects a number of crucial functions like taste, swallowing, speech, digestion, respiration and heart rate functioning. Beyond all that, it factors into many functions we need to get through our every day lives.

In fact, according to Psychology Today, when you activate the vagus nerve through “vagal breathing”, it “not only lowers defenses, relaxes the body, and slows heart rate, but also gives people access to their higher mental powers; studies show that, among other things, it improves decision-making.”

And right now, so many of us need all the focus and mental agility we can get to creatively solve some of the new challenges we’re facing.

If you are currently an entrepreneur or thinking of launching a side hustle so you can earn extra income, learning how to strengthen your vagus nerve will support you in your success.

So today I wanted to share a FREE resource from Dr. Eva Detko. It’s a quick-to-read, easy-to-implement, 12-page Vagus Nerve 101 eGuide that will teach you why the vagus nerve is so critical to health and longevity and what you can do to improve your vagal tone.

Low vagal tone has been linked to:

+ Chronic fatigue

+ Fibromyalgia

+ Heart disease

+ Diabetes

+ IBS/IBD/SIBO/leaky gut

+ Autoimmune conditions

+ Neurological conditions

+ Cancer

You simply CANNOT properly address physical and mental health issues — like gut, immune system or brain disorders — WITHOUT optimizing vagus nerve function.

In this eGuide, you’ll find strategies to increase your vagal tone, plus facts on polyvagal theory, indications of low vagal tone and the connection between strong vagus function and a healthy immune system.

One of the additional bonuses to downloading this FREE guide is that you’ll get access to the online Mind, Body & The Vagus Nerve Connection Summit taking place on June 15-21, 2020 — over 40 experts teaching you how to ACTIVATE the vagus nerve to REBALANCE your nervous system and help boost your immune system and overall health.

Improve your focus, boost your decision-making ability, and calm your nervous system with the tips in this free guide. I’ve found it very helpful in understanding how we can tone the vagus nerve to optimize our vibrancy.
