Let's Go to Vagus!

Vagus: The System of Radiance

The Vagus Nerve is like a light rail of energetic information that courses through the body and major organs. When it's on track you feel great, but when it's off track you can feel like a train wreck!

The vagus nerve is the longest nerve in our system; it's our major parasympathetic nerve and it has many functions. I see it as the "Mother of all Nerves" because it influences everything and The Vagus slows our heart rate, regulates blood pressure, controls sweating, stimulates digestion, controls vascular tone, and much more. It begins in our brainstem and comes out behind our ears on both sides of our body it moves through the neck, throat, and down into the chest and abdomen, along the way interacting with all of our organs except the bladder. Yep, this nerve is messaging 24/7 to keep you alive and well, just like a good Mama.

When the vagus nerve is not functioning optimally you can experience difficulty breathing, heart palpitations, lack of oxygen flow, poor digestion, tense muscles, pain, headaches, obesity, difficulty swallowing, nausea, epilepsy, seizures, fainting, anorexia, bulimia, blood sugar imbalances, mood swings, TMJ, teeth grinding, ringing in the ears, tinnitus, poor sleep, and sensitivities to foods, chemicals, and the environment. Whew! "when mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy" or more scientifically stated--"low vagal tone" can really derail us. When we feel off, our stress levels increase, often our sleep is affected, our anxiety rises, issues with digestion or pain flare up, we can't seem to catch our breath or breathe deeply, our concentration may dim, etc, etc, etc. This is where we all cry for our "Mama Nerve" to comfort us and bring us back into restful balance.

Working energetically with the vagus nerve can help us to get out of the fight, flight, or freeze response that is often triggered by stress. It can also have a major impact on inflammation and on the immune system. Due to my own experience of 2 car accidents within 6 weeks, I dug into understanding the vagus nerve. I utilized practical tools that anyone can do (I'll show you) and integrated this wisdom into my energy-aligning practice. My clients and I have truly experienced amazing results!

When the vagus nerve is supported, as it can be with energy techniques, the body has a greater capacity to heal. You'll notice your vitality improve and a spring in your step when this Radiant Circuit is balanced and flowing optimally. Among its many functions, the vagus nerve carries the hormone oxytocin, which is our LOVE hormone! Yes, this nerve radiates love only as a good Mother can. I invite you to get a tune-up and tone up your beautiful radiant circuit, the Vagus Nerve.
