The vagus nerve is the second largest nerve in the body in Broomfield, Colorado,

second only to the spinal cord, which is of course located in your vertebral column, and from which many other nerves spring. The term “vagus” comes from the same word root as “vagabond,“ and implies wandering. That’s exactly what the vagus nerve does; it wanders throughout the body, connecting many of the internal organs to the brainstem. Consequently, many of the symptoms of vagus nerve dysfunction are visceral.

What causes vagus nerve dysfunction in Broomfield, Colorado?

Excessive alcohol, excessive spicy foods, poor posture, gastrointestinal problems, and chronic anxiety, fatigue and stress. Sounds like trauma to me.
Let’s look at some of the symptoms of vagus nerve dysfunction. These symptoms often include things like anxiety, obesity and weight gain, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, delayed stomach emptying, difficulty swallowing, dizziness, fainting and chronic heartburn.
Also, vagus nerve dysfunction leads to chronic inflammatory conditions. These conditions include things like Heart Disease, Diabetes, lung issues like Bronchitis and Emphysema, lack of bone growth, depression, cancer, and anger problems / excessive anger.

Stimulating the vagus nerve is helpful for a variety of conditions in Broomfield, Colorado.

Vagus nerve stimulation helps conditions like poor circulation, memory problems, mood disorders, mental diseases, autism, alcoholism, tinnitus (which is a chronic ringing in the ears), and even Fibromyalgia.

How do we go about stimulating the vagus nerve? How do we go about helping all these conditions in Broomfield, Colorado?

There are actually many ways to stimulate the vagus nerve: Singing and chanting; laughter stimulates the vagus nerve; cold (splashing yourself with cold water) is very helpful for the vagus nerve; probiotics in the gut; deep slow breathing and other breathing exercises; regular exercise; intermittent fasting; sleeping on your right side helps the vagus nerve; gargling is good for the vagus nerve; dietary changes, especially adding more seafood to your diet; acupuncture can be very good for the vagus nerve; stimulating the gag reflex with a tongue depressor is helpful for the vagus nerve; eating fiber; chewing gum; tensing the stomach muscles; sunlight is very good for the vagus nerve; things like yoga and tai chi; and of course massage and meditation or prayer. There’s a fine line between meditation and prayer. We might go into that another time.
