Let’s Talk about the Vagus Nerve

“A lot of conversations by organizations and providers about the importance of the Vagus Nerve in the last few years. Chiropractic has been discussing the importance of this master nerve of the body for 126 years.

When the body’s innate systems can communicate clearly and then adapt to life …health occurs. It’s as simple as that and it is divinely and innately made to keep you healthy. Chiropractic – more than just neck and back pain – it’s about optimal health and well-being.

“There’s a single nerve that connects all of your vital organs — and it might just be the future of medicine”… or was it CHIROPRACTIC that stated this over 120 years ago. The wandering nerve The vagus nerve starts in the brainstem, just behind the ears. It travels down each side of the neck, across the chest and down through the abdomen. ‘Vagus’ is Latin for ‘wandering’ and indeed this bundle of nerve fibres roves through the body, networking the brain with the stomach and digestive tract, the lungs, heart, spleen, intestines, liver and kidneys, not to mention a range of other nerves that are involved in speech, eye contact, facial expressions and even your ability to tune in to other people’s voices. It is made of thousands and thousands of fibres and 80 per cent of them are sensory, meaning that the vagus nerve reports back to your brain what is going on in your organs.

Can you understand now why the freedom of your neck is so vital to your health?”
