Your vagus nerve is one of the most important channels for sending messages to and from the brain to the body
Your Vagus Nerve
The Vagus nerve serves as the master controller of our immune cells, organs, and stem cells along with your mood, digestion, memory, cognitive function, blood pressure, and many other aspects of your health.
It also connects with 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.
How to Detoxify the Vagus Nerve
Stimulating the vagus nerve with topically applied essential oils (behind the ear lobe on the mastoid bone) can help manually override impaired function.
The lipid soluble essential oils are able to directly and immediately access the nerve in a way that other supplements or remedies cannot.
Facilitating an increase of the activity of the vagus nerve and the corresponding neurotransmitters and hormones help return the body to balance.
When these systems are working optimally, the body will likely start to move and release heavy metals and toxins stored in the nerve.
THE VAGUS NERVE PREVENTS INFLAMMATION
It regulates the body’s immune response. Facilitating an increase of the activity of the vagus nerve and the corresponding neurotransmitters and hormones help return the body to balance.
HELPS YOU MAKE MEMORIES
Studies show that stimulating your vagus nerves strengthen's your memory. Treatments such as Essential & Hemp Oil applications to your Vagus Nerve are promising for conditions like Alzheimer Disease.
LINKED TO POSITIVE EMOTIONS
Studies found that stimulating the vagus nerve dramatically reduces the severity of depression. Combining mindfulness meditation with MJOMS Body Oils create a double whammy that lowers inflammation and improves the brain's ability to manage stress and anxiety.
HELPS YOU BREATHE
“Breathing deeply immediately relaxes the body because it stimulates the vagus nerve, which runs from the neck to the abdomen and is in charge of turning off the ‘fight or flight’ reflex. Stimulating the vagus nerve, activates your relaxation response, reducing your heart rate and blood pressure.
INTIMATELY INVOLVED WITH YOUR HEART
The vagus nerve is responsible for controlling the heart rate via electrical impulses. Stimulating the vagus nerve to the heart has a really powerful effect on slowing the heart rate. And this, specifically, is what relaxes us.
INITIATES YOUR BODY'S RELAXATION RESPONSE
When your fight or flight responses are engaged—pouring out stress hormones, the vagus nerve tells your body to chill out. The vagus nerve is essentially the queen of the parasympathetic nervous system — a.k.a. the “rest and digest,” or the “chill out” one — so the more we do things that “stimulate” or activate it, like deep breathing, the more we banish the effects of stress.
TRANSLATES BETWEEN YOUR GUT AND YOUR BRAIN
Your gut uses the vagus nerve like a walkie-talkie to tell your brain how you’re feeling via electric impulses. Your gut feelings are very real. The vagus nerve has been described as “largely responsible for the mind-body connection,” for its role as a mediator between thinking and feeling. When people say ‘trust your gut,’ they really mean ‘trust your vagus nerve.’
