Simple Exercises to Stimulate the Vagus Nerve

Simple Exercises to Stimulate the Vagus Nerve

An illustrated guide to help beat stress, depression, anxiety, pain and digestive problems


Do you want to improve your physical, mental and emotional health?

Then turn your attention to the most important parts of your body: your brain and nervous system. The authors demonstrate how the brain and nervous system control all the processes in the body and show you specific exercises that you can do to support them. The vagus nerve plays a key role in this. It helps to regulate almost all the organs and has a huge impact on our health and wellbeing. Together with the insular cortex – the part of the brain that links information from inside our bodies with our sensory experiences – the vagus nerve informs how we perceive ourselves and our bodies.

Learning how to stimulate the vagus nerve and the neural components of your inner perception will give you a simple and effective way to treat your own depression, anxiety and digestive issues, as well as pain, movement disorders and symptoms of stress. Based on the latest research in the field, the authors show you over 100 exercises to stimulate the vagus nerve and insular cortex, giving you the tools you need to activate your own ability for self-healing.
