The vagus nerve is your body’s master reset button. Vagus means wandering in Latin, so the nerve was called the “wandering” nerve for the circuitous path it takes from the brain to all the organs in the chest and abdomen. The vagus nerve influences heart rate, respiration, and digestion, but it’s also the brain’s way of monitoring what is going on with those organs. The vagus nerve is your CEO of calm. It’s the commander-in-chief of your parasympathetic nervous system. The vagus nerve has the important job of ending your body’s fight-or-flight response once a stress has passed. That is why vagus nerve stimulation is effective for mood, and has been approved as a treatment for depression. The Vagus Nerve arises from the medulla in the brain and passes through the skull down within the chest cavity where it branches off in multiple directions to innervate organs and muscles. 80 to 90 percent of the nerve fibers are devoted to sending information from the organs/gut back to the brain. The Vagus nerve is responsible for speech, swallowing, keeping the larynx open for breathing, slowing heart rate, monitoring and initiating digestive processes, and modulating inflammation, among other actions. The Vagus nerve is the main line of communication between the brain and the energy-producing digestive tract. It also relays information to the brain from what is known as the Enteric Nervous System (ENS) our "second brain" controlling the digestive process; it is made up of over 500 million neurons that surround the digestive tract. Vagus nerve stimulation can also relieve migraines and quench inflammation. Most of the traffic in the vagus (80% of its messages) travel upstream from the body to the brain. That’s why the vagus is so important for mood. It monitors the organs to determine if all is well, and when it is, then the mind can rest easy. Contented.
What will resetting our Vagus Nerve do for us? If properly stimulated it can: Turn on neurogenesis, helping our brains sprout new brain cells. Rapidly turn off stress, hyper-arousal, and fight/flight via the relaxation response.Sharpen our memories. Fight inflammatory disease. Help us resist high blood pressure.Block cortisol and other oxidizing agents that age and deteriorate us. Block body-wide inflammation the major agent of aging and poor health. Help us overcome depression and anxious overwhelm. Help us sleep better.Raise levels of human growth hormone. Help us overcome insulin resistance. Turn down allergic responses. Lower chances of getting stress and tension headaches. Help spare and grow our mitochondria a key to our energy levels. Affect our overall ability to live longer, healthier, and more energetic lives. Wow!
How to Activate the Vagus Nerve? This nerve can become underdeveloped/deactivated if the body's in a constant state of fight-or-flight due to the stress and anxiety that comes with living in today's society. This keeps the sympathetic nervous system in survival overdrive: your breathing becomes rapid and shallow, your heart rate increases and digestion becomes impaired. Vagus nerve stimulation can be turned on by breathing and relaxation exercises... deep/slow belly breathing, holding your breath, cold water immersion, chanting…..
To practice deep breathing, inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth. Breathe more slowly.Breathe more deeply, from the belly. Exhale longer than you inhale. https://sites.google.com/site/
The acts of chanting, both listening and vocalizing, stimulate the vagus nerve through muscle movements in the mouth, like those important to speech and those that work the larynx for breathing. The nerve also connects to vocal chords and receives some sensation from the outer ear; thus the acts of vocalizing and listening can influence it.
How does mercury affect human animals and why is this important now? Amalgam dental fillings and vaccinations containing mercury specifically affect humans disrupting many metabolic functions leading to sickness. Ingested mercury blocks the action of several key enzymes in humans and other animals.” Ocean level mercury has tripled so much of the fish we are eating is full of mercury. Once in the human body, mercury acts as a neurotoxin, interfering with the brain and nervous system. Continued exposure leads to the accumulation of mercury in the body.Exposure to mercury can be particularly hazardous for pregnant women and small children. Even in low doses, mercury may affect a child's development, delaying walking and talking, shortening attention span and causing learning disabilities. Less frequent, high dose prenatal and infant exposures to mercury can cause mental retardation, cerebral palsy, deafness and blindness.
The importance of resetting the Vagus Nerve came through a shamanic telestic session. A key piece of intel for the human species at this time! “The vagus nerve in humans is not directly involved in the management of body temperature. It operates more as an electrical switchboard, relaying information between the two branches of the autonomic nervous system, the enteric nervous system the organs and the brain. Its main function in the body is to maintain energy balance, ie normal metabolism by switching connections between the organs and the brain through a system of neurotransmitters and enzymes. It has been called ‘the mirror of the central nervous system.’ (It is also involved in the production of oxytocin, through the activation of mirror neurons.) The mirroring attention is multi-faceted. Now that the Aeon Sophia is lucid in Her Dreaming, the mirroring function of the vagus system is activated at the level of the Gaia-Sapiens exchange, but She is not receiving sufficient data on human metabolic activity at a species level in order to maintain an optimum and stable temperature in the environment..... Some of the ways given in the tesletic session for resetting the Vagus Nerve were yawning, belly laughs, shouting, stretching back to look at the sky and immersing our heads in a bucket of freezing water, laying on the ground and looking at the stars (physical connection with the earth enables us to manage our own body temperatures efficiently.) The original cause of the malfunction was moving away from sleeping on the earth and looking at the stars, missing the electrical firing of the vagus nerve in the brain and the burst of Her psyche into our brains.”
Remember deep slow breaths, freezing water immersion, belly laughs, yawning, shouting, laying on the earth and looking at the stars, get rid of all mercury in your teeth, detox, align chakra system and more!
Don't delay: Reset! Andrea
