“Vagus” is Latin for “wandering.”
Your Vagus nerve is your longest nerve, connecting your Brain with almost every organ in the body. It originates in the lower two-thirds of your Brain stem, splits into two branches, and wraps around each side of your upper neck just behind your ears on the mastoid bone. It then travels across the chest and down into your abdomen, connecting your brain with your larynx, pharynx, tongue, ears, lungs, gut, heart, liver, spleen, gallbladder, kidney, pancreas, intestines, and reproductive organs. It also connects with a range of other nerves that are involved in speech, eye contact, facial expressions, and ability to tune in to other people’s voices.
Your Vagus nerve’s tendrils, made primarily of sensory fibres, allows it to serve as a two-way messenger, passing chemical signals using highly defined micro-organisms too orchestrate messaging between the organs and the brain to keep your body healthy. For example, this two- way communication allows your brain to direct the functions of your heart, major blood vessels, airways, lungs, oesophagus, stomach, and intestines, and for those organs to return important information to the brain. When your Vagus nerve is working optimally, you are more likely to recover more quickly after stress, injury, or illness.
You might think of your Vagus nerve as fibre-optic cables or a walkie-talkie that sends instructions between your body and your brain. This important channel for communication between the brain and body, known as the mind-body connection, plays a critical role in your ability to reduce inflammation and maintain a state of balance and health called homeostasis.
Your Vagus nerve is therefore your primary channel of communication between your brain and your body. Like a highway, your Vagus nerve connects your brain with your Gut, Heart, Immune system, and all of your other major organs. It sends messages in both directions. Your Vagus nerve assesses what your body needs, then directs your Brain to release the appropriate chemical messengers, like hormones and neurotransmitters, that regulate and control all of the unconscious processes in your body, including your heart rate, digestion, appetite, mood, pain threshold, sleep, memory, cognitive function, and your Immune response.
It would be an understatement to say that the Vagus nerve is crucial in proper communication with signals within your body too maintain a state of balance. You may experience feelings of pain, fatigue, brain fog, stress, anxiety, or depression, as well as a number of neurological and even autoimmune issues.
How to Support Vagus Health
It would be quite ignorant to think it is something that can be repaired by popping a modern-day pill and all is sorted. So too, since the body is orchestrated by this Vagus nerve, too think by merely spending time bringing various organs in the body into alignment, by detoxing and supplying essential nutrition to support optimal balance and functioning, is going to do the trick. Of course, it helps in the bigger equation but more importantly it is important to assist the internal balance through supporting the miniscule messengers in the system – our own healthy micro-organisms.
Since all these originate from within the gut it is good enough to assume that supporting optimal gut health remains key to the process. Not just a healthy functioning gut from a cleanse prospective, as arranged in order of importance for the gut and liver, but a healthy gut from a support perspective supporting good healthy bacteria to do the messaging as found in the Imsyser 12 strain “live” liquid Probiotic:
Never before, in history, has microbiome been under the microscope as now, not only in the understanding of the importance of these micro-organisms throughout the body. I believe the messaging to our dedicated clients of the past 10 years might have previously been lost but catch up time is of the “now”. Imsyser is perfectly aligned within the scope of natural health when we refer to detox products through to natural heath support products, as mentioned within this blog.
