Vagus Nerve Stimulation, What's the Hype?

The Vagus nerve is one of the primary parasympathetic cranial nerves and drives the digestive system. It is one of the most important nerves in the body.  It has an important role in regulation of metabolic homeostasis and plays a key role in neuro-endocrine-immune axis to maintain homeostasis through its different pathways. It helps regulate many critical aspects of human physiology including heart rate, blood pressure, sweating, decreasing inflammation, digestion, and even speaking. Vagus nerve stimulation is important in preventing, treating, and reducing the health effect below.  Vagus  nerve stimulation has been shown to help treat or reduce seizures, epilepsy, mental illness (anxiety, depression, PTSD), digestive diseases and issues, pelvic floor disorders, celiac disease, gluten intolerance, cognitive decline, reflex, and more. Vagus nerve stimulation can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions. Vagus nerve stimulation can be achieved with proper tongue posture (tongue suctioned to the roof of the mouth or palate). When someone has low tongue posture, the vagus nerve is not being stimulated which can cause many detrimental or uncomfortable health issues. A myofunctional therapy  program will help you achieve vagus nerve stimulation by accomplishing proper tongue posture.
