TIL from this #The Book Club 📚 - the vagus nerve connects the gut and brain, through the gut-brain axis. It communicates information from the gut to the brain using neurotransmitters (such as serotonin and glutamate) and gut hormones, all of which play a vital role in sleep, mood, pain, stress and hunger. I had no idea! #Gut Health #Bio hacking

i've newly studying this area and found this as a fantastic jumping point for finding connections to my gut issues and stress. Working with my GI I’m doing better than ever. while i believe the author is on the right track...with respect to addressing many cases of digestive tract problems. Yet, Vagus Nerve (one of the twelve Cranial Nerves) dysfunction can often be managed very nicely with Chiropractic or Osteopathic spinal work, and I wasn't able to find any mention of this in this book....which is a HUGE omission. There are also some acupuncture/acupressure points which may be of value.

I didn’t even know you could damage your vagus nerve in such a way 😰 looked it up and sure enough stress is one way to cause it 🫥
