The Vagus Nerve
The nerve you need to know about
6 Ways To Restore Its Tone

The vagus nerve. Simply described, it’s the sensory highway that tells your brain what’s going on in your organs—especially the digestive tract, lungs, heart, spleen, liver, and kidneys. It’s also an essential part of the parasympathetic nervous system, which helps calm our organs and deal with the aftermath of a fight-or-flight, adrenaline-response situation. You’re probably already getting the hint—the vagus nerve plays a huge role in overall wellness. But guess what? It can also be behind chronic inflammation and pain.

If your vagus nerve is functioning at its best, your body can relax faster after sensing danger, (like a grizzly bear encounter) or just a perceived threat (like panic about public speaking). But if that nerve is suffering from low tone, it has a harder time regulating inflammation—and that can end up causing damage to organs and blood vessels if it persists. If you experience fatigue, anxiety, digestive issues, food sensitivities, depression, brain fog, or a sense of despondency—the vagus nerve is always affected. A few easy changes to your diet and daily routine could be just the 180 you need to feel better.
