    51. Vagus Nerve Stimulation Session of the Day: 2-minute Burnout Recovery

You CANNOT properly address health issues — like gut, immune system or brain disorders — WITHOUT optimizing vagus nerve function. Learn to ACTIVATE the vagus nerve to REBALANCE your nervous system and help boost your immune system and overall health!

The vagus nerve forms a bi-directional “super-highway” between your brain and the majority of your internal organs. Unless your vagus nerve is in good shape and activates readily when it is supposed to, the brain-body as well as the body-brain communication will be disrupted.

Many people in this modern world overstimulate their nervous systems and become desensitized to chronic stress. Over time, this can lead to low vagal tone, which has been linked to a variety of mental and physical health issues, including chronic inflammation, neurodegeneration, poor gut function, autoimmunity and cancer.

And we know this to be true: you cannot FULLY heal leaky gut, microbiome function or brain issues WITHOUT optimizing your vagus function…

Join us to learn the strategies for doing so!

Our 44 expert talks will cover all aspects of vagus nerve dysfunction and its role in health and healing, as well as a wide range of mind- and body-based strategies to increase vagal tone and rebalance the autonomic nervous system.

Each day of the summit ends with a unique “Vagus Nerve Stimulation Session” that can be used right away to help improve your vagus function — join us and take your healing to the next level!
