Are you struggling with gut issues, battling anxiety and can’t lose weight? Chances are your body lost it’s ability to keep inflammation in check. The vagus nerve is in charge of sensing what’s happening in your organs, sending the information to your brain and keeping the inflammation response in check. Chronic overeating, leaky gut issues, not taking deep breaths and imbalanced gut bugs cause your vagus nerve to lose it’s control of your body’s inflammation. In this episode Dr. Jannine Krause breaks down the inflammatory reflex, how the vagus nerve loses control of the reflex and what you can do to get it back up and running.
• Why acupuncture, meditation and yoga calm inflammation
• How your anti-inflammation reflex works
• How chronic gut issues, stress and trauma destroy your anti-inflammation reflex
• Why your adaptogenic herbs aren’t calming your stress response
