For those not familiar with the vagus nerve, the authors tell us that it’s an information superhighway transmitting data between the brain, heart, gut, immune system and many other organs, and is unfortunately, since it serves so many parts of our bodies, detrimentally affected by stress. With an easy to understand introduction, the book then lays out over 100 simple, well-illustrated exercises that we can all do to alleviate stress, depression, anxiety, pain and digestive conditions. From balance and breathing to hearing, sight and touch exercises, we learn to improve the stimulation needed for the brain-gut and brain-heart axes to function more predictably and effectively. It’s very approachable and makes complete sense!
