Have you ever heard of the VAGUS NERVE?

This nerve starts from two thick stems in our brain’s cerebellum and the brainstem. From there it spreads into branches and wanders down to the bottom of your torso, touching your heart and most major organs.

This includes your stomach, small intestines, colon, and rectum.

You can visualize your VAGUS NERVE like a tree with the root system spreading all the way down in your torso, followed by the two thick stems looking like a trunk, and finally the brain as the foliage. 

The VAGUS NERVE communicates emotional messages between your brain and the rest of your organs, truly making it a body-mind connection issue. 

Anger, frustration, anxiety, stress, and depression could actually result in digestive health issues such as SIBO, diarrhea, constipation, and esophageal inflammation.

It’s a very interesting topic, affecting millions of Americans.
