Mind-Body & Vagus Nerve Connection Summit 2021

Mind-Body & Vagus Nerve Connection Summit 2021

IMPORTANT: Special encore-weekend replay 8/28/2021 – 8/29/2021

You cannot properly address health issues — like gut, immune system or brain disorders — without optimizing vagus nerve function.

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’s 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 neurodegeneration, poor gut function, autoimmunity and cancer.

In fact, the most common sign of poor vagus nerve function is chronic inflammation.

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

Join the Mind-Body and Vagus Nerve Connection Summit to learn how to do that.

The Nervous System & Immune System Relationship

Whether you’re trying to heal from a chronic illness or fight an acute infection, you cannot properly heal when your nervous system is out of whack.

Anecdotal evidence and published scientific studies show that experiencing prolonged stress negatively impacts the immunological state…

And that prolonged elevated psychological stress is associated with increased risk of infection by respiratory viruses.

Because of the demands of modern life and the prevalence of unresolved emotional trauma and lack of ability to handle stress effectively, many people can activate their sympathetic (fight-or-flight) response very readily, but they often struggle to switch it off because of low vagal tone.

This limits the ability to activate the rest-digest-detoxify-heal part of the nervous system, and over time, this leads to chronic inflammation and poor gut function, and consequently, can result in pretty much any chronic disease, including autoimmunity and cancer.

Topics at the Mind-Body & Vagus Nerve Connection Summit 2021

  • 44 expert talks will cover all aspects of vagus nerve dysfunction and its role in health and healing
  • Functions of the vagus nerve
  • The vagus nerve’s role in immunity
  • Connection between healthy vagus function & a healthy gut & biome
  • Links between infections, mitochondrial health & vagus function
  • Techniques to boost your vagus nerve function

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.

The Vagus Nerve & Self-Healing

When faced with a challenge, the body responds by turning on complex adaptive pathways that are turned off when the threat passes.

Two important systems that mediate quick and precise responses to stresses are the nervous and immune systems. These systems are connected physically and physiologically, and share many similarities that facilitate interactions between them.

You cannot have a well-functioning immune system without a healthy nervous system, and vice-versa!

For the immune system to do its job properly, it has to be well-balanced, and the pathway that keeps the immune system balanced is mediated through the vagus nerve, which innervates many of your organs — including the immune organs, such as the thymus, spleen and gut.

Parasympathetic (rest-digest-detoxify-heal) activation of the vagus nerve is required to keep these organs active. In contrast, sympathetic (fight-or-flight) activation will decrease or even shut down the activity of those organs.

Chronic stress and resulting sympathetic dominance will then lead to chronically lowered levels of immune organ activity, higher levels of immune dysregulation and the inability of the immune system to react to threats appropriately.

The bottom line is that whether you are trying to heal from a chronic illness or fight an acute infection, you cannot properly heal when your nervous system is out of whack.

This health event focuses on sharing strategies that can bring balance to your nervous system and therefore your immune system, which will make your whole system more resilient.

With these strategies, you can improve your nervous system and immune system function in a matter of weeks — and take your healing to the next level!
