alila-medical-media_vagusnerveScientists have found a link to vagus nerve inactivity (which controls heart rate variability) and cancer (as well as other serious health issues). An inactive vagus nerve has also been shown to be a culprit in food sensitivities, eating disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, stomach issues and more.

The vagus nerve connects to the brain, gut (intestines, stomach), heart, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, kidney, ureter, spleen, lungs, fertility organs (females), neck (including the pharynx, larynx, esophagus), ears and tongue.

There are now surgeries comprised of opening the brain and placing an activator near the vagus nerve to keep it stimulated. They often call it a “pacemaker for the brain”. In some cases, it also prevents seizures.

What the medical community is NOT announcing, however, is that chiropractic adjustments keep the vagus nerve stimulated. It’s been long-known that chiropractic patients in general are healthier than non-chiropractic patients and this is likely one of the reasons.
