Family Wellness Practical Applications:

-Do A Gratitude Log

-Eat Bitter Foods

-Take Time To Breathe

-Vagus Nerve Exercises:

  • Gargle with water

  • Sing when no one is listening

  • Humming fires the Vagus nerve

  • Initiate a gag reflex.  Do not attempt this right after you've had a meal.  Slowly depress the back of your tongue with your finger or a dull object, like a spoon.  The gag reflex is a function of the Vagus Nerve.  This stimulates your parasympathetic nervous system.

-Add Chiropractic Adjustments to improve your digestion signaling, and as part of your Family Wellness Lifestyle
