Strong Vagal Tone Is the Secret to Health
Strong vagal tone is the secret to health. Low vagal tone means the brain's communication with the body is diminished.
The vagal nerve activates the branch of the autonomic nervous system called parasympathetic. Digestion, detoxification, and immune functions are only turned on when the body is in a parasympathetic state. Simply put: when stress is on, digestion is off.
We should optimally be in a Vagal State (parasympathetic) 80 percent of the time, but many people struggle to be in this state at any point during their day. This is because stress inhibits the vagal response. There are consequences: the body's essential processes shut down.
The Body Doesn't Work without Vagal Tone
- In the brain, strong vagal tone helps control anxiety and depression.
- In the stomach, strong vagal tone stimulates stomach acid, for optimal digestion.
- In the intestines, strong vagal tone triggers peristalsis. These muscle contractions allow food and waste to move through the digestive tract. Low vagal tone is a primary cause of constipation.
- In the pancreas, strong vagal tone triggers enzyme production and release for digestion.
- In the liver, strong vagal tone triggers detoxification and blood sugar functions.
- In the gallbladder, strong vagal tone triggers the release of bile, which rids the body of toxins and breaks down fat.
- In the heart, vagal tone controls heart rate and blood pressure. Strong vagal tone lowers the risk of heart disease.
- In the bladder, strong vagal tone allows for bladder retention, so low vagal tone can cause frequent urination.
- In the reproductive organs and genitals, strong vagal tone supports fertility and sexual arousal.
