Paranoid health loons now claim SHOWERING is bad for you

(Natural News)
Now, suddenly, after centuries of evolution, humans who wish to cleanse their bodies of potentially infectious substances are overdoing it and actually harming themselves in the process.

Yes, the daily shower has now been added to the long and growing list of things deemed unhealthy, unsanitary, and downright dangerous by hacks whose primary job is to fill space on someone’s blog.

As noted by someone calling themselves Josh Clark at How Stuff Works:

It’s conventional wisdom that the more you shower, the cleaner you are. Lathering up with a healthy dose of soap and washing it off with a nice stream of hot water should kill any germs on your skin. Studies by medical researchers have shown quite the opposite, however. Using plain old soap (as opposed to antimicrobial or antibacterial soap) doesn’t kill skin-borne bacteria. It actually disturbs microcolonies of skin flora and fauna, transferring them to the surrounding environment — like your shower, for instance. For this reason, surgical teams and patients are generally restricted from showering immediately before entering an operating room.

The writer cites this source from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Journal of Emerging Infectious Diseases, but there is no headline for this particular edition readily indicating the research he references. Maybe it’s buried in one of the articles and if that’s the case, Clark should have linked to that particular piece of research specifically.

He goes on to write this in the very next paragraph: “Still, showering regularly is recommended for good personal hygiene,” and, “Showering too much, however, can have a potentially damaging effect on your skin.”

So, which is it? 

The point is this: The research and the article don’t pass the (ahem) smell test.

Think about it. If showering were so doggone unhealthy, how come there isn’t more disease and pestilence in the world, and especially the first world, where daily showering and bathing is routine?

Also, what is “too much showering?” Once per day? Once per week? Twice a day? 

If the research being cited above were accurate, wouldn’t people constantly be sick, just from stepping into their shower? 

Some people keep their shower stalls immaculate while others let theirs go for months before cleaning them up; what’s the sickness ratio between clean shower stalls and dirty ones, 1:10? 1:200? 1:1,000? (Related: Shower filters head off water contaminants.)

The article goes onto state that not only is it unhealthy, generally speaking, to shower “often,” people add to their unhealthy hygiene behavior by drying off with a towel. 

More:

Another problem related to showering too often is the use of a towel to dry off. While rubbing yourself dry with a towel is common practice, it’s also a damaging one for your skin. Air drying is the optimal way to dry off following a shower, but if you don’t have time to wait for evaporation or don’t like tracking bathwater throughout your house, you can still use a towel. Just make sure it’s a soft one and use a gentle patting motion to absorb water.

So again — which is it? You can use a towel…or you can’t? 

And aren’t all towels “soft” and “gentle?” Do people use sandpaper to dry off with after a harmful, skin-endangering shower? Air-drying probably is a good thing, but is it really a better way to dry off than using a towel? 

There’s just an awful lot of “maybes” and “perhaps” and “possiblys” in this story. No hard-and-fast conclusions.

The fact is there is more disease in parts of the world where inhabitants don’t have the ability to wash regularly, where there is no access to any soap or clean water. That has been proven in numerous studies for decades.

Why now, all of a sudden, it’s “unhealthy” to take a daily shower, then use — egads! — a towel to dry off with, makes no sense.

YouTube restores Health Ranger video channel without explanation as tech giants feel the heat from censorship backlash

Image: YouTube restores Health Ranger video channel without explanation as tech giants feel the heat from censorship backlash

(Natural News) YouTube, an authoritarian techno-cult run by deranged lunatic Leftists who despise free speech, has restored the Health Ranger video channel without explanation. Upon restoration, almost 100,000 subscribers were stripped from the channel as yet another “F##k You” from YouTube to content creators like me.

The message from YouTube is clear: We can ban you at any time, for any reason, without explanation, with no recourse, and even when we decide to turn your channel back on, we can just delete a third of all your followers, or do anything else we want to screw with your content and silence your voice. (Read YouTubeCensorship.com for more details on YouTube’s outrageous censorship of important voices.)

Like Facebook, Google and Twitter, YouTube has devolved into a left-wing echo chamber where rationality, logic and reason are no longer tolerated. In order to maintain a voice on any of these platforms, you must obediently kow-tow to whatever latest irrational delusion is being pushed by the Left Cult. Those who dare say rational, logical things — such as “there are only two genders” — risk having their accounts terminated and their followers scrubbed. Even the idea of pointing out that men and women have different neurology — a self-evident truth supported by exhaustive scientific study — is not allowed on these left-wing platforms run by the “Left Cult.”

Understand: Logic, science and biological reality are considered “offensive” by the deranged, lunatic Left. And they will ban you for uttering obvious truths such as “children are born as males or females, not ‘undecided’ genders to be ‘assigned’ by doctors at birth.”

TOO LATE: YouTube has already lost all credibility with nearly every intelligent person

If YouTube is trying to win back favor among the tens of millions of users who are being silenced and terminated, they’re too late: The video platform has already lost all credibility.

Even if YouTube reverses its outrageous banning of conservative and libertarian accounts, the world already knows that YouTube can never be trusted again. They can ban your channel at any time, without justification, without explanation and without recourse. YouTube represents true authoritarian evil on the ‘net, and people are fleeing the left-wing platform in droves.

That’s why I’ve announced REAL.video, an alternative to YouTube that protects the free speech of pro-liberty voices. This upcoming video community launches July 4th, and already more than 16,000 people have requested content channels on REAL.video. (Go there now to request yours.)

Almost every day, I’m hearing from people who are being banned by YouTube. They’re telling me, “PLEASE launch REAL.video sooner than July 4th.” Building a massive video community isn’t something that can be done overnight, unfortunately, so it’s going to take a few months to do this right. But the wait will be worth it! REAL.video is being built to:

  • Handle more than one billion video views per month, right out of the gate.
  • Host tens of millions of individual videos, with almost unlimited scalability.
  • Video playback for nearly all popular video formats, web browsers and mobile devices.
  • Robust, rapid video uploading and transcoding.
  • Video embedding into your own web pages.
  • Support for video views, “likes” and social media sharing.
  • Video contests such as the “Most offensive video of the month” contest to exercise the boundaries of free speech. (We will also hosts video contests on the best mockery of fake news CNN and other hilarious topics.)
  • Open support for guns and firearms videos, which are being systematically banned by YouTube.
  • Open support for videos critical of incompetent government, corrupt corporations and the fake news media.
  • A very wide spectrum of free speech (but no video piracy, nudity, porn, animal abuse, terrorism or other illegal content).
  • The BANNING of communists, fascists, Marxists, left-wing lunatics and other who are unsafe to the community. This way, you won’t encounter fascist libtards on REAL.video.

We cannot trust YouTube as a platform: It’s time to re-platform ourselves right now

This is sort of obvious at this point, but none of us can trust YouTube, Google, Facebook or Twitter as “neutral” platforms anymore. We must actively seek out alternatives such as GAB.ai, REAL.video and MeWe.

Even then, we have to be certain that the people who launch and operate these alternative platforms are committed to liberty and freedom, or else they will be easily bought out, compromised or overrun by the left-wing cult that has zero tolerance for actual free speech.

That’s why people are flocking to REAL.video to request content channels there. They know how I’ve been personally attacked, censored, smeared, vilified and death-threated by the Left Cult, and they know how deeply I’m committed to the First Amendment, Second Amendment and individual liberty.

No corporation can compete with the power of sheer passion and personal commitment. While YouTube devolves into a cesspool of left-wing lunacy run by unimaginably stupid libtards who despise real speech, REAL.video will be the new home for genuine free speech on the internet. (That’s also why it will be viciously attacked, DDoS-bombed, smeared and blocked in every way imaginable, just like GAB.ai.)

Request a content channel now at REAL.video. Most importantly, save all your video files so you can begin uploading as we start approving accounts in June.

Bottom line? F##k YouTube. They have no relevance whatsoever for the future of freedom. Every intelligent person should be “re-platforming” right now to get off YouTube, Google, Facebook, Snapchat and Twitter. New alternatives are being launched this year. Stop feeding evil with your participation. Make a choice to stand for online freedom.

Loneliness: A Health Problem That Could Be Deadlier Than Obesity, Study Says



Next Story

Loneliness can reliably be linked to a significant increase in the risk of early mortality, according to a study at Brigham Young University. Head author, Julianne Holt-Lunstad, notes that “substantial evidence now indicates that individuals lacking social connections (both objective and subjective social isolation) are at risk for premature mortality.”

Holt-Lunstad believes the risks associated with loneliness are already greater than such established dangers as obesity:

Several decades ago scientists who observed widespread dietary and behavior changes raised warnings about obesity and related health problems. The present obesity epidemic had been predicted. Obesity now receives constant coverage in the media and in public health policy. The current status of research on the risks of loneliness and social isolation is similar to that of research on obesity 3 decades ago… Current evidence indicates that heightened risk for mortality from a lack of social relationships is greater than that from obesity.

Furthermore, she warns that “researchers have predicted that loneliness will reach epidemic proportions by 2030 unless action is taken.”

Why Are We So Isolated From Each Other?

From the long view, it can be said that Western civilization as a whole has fostered a gradual disintegration of our physical and social ties. With an emphasis on individual goals and an almost fanatical regard for personal achievement, the traditional institutions of family and community and their capacity to provide their members with a sense of belonging and shared purpose have become significantly fragmented.

The family unit has gone from large generations-linked mutual support systems to small and immediate units, sometimes involving single parents whose necessities make it very difficult to create a stable home environment for their children. Add to that the fact that more and more people are not even building families, and our society has more people living alone than at any other time in history. This includes the elderly, who are less likely to find a ‘fit’ living within their children’s families than ever before.

The decline of the ‘community’ is perhaps as significant as the disintegration of the family unit. In Western-style communities, people work as a collection of individual units interacting by specific functions rather than as an interrelated whole with a significant shared identity. Naturally, attempts are made today to join or build ‘communities’ all the time, but like the Meetup model, they are founded on the gathering of select people with similar interests and purposes, rather than a shared embrace of all people within a certain geographical area.

The Rise of Social Media

I believe the rise in prominence of social media has in part been fuelled by the sense of alienation we have long felt within our modern society. I don’t believe social media is the root cause of our loneliness, as some speculate, but rather a symptom of this much longer-standing social problem. Connecting via chats and web pages is just something that we have gotten into the habit of reaching for since it is so immediately accessible. But like any quick fix, it does not end up fulfilling our deeper needs, either individually or as a society.

If we see that our society has been slowly disintegrating over hundreds of years, then it becomes incumbent upon us as a society (if we can still even identify ourselves with our ‘society’) to take measures to remedy this situation. What those measures might be, though, given how things seem to be trending, is a matter of great conjecture.

On Being Alone  

One approach is to first acknowledge that Western society’s emphasis on the individual is not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, I believe that the development of personal integrity, creativity, and autonomy is a critical step in the evolution of human consciousness. Learning how to be alone with oneself is a part of that process. In his work entitled Pensées, French philosopher Blaise Pascal observed that “All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone.”

As evidenced by Eastern gurus and mystics, one can be perfectly content in isolation. This can be greatly facilitated by the practice of meditation and other such methods that give us a direct perception of our energetic connectedness not only with other people, but with all things. In this higher state, the damaging emotional impact of loneliness and social isolation are not experienced.

Our Next Step

Still, the life of the yogi remains for the few. The rest of us, it seems, have come to this planet to interact, share, and love. And we have not incarnated into this dense physical world to get better at virtual relationships. At this stage, we have perhaps gotten a bit too accustomed to social isolation for our own good.

Holt-Lunstad notes that “although living alone can offer conveniences and advantages for an individual, this meta-analysis indicates that physical health is not among them.” She also cites another study that “has demonstrated higher survival rates for those who are more socially connected.” And then there is the seminal 75-Year Harvard University study, where “it was universally clear that without loving and supportive relationships, men in the study were not happy.” The message is becoming clear: we need to come together.

We are perhaps at a larger turning point in our development than most of us realize. It seems that we have reached the extreme edge of the exploration of individualism, and we are readying to move into greater balance with a collective identity. This is not a return to traditional ways, but rather a synthesis of our growth as individuals with the shared experience we are now hungering for. This synthesis signifies the next stage of our evolution.

What does your handshake say about your heart health?


Image: What does your handshake say about your heart health?

(Natural News)
Did you know that your hand grip can be used to gauge your cardiovascular health?

According to researchers at Queen Mary University in London, the strength of a person’s handshake is “an inexpensive way to predict heart health.”

For the study, scientists used handgrip strength, which was measured with a hydraulic machine. Participants were asked to squeeze a handle as strongly as they could for three seconds on both hands. The participants included over 5,000 men and women who were aged 40 to 69 between 2006 to 2010 across 22 locations in the U.K. None of the participants had previous heart conditions. All of the study subjects filled out an extensive questionnaire before they underwent physical exams and gave biological samples. Some of the participants returned for follow-up exams.

The researchers then analyzed magnetic resonance images (MRI scans) of the participants’ hearts, which were compared to data on their hand grip strength. The team determined that a stronger hand grip is connected to heart shape and risk of heart problems. Meanwhile, a weaker grip implied a greater risk of lasting damage from heart conditions. Out of the 5,065 participants, the study found that those with a stronger hand grip pumped more blood per heartbeat even though they had a lower heart mass and had a smaller chance of heart remodeling, which refers to what happens when a patient has high blood pressure or suffers a heart attack. (Related: Good for body and mind: Women who go for a walk at least twice a week reduce their risk of heart failure by 20 percent.)

Data from the study showed that a whopping 17.3 million deaths per year worldwide are due to cardiovascular disease (CVD). Alarmingly, the figure is expected to go up to 23.6 million by 2030.

Dr. Steffen Petersen, the study author, explained that taking these figures into consideration, researchers must soon determine the predictors of CVD to implement evidence-based prevention in individuals who are at risk. Dr. Petersen added that the researchers have confirmed that a stronger handgrip is linked to a healthier heart structure and function. The study was the first of its kind to prove this connection, which was not previously known.

He commented that measuring a person’s handgrip strength is an “inexpensive, reproducible and easy [way] to measure [heart health].” It could also be used to identify patients with a high risk of heart disease, and it can even prevent major life-changing events, like heart attacks. Dr. Petersen noted that the study findings can help experts understand the pathophysiologic process that can isolate a link between “handgrip strength and cardiovascular incidence and mortality.”

He concluded, “[Focused] surveillance and intervention may improve outcomes but further research is necessary to assess whether fitness training can reduce cardiac remodeling and prevent cardiovascular events.”

Heart-healthy foods that can prevent CVD

Eat more of these foods to prevent heart diseases:

  • Berries — Berries are full of phytonutrients and soluble fiber that are good for the heart. Sources include blueberries, cranberries, raspberries, or strawberries that can be added to cereal or yogurt.
  • Dark beans — Beans like kidney or black beans contain B-vitamins, fiber, minerals, and other nutrients.
  • Dark chocolate — Dark chocolate is good for your heart health, but check if it’s at least 70 percent cocoa.
  • Fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids — Sources include herring, mackerel, salmon, trout, and tuna.
  • Healthy nuts — Sources include almonds or walnuts, which can satisfy your hunger and help your heart.
  • Oatmeal — Oatmeal is full of nutrients.
  • Orange, red, and yellow vegetables — Carrots, sweet potatoes, red peppers, and acorn squash are full of carotenoids, fiber, and vitamins.
  • Tomatoes — Both fresh and sun-dried tomatoes have alpha- and beta-carotene, lycopene, and vitamin C.

A 44 Year Old Teenager Shares His Anti-Aging Health Tips



Next Story

Roger Haeske is a health and fitness coach, and after going through some difficult times in his life with his mental and physical health, he ended up finding his very own fountain of youth. It’s basically just positive vibes, which is huge if you’re aware of the emerging science behind the mind-body connection, a diet predominately full of raw fruits and vegetables, and a good amount of physical exercise.

Obviously, there are a lot of people that disagree with this, and when it comes to our health it’s not always one size fits all.

As you can see from the video below, Roger is clearly in tip top shape and really looks healthy and youthful for his age. So, when it comes to his first secret, a vegetarian diet full of predominately raw fruits and vegetables, it makes sense. Dr. Deepak Bhatt, a Harvard Medical School professor and Editor-in-Chief of the Harvard Heart Letter emphasizes,

Basically, when you take a look at caloric restriction studies, many of them show a prolonged lifespan as well as an increased ability to fight chronic disease.

“Calorie restriction (CR) extends life span and retards age-related chronic diseases in a variety of species, including rats, mice, fish, flies, worms, and yeast. The mechanism or mechanisms through which this occurs are unclear.”

The quote above is from a review of literature that is more than 10 years old. The work presented here is now showing some of these mechanisms that were previously unclear.

This brings me into another important point, the power fasting, which, like caloric restriction, turns out to have a tremendous amount of health benefits, and basically has the ability to regenerate your entire immune system. The science behind fasting is truly incredible, and based on my research and experience, it’s definitely a life changer for those who incorporate it into their lifestyle, but, it requires a lot of research.

When it comes to the mind-body connection, the research and proof is abundant, there is enough to warrant the use of these practices inside of hospitals, without a doubt. Why do I say this? Because as far back as 1999, statistics professor Jessica Utts at UC Irvine, published a paper showing that parapsychological experiments have produced much stronger results than those showing a daily dose of aspirin helps to prevent heart attacks. Utts also showed that these results are much stronger than the research behind various drugs like antiplatelets.

The interaction of our thoughts with the physical material world is of huge interest today, garnering increasing attention by academics around the world. Despite a wealth of scientific data showing that one can influence the other, and even more evidence proving that certain emotional states can lead to chronic illness, many who work in mainstream medicine remain entirely ignorant of these concepts.

Perhaps this is why more and more people are gravitating towards alternative forms of medicine. As Garth Cook from Scientific American points out:

“A growing body of scientific research suggests that our mind can play an important role in healing our body — or in staying healthy in the first place. . . There are now several lines of research suggesting that our mental perception of the world constantly informs and guides our immune system in a way that makes us better able to respond to future threats. That was a sort of ‘aha’ moment for me — where the idea of an entwined mind and body suddenly made more scientific sense than an ephemeral consciousness that’s somehow separated from our physical selves.”

I think it’s important to share the information and articles linked above because at the end of the day, it’s really time to question what we are doing on our planet, and have been doing for a long time. It’s hard to propose new ways of doing things to a human race that’s been doing something for so long, but it’s a step that’s always been taken throughout human history. We go through drastic changes and major global paradigm shifts, and one seems to be happening right now with regards to meat eating, from a compassionate, health, and environmental standpoint.

Sesame!10 Amazing Health Benefits Of This Super-Seed

Sesame (Sesamun indicum) is one of the oldest cultivated plants in the world, prized as an oilseed for at least 5,000 years.  While it is beginning to regain favor due to its exceptionally high calcium and magnesium content, few realize it is also one of the most potent medicinal foods still commonly consumed today.

In fact, its history as a medicine goes back 3600 years to Egyptian times where it was listed in the scrolls of the Ebers as a favored medicine.  Also, women in ancient Babylon were believed to use a mixture of honey and sesame seeds (havla) to prolong youth and beauty, and Roman soldiers ate the mixture for strength and energy.

In the past twenty years, a glut of scientific information has poured in demonstrating that sesame seed, and its components, have over three dozen documented therapeutic properties [see sesame research page].  Given these new revelations, it would seem that sesame would be just as at home in a medicine cabinet as it would be a kitchen cupboard.

Here are just 10 evidence-based medicinal properties of this food-medicine:

  1. Diabetes: A study published in 2011 in the Clinical Journal of Nutrition showed that sesame oil improved the effectiveness of the oral antidiabetic drug glibenclamide in type 2 diabetic patients.  Another study published in 2006 in the Journal of Medicinal Foods showed that the substitution of sesame seed oil as the sole edible oil lowers blood pressure and glucose in hypertensive diabetics.
  1. High Blood Pressure:  A study published in 2006 in the Yale Journal of Biological Medicine showed that sesame seed oil has a beneficial effect in hypertensive patients on either diuretics or beta-blockers. Substitution of all dietary oils with sesame oil brought down systolic and dystolic  blood pressure to normal, in addition to decreasing lipid peroxidation (bodily rancidity) and antioxidant status. One of the compounds identified behind sesame seed’s antihypertensive effects are peptides that act as angiotensin I-converting enzyme inhibitors.
  1. Gingivitis/Dental Plaque: Sesame seed oil has been used for oral health for thousands of years in the traditional Indian medical tradition known as Ayurveda in a process known as “oil pulling.” It involves swishing sesame seed oil in the mouth for prolonged durations and has been said to prevent teeth decay, halitosis, bleeding gums, dry throat, and for strengthening the teeth, gums and jaw. Clinical research now confirms that it compares favorably to chemical mouthwash (chlorhexidine) in improving plaque-induced gingivitis and that it is capable of reducing Streptococcus mutans growth associated with oral plaque formation.
  1. Infant Health/Massage Oil:  A study published in the Indian Journal of Medical Research in 2000 showed that massaging infants with sesame oil improved both their growth and post-massage sleep, in comparison to control oils such as mineral oil.
  1. Multiple Sclerosis (MS): In the animal model of MS, also known as experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis, sesame seed oil protects mice from developing the disease by reducing IFN-gamma secretion, a key factor in initiating autoimmune inflammation and injury in the nervous system.  It has also been research for its potential beneficial role in another neurodegenerative condition, Huntington’s disease.
  1. Antibiotic-Induced Kidney Damage: Sesame seed oil protects against gentamicin-induced kidney damage in rats by reducing oxidative damage caused by the antibiotic.
  1. Atherosclerosis: Sesame seed oil prevents the formation of atherosclerotic lesions in mice fed an atherogenic diet. The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory lignan found within sesame seeds known as sesamol has been identified to be partially responsible for its anti-atherogenic properties. In fact, sesamol has been shown to possess over two dozen beneficial pharmacologically active properties, many of which may contribute to improving cardiovascular health.
  1. Depression: The sesame lignin sesamol was shown to exert an antidepressant-like effect in behavioral despair in chronically stressed mice, specifically by modulating oxidative-nitrosative stress and inflammation.
  1. Radiation-Induced DNA Damage: Sesamol has been shown to protect against gamma radiation-induced DNA damage, likely through its antioxidant properties.  It is capable of reducing mortality in radiation treated mice, in part through preventing intestinal and spleen damage. When compared to another powerful antioxidant, melatonin, it was found 20 times more effective as a free radical scavenger.
  1. Cancer: Sesame contains a fat-soluble lignin with phytoestrogenic properties known as sesamin, and which has been studied for inhibiting the proliferation of a wide range of cancer cells, including:
  • Leukemia
  • Multiple Myleoma
  • Colon Cancer
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Breast Cancer
  • Lung Cancer
  • Pancreatic Cancer
  • Lung Cancer

Sesamin’s anticancer effects have been linked to the NF-kappaB signaling.

Sesame deserves to be recognized, along with garlic, honey, turmeric and a select few other substances,  as an easily accessible and affordable food-medicine that, if consumed regularly, could quite possibly save lives.

Gut feelings: New insights on mental health, depression & anxiety

gut feelings

    

In recent years, the study of causes and treatments of depression has uncovered a link to the health of the microbiome within the body’s digestive system. The hypothesis is that the presence or absence of healthy digestive bacteria affects the way the brain functions, and new research by a Florida State University neuroscientist sheds more insight into this.

The findings by research and psychology professor Linda Rinaman point to a very important connection between the gut and the brain, identifying pathways that help to understand why so-called ‘gut feelings’ have a powerful influence on emotions, mood and decision-making.

“We expect these lines of research will help us better understand how gastrointestinal functions contribute to both normal and disordered mental function.” ~ Linda Rinaman

Her research looked at pathways between the gut and the brain in mammals, noting how feelings generated within the gut move into the brain, indicating that some ‘gut-feelings’ are a red flag and thereby may be a fair indicator of healthy mood and mental states.

In the human body, the vagus nerve acts as the pathway between the brain and gut. The nerve is the body’s largest and most extensive nerve, translating and carrying messages between the gastrointestinal tract and the brain. If the gut is operating optimally, the brain is cued to respond more positively. Food and proper supplementation are important factors.

“Scientific and anecdotal evidence suggests a poor diet can cause those protective, cautionary signals to get out of whack, leading to altered mood and behavior. For example, Rinaman said, a high-fat diet can promote a low-grade inflammatory response in the GI tract, changing vagal signals and possibly exacerbating symptoms of anxiety, depression or other disturbed mental states.

Rinaman said the types of bacteria within your gut are shaped by your diet, and those bacteria can affect your emotional and cognitive state.” [Source]

The emotional significance of the vagus nerve is discussed further:

“Research indicates that a healthy vagus nerve is vital in experiencing empathy and fostering social bonding, and it is crucial to our ability to observe, perceive, and make complex decisions. Tests have revealed that people with impaired vagal activity have also been diagnosed with depression, panic disorders, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety, panic disorders, violent mood swings, fibromyalgia, early Alzheimer’s and obesity. Given the state of society today and the vast array of dis-eases associated with unhealthy Vagus Nerves, it doesn’t take a medical doctor to conclude that by healing our collective Vagus Nerves, we can heal a lot of societies woes.

Scientists have discovered that artificial Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS), through electrical impulses via a surgically implanted pacemaker like device, shows promising results in reducing depression, anxieties and even conditions such as epilepsy and obesity. VNS has also shown positive effects in promoting weight-loss as the signals to the brain of ‘fullness’ are more easily transmitted. But what if there were a less intrusive and more natural way to stimulate and heal the Vagus Nerve?” ~ Frank Huguenard


Comment: Another, less invasive way to stimulate the Vagus Nerve is with the regular practice of the Éiriú Eolas Breathing and Stress Reduction program. You can try it for free here.

The important takeaway here is that supporting healthy gut function along with healthy function of the vagus nerve is being demonstrated to be a potentially very potent way of holistically approaching treatment of depression and anxiety.

“Evidence shows that modifying the diet, perhaps by consuming probiotics, can impact your mood and behavioral state. That’s very clear in animal and human studies.” ~ Linda Rinaman
