How can I stimulate my vagus nerve

  2 years, 6 months ago

SOURCE: http://selfhacked.com/2015/...


Introduction to The Vagus Nerve

In people with fatigue, food sensitivities, anxiety and gut problems, brain fog and depersonalization, the vagus nerve is almost always at play. These people have lower vagal tone, which means a lower ability of the vagus nerve to activate.

The only question is what aspect of the vagus nerve is malfunctioning and how much the vagus nerve is a problem vs. other aspects of your biology.

The vagus nerve is part of the parasympathetic nervous system, referred to as the rest and digest system. It’s not the only nerve ... ..more

1) Get a Standard Health Report. Go to https://livewello.com/snps and upload your raw data gene results file.

Since a software application doesn't know your unique symptoms, your other functional lab levels and a host of your other important health variables, it would be unsafe for it to dispense a safe treatment plan without this information. What you'll need next is ... ..more

This Livewello feature helps you find and generate your own results on Genes that Genome wide Research Studies have associated to certain Health Conditions based on research studies.

1) Go to: https://livewello.com/gwas and enter the name of your health condition. If research has been done on it, the SNPs/Genes and research studies associated with that health condition will pull up.

2) Once it does, click "copy to sandbox" and

3) Click build SNP Template to view your own report.

You probably have done your Gene Test for a variety of reasons that may not have included your health. Did you know that your Gene results contain information about mutations that research has associated with certain health issues? This information can include your potential risk for certain health conditions. Of course, we always advise that any information our software provides for you is discussed with your Doctor but it is important to maximize the information in your Gene results.

Why would you need to run a Genetics test?
https://docs.google.com/doc...

LiveWello is unique because it gives you much more than just a Gene report: The Livewello Gene App will give you Gene reports for 600,000 SNPs and conveniently attaches 12 resources for learning to each Gene. The App also offers free updates that reflect your results when 23andMe adds more SNPs to your raw data. The reason for this feature, is that we believe that people should have information for all the Genes in their Raw Data not just some of them. That way, you and your Heallthcare Practitioner can have the benefit of all this information when creating your treatment plan. Basically, as long as a SNP is in your Raw Data with rsID and Minor Allele, the App will generate your Gene Report for it.
So, how does the Livewello App work ?
1) Download your Raw Data from 23andMe, Ancestry.com or FTDNA etc. Save it to your desktop.
2) Go to the home page at: https://livewello.com/genetics
On that page, you can learn more about our genetics tools. Then, click the "Get Started" button to upload your raw data and pay the 1-time fee of 19:95. The raw data file you upload into the App should not be altered in any way. i.e. Do not edit the file name, file format or contents.
3) Livewello currently gives you unlimited Health reports for about 600,000 SNPs in your Raw Data. Once you’re done with uploading your raw data, you can start generating your Health Reports with these free tools:
a) The Gene Library is searchable and has thousands of FREE Health Reports you will find helpful and can download: https://livewello.com/snps/...
It is designed to give your health reports on Genes that Research Studies have associated with your health issues and Diagnosis. Share your reports with your Doctor. These Gene Reports could be good indicators that your Doctor may need to order further lab/diagnostic testing. As a Livewello Gene App user, you can install as many Gene Reports as you'd like. There is no limit!

b) The GWAS Health Conditions Tool
If you don’t see Gene Reports about your health issues in the Gene Library, use this tool:
It will give you health reports on Genes that Research Studies have associated with your health issues and Diagnosis: https://livewello.com/gwas

DIRECTIONS FOR THE GWAS Health Conditions FEATURE
To use the GWAS Health Conditions Tool go to https://livewello.com/gwas
i. Simply enter the health condition's name to see if any Genome-wide studies have been done on that condition. If studies exist, as you type, results will come up. Click on the result that matches your search.
ii. Click on "copy to SNP sandbox" and
iii. Click "build template" and "view report" to generate a report for yourself.
c) The SNP Sandbox Tool Use it to create customized Gene Reports based on any Gene or SNP names you choose to have in it. How-To Video: http://vimeo.com/103512972

A Standard Gene Report with information looks like this:  https://livewello.com/snps/... This sample contains some useful info worth sharing with your Doctor.

1) When your Gene report is created, click the Gene itself (or the "i" icon in a Template). Livewello will link 12 Learning Resources directly to each of the Genes in your report. They are: Medline, GHR, Google Scholar, dbSNP, Ensembl, Wiki Genes, SNPedia Wiki Genes, Malacards and PubMed. If the info is not readily available, re-enter your gene name or health condition into that resource's search box to check if any further information is ... ..more

What does this process look like when it’s broken? After reading the following, you will be able to envision the implications of defects or mutations. The following is an example of the health problems that might occur.
1. Poor nerve function leads to muscle twitching, numbness, and weakness yet misfires can cause seizures, fatigue, memory loss, word groping, clumsiness (with falls & injuries), and visual or hearing loss in those with MS, CFS/ME, or Autism Spectrum Disorders.

2. Depending on the neuro-talker, imbalances often lead to a variety of disorders including: depression, anxiety, panic attacks, irritability, mood swings, OCD ... ..more

What is Methylation?

  3 years, 10 months ago

Methylation
The methylation pathway can be likened to the body’s chief housekeeping and maintenance systems. It is responsible for many of the most complex and vital undertakings throughout the body, occurring each time the body takes one substance and turns it into another. This chemical exchange occurs between enzymes, amino acids, proteins, and other molecules in order to maintain cell function. Methylation regulates gene expression, allowing beneficial genes to function while keeping less desirable genes at bay. It also provides the backbone for the immune system, DNA, RNA, cellular repair, detoxification, hormone regulation, and communication between the cells and ... ..more
