How can I stimulate my vagus nerve

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

MTHFR C677T Mutation: Basic Protocol by Dr Lynch on February 24, 2012 in C677T MTHFR Mutations
Have one or two copies of the MTHFR C677T mutation? Don’t know what to do?

After working with 100′s of individuals with this defect, I’ve developed a protocol which may help a significant number of people.
I want to make it absolutely clear that while the MTHFR C677T mutation may be common across a number of individuals, the outcome of supplementing with various nutrients can vary tremendously due to other genetic defects, dietary and lifestyle choices and environmental exposures.

Some of ... ..more

From Dr Ben:
In general, those with C677T mutations have decreased ability to produce methylfolate, increased cardiovascular risk, increased risk of blood clots, increased pain and inflammation and increased chemical sensitivity. Recommendations below support the reduction of these issues by increasing the body’s inherent ability to restore function through nutritional biochemistry.
Limit ingestion of folic acid in fortified foods as you cannot process folic acid well.
Limit or cease taking supplements or drugs with folic acid in them. Talk with your doctor before stopping.
Avoid folic acid blocking drugs such as birth control or Methotrexate.
Avoid drugs which increase ... ..more

Can you tell me about coffee enemas ?

  4 years, 2 months ago

Coffee enemas help eliminate pollutants and stimulate 500-700 times the amount of glutathione normally made by the #liver . #Glutathione is your body’s major #antioxidant and #immune booster and it is critical in #cancer therapy and prevention as well as CFS/MCS recovery. It also removes sulfide producing toxins and #ammonia from the #gut . Nevertheless, it is only mandated for cancer treatment. #Detox

The following are some helpful tips:
• For those with #arthritis or mobility issues, using camping or an army cot is essential for quick enema release (without messy accidents)

• Chamomile tea is beneficial for reducing #bowel spasms and ... ..more

1) Biopterin/Neopterin: For those with A1298C mutations, #BH4 (also known as tetrahydrobiopterin) levels are typically quite low. This test provides insight to how low these levels are and why. If neopterin levels are high, then I am considering the possibility of a lingering infection, inflammation or chronic immune response that is preventing #biopterin from being formed. Thus, this test provides information not only potentially low biopterin levels but also why they may be low.

If a doctor simply prescribes BH4 without understanding the need to address the inflammation and chronic infections, it is band-aide treatment over a gaping wound ... ..more

Understandably, human beings adapt much more readily to positive reinforcement, avoiding the negative experiences. While there are many approaches to #detox , experience has shown that it takes commitment on par with taking a seminar or, when really ill, getting through a longer flu or hospitalization. It takes an extensive amount of time, energy, and dedication, which is often extremely difficult for those who work full-time and/or have a difficult time slowing down. Regardless of the strategy, if you relegate the process to moments of “when I get time,” you cannot be successful. Many make the mistake of trying to ... ..more
