Easy to Understand for Average Person

I researched the Vagus Nerve prior to purchasing this audiobook. I was looking for a complete guide for the average person looking to optimize their health. This is the book! It is thorough but written in easy to understand language and with simple examples. Breathing through with the diaphragm and nose has been the best thing I have learnt. I am retraining my body after many unclear health issues and challenges over the last 10 years. I am going through it again to see what else I missed or need to implement. Well done!

Lacking Depth but good introductory info

May be I had a wrong expectation about this book. Book sprinkles good amount of information about Vagus Nerve and how is connected with various functioning of body organs and systems. But I felt that the book lacked depth and some amount a sticking story. If someone had read book on nutrition, diet, mindfulness, sleep - you can skip this book and follow what is said in rest of the book. Because you will only learn the vagus nerve is connected to all these things. Any dysfunction or impairment leads to poor function of vagus nerve which subsequently affects other systems of the body one by one. Active methods to activate Vagus nerve Slow Deep Diaphragmatic Breathing, Getting great sleep, Love your space , 3. Sleep on your side for sleep, cold exposure, hum or chant mantras, gargling, yoga, mindfulness, meditation, laughter, social interaction, listening to music, smart dietary choices, intermittent fasting, exercises, resistance training, aerobic exercise, sunlight exposure,avoidance of coffee, supplementation, pro-biotics, omega-3 fatty acids, etc are some of suggestions in this book. Passive methods to activate Vagus nerve : Auricular acupuncture, massage therapy and reflexology, Visceral manipulation, chiropractic care So, if you read the above 2-3 paragraphs, that will be the takeaway for you. I felt that I paid more for this audible book despite the member price

Elton John? & Great book

When he was talking about the effects of listening to Mozart, the bit about Mozart seemed to conclude and then the words “Elton John” were spoken as it that was the title of a new section. After that, the book continued without any further information or mention of Elton John. I loved this book and read it because I have IBS-C. My colon doesn’t move! After 5 minutes breathing for the last 4 nights, my colon has done its job 4 days in a row (inconceivable!!!) I will do more exercises but I definitely think this is a fruitful path for me. Thank you for writing this book!

Such a Great Discovery I am Ready to Be Healed!

Such great insight on what the vague nerve is responsible and how it affects all parts of our body . This is an awesome listen and the narrator was very articulate and has such a refreshing voice. I am listening again!

"Put the Pieces Together for Me"

This book helped synthesize a bigger picture for me as to why things like cryo/cold-therapy, breathing exercises, music, laughter, yoga/Pilates, etc are said to be important for improving HRV and thus long term health, but I didn't understand how or why about the whole Sympathetic/Para-sympathetic nervous system works...the author does that in Ch.15.

Eye Opening

Great book with a ton of valuable information. I was totally clueless about the Vagus Nerve prior to reading this book. It is a must read.

Complete, relevant, organized info

Exactly what it promises to be. Not sure yet but hoping there’s a PDF download of lists - written form of the suggested exercises, or else I’ll have to go way back and take notes. But, good book.

Chapter on how to heal very thorough

The skills list was exactly what I wanted given my previous studies on vagus nerve. This very important for trauma work with clients in mental health services.

Activate Your Vagus Nerve

Nice read. I'll read this again and take notes in certain chapters. I liked the discussion on biochem.
