Talking about the nerve conduction brings us back to that infamous Vagus nerve, cranial nerve X. Remember the Vagus nerve decreases the SNS (Sympathetic Nervous System which promotes the fight or flight response), and increases rest and digest – PNS – Parasympathetic Nervous System. If the Vagus nerve is compressed due to tightness, inflexibility and restricted fascia, unfortunately the internal organs are unable to perform optimally. The Vagus nerve will now not be able to reduce feelings of peace and calmness through slowing the brain, heart rate, lungs, and digestive system.
Hydration and flexibility are essential!
** Remember week 1– hydration and water – drinking an adequate amount of water to ensure there is hydration in all cells of the body, including the brain, muscles, and fascia too!
**Remember week 2 – deep breathing – expanding the belly when you breathe – thinking about inflating a balloon in your belly; massaging the internal organs including the bowels.
