Did you know that your stamina, gut health, blood sugar levels, heart rate variability, inflammation, emotional well-being, and even your ability to create lasting positive social connections, are all directly influenced by your vagus nerve?
The Vagus Nerve
The vagus nerve is the longest nerve in the body. It is either one of two cranial nerves which extend from the brain stem all the way to the intestines. It connects the brain to many important organs including the heart, lungs, stomach, intestines, liver, and gallbladder. It’s involved in controlling the immune, cardiovascular, respiratory, and endocrine systems.
Are You Hyper-Tensed or Just Thirsty?

All life as we know it is entirely dependent upon water to survive. The human body is anywhere from 55 to 78 percent water (depending on body size, age and sex). Water is everywhere within us - from our cells, to our blood, to every single one of our organs and tissues, including the brain, the lungs and all our muscles. In fact, 99 percent of the molecules in the body are… yes, you guessed right… water!
Most people do not look at water as a nutrient but it actually is, the most important one. We can survive for a month or so without food, but only a few short days without water. Next to the air we breathe water is the most important element. Every life-giving and healing process that happens inside our body happens with water.
