"Resetting" the "Vagus" Nerve

So yesterday we spoke about how to help correct the "vagus" nerve's function . . .

And other good sources would be . . . lean red meat, poultry, some nuts, whole grains and crab and lobster.

Okay . . . so how do we figure out if we have a "vagus" nerve problem???

Well . . . there's a test you can do yourself . . .

You see . . . "vagal tone" is measured by "tracking" the body's heart-rate alongside its breathing rate. Your heart-rate speeds up a little when you inhale . . . and slows down a little when you exhale.

So the bigger the difference between the inhalation heart-rate . . . and the exhalation heart-rate . . . the "higher" the "vagal tone". Which as we know . . . is a good thing!

So take your first two fingers and place them on the inside of your wrist . . . do you feel your
