Publisher's Summary

This book, The Polyvagal Nerve, is a practical guide to understanding the vagus nerve as the most crucial nerve in our body. It also plays a crucial role in determining our emotional and psychological states of mind. Many common mental and physical symptoms, from anxiety and depression to migraines and back pain, indicate that the vagus nerve is not functioning correctly. 

The book shows the simple ways in which one can regulate the vagus nerve to trigger deep relaxation, improve sleep, and recover from injury and trauma through a series of quick self-help exercises. Also, Rosenberg's findings and methods offer a new hope by exploring the correlation between a well regulated vagus nerve and social functioning, that by enhancing social behavior, some of the symptoms in many autism spectrum disorders can be alleviated. Useful for psychotherapists, physicians, body staff, and nurses, as well as to those with chronic stress and depression symptoms, this book shows how to improve the independent functioning of the body and its innate ability to heal. 

In this book, you will learn:

  • What the vagus nerve is
  • Vagus nerve tone
  • Vagus nerve damage and causes
  • The polyvagal theory
  • What happen when the vagus nerve stops working
  • Vagus nerve stimulations and benefits
  • Many more....

I have seen some amazing hearing's on polyvagal.

Our heart rate increases to prepare us for fight or flight. Then if the threat is too large or we can’t escape the system of last resort, the dorsal vegal takes over.

Intriguing theory!

Truly interested dialog that truly opened my eyes to how critical human to human engagement is in how our apprehensive framework works. Leilani talks with a tone of clear specialist on the subject and the exchange and redundancy truly offer assistance bring domestic the hypothesis and make it clearer for us less "scientific" listeners to process. A really charming hypothesis with a lot of potential to mend and way better get it yourself within the domain of your apprehensive framework.

Absolutely astounding undeniable fact.

Why there are not more audiobooks like this on the market bewilders me. I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook and plan to hear it again. I can see some areas than can be intertwined with other disciplines particularly in early development and health.
