Vagus Nerve Healing

Vagus Nerve Healing

Vagus Nerve Healing

We interviewed Stanley Rosenberg about vagus nerve healing. The vagus nerve, also known as cranial nerve ten (denoted by the Roman numeral X), is the longest nerve in the body, running from the brain stem through the eyes, heart, lungs, and digestive tract. Inhibition of the vagus nerve is known as “fight or flight”, a state in which the sympathetic nervous system is activated. Because the vagus nerve connects so many different organs and symptoms, its inhibition can lead to commonly known symptoms of anxiety and/or fear such as: Pupil dilation Increased heart rate Shallow breathing Digestion inhibition Secretion of stress hormones such as epinephrine and norepinephrine Increased blood glucose Cranial-nerve dysfunction, including cranial nerve X (the vagus nerve), can contribute to the symptoms of individuals with: Autism ADD/ADHD Sensory Processing Disorder Developmental delays Learning disabilities Speech delays Anxiety Depression Trauma Migraines Asthma Poor digestion Irritability Difficulty sleeping Poor social engagement Withdrawal Stanley discussed how nervous system dysfunction can lead…

Cranial Neurosequencing Technique

Cranial Neurosequencing Technique

Cranial Neurosequencing Technique

We interviewed Lois Laynee about the cranial neurosequencing technique that she created. Every dysfunction starts with an interruption or alteration within cranial-nerve connections, which can lead to retained reflexes in a child. These retained reflexes mean that movement sequences that are programmed into a baby’s development in utero and during the first year or so of life are not inhibited; thus, they are retained. Children with retained reflexes are more likely to have developmental delays in gross-motor skills and fine-motor skills, which can lead to a host of other problems later on such as neurodevelopmental disorders, speech delays, social delays, emotional delays and problems with academic performance. Cranial-nerve dysfunction can contribute to the symptoms of individuals with: Autism ADD/ADHD Sensory Processing Disorder Developmental delays Learning disabilities Speech delays Anxiety Depression Trauma Migraines Asthma Poor digestion Irritability Difficulty sleeping Poor social engagement Withdrawal Lois discussed how gentle movement patterns of development that are part of the cranial neurosequencing technique can activate…
