“Rest-and-Digest” via the Vagus Nerve
The vagus nerve is the super highway nerve that connects the small intestine, stomach, liver, kidneys, lung, heart and other vital organs directly to the brain. Your body is a whole organism that works together as one, so triggering the vagus nerve in one area will send signals to other organs as well—especially the brain.
The belly button has the thinnest layer of muscle between the inner vagus nerve and outside contact compared to other areas that are linked to this important highway of nerves. This means that the belly button is the most effective place to cause rippling effects on the vagus nerve. In other words, the belly button is the most accessible place to communicate directly with the brain.
The vagus nerve under the belly button activates the parasympathetic “rest-and-digest” nervous system. Turning on the parasympathetic nervous system produces calming effects on the body, which makes muscles relax, and normalizes hyperactivity in the emotional layer of the brain.
Many scientists agree that most modern-day diseases are caused by stress to some degree. There are many factors in our lives that cause our bodies to overproduce stress hormones such as in the office with coworkers, at home with children, or in the car stuck in traffic with a road full of frustrating drivers.
Belly Button Healing, by stimulating the vagus nerve under the belly button, strengthens a “mental brake” we have in the area of our brain behind the forehead that cools down the emotional brain. This gives us more emotional self-control and turns down the mental effects of stress such as overthinking. Hyperactivity of this brake is what gives us headaches and makes us feel “hot headed” when we’re too stressed out!
Happy Gut = Happy Brain = Happy Life
Gut Microbes in Mood Regulation
Scientists are now finding more convincing evidence that the microbes in the gut determine our mental well-being and mood by communicating directly with the vagus nerve. Microbes in the gut secrete a load of chemicals that are not just for digestion.
It might come as a surprise to most that a staggering 95% of the body’s serotonin (happiness hormone) is produced by the gut while only a mere 5% is produced by the central nervous system. Additionally, 50% of the body’s dopamine (pleasure and reward hormone) is produced by the gut as well. These chemicals are then used by the neurons in the gut to communicate and regulate mood. A balance of more healthy microbes leads to a healthier mental state, while the opposite leads to anxiety, depression, and stress.
One immediate effect of Belly Button Healing is heat forming in the abdomen. Good bacteria in the gut flourish only when the gut is warm. Belly Button Healing naturally creates heat through a repeated pumping motion, which provides the perfect environment for the good bacteria to flourish and contribute to mood regulation while overshadowing the bad bacteria that grow.
The Belly Button Healing wand was developed to stimulate the belly button to relieve stress in a simple and easy-to-follow way. The design allows you to stimulate the vagus nerve through the belly button to communicate directly with the brain without much effort or strain at all.
