The connection between your brain and your gut cannot be overlooked when addressing your digestive symptoms. The vagus nerve must be firing down into your gut for optimal gut motility. Symptoms of bowel irregularity, brain fog, fatigue, and depression may have everything to do with this very important gut-brain connection. If these symptoms go unmanaged, the integrity of this axis will most likely continue to decline leading to more advanced stages of leaky gut and autoimmunity.

Gargle

Gargling with water stimulates the vagus nerve which helps bring blood flow to the gut. We suggest gargling forcefully with water several times a day. If you’re doing it right you may even start to have tears come to your eyes. This is because it also stimulates an area of the brain right next to the vagus nerve called the the superior salivatory nucleus, which causes you to tear. You may need to start with a small amount of water and gargle for a short period of time but slowly building up the duration and intensity will exercise those neurons and strengthen them.

Induce Your Gag Reflex

Using disposable tongue depressors, press on the the back of your tongue just enough to induce your gag reflex. Be careful not to go too far into the back of the throat to cause injury. Stimulating the gag reflex may also cause you to tear up which is once again a sign that you have stimulated your vagus nerve.

Try a Coffee Enema

Most people who have heard of coffee enemas will know that they are used for detoxification.  I suggest using a strong organic coffee enema daily.  The caffeine in the coffee will stimulate something called the gastrointestinal nicotinic cholinergic receptors which encourage gut motility.  If you are using a strong enough concentration of caffeine you should get the urge to have a bowel movement.  The key is to suppress your urge to eliminate for as long as possible.

Your endurance and compliance with these tasks is what helps you regain your gut motility and your gut-brain communication system.
