Stimulate the Vagus Nerve for Better Health

Your gut bacteria modify your overall health in many ways. They help build your immune system, influence your weight, and have a part in your risk of certain conditions, like diabetes, obesity, and autoimmune, heart, and colon diseases. They also impact your brain operation, which in turn, determines your mental health and behaviour.

Communication from your gut to your brain is accomplished through the vagus nerve, the immune system, and other neurochemical and microbial messengers.

The Vagus nerve helps control almost all our internal organs. Our heart, lungs, kidneys, adrenals, stomach and intestines (to name just a few) are all controlled by the Vagus nerve. Keeping the Vagus nerve functioning well is key to good health.

Gargling is one simple and powerful technique you can use to improve Vagus nerve function. The muscles we use to gargle water are stimulated by the vagus nerve. 


  • Pour yourself a cup of water.

  • Take about a quarter cup (exact amount isn’t important) and gargle it vigorously for 20-30 seconds.

  • Swallow that water and take another quarter cup and gargle that 20-30 seconds.

  • Keep repeating until all the water in the cup is gone.

  • Repeat the above gargling exercise 3-4 times/day
