The vagus nerve is the largest nerve in the human body. It runs from your brain stem all the way to your gut. It influences everything in that large portion of your body. This nerve is a master nerve because it influences so much.
The Vagus Nerve Influences:
- Heart Rate
- Respiratory Rate
- Reflex reactions (coughing, sneezing, etc.)
- Your voice (tone/power/strength)
- Blood Pressure
- Stomach Acid
- Sympathetic & Parasympathetic Nervous System
- + More!

There are many ways to do what’s called “Vagal toning” for the vagus nerve, which I share in this video:
