Parkinson’s and the Vagus Nerve
This article is about how ” Parkinson’s disease (PD) may be caused by an enteric neurotropic pathogen entering the brain through the vagal nerve, a process that may take over 20 years. ” Translated to plain English “enteric neurotropic pathogen” means a “gut” “nerve loving” “microorganism (virus, bacteria, etc)” In the case of this study, it’s a virus that travels up the vagus nerve to the brain and affects the brain producing Parkinson’s.
What rings my bells is that the Vagus Nerve is involved.
The vagus nerve comes in pairs. They both communicate with the vital organs. However the vagus nerve that branches to the left side of the body more strongly services the organs below the diaphragm: stomach, liver, spleen, pancreas, kidney, intestines. The right branch more directly services the organs above the diaphragm: the lung, heart, pharynx.
And Bowen Therapy has an excellent procedure that addresses vagus nerve function directly. It affects just about all things in the chest and gut–pain and discomfort to rhythms stabilization, pressure levels, stones and spasms, infections, depression and hormone balances and behavioral issues. just about everything and the kitchen sink. No, it don’t cure these issues. But Bowen Vagus procedure is very complimentary to any treatment plan–working the fascia to release any strains on the vagus nerve, freeing them to function to their fullest potential.
