Mind-Body Therapies: Vagus Nerve Regulation and Trauma Recovery
In the years since the Adverse Childhood Experiences study (Felitti, 1998) research has concluded that there is undeniable connection between childhood trauma and our health. Importantly, complementary and alternative medicine and mind-body therapies can help us to calm down anxiety, reduce chronic illness symptoms, support digestion, and improve our sleep. Mind-body therapies such as mindfulness, yoga, relaxation, breath practices, support the vagus nerve.
