The Vagus and Cranial Nerves

After my last trip to see Dr. Farias for the oromandibular dystonia workshop he was teaching us how regulation of the vagus nerve through diet (reducing inflammation), stress management, and exercise is crucial to healing and reducing symptoms.

I am a very visual person and needed to find some images and videos that touched on what he was trying to explain. Here are a few that I found that were very helpful.  Before I was diagnosed I had so many symptoms that doctors could not find any cause. My left ear would turn bright red and get hot and it would feel full or clogged. It would also ring sometimes. Looking at this anatomical schema visually helps me put the puzzle together.
