Did you know that problems with your vagal tone can cause all sorts of tummy troubles? Yep, it’s true! From bloating to tummy aches, there’s a whole range of gastrointestinal issues that can pop up when your vagal tone gets out of whack.

For example, if your vagal function isn’t working quite right, you might end up with bloating and sluggish digestion. On the flip side, if your vagal activity is too high, you could find yourself running to the bathroom more often than usual.

And let’s not forget about how vagal dysfunction can mess with your gut’s immune system, leading to inflammation and an imbalance of bacteria.

So, it’s important to keep that vagal tone in check for a happy and healthy gut. How? Try doing more things that calm you and help to create more happiness in your life. Whether that’s spending more time in nature, with your furry baby, friends, family, reading a book, taking a nap, or having some quiet time to yourself.
