hi guys. Quick test for you. Look up into the roof of your mouth in a mirror. Say aahhh 2 or 4 times and look at the uvula - the little ball of skin that drops down from the roof. Does it deviate to one side, or rise symmetrically on both sides?

I looked but I can't tell if my uvula is set left, or it it's central but my head is clocked to the right.

okay - if possible, ask someone else to check for you. If it does deviate to the left, clinical confirmation that right ventral vagus nerve is dysfunctional. I will tell you about the link here with Psoriasis.

I am curious, Chris.

Me too. Very curious.

chris @cd

lets conduct a little study on how many people with P have deviated uvulas!! will then explain the clinical significance.


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

OK. LOL!! So, my dogs think I'm crazy, but mine doesnt deviate to one side. It rise symmetrically on both sides.


chris
chris @cd

ok, good. other checks to come!!


James
James @ferns

Mine is definately to the left.

chris @cd

ok - one leftie. good. Keep testing and let me know. thx

The suspense is killing me. Should we wake the other Flaymers???? OK but Chris, as long as you dont tell me I'm dying then all is good ;)

I am impatiently waiting.
Cant help you with the test.
I dont have a uvula, they accidentally cut it of while removing my tonsils. Its not a problem, just cant check this one.


chris
chris @cd

okay Millionways - check the muscles in roof of mouth either side of where uvula would have been. do they rise evenly, or one more than the other, or not at all??

Hello Chris, been a long while,Think mine looks like it rises symmetrically on the both sides i think?looks that way? :)

okay - here we go. as mammals, we descend from reptiles. Reptiles have a fight or flight vagus nerve. As we evolved from cold blooded reptiles to warm blooded mammals we got a second vagus from a separate part of the brain. The mammal nerve, or ventral vagus, helps control heart and lungs along with the old reptilian nerve - they work together. Reptile, or dorsal vagus, controls digestive organs aswell. If mammal nerve is dominant as it should be, we have balanced heart and lung function, healthy digestive system and we are "wired" in self healing mode. If mammal nerve is dysfunctional - uvula test confirms this (it should lift symmetrically) then several things happen. Lungs shut down, and we get eratic heart function. Digestive system begins to shutdown as body goes into reptilian mode. Why? because reptiles are cold blooded and dont move a lot, so body goes into "conservation" mode. Internally, body becomes stressed, and with reduced oxygen circulation to cells and compromised digestive system, can easily see how it could contribute to psoriasis and other increased inflammatory markers. Other symptoms of ventral vagus dysfunction may include fatigue, IBS, hiatus hernia ( because top third of esophagus is controlled by mammal nerve ) high inflammatory markers in blood, tight shoulder muscles, headaches/migraines from base of skull and above eyes, breathing issues,COPD, tightness in the chest and heart imbalances. I have found that hiatus is often impacted even if uvula lifts symmetrically. Hiatus is where esophagus passes thru hole in muscle that separates heart and lungs from abdomen. 2 vagus nerves follow esophagus thru hiatus, and often get pinched if hiatus is tight - locks us in fight or flight! wonder if this body engineering approach resonates with anyone???

hi John - good to catch up with you again bud.

Hi Chris, Good you are back, I remember going all through this with you last year regarding the vagus nerve, flight or fight mode :), well you know i made these big diet/lifestyle changes last year with your help and i have helped many others, i was a busy bee here last year , I still stay by lifestyle changes from day to day, It has been a part of my life for a long time now,It wasnt easy i know but can be done if one wants to make that step /change, though it is a choice a choice for everyone , Thank you :)


Millionways
Millionways @millionways

Thanks. Its symmetricaly I think.

Mine is symmetrical as far as I can see. 🤔

Sorry Chris you've lost me.

Chris, this is so interesting thank you. So, what will happen if we do not have a uvula? Can't something be cancelled out? I mean, even if it lift semetrically or not, its still a problem. We need to get rid of the hiatus. Lol. Special Treatment for this?

Ok - just back from working with guys who have PTSD in Canada. Went to test a mechanical theory with great success. Heading back again in few weeks. Uvula is just the diagnostic indicator that the two muscles above, which are linked to ventral vagus, are working. If no uvula, muscles above should still life.
very intuitive Michelle - yes! all the guys i treated had hiatus distortion that was pinching one or both of the 2 vagus nerves that pass with esophagus through hiatus into lower abdomen. The result of this is tightening of muscles in chest and neck/shoulders to protect nerves, and we then get a vicious mechanical cycle that cannot be released without manual intervention. Result - locked in fight or flight and internal stress and inflammation. Find where ribs meet in centre of chest. drop about an inch, and inch to the left - poke around there. Tender??


Susan
Susan @susan191085

Ok, mine leans left whether it’s lifted or not. Weird!

okay - self help technique to aid balance of the central nervous system even if your uvula does not deviate. interlace fingers and place both hands behind head on bony part of the skull. without moving your head, gently roll the eyes as far right as you can without straining. After 30/60 seconds you should feel one of two indicators to confirm ventral vagus has released. Either a sigh or a swallow. Once achieved, repeat on left. This will help balance gut, lung and heart function - should also improve neck rotation. Take pressure off of body internally, and reduce inflammatory markers. enjoy!

Mine goes towards the right, but if looking at it it goes left.
