Case Study: Vagus Nerve Entrapment Causing Atrial Fibrillation with Tachycardia
Theory: I have a Vagus Nerve Entrapment Causing Atrial Fibrillation with Tachycardia The Vagus nerve (CN X) is a cranial nerve that is directly linked to the parasympathetic nervous system, playing a role in heart rate, respiration, and digestion. The Vagus nerve helps to down-regulate or slow down heart rate after the body goes through a sympathetic "fight or flight" response - ie the massive adrenaline rush after a scary situation. In our modern world, most of us are in a constant of state stress creating a low-level "fight or flight" response. The sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems are constantly interacting with one another to maintain some semblance of homeostasis or balance.
