How Stress Impacts Immune Function

Whether you’re trying to heal from a chronic illness or fight an acute infection, you cannot properly heal when your nervous system is out of whack.

Anecdotal evidence and published scientific studies show that experiencing prolonged stress negatively impacts the immunological state and that prolonged elevated psychological stress is associated with increased risk of infection by respiratory viruses.

Understand how stress impacts your immunity when you join the Mind, Body & the Vagus Nerve Connection Summit!

Because of the demands of modern life and the prevalence of unresolved emotional trauma and lack of ability to handle stress effectively, many people can activate their sympathetic (fight-or-flight) response very readily, but they often struggle to switch it off because of low vagal tone.

This limits the ability to activate the rest-digest-detoxify-heal part of the nervous system and over time, this leads to chronic inflammation and poor gut function and consequently, can result in pretty much any chronic disease, including autoimmunity and cancer.

Mind, Body & the Vagus Nerve Connection Summit will discuss:

  • Functions of the vagus nerve
  • The vagus nerve’s role in immunity
  • Connection between healthy vagus function & a healthy gut & biome
  • Links between infections, mitochondrial health & vagus function
  • Techniques to boost your vagus nerve function
  • And so much more!

Learn how you can balance your nervous system when you join the Mind, Body & the Vagus Nerve Connection Summit!

Eva Detko, PhD, MSc, mIAHT, has gathered the right experts, information and protocols to help you understand the importance of toning and strengthening your vagus nerve function for optimal health.

Every day she helps her clients overcome complex health issues by helping them restore their autonomic nervous system balance, which is critical to healing from any chronic condition.

She’s here to help you by sharing that wisdom.
