Clinical Corner: Gut-Brain Axis

Gut-Brain Axis

Digestive System Control: 

The vagus nerve is heavily involved in the regulation of the digestive system. It stimulates the smooth muscles of the gastrointestinal tract, facilitating peristalsis (the rhythmic contraction of muscles that moves food along the digestive tract). The vagus nerve also controls gastric secretions, helping with digestion.

Role in the Gut-Brain Axis: 

The vagus nerve is involved in the communication between the gut and the brain, known as the gut-brain axis. It plays a role in transmitting information about the gut’s state to the brain and vice versa.

Sore Throat Support with Essential Oils

A sore throat, known as pharyngitis, is typically characterized by pain, irritation, or scratchiness in the throat. It may also be accompanied by symptoms such as difficulty swallowing, hoarseness, and swollen glands.


Sore throats can be caused by various factors, including viral infections (such as the common cold or flu), bacterial infections (like strep throat), teeth and gum issues, environmental factors (e.g., dry air, smoke, or pollutants), allergies, issues with the sternocleidomastoid, or overuse of the vocal cords.


Sore throats often occur when the mucous membranes in the throat become inflamed due to irritation, trigger points, or infection. This inflammation can lead to discomfort and pain. Viral infections are the most common cause and tend to resolve on their own within a few days, while bacterial infections may require antibiotic treatment.


Common symptoms of a sore throat include a scratchy or dry throat, pain or discomfort when swallowing, swollen tonsils, redness or irritation in the throat, and in some cases, fever.
