  1. I am very interested in the vagus nerve and need to ask this question:
    I have psychogenic tremor though chronic stress, shock and disbelieve at how large organisations dealt with me. I was so angry. I went to bed and woke up with my hands shaking. This has now gone to my stomach and legs.
    Is to do with the vagus nerve? I feel it is and need to know what I can do about this.

  2. This lecture brought tears to my eyes. Dr. Catherine emanates such peace and gentleness. This was an awesome lecture indeed. I can’t wait for my piece of the jigsaw to fit properly! Thank you Matt and Sarah for your dedication and hard work.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing. I loved it and I'm starting to follow Dr. Catherine Clinton to learn more about this connection.
    When you talked about heart transplant I just remembered about the book Biology of Belief, from Dr. Bruce Lipton. He explains very well about this. Everything is connected. We are connected. We are not part of the whole. We are the whole. Thank you Goodness Lover for sharing so much love in all the information you bring to us. Happy holidays to everyone.
