functional medicine to transform his own health. He is the founder of ‘Health Upgraded’ an online functional health consulting clinic, supporting optimal health by elevating the awareness and function of the Vagus nerve.


Optimal function of the Vagus nerve is imperative in the control of inflammation throughout the body and dysfunction is associated with numerous chronic health conditions. Heart Rate Variability and Cardiac Vagal Tone are great ways to measure Vagus Nerve function with our
patients in practice today.

In this session, Dr. Habib will review the Autonomic Nervous System, the physiology of the cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway, the mechanisms by which dysautonomia leads to uncontrolled inflammatory processes, and the diagnosis of chronic health conditions
particularly in the CNS and gastrointestinal tract.

  • Review Vagus Nerve and Cholinergic Anti-Inflammatory Pathway function
  • Understand the function of Tissue Resident Macrophages of the innate immune system and their interaction with the Vagus nerve
  • Review the latest research on Vagus Nerve Stimulation in various chronic conditions and future directions
