Viva la Vagus: The Neural Control of Inflammation It is well known that persistent inflammation is a key driver of many different chronic diseases. Our current scientific understanding of the inflammatory response now includes evidence that acute inflammation is actively controlled by a resolution phase, which uses different mediators as stop signals and checkpoints for pro-inflammatory signals. Moreover, neuroendocrine pathways, including those from the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, sympathetic nervous system and vagus nerve, also actively help to resolve acute inflammation and prevent it from becoming chronic and causing pathology. These recent scientific discoveries support the need to treat all regulatory control hubs of inflammation, including cellular, humoral and neural pathways, in order to prevent chronic inflammation and achieve optimal patient outcomes. This lecture will briefly introduce the latest scientific understanding of acute inflammation to provide context to the valuable role that the nervous system plays in inflammation resolution. Specific focus will be given to the most well described neural control pathway, the cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway, including the various natural clinical interventions that influence it. Heart rate variability also will be introduced as a potentially valuable clinical biomarker. An increased understanding of the critical importance of nervous system control of inflammation helps support the clinical use of additional therapeutic tools, including auricular acupuncture and natural health products, to improve outcomes of patients with chronic inflammatory diseases. It also provides Naturopathic doctors with support for including different mind-body medical techniques that influence pro-inflammatory molecules, such as Tai-Chi, Qigong, yoga and mindfulness meditation, into treatment plans for patients with inflammation.15/12/20201:00pm EST1 hour
