Yoga Working Towards Prevention Of Disease
Yes! Even doctors love yoga because they have experienced and learned first hand that yoga can help prevent the following diseases.
It is proven that strength training makes the bones strong, which reduces the chances of osteoporosis. Yoga also lowers the levels of cortisol in the body, which helps to retain calcium in the bones.
With lowered weight, stress, and blood pressure, the cardiovascular health is improved. This greatly reduces the risk of heart diseases.
Yoga is said to elevate the gamma-amino butyric acid (GABA) levels in the brain. Studies say that low levels of GABA are responsible for the onset of Alzheimer’s. Meditation also works on the brain health, thus reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s.
Apart from the fact that yoga reduces the levels of glucose in the blood, it encourages stress reduction and physical exercise. This builds potential for insulin production in the pancreas.
