People have looked over the years for remedies against mind fatigue and body illness, but the only things they came up with were sport activities and doctors. All these until now, when they discovered the benefits of yoga. The good thing in practicing yoga is that it takes care of both our mind and body, helping us to deal with health problems without medicines.
The essential thing you first learn when you come in contact with this kind of practice is that breathing is very important for our well being. Beside the fact that it helps our central nervous system to calm down, it also improves the activity of our respiratory track, and thus our moth, nose and lungs. Through the breathing process we get to focus better and also to have a certain control on our body. The oxygen is absorbed better, activating more the blood circulation and thus allowing our brain to be more stimulated.
The stretching is as nearly as important as breathing when it comes to yoga practices. A good stretch, executed perfectly, increases the flexibility our body has. It also has a healing process in arthritis, as it makes the back, shoulder and knee pains disappear. Also the tension that we sometimes feel in different areas is cast away, leaving behind a more elastic body.
For our health yoga does wonders. No matter of the conditions and affections we may have, it helps us improve our well being. It cures us from insomnia and asthma, it helps us lose weight and also increase the cholesterol level and also strengthens our heart. If we suffer from diabetes, the good news is that, by practicing yoga, we lower the quantity of sugar from our blood.
Now it s possible to take care of the aging process not only through medical interventions, but also through yoga practices. Yoga gives us the chance to get rid of the toxins from our body and also of the stress hormone which has an important part in aging. Thus, our body becomes more tough and firm and our skin nourishes again. The resting moments have their quality improved due to the discharge of stress. Anxiety, depression and obsessive- compulsion disorders are long forgotten.
