1 of 5
With pranayama (breathing techniques) and natural yoga forms, we learn to release the accumulated emotional trauma in our bodies, creating new space for healing and a greater understanding of our connections with all living beings. Take seven deep breaths, with breath retention, when you are tired, or your mind is overactive. It helps to focus on your thoughts and helps in de-addiction.
How can Ayurveda help in controlling addiction?
2 of 5
Addiction is a social and mental problem requiring the holistic approach of Ayurveda to combine herbal medicine, exercises, and meditation. The Ayurvedic system has been practiced and refined for thousands of years and can be implemented into any existing treatment program. Stress can lead to addictive behaviors and a build-up of ama (toxins) in the tissues of the body. Ultimately, this toxic build-up can create illness and disease. Ayurveda will immensely help in reducing stress and in detoxification, thus, aiding the process of de-addiction. Turn to the ayurvedic way of living to get rid of addiction completely.

For anyone dealing with alcohol or drug addiction, seeking a structured yoga class should accompany a well-formulated recovery plan. Make yoga practice a regular habit.
