Yoga: Types of Yoga, Benefits and Side Effects of Yoga

What is the treatment?

Yoga is defined as collection of mental, spiritual and physical disciplines or practices and it originated in ancient India. There are various types of yoga schools, goals and practices in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Among the different types of yoga the most well-known ones are the Hatha Yoga and the Raja Yoga.

However, there is no written record about the inventor of yoga. Long before any written account of yoga came into existence, yoga practitioners used to practice these physical exercises. Over the years these practices were passed down to their students by the Yogis, and many schools of yoga were developed as this discipline widened globally and gained popularity.

Many ancient Indian religious texts written in Sanskrit, which is the Indo-European language of the Vedas, contains the records of the various techniques of yoga. The “Yoga Sutra” which is a 2000 year old treatise on yogic philosophy, given by the Indian sage Patanjali is a type of guidebook that provides the techniques on how to achieve mastery over the mind and emotions and advice on spiritual growth, providing the framework upon which all the yoga that is practised today is based. The Yoga Sutra is the earliest written record of yoga and one of the oldest texts in existence.

This type of exercise increases the body’s balance and core strength where various postures go hand in hand with deep breathing. The combination of these lowers blood pressure, improves heart health, increases respiratory rates and controls body’s level of cortisol, a hormone which is produced to combat stress.

These postures which have now become an integral part of health and fitness in many yoga centres all over the word, were not originally a dominant component of yoga traditions in India. Some of the common practices of yoga include Pranayama, Dharana and Nada.

How is the treatment done?

The best time to do yoga is in the morning about an hour before having breakfast. After waking up in the morning, emptying the bowels followed by taking a shower, yoga practices can be done to begin the day. The other most suitable time to practice yoga is early evening just before sunset. It is however much better to do such practices at a time that suits a person’s daily schedule, rather than missing it out by being too routined or idealistic.

It should be remembered that integral yoga is always a balanced practice. For best results, one must mix and match the required elements of practice, whenever possible, which helps to improve and enhance a person’s spiritual growth and awareness.

Yoga Positions may be practiced at any time of the day except within two to three hours of taking meals. One can do such postures whenever the body feels tired, tensed, stiff or hyped up. However, practice of too many stimulating postures just before going to bed should be avoided. It is best to practice Asanas first during a person’s yoga routine, followed Pranayama (or breathing excerise and then meditation.

The practice of Pranayama can be done at any time of the day except within two to three hours of eating. It can be done when stressed or tired or when the space does not allow room for postures. It is best to practice Pranayama directly after practicing yoga. This practice of Pranayama is very much necessary for a successful and complete process of meditation.

Meditation can be practiced at any time of the day when a person feels comfortable and relaxed. For best results meditation should be avoided within two to three hours of having meals, while feeling sleepy, or when mentally “hyped-up”.

Who is eligible for the treatment? (When is the treatment done?)

Yoga can be done practically by everyone, regardless of their gender, age or physical limitations. It is a deep personal practice and is basically based on the concept of “being in the present moment”. It can be done without judgement of any kind and even without competition. Every pose can be modified to suit one’s specific needs, injuries or ailments. Practicing of yoga helps to gain more strength, balance and flexibility as well as helps in improving concentration and focus. Moreover, it enables a person to sleep at night and feel fresh and energetic throughout the day.

Who is not eligible for the treatment?

There are no restrictions as such when it comes about practicing yoga. A person of any age, gender or physique can practice yoga. However, a person can temporarily avoid yoga if some conditions arise that hinders them from doing so. These conditions may include asthma, eye surgery, back injury, carpal tunnel syndrome, headache, diarrhoea, heart problems, knee injury, menstruation, insomnia, low or high blood pressure, neck injury, pregnancy or shoulder injury.

Are there any side effects?

Though the benefits of yoga are many, it also has a few disadvantages. Serious side effects of yoga are generally rare Some of the common side effects of yoga include musculoskeletal injury, complication with glaucoma, abnormal increase in blood pressure due to forceful breathing, back injury, muscle strain and others.

An over stretch may happen to occur if a person ignores body’s warning signs and try to go beyond their limitations. Stretching should be done upto the limit one is comfortable with or might feel a mild pull.

Practicing certain yoga positions such as inversions, including Headstand and Shoulderstand, increases the ocular pressure and can cause complications among people with eye conditions such as glaucoma.

Practicing too aggressively and not being mindful as one move into postures can lead to injury. Hence, it is advisable to practice under the guidance of a trained teacher.

What are the post-treatment guidelines?

Probably the first thing a person feels like doing after a yoga class is that, drinking a lot of water. However, drinking water just immediately after a yoga class should be avoided. Just after a yoga class, it is advisable to take rest at least for 10 minutes in Savasana (with relaxed and normal breathing). It is always recommended that after practising yoga, a person should drink water at least after 15 minutes and eat at least half an hour after the practice of yoga session ends.

One can even have some naturally hydrating drink like fruit juice or coconut water. Hydrating foods like watermelon or cucumber is also good after a yoga session.

Having protein rich food is advisable after a yoga session. This can include drinking low fat milk, eating yogurt, snacking on broiled chicken, hardboiled eggs, sliced cheese or some fruits.

How long does it take to recover?

People have many reasons for attending yoga classes. For some, it is at the advice of a health care provider for helping with body pain. Others may attend such classes for a relief from stress and anxiety. A short daily practice of yoga, along with reciting a few mantras helps to seek mental peace and solace.

For people who are active with sports and practice of other exercises, practicing yoga once or twice in a week is sufficient. However, those who want to master complex postures must practice them with more dedication and commitment.

What is the price of the treatment in India?

The price of Yoga classes in India varies in different places. However the average price range is Rs 500 per class. It is about Rs 1200 for unlimited class of one day. On the other hand unlimited classes for a week and a month are about Rs 5000 and Rs 12000 respectively. The prices of yoga classes in metropolitan cities are usually higher than as in small towns and cities.

Are the results of the treatment permanent?

Yoga is a combination of physical, mental and spiritual practices. The effectiveness of yoga bears fruit when practiced daily at regular timings. Early in the morning and early in the evening are the two best timings for practicing yoga. Practicing yoga on a regular basis helps to reduce body weight, increases awareness, makes a person stress free, helps to release blocked emotions, detoxifies the body and helps to eliminate bad habits. All these benefits for yoga shows the best result when practiced regularly and under proper guidance of a well-trained teacher.

What are the alternatives to the treatment?

For people who have practiced yoga and did not find it enjoyable or appealing can switch to other alternative exercises of mind or body. Tai Chi, Qigong, Pilates, Dance and Martial Arts are a few practices that offer an alternative to yoga. All these practices of physical exercise focuses on balance, concentration, reducing stress and tension, improves flexibility of the body, gives a feeling of energy and integrates mind, body and spirit.

Old Age - How Exercising Will Help You?

Age is a major factor that leads to degeneration of muscles and bones of the body.

1. You must consult your physician before starting any form of exercise, if you have a history of fractured bones, tissue damage, muscle rupture or any other traumatic forms of injury.
2. In case you have a heart condition or chest pain, you have to carefully choose your exercise schedule. It is most recommended to seek the opinion of a doctor or therapist.

Benefits of exercise in older people:
1. Stretching exercises for elderly people can be very effective in reducing the normal degeneration of the muscles.
2. They help to maintain flexibility and range of motion.
3. Stretching exercises are beneficial to the respiratory system as well and can be extremely relaxing.

5. Exercises reduce any joint stiffness and difficulties as well in upper body movements.
6. Exercises can provide relief from arthritis pain that hinders activities.

7. Joint exercise can also help to reduce chances of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.

Some of the exercises advised for healthy joints:
1. Ankle and wrist circles
2. Knee flexion and extension
3. Calf raises
4. Heel stands
5. Side, forward and backward bending
6. Neck exercises

How to exercise if you are a late beginner:
1. Warm up is of utmost necessity for stretching exercises to prevent muscle pull, trauma or other injuries.
2. Start with light yoga and brisk walking.
3. Relax before you begin your regimen. Breathe deeply. Think of pleasant things.
4. Set small achievable goals. If you are walking for 5 minutes, increase it 8 or 10 minutes the next day. You will be surprised at your own improvement.
5. Make exercise enjoyable. Listen to your favourite music to boost yourself.

Chemotherapy - 11 Tips To Help You Get Through It!

Chemotherapy can be frightening, and the very thought of going through it can be an ordeal for most people. Many resources and tips can be used to minimize the discomfort and lessen the burden. Let us have a look at a few of these.

  1. Support network: Chemotherapy can be physically daunting and more than the treatment a person needs all the emotional and moral support he/she can get. Have friends and family always by your side. You can have peace of mind when there is a person you can trust and bank upon in taking care of you.
  2. Discuss the medication with your oncologist: Before understanding the treatments have a detailed discussion about the current medication you are undergoing, as this may hamper the chemotherapy treatment. The dosage has to be adjusted accordingly.
  3. Keep the body hydrated: Your body gets dehydrated on the day of the treatment. Please ensure that the body is properly hydrated and plenty of fluids are there in the body.
  4. Be comfortable: Taking chemotherapy can have an effect on your morale. Hence make sure that you are keeping yourself occupied with books and games or your favorite music to while away the time.
  5. Wear comfortable clothes: This makes all the difference in the treatment as having loose fitting clothes can relive pressures in your mind. Always choose clothes that you are comfortable in.
  6. Ask questions: Chemotherapy treatments can and will cause side effects. Hence ask and keep yourself updated as much as possible. More importantly after the treatment ask questions on the possible recuperation period and how best to go about it.
  7. Symptoms of nausea and vomiting: It is natural that most of the patients feel light headed or have a vomiting sensation when undergoing the treatment. Always make sure that the doctor or the nurse knows about it. Make yourself as comfortable as possible. Some medications to prevent nausea can be had along with the chemotherapy drugs.
  8. Avoiding infection: Chemotherapy affects the immune system of the body. Hence it can get easily susceptible to diseases. Have a general cleanliness around your surroundings. Avoid crowds if possible and keep your hands always clean and wear clean, comfortable clothes that don't stick to the body.
  9. Right diet: Chemotherapy makes you prone to weight loss. Hence having the desired nutritional levels is mandatory. Consult a dietician and eat healthy. It is not advisable to gain weight either during or after chemotherapy.
  10. Adequate Rest: Our body needs all the rest that it can get when undergoing chemotherapy. Make sure that the body gets proper sleep and is relaxed. You can try for meditation and simple yoga exercises that can help in rejuvenating the body.
  11. Skin Care: Prolonged treatment can affect the moisture content in the skin. Have a good skin cream and lotions handy to take care of it. In some cases, chemotherapy causes hair fall. Make sure that a proper wig or a treatment plan is made beforehand to take care of the issues.

Chemotherapy treatment can be emotionally daunting. Having a few precautions like the ones stated above can make all the difference in how successful we are in coping with it.

World Brain Tumor Day - 6 Tips To Help You Prevent Yourself Against It!

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine, Fellow In Pain Management, DM - Neurology
Neurologist, Delhi
World Brain Tumor Day - 6 Tips To Help You Prevent Yourself Against It!

June is known as the Brain Tumour Month worldwide. It’s worthwhile to raise public awareness and educate people about brain tumour, a disease which, though is rare is but can be really deadly. More than 500 new cases are diagnosed with brain tumour every day worldwide. The number of patients with secondary tumours are even higher than 500. However, it is common across all ages.  A primary brain tumour is a tumour that begins in the brain. It can be either malignant, which means it contains cancer cells or benign i.e. does not contain cancer cells. A secondary or metastatic brain tumour is usually cancerous. It starts elsewhere in the body and sends cancerous cells which grow in the brain.

Here are a few facts that each one of us should know about this dangerous disease

  1. Brain tumours can occur at any age.
  2. We don’t know what causes brain tumors. Family history and high dose radiation like X-rays increases your risk.
  3. Doctors group brain tumors by grade which means the way the brain cells look under a microscope. A higher grade number means the cells appear more abnormal and the more aggressively the tumour usually behaves.
  4. Brain tumors are graded as grade I, grade II, or grade III, or grade IV.

Symptoms
The symptoms of brain tumour depend on the size, type, and location of the brain tumour. Some common symptoms which should not be ignored are-

  1. Headaches
  2. Seizures
  3. Problems with vision
  4. Vomiting
  5. Mental and personality changes
  6. Balance problems and trouble walking
  7. Problems in speaking

Diagnosis
Brain tumours are diagnosed by the doctor based on the medical history and physical examination along with a slew of specialized tests of the brain and nervous system.

Treatment

  1. Surgery
  2. Radiation therapy
  3. Chemotherapy
  4. Anti-seizure medicines
  5. Steroids
  6. Ventricular peritoneal shunt
  7. Combination of treatments

How can you safeguard yourself?
The primary tool to prevent brain tumours is by controlling your lifestyle. This means eating healthy, exercising, avoiding known carcinogens in your environment, and reducing stress.

  1. Sleep: Sleep is a friend for brain health. An adequate amount of rest with eyes shut keeps your brain health.
  2. Frankincense oil: Along with yoga, meditation, and breathing exercises to reduce stress, inhaling frankincense oil can help alleviate inflammation in the brain.
  3. Anti cancer diet: Consuming a diet rich in cancer-fighting nutrients like antioxidants is critical in preventing brain tumors.
  4. Ketogenic diet: A ketogenic diet is a high protein diet. It reduces oxidative stress and inflammation in the brain which is associated with brain tumours. It also shuts down the nutrient supply to tumors.
  5. Calorie restriction: Dietary restriction, especially fasting has anti-carcinogenic properties just as the ketogenic diet.
  6. Limit exposure to mobile phones: Cell phones use increases risk for brain tumours. So restriction prevents these tumours. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Neurologist.

Popular Questions & Answers

In 12th, I was able to read 15 hours a day without any stress and anxiety, tension. But now I'm graduated in Engineering and. Now when I try to read 15 hours a day there's stress, tension,depression. And even if I do exercises, yoga, there is hidden stress in my mind. So what can I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
In the 12th you were probably 6 years younger. That is a lot of time that has passed by and your mind and body is not the same. Even if it was the same, it is not advisable to study so much everyday. You need at least 8 hours of sleep anyway. You may also have some problems related to delayed adolescence to boot. First of all, the intensity of stress is in the perception. Change your perception, there is no stress: it’s like looking at a glass half full or half empty. Apart from that, all your emotions need to be dealt with by expression i.e. You need to talk about the feelings. Then you need to exercise regularly, eat fiber foods (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), sleep at least 8 hours every day, learn Yoga and meditation, learn stress management, and do a personality development course. Because you are into studies, follow a tight schedule, with good breaks and study habits. If group study helps you, do it with the right people. If tutoring is required, arrange for the same. These should see you through successfully without the stress.

I am Dr. Manisha Ranjan. I am the senior consultant at max hospital in the gynecology and obstetrics department.

So today I am going to discuss about the role of exercise and yoga during pregnancy. So we have seen nowadays the number of C section has been increased and its not because we doctors, its because the sedentary lifestyle and the faulty food style of the patient since very very childhood. So nowadays its our oath to educate and aware each and every patient to just go with all the normal healthy food style and the exercise and yoga. In the antenatal period and to achieve normal weight as soon as possible in the postnatal period. So nowadays we have seen Obesity, pregnancy induced hypertension, diabetes mellitus during pregnancy and because of all these complications, the rate of C section has been increased. So during pregnancy, if you are going with all these normal yoga and exercise it reduces the incidence of all these major complications of the pregnancy. It helps to achieve the normal weight of the baby and the mother also. Excessive weight can during these activities is totally aborted in these periods. So few normal elements of the pregnancy is very worrying some to each and every patient. These are, Nausea, the vomiting, acidity, constipation if you are doing all these exercises and the yoga so the incidence and the severity of these irritating symptoms decreases. So during anti natal period especially in the 1st trimester and the last trimester, we should go with simple exercises like breathing exercise, like doing all the stretching and the relaxing exercise, the leg muscle exercise. Leg muscle exercise decreases the pitiletima, the leg cramps, the incidence of deep vein thrombosis same with the breathing exercise, supplies oxygen, fresh oxygen to the baby, improves the circulation. So during pregnancy period when we are doing good food style, we are having good food, and every day we are taking, doing 30 of walk, and 30 to 45 minutes of yoga and exercise the complication get totally decrease. Do dear friends I just want to tell you please just start taking all the healthy food and doing exercise to reduce the rate of C section. It just relaxes our pelvis and increase the strength of pelvic muscle. Make the pelvis muscle tout during, when we are in the labor pain it help the patient to push down the baby down and the delivery become very smooth and easy.

Vedic Namaskar. Mai Dr. Suresh Gujjar. Naturopathy and Yog Department, Vedic Gram. Mai aaj aap ko bata raha hun aaj ki bhaag daud wali zindagi mein jo rogo se hum garshit ho rahe hai un rogo se bachaw k liye Yog aur Naturopathy ka kya mehetwa hai. Yog aur Naturopathy k dwara hum uss lifestyle jo humari kharab ho chuki hai, jo jewan chariya hum bekar kar chuke hai un sab se bahar aane k liye, un bimariyo se bahar aane k liye Yog aur Naturopathy aap ka kaise help karta hai. Sabse pehle aaj subah uthne se leke shaam ko sone tak hazaro aise kaam rehte hai jinka sharirik aur mansik dabaw humare upar rehta hai.

Aaj 3 saal se lekar k 100 saal ka jo baccha ho yuwa ho ya wridh ho sabhi tanaw wali zindagi jee rahe hai. 5 saal ka baccha hua nahi ki usko bag leke school jana hai, shaam ko tution karna hai fir video game ya TV se uski puri lifestyle, fir raat ko late se khaana, late se sona hai, subah late uthna hai yehi aaj lifestyle humari ho gayi hai. Air pollution, jaise hi hum bahar nikalte hai puri pollution hi pollution nazar aati hai, in sab se jo rog ho rahe hai, sabse zyada diabetes, madhumeye k rogi bohot hi zyada aaj aap k samne dikhai dete hai. High blood pressure, mansik tanaw, pet ki samasyayein jo fast food k karan ho rahi hai, in sab mein naturopathy kya kam karta hai, yog kya kam karta hai, kaise un chiz ko, un bimariyo ko hum dur kar sakte hai.

To Naturopathy kya karta hai, Naturopathy ka matlab hai prakritik. Humara sharir jo hai unhi 5 tathwo se bani hai jinse prakriti bani hai- aakash, wayu, aagni, jal aur prithvi. Ye 5 mahabhut. Inhi panch mahabhuto se humara sharir bana hai. Prakriti swayam mein ek chikitsak hai, agar hum prakriti k sath chalte hai to bade se bade asadhya rog ko bhi hum prakritik chikitsa k dwara, yog k dwara thik kar sakte hai. Lekin aaj hum allopathy chikitsa k taraf, fasat result mile islye hum injection, tablets inhi pe zyada wishwas karte hai. Lekin ye sab kya karte hai, humari bimari ko thik karne k bajai inhe daba rahi hai, aur jo bimari dabti hai, koi bhi chiz ho, agar dharti k niche bhi koi chiz dabti hai koi hulchal hoti hai to wo jwalamukhi k roop mein bahar nikalta hai. Aise hi humare sharir k andar jo toxins ikkatthe ho jaate hai to wo kisi na kisi rog k roop mein, kisi badi bimari k roop mein, shuruwat mein phode phunsi ityadi k roop mein bahar nikalne lagte hai ya kabz ya ulti waman in chizo k dara bahar nikalne lagte hai. Aur agar kaafi lamba procedure ho jaata hai to cancer, asthma aisi chize bhi dheere dheere ban jaati hai. To in chizo ko hum prakritik chikitsa k sath kaise thik kar sakte hai.

Wayu chikitsa mein upwas chikitsa jo Naturopathy mein bataya gaya hai, upwas ek bohot hi acchi ousadhi hai jaise ki pashuye bimar hone pe apna khaana aur peena chor dete hai waise hi agar insaan bimar hone pe upwas chikitsa ka sahara le leta hai to bagair kisi problem k aapne bimari ko thik kar sakta hai. Aise hi hum jal chikitsa mein aate hai, jal k visesh prayog hai. Aaj hum jaldi jaldi khaade hoke paani peete hai, bootle se paani pete hai, bhagte huye paani pete hai, eksath adhik paani pete hai. Prakritik roop se bhi kaha gaya hai k upar waale ne humein 32 daant diye hai, jo khaana khaate hai jaldi nahi khaa pa rahe hai, fast food kha rahe hai. 32 daant ka matlab hai k pratyek grass ko aap ek ek bar chabao to wo bilkul liquid form mein aa jayega aur kaha gaya hai k paani ko khaane k tarah piyo aur khaane ko paani k tarah to aap k pet ki koi bhi problem nahi hogi. Agar aap ki lifestyle sahi hai, raat ko sahi time pe soote hai to na hi aap o sharirik aur mansik wikar honge na hi tanaw wysat honge.

Isme agar hum yog ka bhi sahara lete hai, to yog jiske baare main aaj kal bohot hi jankari ho gayi hai lekin aaj bhi logo ko yog k andar jo hai vo ab bhi logo ko nahi pata. Yog ka matlab sharir ko todna phodna yehi lagta hai. Lekin yog to ek bohot hi baada samundar hai uska ek chota sa hissa yoga hai. Humne sharir ko moda to hum yoga karte hai. Yog ka matlab hai aap apne aap ko sharirik, mansik aur adhyatmik roop se swasth rakhne ki jo kriya karte hai use yog kehte hai. Aap ne ek do aasan kar liye aur yog ho gaya nahi ye galat hai. Yog ka matlab wahi hai k aap aatma ko parmatma se milaye.

Lekin aaj hum sanskarik yug mein rahte hai jaha aatma o parmatma se milane ka matlab aap apne aap ko swasth kaise rakh paate hai. Sharirik, mansik aur adhyatmik level pe aap apna balance kaise bana k rakh paate hai, isilye yog k andar visesh aasana, aasana k andar hum pranayam, dhyaan, in 3 chizo ko bhi agar hum apnaate hai to hum bohot chizo se mukt ho sakte hai, bohot se wikar dur kar sakte hai. Agar hum sharir k andar bina koi dawai liye bhi, bohot se aisi chize hai jaise nariyog, humare naari k surya aur chandan, aap bohot se bimaari ko surya aur chandan chalakar bhi thik kar sakte hai.

Iski agar aap ko adhik jankaari chahiye to aap Vedic Gram me aa kar humse sampark kar sakte hai ya Librate pe humse sampark kar sakte hai.
