What is Yoga Therapy and Healing Through Applied Yogic Science?
Yoga is an invaluable means to protect and heal the body, mind and soul through a holistic three fold approach to health management, composed of recovery, maintenance and prevention. Advantages of yogic healing for all age groups, with various injury and ailments, have been validated with scientific studies of yoga using biological measures to assess results. Benefits of practicing yoga for healing are numerous. It assists the body to recover after acute or chronic illness and injury by strengthening the weakened muscle, promoting efficient oxygen circulation, increasing flexibility in the spine, which allows for free flow of energy. Yoga speeds up the process of regeneration and rehabilitation, mainly by reducing inflammation, the natural reaction of the body to injury and irritation, and by purifying the body of toxins. Many chronic diseases that people suffer from today are associated with inflammation, such as heart diseases, diabetes and arthritis. Patients going through cancer treatment also suffer inflammation as a side effect. Respiratory diseases, such as asthma, are also common ailments, which can be treated through yoga.
Compatibility of Yoga and Modern Medicine
Yoga and modern medicine are not mutually exclusive. In some cases, surgical procedure or medication is absolutely necessary for a patient. However, maintaining a healthy body through the practice of yoga will enhance the effectiveness of medication with less dosage and speed up the recovery process. The basic difference between yogic treatment and modern medicine is that yoga focuses on the root of the problem and never isolates the symptoms from the person. In contrast, modern medicine focuses on suppressing the symptoms of the disease with the use of external intervention or drugs. Yoga provides relief in many diseases which are resistant to conventional forms of therapy, especially in the area of psychosomatic diseases. The practice of meditation is much more effective against mental and emotional illnesses than the temporary suppression of symptoms through the use of drugs. Patients learn to take charge of their own recovery rather than becoming dependent on foreign substances.
Steps to Recovery
For successful yogic healing to take place, the patient must first take a resolve to dedicate him or herself to the discipline. Regular practice is imperative for the body, mind and spirit to create an internal balance which is healing in its self. Yoga enhances natural healing through deep relaxation, which may need practice when a patient is experiencing physical or mental pain or discomfort.
Secondly, finding an experienced and qualified teacher who can accurately diagnose the problem and prescribe the appropriate method of treatment is crucial in the healing process.
