Conditions which Yoga can help manage

Dr KK Aggarwal, Recipient of Padma Shri

Yoga works at the level of wave particle duality of the body. By shifting from sympathetic to parasympathetic mode it can heal and help various conditions as below.

• Yoga can relieve chronic stress: A small study done at the University of Utah conducted in experienced yoga practitioners, people with fibromyalgia and healthy volunteers showed that yoga increased tolerance to stress. People who had a poorly regulated response to stress were also more sensitive to pain, while the yoga practitioners had the highest pain tolerance (Harvard Health).

• Yoga can reduce anxiety: Twelve sessions of regular hatha yoga exercise significantly reduced stress, anxiety and depression in women suggesting its role as complementary medicine, which also reduces treatment cost by reducing the use of drugs (Masoumeh Shohani, et al. The effect of yoga on stress, anxiety, and depression in women. Int J Prev Med. 2018;9:21) more

Non-communicable diseases are a reality in India’s tribal pockets too

Though tribal communities are just 8% of the Indian population, they account for about 30% percent of all malaria cases. The goal of malaria elimination by 2030 cannot be met unless tribal health is prioritized as majority of malaria cases and fatalities are from these areas.
