Millions of people in the world suffer from the diseases of the heart and blood vessels. The heart, which is muscular pump, keeps the blood circulation of blood going. But when there is a break down of this complicated mechanism, blood supply to a part of the body may be affected leading to what is known as heart attack.
But with yoga the cardiovascular diseases can be cured. Diseases that can be cured are:
Arteriosclerosis - hardening of arteries
Coronary Thrombosis - sudden blocking of one of the arteries.
Degenerative Heart disease - gradual decay of blood vessels due to excessive smoking of tobacco.
Hypertensive Heart Disease - Straining of blood vessels due to high blood pressure. This leads to hardening of blood vessels, hence diminishing the supply of blood.
High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) - Blood pressure remains high leading to disorders like lack of strength, bad temper, visionary troubles, tiredness, headache, coldness of hands and feet.
Yoga helps you cope with this stress so that you do not need to depend on smoking or eating unhealthy food. It also helps you find contentment from within. Smoking should be completely stopped as it constricts the arteries.
