The healing power of yoga is a great source of therapy for cancer patients, cancer survivors, people with anxiety, depression, stress, or any other debilitating disorder, which could ultimately lead to a chronic illness.
By practising yoga toxins accrued during cancer treatment are cleared out more effectively. Yoga not only stimulates the muscles but also increases blood flow, regulates the glands and enhances the lymphatic flow in the body, all of which magnify the body’s internal purification processes. The deep breathing emphasized in yoga also increases the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the cells, delivering vital nutrients to tired cells and further clearing out toxins. In addition to removing toxins, yoga helps dissipate tension and anxiety and enables patients to settle into a greater sense of ease and well-being.
Stress depresses the body’s natural immune function, which may be one of the reasons that there is evidence that people who practice yoga for cancer, and other chronic illnesses, have greater recovery rates. Yoga is a wonderful nourishing means to strengthen the body and boost the immune system.
Many practising yoga can discover an interesting, subtle benefit, an increased awareness of a great, internal stillness and sense of unity. They’ve found, at the most fundamental level of their own consciousness, a sense of true health and vitality that spills over into other aspects of life.
