We live in a time where a large portion of the population is seen struggling to find balance in their busy lives. The COVID-19 pandemic has no doubt fueled this situation. The rising health issues are alarming. A new most talked about but not cured health concern is an auto-immune disorder.
A little about the auto-immune disorders
An autoimmune disorder is a condition in which your immune system mistakenly attacks your body. Yes! This is possible!
Some autoimmune diseases target only one organ. For eg. Type 1 diabetes damages the pancreas. Other diseases, like systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), affect the whole body.
Scientists know about more than 80 autoimmune diseases but not anything about what causes autoimmune diseases. However, several theories point to an overactive immune system attacking the body after an infection or injury.
Yoga is proven to bring this lost balance, center oneself, & empower humans with powerful tools to bring harmony to mind and body. Holistic healing is what yoga does - the magic!
Words like yoga for Cancer and Yoga for Diabetes are commonly heard. But did you know? You can manage auto-immune disorders with Yoga. Studies have shown that Yoga can help manage such disorders at all, physical, mental, and emotional levels. This is possible with a lifestyle change backed by the right yoga practices, diet, and managing the mind; in other words, a blend of Yoga and Ayurveda.
To name a few autoimmune disorders on which Yoga can make a significant positive impact- Rheumatic Arthritis, Thyroid, Lupus, Alopecia, IBD, Type 1 Diabetes, Psoriasis, and others.
