The health ministry is working with S Vyasa and Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthanam institutions to carryout research and gather scientific evidence to prove yoga can treat serious ailments.

Yoga experts and medical practitioners claim that yoga not only provides palliative care but also preventive and curative for lifestyle diseases like diabetes, hypertension, psychological disorders and certain types of cancers.

Some doctors recommend yoga for better sleep, reduction of stress and weight control.

"Exercise improves health and can extend life. Adding as little as 30 minute of moderately intense daily physical activity can help one avoid a host of serious diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, depression, and several types of cancer, particularly breast and colon cancers," says Dr K K Aggarwal, president of the Heart Care Foundation of India and secretary general of Indian Medical Association.
