According to a recent study it has been observed that yoga therapy can reduce risk factors and improve the condition of those with heart disease. Yoga exercises can aid improve physical, psychological and spiritual health - or so it is claimed. Researchers at Peninsula Medical School, in South-West England, reviewed the best evidence they could find on the effects of yoga therapy in heart disease. They found six - out of 11 - trials that were good enough to draw useful conclusions.
These showed that yoga recuperates lipid profiles and helps with weight loss. Yoga also decreases the number of angina episodes, increases exercise tolerance and decreases narrowing of the arteries (coronary stenosis). Researchers feel that Given that yoga is relatively cheap, and acceptable to many people as a therapy, it would be useful to have some bigger studies to confirm its effectiveness for heart disease.
