 Yoga may Help People Suffering from Arrhythmia

People suffering from arrhythmia, or irregular heartbeat, may benefit by doing yoga, a new study by researchers at the University of Kansas reveals.

The researchers conducted a small study involving 52 patients suffering from persistent paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, a recurrent form of arrhythmia.

The participants were made to perform yoga over a period of three months and the researchers found that all of the patients reported lesser incidence of arrhythmia with 20 percent of the participants not experiencing any episodes during the three month period.

"These findings underscore the therapeutic value of a low-cost non-invasive therapy such as yoga to effectively complement the conventional treatment strategies in improving atrial fibrillation patient care. Given the high prevalence of [the condition] and costs of conventional therapy, the public health relevance of these findings is very pertinent", the researchers wrote in their report published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
