  • Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet, which emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy foods. Get plenty of potassium, which can help prevent and control high blood pressure. Eat less saturated fat and total fat. Limit the amount of sodium in diet. Although 2,400 milligrams (mg) of sodium a day is the current limit for otherwise healthy adults, limiting sodium intake to 1,500 mg a day will have a more dramatic effect on blood pressure. Manage stress. Reduce stress as much as possible. Practice healthy coping techniques, such as muscle relaxation and deep breathing. Getting plenty of sleep can help, too. Practice slow, deep breathing. Do it on own or try device-guided paced breathing. In various clinical trials, regular use of Resperate — an over-the-counter device approved by the Food and Drug Administration to analyze breathing patterns and help guide inhalation and exhalation — significantly lowered blood pressure.

    • Millions of people in the world suffer from the diseases of the heart and blood vessels.
    • The heart, which is muscular pump, keeps the blood circulation of blood going.
    • But when there is a break down of this complicated mechanism, blood supply to a part of the body may be affected leading to what is known as heart attack.
    • But with yoga the cardiovascular diseases can be cured. Diseases that can be cured are:
    • Arteriosclerosis - hardening of arteries
    • Coronary Thrombosis - sudden blocking of one of the arteries.
  • 21.
    • Yoga helps to cope with this stress so that do not need to depend on smoking or eating unhealthy food.
    • It also helps to find a contentment from within.
    • Smoking should be completely stopped as it constricts the arteries.
  • 22.
    • For daily practice :
    • Keep yourself relaxed and free from anxiety , nervousness, tension and restlessness.
    • Meditation – has been scientifically proven to be beneficial for hypertensive people.
    • Ujjayi Pranayama - can be done while lying for about 3-4 minutes, if the blood pressure rises very high.
    • Nadi Shodak Pranayama - It can be done 10 times.
  • 23.
    • Heart disease
    • General considerations : Consultation with patient’s doctor is advisable because the limitation may differ substantially according to various heart diseases and their stages. Some heart abnormalities require no or little restraint.
    • Contraindications : No practices with internal breath retention. No physically demanding physical exercises exceeding trainee’s tolerance. Practices like Agnisara Dhauti or Shankha Prakshalana may be too risky even in persons with heart problems whose condition is fairly good.
  • 24.
    • Recommendations : Patients shortly after myocardial infarction are advised to practice Savasana, full yoga breath and later some easy Pavanmuktasanasa, in prone position.
  • 25.
    • Hypertension
    • General considerations : Severe hypertension should be medically treated on a long-term basis.
    • Contraindications : Long internal breath retention and inverted asanas, especially in older people, are usually not suitable. Shankha Prakshalana with drinking too much of salty water and too physically demanding exercise may be risky.
    • Recommendations : Relaxation, Ujjayi, Bhramari, and other practices.
  • 26.
    • Hypotension
    • General considerations : Hypotension, if it is not caused by some acute condition, such as internal bleeding, is usually not a serious medical problem.
    • Contraindications : People with hypotension should raise up very slowly after practising inverted asanas or after asanas in lying position to prevent dizziness.
    • Recommendations : Most vigorous Yoga practices such as Surya Namaskara, Dhanurasana, Bhunjangasana and activating pranayamas which increase blood pressure.
  • 27.
    • Recommended Asana :
    • Suryanamaskara (Sun salutation) - activates the whole body.
    • Pavanmuktasana (Relieving the flatus) - wind reliever, corrects malfunctioning of the abdomen. Make 4-6 rounds.
    • Uttanpadasana (Raising the legs) - Helps reduce fat.
    • Santulanasana - normalizes blood circulation.

    YOGA THERAPY FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF RESPIRATORY DISORDERS
  • 40. YOGIC MANAGEMENT OF RESPIRATORY DISORDERS
    • Bridging the voluntary system with the involuntary system
    • TO PREVENT BRONCHOCONSTRICTION AND
    • TO TACKLE THE TRIGGERING FACTORS
    • Concept of yoga in reducing mental and physical stress and regarding the importance of breathing is well documented.
    • The imbalance in the respirations disturbs the pancha pranas.
  • 41.
    • There is intimate connection between the mind and the pancha pranas.
    • Hence by voluntarily changing the respiratory rate, its pattern, its rhythm making it into regular, deep, harmonious and slow breathing, the dysfunction can be corrected.
    • Patience and skill in practice is necessary.
  • 42. BENEFITS OF BREATHING PRACTICES AND PRANAYAMA
    • Slowing of respiratory rate, awareness of breathing and balance of breath are the three main features of Pranayama.
    • The excessive speed, jerks, randomness of breathing and wrong breathing are corrected by Sectional Breathing and Prananusandhana .
  • 43.
    • Cooling Pranayama : Relaxes the muscles, soothens the nervous system and reduces the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). Allergies due to cold can be effectively overcome by prolonged practice of these pranayama.
    • Cooling Pranayamas are contraindicated in acute respiratory conditions like acute tonsillitis, nasal congestion, bronchitis, asthma and respiratory distress. Once the acute situation improves, gradually the Sitali , Sitkari and Sadanta can be introduced.
  • 44.
    • Anuloma – Viloma Pranayama : Reduces the basal metabolic rate, increases the vital capacity and strengthens the immune system. Helps in clearing the congestion in the nostrils and is very useful for Nasal allergy.
    • Nadi Suddhi : Promotes balance between the two nostrils, reduces anxiety and stress levels. Brings equanimity (samatva) – the key to spiritual growth. Keeping awareness is the key in the performance of all pranayamas.
  • 45.
    • Ujjayi : Strengthens the muscles of epiglottis and helps to reduce the effort of breathing.
    • Bhramari : Soothens the nervous system by restoring homeostasis, cultures the voice by increasing the range of frequency (pitch) and melody. Extremely useful in almost all ailments of the psychosomatic type as it reduces the stress factor.
  • 46.
    • Kriyas help in removing the inhibitions and reducing the hyper-reaction of the respiratory system.
    • Asanas help to relax the muscles and unfold the complete potential of stretching and relaxation.

    • General considerations : Severe depressions associated with the risk of suicide should be treated medically, if possible.
    • Contraindications : Most Yoga practices are helpful. The problem is that depressive people have little enthusiasm to practice. After overcoming the first dislike, they may find Yoga practices (or physical exercise or karma Yoga) helpful. According to some authors, long periods of relaxation or meditation may “close up” some depressive people even more.
    • Recommendations : Relaxation, especially short, physical exercises and physical work are usually beneficial.

  • 185. SPECIFIC PRACTICE
    • Neurosis
    • General considerations : The tolerance and needs of people with neuroses may vary considerably. Beside yoga these people may benefit from various forms of psychotherapy.
    • Contraindications : Usually little limitations. Sometimes long relaxation and meditation is not tolerated well because of the unpleasant thoughts and powerful memories which can arise.
    • Recommendations : Relaxation, physical exercises of yoga, many yoga practices according to individual needs.
  • 186.
    • Schizophrenia
    • Contraindications : In severe mental problems like schizophrenia or drug induced psychoses long meditation and relaxation may increase problems. This effect can be even stronger in unfamiliar environment. Also stimulating pranayamas (Kapalabhati, Bhastrika, practices with long internal breath retention) can activate unresolved problems and conflicts and should be usually avoided in severe mental problems.
    • Recommendations : Karma yoga, simple physical practices such as Pavanmuktasana, brief Savasana, support and understanding.
  • 187.
    • Sleep problems
    • Contraindications : All practises activating the body and mind shortly before going to sleep.
    • Recommendations : Relaxation practices are very beneficial, at the end of relaxation a student should not force himself/herself to sleep but should simply remain relaxed and wait. Balanced and regular life style are important.

    SPECIFIC PRACTICES
  • 213.
    • General considerations : It depends very much on the localisation, the type of tumour and other factors. Some tumours can be treated effectively and do not restrict the selection of practices at all, others demand extreme caution. Medical advice regarding the tolerance to exercises is advisable.
    • Contraindications : Excessive physical and mental strain of any kind decreases the natural resistance of the body.
  • 214.
    • Recommendations : Yogic relaxation can definitely be used to improve mental state, to decrease side effects of medical treatment, and to increase immunity. Perhaps also Pavanmuktasanasa, Nadi Shodhana without breath retention, Ujjayi, Bhramari, and Trataka.
  • 215.
    • Recommended Asanas :
    • Suryanamaskara (Sun Salutation) - vitalises the entire body.

    • General considerations : The physical abilities of elderly persons may vary considerably. Generally strenuous physical activity is less tolerated, the risk of fractures increases (e.g. when falling), and various chronic diseases are more common.
  • 222.
    • Contraindications : Extreme and long term backward bending of cervical spine may cause dizziness and restrict the blood flow blood in vertebral arteries which supply the brain. Contraindications are also related to specific health problems. Most elderly people do not feel comfortable in Savasana without a pillow or pad under their head (without it the rounded thoracic spine would bend the neck backward to much).
    • Recommendations : There are many gentle and suitable practices which should be selected according to individual needs (e.g. Pavanmuktasana, when sitting on a chair).
