Many people, especially women, complain about thyroid disorders. We also have a lot of inquiries at our academy regarding Yoga and its ability to heal thyroid disorder. Although, the practice of Yoga does not eliminate the need of medication, it is proven that it can certainly reduce your medical dosage and sometimes even heal you completely.
Two most prevalent types of thyroid disorders are hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) and hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid). People suffering from hypo symptom usually have the tendency of putting on excess weight, become lethargic, notice puffiness in the face, begin to loose hair, get depressed often, etc. People with hyper symptom usually have sleepless nights, sweat profusely, become anxious, and get irritated easily. The good news is, all these are curable and Yoga will certainly help you combat this disease if you are willing to give your hundred percent to Yoga. Many students at Akshar Power Yoga Academy have seen positive changes in their health.
One of the main causes of thyroid disorders is believed to be a stressful lifestyle and these days almost everyone falls a victim to this. The practice of Yoga will help you remove toxins from your body and balance your digestive, respiratory, and nervous system, making it easier for you to remain calm and relax. There are different set of asanas for the above symptoms, which when practiced stimulate the thyroid glands and can help you deal with your decease positively. For example, Setubandhasana, Sarvangasana, Marijariasana, and even Surya Namaskar. Asanas followed by pranayam and meditation will help you immensely in healing yourself and experience positive results. It is a must that you seek an expert’s guidance before you commence your practice.
