Did You Know That Yoga Reduces Inflammation In Breast Cancer Survivor

Practicing a unification where various systems that exist within the human being including the emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual systems remains calm and composed, at least three hours a week for three months has been found to lower the fatigue and inflammation in breast cancer survivors, a recent study says.

The tradition of yoga is 500 years old and still it persists. In fact it is gaining popular with the every passing day.

Experts admit that the physical postures of yoga are used to alleviate health problems, reduce stress and make the spine supple in contemporary times and it is also used as a complete exercise programme and physical therapy routine.

According to researchers from the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center, at six months ? three months after the formal yoga had ended ? fatigue was 57 per cent lower in the women who had done yoga, compared with those who had not. Inflammation, measured  by blood tests, was reduced by up to 20 per cent.

?We also think the results could easily generalize to other groups of people who have issues with fatigue and inflammation,? Janice Kiecolt-Glaser, the lead researcher and a psychiatry and psychology professor at Ohio State, said in a statement.

?Breast cancer survivors with lower levels of physical activity have a higher risk for premature death,? Kiecolt-Glaser and colleagues from Ohio State, including her husband Ronald Glaser, wrote in this week?s Journal of Clinical Oncology. About a third of survivors say that fatigue interferes with their daily activities.
