Yoga therapy offers
1.QUICK RELIEF FROM DISEASES

3.CURE IN A CERTAIN TIME
People who suffered from various psychosomatic (diseases affecting the body and mind simultaneously)diseases found YOGA to be an excellent form of therapy. Yoga takes control of the whole body and the mind hence that part which suffers from a particular ailment also starts to function properly.
In our Yoga therapy centre in Tamil nadu,South India, I treated a 51-year-old man who had 1.fat,2.diabetes 3.hypertension 4. swollen leg for few years. I taught only 7 simple Yoga Asanas and a particular form of tradition Indian breathing to that man. He was a regular practitioner for 6 months , amazingly his blood sugar level became normal for the first time after many, many years.Obviouly, he was jubilant.
The important point that should be noted, I feel, is the confidence level of the person and the faith that he had in yoga. He can take care of his body and mind ! then what ?! He can manage himself life long. Managing oneself by oneself is the only way !! It seems !!
A Diabetic like him can discontinue all medications if he practices regular yoga asanas and breathing.
