Relaxation Proved to Influence Disease States in Healthy Ways

We all know that some R & R is good for us, but researchers have proved that even when we have diseases that are resistant to healing  relaxation is one of the better ways to manage it.

A “collaborative investigation by members of the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind/Body Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and the Genomics Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) appears in the open-access journal PLoS One.” (Physorg)

The research proves that what ever you use to relax into deep relaxation, whether it is meditation, yoga, tai chi, sitting at the beach etc.. it can alter the gene expression of your disease and this “nonpharmacological intervention help patients deal with disorders ranging from high blood pressure, to pain syndromes, to infertility, to rheumatoid arthritis? That question may have been answered by a study finding that eliciting the relaxation response – a physiologic state of deep rest – influences the activation patterns of genes associated with the body’s response to stress.”

It might be time to think about getting some much needed R & R! Would you like to

  • reduce your pain levels,
  • reduce your high blood pressure,
  • reduce your inflammation
  • reduce your stress levels

and even

  • increase your ability to handle stress in your life
  • increase your energy levels
  • wake feeling refreshed and ready for your day
  • increase your heart health
  • increase your cognitive abilities (brain health)

We just might have an answer for you: balancenoosa will be announcing our

Yoga Proves to Be Effective in Reducing Blood Pressure

Yoga for Blood pressureEveryone knows that Yoga has many health benefits, and now they are proving it, “Preventive Research Center at Yale’s School of Medicine found that “yoga may be as effective in reducing total blood pressure as conventional drug treatments.” Hypertension stresses the kidneys and this causes them to push backward out of their natural alignment.” What is really interesting is the The Yale Medical Group have quite a few research studies happening at the moment re: Yoga.

One for Hypertension (High Blood Pressure), another to see how Yoga affects Asthma, and even one to see how Yoga can help people with cancer! So even the medical community cannot deny the myriad health benefits of doing Yoga regularly. Why not get to a class or book a session today!

If you are in the Sunshine Coast area of Queensland balancenoosa will be happy to bring your Yoga wellness session right to you at home, why not book a session right now.
