Learning How to Use Yoga to Cure Your Ailments and Illnesses

Simply Shawn N Jenn Disclosure

I have to admit that I am becoming OBSESSED with yoga. I find myself practicing and striking poses in the oddest places these days. Sometimes I even choose to stop what I am doing just to do a few poses so that I can refocus on the information at hand. I love the practice of yoga and was very interested in learning more when I saw the book, BKS Iyenger Yoga I was instantly intrigued.

BKS Iyenger Yoga offers you the ability to look up the different ailments that you might have in your life. You can check out the different types of ailments and then find yoga poses that can help you to cure them naturally. This is a great way to use eastern medicine without having to leave your home. Plus if it does not work for you there are always the choices for you to choose to visit your doctor. I wanted to be able to tell you amazing things that I have noticed from checking out some of these poses on my own.

I will admit that I suffer from some severe digestive issues and that the poses and combinations of poses really seem to fix the problems that I am generally experiencing. I would not have believed that something that I have tried multiple medicines and therapies for could be solved simply with something that I already love.
In addition to the digestive issues that I have used yoga for I have began using yoga for everything that I find difficult in my life. Even if I only get a few poses in I figure that this is better than nothing. I try to pose my way through morning television shows or any television shows where I am not working and writing.

I am focused mostly on the section for obesity as I am really trying to cure myself from this disease that I suffer from. Most people try to hide behind their obesity and do not call it what it is. It is a sickness and a disease just as much as anything else. By doing the yoga poses that are listed here I have been able to consistently keep in with my goal to lose weight and change who I am for the better.
I also find that yoga is a great past time for curing boredom. If I am bored I look up something in the book that I have been struggling with and start to strike some poses. This a healthier alternative to my old reliance on food and snacks when I was bored. Instead of doing something unhealthy I am choosing to do something healthy.

Finally one additional great thing about this book is that there is a very thorough introduction that goes through all of the poses with detailed images and instructions. It tells you everything that you would ever need to know about the poses. Then you just flip to the back of the book and you can find your ailment where you will see the series of poses that are great for that ailment. Then you can flip back to the front of the book to the detailed descriptions to figure out if you are doing the poses right. The best thing is that the page numbers are listed right there making it easy for you to look up what you need to find.
I would highly recommend the BKS Iyenger Yoga book for anyone who is interested in finding out how they can be their best self. It is also good for those friends who want to avoid traditional medicine and doctors and are trying to live a more natural life.
