A new study provides a theory for how yoga reduces symptoms in stress-related psychological and medical conditions.
The theory, by researchers from Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM), New York Medical College (NYMC), and the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons (CCPS) appears online in the journal Medical Hypothesis. The investigators believe yoga can aid in the treatment of conditions including anxiety, high blood pressure and cardiac disease. They suggest that specific mind-body practices should be developed for the prevention and treatment of these conditions in conjunction with standard treatments.”
