Can Yoga Help You Get Rid Of Aches and Even Diseases?

Yoga is one of those workouts that people love because it makes them feel great. Doctors even encourage their patients to practice yoga because it helps them manage every day aches and even prevent the development of certain diseases.

People with asthma have trouble breathing, especially when they do cardio like running. Yoga is gentler than other exercises and the inhaling and exhaling breathing techniques that people do along with the poses helps improve lung function and even reduce asthma symptoms.

Diabetes

Yoga does not cure diabetes, but it does help the endocrine system. Certain asanas can help massage and tone the abdominal organs like the pancreas and liver, and help stimulate the nervous and circulatory system, which in turn helps control diabetes. It helps manage insulin and glucose levels among diabetics much better. Check out this half twist pose:
