Preventive benefits of yoga


Physiological, biochemical and various all-round beneficial effects
have been reported by a number of studies in normal subjects
practising TM as follows:

Oxygen consumption and metabolic rate


Oxygen consumption reduced to the extent of 16–25% by regular
practice of TM for 40–60 min. Also the reduction in the metabolic rate
achieved after TM was found to be even more than that during the
state of deep sleep .

Reduction in heart rate

Reduction in heart rate by 5 beats/min (from 71 to 66) was reported
during TM and it remained at that level up to 15 min after TM.

Perceptual motor performance

The speed and accuracy in performing complex perceptual motor tes
improved in subjects practising TM.

Level of plasma cortisol and plasma prolactin


Level of plasma cortisol reduced by 25–30% and plasma prolactin
level was found to be increased in subjects practising TM . Blood lactate level dropped from 10 to 6 mg/100 mL (Wallace and Benson, 1972), all indicating a profound state of muscular relaxation. Besides these, other benefits in normal subjects are as follows:

  1. 1.Reversal of biological ageing as proved by the measurement of
    auditory threshold, near point vision and systolic blood pressure
  2. 2.Improved athletic performance with reduction of heart rate
  3. 3.Feeling of restful alertness
  4. 4.Improved memory, intelligence, academic performance and
    concentration

Dr .Lalit Choudhary
Hii everyone, I'm Dr Lalit Choudhary PT. Born and brought up in delhi. Practicing as a professional PHYSIOTHERAPIST. As a therapist I love to interact with others and and get myself updated regarding all the social issues which are leading my countrymen to distress themselves. Yes, I agree that Iam a workaholic but my work gives me immense pleasure but there are sometimes when I feel stressed up so to relax myself I travel to new places, meet new people and try to adopt their culture. Most of the time I like to travel hills as it helps me to relax and enjoy our nature beauty. For being a good therapist and to deal with all the difficulties I always prefer to be good listener and have good patience that is what my strength is. I also work as a social worker and the Founder of thesocialphysiofitnessclub and PHYSIO FIT INDIA. In last I just want to say that " I believe that physical therapy is not just a therapy but actually a remedy which not only make you physically fit but also adds happiness, joy and more days to your life." So don't just sit and thought now it's time to stand and work on yourself.
