1. Yoga can restore this harmony and cure many lifestyle related diseases. This can happen without any medicine. If person is taking any medicine, yoga can only helps it work better and eventually rendering it unnecessary. However, yoga may not help if person continues to live unhealthy lifestyle. Also, yoga can cure lifestyle related diseases if it is practiced in proper manner; example some yogic exercises are not intended for people suffering from blood pressure. Doing those exercises can only worsen the disease. Therefore yoga should be adopted as a targeted therapy only under an expert teacher. This is particularly important when the disease is severe. Yoga cannot help in medical emergencies or when rapidly acting therapy is required.
2. Yoga is a holistic therapy. It works for all aspects of personality including body, mind, vital force etc. Effect of yoga is deeply transforming and long lasting. Effect of yoga is broad. For example yoga done for cardiovascular health not only works on heart but also all other parts of body that directly or indirectly relate to heart. Because of it’s wider scope yoga therapy not only treats primary symptoms and causes of disease but also the secondary conditions and causes that are not so obvious.
