Yoga Techniques for Curing and Preventing the Heart Issues
Human heart is a fist sized organ placed in the upper chest area, slightly towards the left. The heart beats due to an electrical impulse which is not connected to any other function or organ of the body. The main function of the heart is to circulate nutrition rich blood to every nook and corner of the body, and also to re oxygenate the deoxygenated blood by coordinating with the lungs. Strength of the heart beat is the power needed to flush the oxygenated blood to the last edge of the minutest capillaries for keeping every tissue in the body alive and healthy.
Daily stress and strain, bad lifestyle, and unhealthy eating habits tell upon the strength of the beat, Push, being generated by the heart. Smoking can reduce the quality of blood being circulated to the muscles and tissues of the body which includes the muscles of the heart itself. Unwanted stress can constrict the blood vessels and capillaries upping the rate of flow of the blood into them. This causes extra strain on the tissues and muscles making them weaker every moment. Unhealthy fats ingested through food can clog the channels of the heart causing it to trip at moments.
Yoga techniques provide help to these conditions by reducing the impact of stress on the entire system which benefits the heart. All the stretches comprising physical aspects of Yoga improve blood circulation to regions lying dead due to being subjected to a state of prolonged inertia on account of sedentary lifestyles. Moreover regulating the prana in the body has been known to open up the clogged pathways of the heart as well as the circulatory system.
