How Yoga Cured Me of Cough Sore Throat Acidity
I would like to bring out how yoga cured me of cough, sore throat, bad cold, abdominal cramps, gas and acidity.
I have been practicing yoga now for about 7 years. Initially, I was not so regular. But since past 4 years I have become very regular, and have reaped great rewards. I used to get awful cough and flu, with or without fever, almost always followed by a bad throat. It used to take me at least a week to recover fully. And even then, I had to be very careful, specially in winters, to clad myself fully, or I would surely suffer a bout of flu. Then followed antibiotics treatment of at least five days.
Now the severity and frequency of the onset of cold and flu, have decreased greatly. I am much relieved.
I also used to have a lot of gas and acidity problems. I tried a lot of allopathic and even homeopathic medicines, but with temporary success. Now, without any effort, my digestive problems too have been tackled by yoga and Pranayama. I am truly grateful to Yoga for having brought so much change in my physical as well as mental well being.
Thanks Vandana for sharing your experience with yoga. It will be great if you can share exactly which all asanas and pranayama did you practice and any special diet or precautions.
Thus we can surmise that regular practice of yoga over a period of time can cure various diseases. And that we should not worry much about a particular asana for a particular disease but follow a balanced yoga sequence.
