Yoga Practice For Piles
I started yoga practice when I was 16 year old. Now I am 53 year old male and my yoga practice is regular since last 20 years without any break.
I am totally free from common ailments of this age like blood pressure, sugar, acidity, piles etc. I never need yearly health check ups, even when I am over weight since last 5 years. I don’t require any diet control.
I had piles during the age of 35 to 40 years when I had discontinued the yoga practice due to hectic schedules. Thereafter, I restarted my yoga and since then the pile problem is gone. No medication, only Asana and Pranayama(breath exercise) have worked.
It is said that piles are due to constipation and spicy food. But even the people who don’t have constipation and have low spice food habits suffer from piles.
I actually do not know which particular posture has cured my piles, because I perform a set of 12 postures every day. But I observed improvements and permanent relief in my piles, after starting sitting postures like padmasana, siddhasana and vajra asana for extended time i.e. more than 20 minutes every day. Halasana and Gomukhasana are also contributing for cure of piles.
I practice yoga and pranayama(breath exercise)about 20 to 40 minutes daily for , it is always difficult for me to spare this much of time because I don’t wake up in early hours and almost every day I reach at last moments at my office. I just cant help it, if I avoid yoga I can easily keep punctuality for office, but in spite of every day reaching late at office I don’t miss my yoga because it is must for my overall health. Some time when I am in great hurry I practice some necessary yoga postures even in my bath room. During holidays, when I have ample of free time I practice both yoga and pranayama(breath exercise) for at least one hour and even more.
I strongly recommend everyone to include yoga and pranayama(breath exercise) as a daily routine, believe me you can safely and easily avoid costly gym, weights and aerobics. You can get sufficient muscles and good stamina even without weights and aerobics. You can master it yourself through webs, books, which are available on net at free of cost, do not wait for some trainer.
Your body and mind will automatically guide you as how much to exert, where to stop etc. Just have a strong faith in your own body and mind. I myself never took any formal training. I only read books, articles, net searches. By now I have mastered most of the postures and after mastering I can practice the same within 5 minutes when in hurry.
Yoga posture without Pranayama(breath exercise) is beneficial but magical and fast effects are obtained only with both. But if you are a beginner start with postures only (for age 40 and above) and after a practice of postures for about one year include pranayama(breath exercise) without miss. Below 40s may start both posture and pranayama(breath exercise) simultaneously.
