It is learnt that almost every third Indian suffers from one or the other kind of Thyroid disorders. Thyroid therefore is one of the main factors which often cause weight gain and hormonal imbalances. Most commonly, this condition is more prevalent in women than men. There are mainly two types of thyroid - Hypothyroidism (caused by not having sufficient thyroid hormones) and Hyperthyroidism (caused by having excessive thyroid hormones). One of the main causes of this disorder is believed to be the inordinate stress most of us take in our daily lives today.

 

Yoga is one of the oldest healing techniques known for its therapeutic properties for controlling diabetes, hypertension, back pains etc along with countless disorders in the human body. The various stretching, twisting, Anchorand compressing yoga asanas massage the thyroid gland and instruct the body to release thyroxin thereby helping in bringing back a healthy metabolism in the body. Yoga and meditation can be a major contributor to thyroid but it can be managed by indulging in peaceful yoga sessions every morning. It’s always good to consult a physician before you start practicing yoga to check which kind of thyroid you are suffering from. However Yoga asanas are comparatively less intense exercises which can help in maintaining good health.
