Yoga and Health – An Alternative Form of Exercise

Yoga has long been used as an alternative health form of healthy exercise.

Today, a variety of yoga schools have become popular, so if you want to try this technique of healing and preventative alternative health, research them all before signing up for a class.

Yoga can be very helpful if you are suffering from pain or disease, but, as always, discuss this change in your exercise regimen with your doctor before you begin so that you can be sure yoga will work for you.

Iyengar yoga is the yoga of props and slow pose progression.

Correct form is important, and so your instructor will stress this. It is an extremely useful kind of yoga for beginners to try, and people with disabilities or physical restrictions can also use Iyengar yoga.

Props that are used help people overcome back and joint problems. Iyengar yoga, in short, teaches the fundamentals, and so this is an important kind of yoga to use if you are new to yoga.

Power yoga, or Ashtanga yoga, is the most athletic form of yoga and used by those who want a difficult work out. Flexibility, stamina, and strength are all heavily stressed with this form of yoga, and meditation is not as important and usually not taught at all.

A warm temperature is beneficial to this style to lessen muscle strain, so power yoga can also be combined with hot yoga, which is a highly physical workout done in temperatures of 100 degrees or even more in some cases. Breath control is important here, and the progression is swift to maximize athletic benefit.

Ashtanga yoga is not as beneficial for beginners and can be especially difficult for those who are not accustomed to exercising. Hatha yoga can be viewed as the opposite of this, and is a more relaxing kind of workout that is concerned not only with physical well being, but also with mental and spiritual healthiness.

Most types of yoga include aspects of Hatha yoga, and these techniques are important for beginners to learn.

Kundalini yoga is a more spiritual type of yoga exercise, and includes chanting, guided relaxation and meditations, and visualizations. It can be done by anyone of any religious practice, although yoga first began with Eastern religions such as Hinduism and Buddhism.

Kundalini heals the body, emotions, and mind. Posture and breathing is important in this type of yoga, and those overcoming addiction have found Kundalini especially helpful.

Other kinds of yoga may also be beneficial to you and your health. Be sure to choose a routine that is not too easy or, on the other hand, too difficult. Talk with your doctor or a yoga instructor for more information about alternative health.

What’s the Buzz – Apitherapy

New treatment options for old diseases and pains are being explored every day. While you may have heard of some of the major alternative health medicine treatment options, like hypnosis and acupuncture, one you may not have heard about is called apitherapy.

Apitherapy is the use of bee products to cure your pains, prevent serious medical conditions, or make life more comfortable for those suffering from chronic illnesses. Most people do not know about this technique, but you should explore it with your regular doctor to see if it may help you.

Apitherapy has been used in a number of ways to treat hundreds of illnesses, including heart disease, allergies, pneumonia, kidney and liver diseases, arthritis, insomnia, back pain, influenza, sore throat, acne, hair loss, sexual dysfunction, diabetes, lymphoma, stomach ulcers, malaria, schizophrenia, and alcoholism.

As you can see, it treats a very wide variety of medical conditions, ranging from more serious diseases (like cancer), to uncomfortable but less threatening conditions (like hair loss). Your doctor can tell you more about the different diseases apitherapy can be used as an alternative health treatment for.

Bee products can be introduced to your system in a variety of ways. First, you can take them orally. Pollen and honey can be made into capsules, powders, and liquids for your use. You can also be injected with bee products to get them into your system.

Bee venom is especially used in this way. For the past few years, bee products have also been made into creams and ointments to apply to the skin. Eye and nose drops can be made with bee products as well.

Apitherapy can be used (and most often is used) in conjunction with other alternative health medical practices. For example, your massage might include an application of warm honey to the massaged areas or your dentist can use a bee product to rub on your gums, teeth, cheeks, lips, and tongue.

There are some health concerns with apitherapy, especially bee venom injection. It is illegal for anyone other than certified doctors to inject bee venom, so be sure that you are visiting a trained professional. Also, this can react with other medications, especially those for heart conditions, so tell your doctor what other medications you are taking before being injected.

There are also specific doses that you should take to best treat your condition if you choose to pursue oral apitherapy, so speak with your doctor to regulate these doses correctly. He or she can help you use bee production in this unconventional way, and when paired with other alternative health medical treatments, this can be very effective in fighting your pain.
