Yoga therapy - yoga and How it Works

 There is no doubt that practicing yoga exercises restores the body's balance and makes it maintain its health and vitality. It is considered a type of exercise to strengthen the body, muscles and skin. We find that some women may develop postpartum depression, which is a type of seasonal depression as a result of not being exposed to sunlight. They notice a state of sleep a lot, and an appetite for eating sugars and carbohydrates and not wanting to have intercourse, so exercising in the sunny weather, and yoga exercises by taking deep breaths slowly strengthens the abdominal muscles, and deep breathing increases the blood supply to cells and tissues inside the body, and walking helps in the secretion of endorphins Opiums) in the body that relieve pain, and focus and relaxation during yoga exercises make the brain think in order and prevent confusion in thoughts while stimulating blood circulation and the immune system of the lymphatic system, which gives the person the ability and vitality.


Yoga exercises take from seven to seventy minutes a day and is useful in back pain, anxiety, tension, high pressure, and allergic asthma because it expands the respiratory tract, and for the treatment of back pain, the person stands upright whenever possible to get rid of excruciating pain while practicing the rest of the yoga exercises after that

Yoga means mind control, yoga takes it along with an effective diet.

Yoga is no longer just a sport or a theoretical philosophy that benefits Mind, but it has become an integrated lifestyle and a means of treatment that helps to get rid of psychological and physical diseases. Through yoga exercises, a person can reconcile with himself and others and be happier and more content. With yoga, the individual relieves the pressures of work and throws away the cloak of stress and clouds of anxiety. And with yoga, the person learns about the correct ways of living, including relationships, feelings, housing, food, drink, walking, sleeping and sitting. And otherwise and completely avoids injections, sedatives and hypnotics.


Yoga, which has its roots in eastern religious beliefs, is practiced today as a sport and is popular in modern societies to the effect of its practice in relieving work pressures and accumulated stress.

About 1,000 years ago, a new form of yoga appeared called Hatha Yoga. Ha means the sun, while Tha means the moon, and Hatha means force on the basis of the polarizing force. So, the word hatha yoga means to use the natural force present in the body to achieve what yoga has always wanted to achieve, which is control of the mind. Now that the influence of the mind in all ailments becomes unquestionable, the potential of yoga in treatment is now increasingly appreciated. Therefore, when performing yoga movements, one must not forget the depth required of them.


Therapeutic method:

The patient is asked to do yoga exercises according to his illness and his physical condition and in most cases, this does not require more than several exercises from Asana (ASANA). In some cases, some pranayama exercises are required with asana to get good results. In special cases, there are other exercises that must be done to achieve healing. Focusing and meditation exercises are necessary in certain situations. There is a difference between practicing yoga for a healthy person and practicing it for a sick person.

There is also a difference between the different institutes and sanatoriums that use yoga in treatment, whether in India or abroad. In addition to diet, clinics that use yoga are trying to get sickness thinking right. This includes what we mentioned above regarding illness and its causes, as well as an overview of matters. In these therapies, the patient has a rich philosophical, theoretical and educational material, because yoga is an Eastern philosophy, as mentioned above, and thus it is deep and far from the Western materiality’s that today dominated the West and the East together. The Importance of Meditation for Yogis: Yogis say that life as a whole should be meditation, because we must maintain the ability to calm ourselves at all times, and solve all difficult and simple problems calmly and with certainty.


One writer says that a person who takes yoga as a way of life has made the only necessary decision and that is for yoga to become his way of life. Then there are not many options in the one problem he faces because yogic calm takes his hand to what he should do in that situation. This does not mean that he has reached perfection, but rather he has reached a position that any person must strive to reach. There are books specialized in meditation that you should refer to if you want to learn more and then practice this method, but I will mention here its general framework to explain the ease of that.


The process is as follows: first we learn how to breathe well and naturally, secondly, we re-establish contact with our bodies, and thirdly we learn how to deal with stress and reactions. And the picture painted for meditation in the minds of many is sitting people wearing certain clothes without movement for long hours. This is not true. Meditation can be practiced anywhere and in any position, whether you are sitting on the floor or in a chair. The important thing is to have your back straight. If this is not possible or painful, then it is necessary to get used to it, or for the eye to be a goal for those with disabilities or diseases that prevent it from doing so, perhaps improvement will occur even if it is slow. People believe that they need to go to places designated for holidays or travel in order to achieve the comfort they need, meaning that there is no rest except in such-and-such and such-and-such place, and otherwise, inner calm and serenity cannot be achieved to give the mind and body a chance to catch a breath.


However, this is not true as the evidence that practitioners of yoga and meditation can achieve this anywhere. For example, a yogi reduced the number of his heart beats by contemplating a blue sky with some still clouds, in an American medical institute. This man did not need to go to the seashore or to the foot of a mountain in isolation from people, but he brought this image to his imagination with other supplies, of course, such as breathing. Initially, it does not need more than ten minutes, and then the time can be gradually increased. Half an hour may be sufficient for treatment purposes. Also, it is preferable that the work takes place at a specific time every day and in one place always, because the brain loves routine.


Do you not see that in the first day or two of the month of Ramadan, the fasting person will feel tired and dizzy during the daily eating times, and then he will soon get used to the time of the Ramadan Iftar. The difference here from the mental perception is that in meditation you cannot use an image but rather a sentence. For example (I cried because I was without sandals, except that I met those who do not have two feet), as this sentence not only mentions the suffering of others, which may be more than our own, but also reminds us that life continues despite suffering no matter what.

Meditation has been scientifically tested and the results are truly amazing. For example, they discovered that the meditating person reduced their oxygen need by about 20%. This is while your need for oxygen does not decrease to more than 5% when you sit at home on a bench to rest a little, so what is the difference between the two cases, even though the two are relaxed, and the meditator is somewhat taut? And since we know that the brain is the largest consumer of energy even though its volume is not more than 2% of the body's volume, we know that this difference between the two states is caused by a decrease in the activities of the brain. And the activities of the brain here are the thoughts that come to our mind quickly, and move away and approach as if there are heated discussions in our brains, for which we lose great energy we need, especially the disease from us and those who need all this energy.


And there is an electronic device that checks how relaxed the skin is; so that the skin appears more relaxed once you sit down for a short period of time. And the change of the situation can be known by the sound coming from the device and if you put the poles of the device on your two fingers and feel that you are miserable for a few seconds, you will hear that the sound has become very loud. Then, if you stop that feeling, the sound does not return to what it was before it until after a few minutes. Imagine what happens when you experience various painful sensations if this change in the skin occurs due to an artificial sensation that did not take more than a few seconds. So, whether the anxiety or fear is real or fabricated (as doctors tell the disease, who do not find anything for them according to their examination), the negative impact on the body is certain and continues for a period of time even after the condition resolves. Since the disease was caused by the patient himself, as we explained previously, that is, his living in a manner inconsistent with nature, whether due to his negligence or lack of knowledge, the treatment must be by correcting these errors and by the patient himself?

Yoga teaches and shows the way, and the patient has to follow the correct regimen. Here I like to mention those who mourn their fortune and curse the hour in which they were born and so on. Thoughts that will not help them get out of their ordeal at all but will only add insult to injury, remind them that everything has a reason, and it is inconceivable that this torment, pain and suffering will be useless because God who created man is more generous than tormenting him without any interference on his part (that is, man) or Useless for him or both. Are you not responsible for what happened to you if you live inconsistent with the nature around you? Are you not responsible for what happened to you as you lived in a fast daily life cycle that a steel machine could not handle? Are you not responsible for what happened to you when you spent years of your life or all of your life smoking or drinking alcohol, and God has warned you of the dangers of that?

Are you not responsible for what happened to you while you are in a state of constant envy, hatred for that, hatred for a third, and a desire for revenge from a fourth to other heart diseases if they are out of place? . Even if you do not have a role in all of that, or you were created with a disability, for example, would you not be tempted that this is expiation for your sins and an increase in your grades? Do you not want to use this world, which is only a few days, for the sake of the Hereafter, which is the abode of eternity? Diseases fall off sins, as the leaves of trees fall, as it came in the hadith. Those who look at their disease and other problems in a positive way can solve them better than those who mourn their fortune and enough, because the former can look at their problems with a better state of mind, less nervous tension and optimism about the results, unlike others who do not expect to get a good result, so they are not tired.


Themselves and remain dependent on others. Practical things to practice: First - It is essential that anyone who wants to practice yoga understands the requirements and principles related to practicing it, which are: 1- Time 2- Place 3- Calm 4- Rest 5- Dress 6- Bathing 7- How to perform movements according to your body's ability 8- Act in special situations such as menstruation in women 9- The amount of exercise. Second - food and yoga: Food occupies an important place in yoga because food affects the mental and physical states. In yoga, food is divided into three categories: rajasi, tangible, and stavek.


Al-Rajasi is considered an inappropriate food because it increases weight, fat and a sense of heaviness for a long time after it, and it also arouses emotion. As for the tender, it represents foods that are prepared hot, that is, with a lot of spices and salt, and this type is not suitable as well. This is the preferred and appropriate type of yoga practitioner. And from it you see that it is the type that we referred to in the natural treatment when we talked about food, cooking, and so on. According to yogic principles, there is no ritual, tangible, or savory food in and of itself, and what puts it in one of these three divisions is the method of preparation. Potatoes can be cooked in a way that makes them a tangible food, while the meat can be prepared in a way that makes it a staple food. In yoga, food must contain the following four types to be a complete balanced diet: salad, fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, and raw nuts.


Yoga calls for the same general principles that we mentioned in natural remedies, such as chewing food, not being quick to eat, the amount of food, and drinking enough water during the day. It also calls for abstaining from alcoholic drinks, tea and coffee. Third - hygiene and yoga: Yoga asks the practitioner to: 1- Bathing 2- Opening the pores with massages, whether it is with the hands or a brush or a sponge 3- Do not use any type of soap because some of them contain quantities of harmful chemicals and it clogs the pores.


There are some substances substituted for soap that cannot be mentioned 4- Washing the hair well by washing its roots, because healthy hair is a sign of a healthy person 5- Brushing teeth well, and here the regular toothpaste that contains many harmful substances can be replaced by toothpaste prepared in a healthy way, especially from Miswak, which the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) urged to use 6- Massage using appropriate oils, many of which we mentioned in the chapter on natural treatment Duration of treatment: A single practice of yoga should not exceed 45 minutes in winter. 3 minutes in the summer. It should not be exercised more than once in a 24-hour period. Regular exercise for 15 minutes is sufficient to maintain health.


As for the entire duration of treatment, only the disease, type and history. They found in the Indian Pettna Yoga Institute that most patients did not require more than two months, but in difficult or years-old cases, treatment required 4-5 months or more. The abilities of yoga: We mentioned above that most pathological conditions do not take more than two months to achieve a cure, while chronic cases need more than that. And this success was in various cases such as diabetes, arthritis, asthma, stomach and intestinal problems, stress and others.


These are cases that current medicine cannot cure, if it is able to alleviate the suffering in some of them at all. The credit for these results is due to the ability of yoga to control the mind, or less empowerment of the patient so that he can use mental power to control the activities of the body and thus disease. The show performed by Swami Rama in America, which we mentioned before, was not just a demonstration to prove the ability of the practitioner of yoga to control his heart rhythm, but rather the ability of yoga to control many conditions that have to do with the heart and blood circulation, such as high blood pressure, for example. And a yoga practitioner can control his body temperature so that it drops by 15 degrees Celsius in less than an hour of time.


Not only that, but it does so for the body as a whole or for certain parts of it !! The mind was the strong ruler here. All he had was that he sat in a calm state of mind while gently but consistently focused on the issue of body temperature and how much he wanted it to be. This method is now used with cancer by rolling medicine after it was found to be more successful than chemical drugs. Yoga Cases treated with yoga: 1- A middle-aged woman with problems in one of her legs.


 The surgery did not succeed in removing these problems, and then the specialist told her that she must wear the piece of iron that holds the leg (and which is used with paralyzed people, for example) for the remainder of her life. But she participated in a local yoga group, and she attended once a week and there they taught her how to properly breathe and how to fight the problem by developing her energy through breathing. She began with the daily practice, visualizing in her mind how her leg was turning toward healing while she was breathing calmly and harmoniously.


After a while, she found that she no longer needed the iron piece. After another period, it returned to its normal state. As for the specialist doctor, he did not bother to research the matter when I went to him while she was walking steadily on her legs, and all he said (you are one of the lucky few) !! . 2- Howard, I was a yoga specialist, had an accident while he was treating a severely disabled patient. A bone in one of his cheeks was broken, and this is confirmed by an x-ray. But they rejected the operation suggested by the doctor.

Two days later, he decided to have a test he would normally try on his disabled patients, a test that checks the electrophoresis of body tissue fluids. And this reception is affected by several factors, the most important of which is a person's health condition. After examination, it was found that all parts of his body were functioning normally except for the broken bone. After recording this device reading, he took a deep breath for 5 minutes using his rib cage with a mental imaging of energy flowing in his cheek. Then he took a second reading, and it turned out that this is exactly what happened, meaning that energy flowed into his cheek. Ten days later, the fracture was completely healed, and there was no longer a problem.


And this, even if it was not a major accident, unless you were 61 years old, and this is what slows the recovery, as any doctor will tell you. Bone repair is an electrical process in the body, and what he's done here is using breathing to stimulate the natural healing process. 3- Lol Yameen Shammas, a woman of Lebanese origin, settled in Britain more than twenty years ago, after her separation from her husband, the Lebanese doctor, and is currently practicing a new and advanced treatment for back pain in London called (Phoenix Rising) "Phoenix Rising". Psychotherapy at the same time. And her clinic has become a destination for many patients who suffer from this disease called "the disease of the era." She is one of four people who practice this treatment as professionals in Britain, although it is a widespread treatment in the United States of America, and it was founded and published by Australian yoga teacher Michael Lee. Lee had been certain, through his personal tests, that staying in one of the yoga sites for a long time and stretching the muscles of the body to the utmost limits would lead a person to awareness and awareness that he rarely reached. And if this situation continues under the supervision of a professional in this treatment, the body will send messages to the mind, which will facilitate and contribute to the process of containing pain, especially back pain. And Phoenix Rising technology is very suitable for people who lead a noisy and stressful life in the cities of the world where living in it requires great physical and mental effort.


Yameen Shammas said in an interview conducted by a well-known British newspaper with her: “When a person works 10 hours a day or more in strenuous work, he will suffer problems in his body and psychological life, and he must find ways to face these problems. "Phoenix Rising" is one of these methods that provides a close connection between the mind and the body, and contributes to achieving a radical change in human behavior (physical and moral). Lulu Yammine Shammas is 50 years old, although she still maintains the beauty and grace that suggests that she is younger than this age. She had discovered the sport of "yoga" after she had three children and injured her in the back due to her constant exercise. Eight years ago, I trained to become a teacher in a special type of yoga called “Sivananda Yoga Vedanta,” which is very much associated with the spiritual. From there, she switched to the technique of "Phoenix Rising" and began to practice it as a profession, and it has a large number of clients, especially women with back pain of various nationalities.


During the treatment process, the patient is placed in a yoga position and then his muscles are stretched as much as possible. This procedure is called (The Edge). He is asked to express what he feels during the stretching and breathing process, from time to time, in the manner requested by the specialist. Yameen Shammas asserts that this treatment not only cures back pain, but also contributes to confronting depression, depression and neuropsychiatric diseases. And every patient or patient must fill out a form about his personal life and answer some questions that are asked to him before choosing the appropriate method of treatment and before choosing the physical positions to be in before stretching, breathing and diving into the psychological depths.


Yameem Shamas switches positions and adds pads, here and there, during the treatment, and at the same time she poses questions. After undergoing a session with her, the patient felt, according to what one of the women who did, indicated that his body had undergone a "tuning" process. After the treatment period, Yameen Shammas offers her customers a cup of jasmine tea, which she bought specially from Paris, which brings more satisfaction. 4- Margaret Hills, who suffered from arthritis for 16 years and then God healed her by following a diet that she gave after a long search, says that she recovered from the disease after he had held her for many years, says that she believes that God wanted to torment all these years in order to search About treatment, you find it, and then you begin to treat the disease and relieve them (as a clinic for arthritis and rheumatism has opened in central England).


 Yoga exercises: get rid of your psychological stress. Many people suffer from work stress, daily problems, and a feeling of fatigue, fatigue, boredom, and nervousness.

A natural remedy for stress and anxiety.


It is the best preventive treatment that works on the compatibility of the body, mind and feelings, improves the general condition of the body and its vitality, and provides active calm and mental clarity. Yoga requires mental activity and thus helps with concentration and mental clarity. It helps to integrate the body and promotes good performance, as it focuses on the central stability of the body and back, and resolves coordination and balance. It improves joint mobility, flexibility and the range of movement of the body, which helps in athletic performance and carrying out daily activities easily.


Helps restore regular physical shape. There is often one side of the body that is weaker or more flexible than the other. This imbalance can lead to injury, pain and discomfort. Yoga helps regulate the secretion of hormones by the various glands and helps regulate metabolism. Recent studies in yoga: A report published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that practicing yoga and meditation helps relieve pain. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania College of Medicine conducted their study on 42 people with carpal tunnel syndrome, and they were divided into three groups, the first learned meditation and yoga exercises, the second received a regular wrist splint, and the third was left untreated, then pain scores were measured for each group after Eight weeks, and after a number of neurological examinations, it was found that yoga and meditation exercises helped reduce pain and discomfort significantly.


At the end of the study, the researchers noted that people in the yoga group reported less pain and stronger hand and wrist movements compared to individuals in the other groups.


Now we're asking this question: What does yoga mean? It means special training that includes body and soul. A person should then stop his thought or mental activity and engage in a kind of deep meditation. Rather, you should stop your subconscious, into your unconscious mental activity if possible. Classical yoga includes eight things:

·         Deterrence of the self, meaning you should not harm anyone, tell the truth and not steal, forgive the desires, and be honest and elevated.

·         The regulations that must be followed: cleanliness, contentment, asceticism, study and devotion to the worship of the Creator.

·         Physical postures: They are certain bodily positions or postures that should be taken while practicing yoga. And all are done sitting.

·         Control of respiration: It results in direct physiological or organic effects. But these effects can lead to psychological or psychological repercussions.

·         Perception: It is the neutralization of the activities related to the senses as well as the neutralization of the driving forces. You should return it to your inner self, so that you are free from inner turmoil.

·         Fixation of interest in a certain thing without others and intense focus on it alone.

·         Launch reflections on this thing.

·         The focus of the psychological structure on this thing in a continuous way.
