This Ancient Indian Practice Can Soothe
Your Pain

Nagging, chronic pain.

Millions of Australians suffer from it.
And if you’ve ever had a bout with
back, shoulder or joint pain, you
know how miserable it can be.

You don’t go to the gym, because
it hurts and you don’t want to make
the pain worse… you’re not as cheerful
as you normally are… all you can think
about is getting rid of the pain… and it
really starts to affect your quality of life.

Unfortunately, as far as mainstream medicine
goes, there aren’t many “great” options for relief.

Many prescription drugs come with nasty
side effects – a few of which have even
been pulled off the market because they
increased your risk of dying from a heart
attack!

There are over-the-counter pain relievers.
But they can cause havoc on your intestinal
lining, stomach and liver…

And while finding something that lasts and
is safe might seem hopeless, the good
news is, research into alternatives is
promising. The one getting a lot of
fanfare right now?

Yoga.

There’s been a flurry of recent studies
on this ancient Indian practice as being
a viable option to help relieve
everything from back pain to
neck pain… even fibromyalgia!

Take a look:

In one study, published in The Journal
of Pain, German researchers found
Yoga was an effective treatment for
neck pain caused by a variety of factors. [1]

An added benefit the study participants
found? Improved psychological well-being
and quality of life.

In another study, published in the
prestigious Archives of Internal
Medicine, researchers from the
Group Health Research Institute
found that Yoga was effective at
reducing chronic low-back pain and
improving overall function. [2]

And while in these studies Yoga seems
to help relieve only specific kinds of
pain, other studies show it can do far
more for ANY kind of pain.

Researchers at the Oregon Health &
Science University found Yoga to be
effective at reducing pain from
fibromyalgia – a disorder that’s
characterized by chronic, widespread pain.

The study found that Yoga was both
statistically – AND clinically – significant
at reducing pain, fatigue and depression
in fibromyalgia patients. [3]

And finally, in another study presented at
the European League Against Rheumatism,
Yoga was found to provide significant
benefit to rheumatoid arthritis sufferers. [4]

The research is clear: Yoga can help you if
you suffer from pretty much any kind of
pain. And the side benefit is you’ll feel
better overall and feel less stressed.

In addition to being a great pain reliever,
it can also be a great form of exercise,
depending on the kind of Yoga you do.
It can also be challenging and rewarding,
as you see yourself progress from not
being able to do some of the poses,
to mastering them and doing them easily.

So if you do suffer from any kind of
chronic pain, why not give Yoga
classes a try? You’ve got nothing
to lose… and you’ll feel a LOT
better afterwards!
