Yoga Relieves Fatigue in MS Patients

Six months of yoga significantly reduces fatigue in people with multiple sclerosis. The study found that yoga is as good as a traditional aerobic exercise program in improving measures of fatigue, a common and potentially disabling symptom of MS. Yoga was studied because many people with MS already are using it and reporting benefits. Interestingly, yoga is also widely used as a natural form of pain relief because it is thought to help regulate the brain's pain center and its attention to breathing is calming and reduces tension, which can help with pain management.
