Yoga Shows Potential to Ward Off Diseases

Practicing yoga could help protect you against certain diseases, according to a new study. Women who practiced yoga had lower levels of inflammation.

Chronically high levels of inflammation are known to play a role in illnesses such as asthma, cardiovascular disease and depression. Inflammation is known to be increased by stressful situations.

According to Live Science:

“... [W]hen yoga experts were exposed to stress (such as dipping their feet in ice water), they experienced less of an increase in their inflammatory response than yoga novices did.”
