It’s one of the common problems of the eye disease. It can be the beginning condition some serious eyes diseases like cataracts and glaucoma.

The stiffness and lack of elasticity of the eye muscles tend to make the eye vision low and short-sighted. Except the eye problems like cataract and glaucoma which cause by the bacterial infection, many eye issues are rooted in the malfunctioning of the ocular muscles. Even some yogis have to say that issues like glaucoma can be cured by the yogic practices. One of the most popular and highly sought-after yogis from India called Ramdev Baba has claimed that glaucoma has been cured by the yoga practices and some of the Ayurveda medicines he recommends. He believes that the belief that glaucoma can’t be eradicated was just a thought brought in the mind of people by the medical science. However, he asserts that the practice of yoga and certain Ayurveda treatment glaucoma and even the first state of cataracts also can be eliminated. Mainly the cause of the eye disorder arises from the chronic mental and emotional tension. Yoga can be a great way to alleviate the eye issues as well as improve the eye sights.

According to the physicians the number of diseases of the eye-lid counts more than 94 and numerous diseases for the eyes.  The eye-lids may get inflamed and swollen. The acuity of vision may reduce.

Causes of Eye Problems

The environmental as well as genetics factors have been found to be the cause of myopia. When one’s work is to work watching very close objects for a long time like in computer screen and those who stay indoor for considerable time in a day also are prone to the eye problem of this kind.

The intake of vegetables oils leads to different eye problems. Fast-food and fried in synthetic, adulterated fats and oils increase the eye problems. Weakness of the nervous systems also can cause the poor eyesight.

Excessive masturbation by unmarried people and excessive coitus after marriage would lead to the decay of the eyes. The habit of reading small script for a long time, reading in insufficient light, and reading irregularly spaced or sized letters for long periods. It’s also can be the cause of eye problems if one watches TVs for long period of time. Anemia, excessive smoking, drinking and drug addiction could lead to the damage of the eye sight.

Diabetic patients are prone to eye problems eventually leading to the blindness in the eyes in some cases.

Yoga Therapy for Myopia

 Pure ghee, pure oil, groundnut, coconut oil, gourd juice, wheat juice can be helpful for eyes. Coffee shouldn’t be taken for the better health of the eyes.  As being the position of the eyes above than the heart, the arteries which supply blood don’t become able to get the enough blood for necessary to the eyes. Because of natural way of blood going down, even nerves as well as the parts of the brain get affected.

Shirshasana can be the best remedy for all such issues of eyes. It has such a tremendous value that it can’t be replaced for the treatment of the eyes. We can say that it’s peerless practice for better eyes. It helps to rejuvenate the nerves of the eyes. Shirshasana is good asana for people with short-sight. The time of holding the position is always very essential for proper benefits of the practice. Indeed, it’s always heedful to follow that the asana shouldn’t be tried for long time by the beginners. The time can be increased with plus one system. The time of 20-30 minutes can be completed in two to three time in a day. For the people with issues of heart, lungs, and obesity should always consult with the expert before following the practice.

The practice of eye rotation, direction and various movements helps to strengthen the eyes and its vision. It’s regarded highly important to apply the practices of directed gaze. Especially, yogic science approaches three types of directed gazes; Trataka, Nasagra, Bhrumadhya. In short, trataka is the practice which is performed gazing at the certain point with open and wide eyes without blinking and winging the eyelids until the tear drops from the eyes. Likewise, the practice of looking at the tip of the nose with both eyes is called Nasagra. The third way of gazing requires to look at the point between two eyebrows by raising both eyeballs. It’s also good to roll the eyes in a circle clockwise and anti-clockwise as well as up and down to exercise the eyes. All these directed gazes can be performed in Padmasana and Sukhasana.  For therapeutic purpose, the asanas can be practiced for four times in a day not exceeding more than ten minutes. Palming and blinking can be very helpful for the eyes. For the quality of the eye-sight, the point situated at the bottom of the index and thumb of both hands can be pressed for five minutes in a day.

Jala Neti also is a good practice to perform for the better vision of the eyes as it takes out the infection from throat, sinuses and nasal tract reducing the strain and congestion in the eyes. Drinking water early in the morning immediately after getting up helps one to relax the eyes and heal the strain and stress of the eyes. Eyes can be washed with cold water keeping water inside the mouth for its lightness and freshness. It’s also not advised to read while lying down which brings the problem in the eyes. In the case of children, the practice of taking children for outdoor activities can be one of the practices to be followed for prevention of myopia.

Yoga for Shoulder Pain

Shoulder, which is formed with the anatomical set up of the clavicle, the scapula and the humerus, is attributed as the joint having the most range of motion in the body used continuously throughout the day. The mechanism between the bones of the shoulder builds the shoulder joint. The shoulder joint is put under the ball and socket joint. It affects most of the people ranging from athletes, players, runners, to sedentary workers who work in the computer and deskbound work. The injury on the shoulder can be acute to chronic most of which can be cured by yoga without medical involvement.  Unless it is musculoskeletal injury or problem which needs medical treatment, yoga can be practiced for curing and preventing the shoulder pain. However, yoga should never be taken as the alternative of some severe shoulder issues. some of the preventive methods ( Yoga for Shoulder Pain ) are given in this article.

The shoulder pain has been interconnected to the upper back pain. The pain in upper back mainly comes out of the habit of forward slumping creating the pain in the spine and causing round shoulders.  The habit of slumping rises the situation of shoulder blades going away or sliding away from the spine which results the weakening of the muscles making them hard to protect themselves from the severe strain. When these muscles get tired, they feel sore and hot and tenacious pain along the brink of the shoulders.

In spite of helping the pain to reduce, the shoulder stretching practice even can worsen the situation. Since the shoulder stretches is focused on surface level of the problem, the situation which is interconnected in deeper level. As a matter of fact, the habit or tendency of slumping occurs because of one’s inclination to lean forward more or drooping habit which happens at the upper part of the chest in the shoulder area. The upper tight chest pulls the shoulder forward and down also making the uppers arms rotating inward.  When tension of these part of the body is released, the pain or difficulty may be lessen.

The tightness in the upper part of the chest makes difficulty performing poses like Virabhadrasana I and II as well as Adho Mukha Shvanasana. While performing Sarvangasana, the tightness in the front part of the shoulder joints makes the shoulder turn inwardly and elbows sliding out laterally. Nevertheless, these postures should be practiced to gain the flexibility and proper function of the shoulders.

Cause of Shoulder Pain

Our tendency of leaning forward brings the contraction to the muscles like Pectoralis minor, brachialis, and carachobrachialis. Even though pectoralis minor is small muscles attached to caracoid muscle, it plays vital role in posture alignments. At the movement of reaching forward for something, contraction of the pectoralis minor occurs pulling shoulder blades forward and away from the spine. It also makes the upper back round. In addition to the chronic tightness of the pectoralis minor, the tightness of the muscles in the upper arms worsen the condition of the shoulder making it slumping forward and arms rotating inward. Interestingly, most of the muscles which aggravates the discomfort are situated in the front of the body. However, the pain is felt in our upper back.  The forward-slumping shoulder effects the muscles like rhomboids, the muscles connect shoulder blades to the spine. The chronic pain is experienced along the edge of the shoulder blades when tension in the rhomboid muscles happens whereas the tension takes places in the levator scapulae, the pain is felt at the side of the neck making difficulty in turning the head.

The reduction of the range of the motion in the shoulder is caused by the arthritis, cartilage damage, excessive scar tissues and inflammation build up.

Things to be considered during Yoga for Shoulder Pain

Warming Up is essential

As a prone to shoulder injury or already suffered from shoulder injury, it is advisable to follow the process of warming up before even digging into the practice of yoga asana. The joint exercises such as anti-rheumatic exercises help to bring flexibility and heat the body to move on further for yoga practice. Besides the ant-rheumatic exercises, the recreational acts such playing tennis, badminton and archery can be good practice along with strengthening exercises such as swimming and push-ups.

Suitable Yoga for Shoulder Pain

The choice of yoga style in the broad spectrum of Hatha Yoga needs to be made optimum for your own level and condition of the physical body. The level of strength, flexibility and goal behind the practice of yoga value high in our practice. Slow paced gentle way of yoga could be better for many who are in search of relaxing and freshening state to get rid of the anxiety and stress. On the other, people with the flexibility and strength kept in mind are suggested to join some dynamic and strenuous yoga style. The intensive yoga style also helps to burn the high amount of calorie. All in all, it’s always your intention that should be noted while choosing the style of yoga you want to practice.

Yoga Therapy  for Tonsillitis and Adenoids

Tonsils are situated in the throat on either side of the uvula which are made of fleshy masses. The main function of tonsils is to stop bacteria and virus which tend to enter into the throat and lungs while breathing in. Especially, the immune cells of the tonsils produce protein called antibodies which help to kill the germs.  When any inflammation and swelling occurs in the tonsils, it appears to be the tonsillitis.

Indeed, the subject itself is not the cause of this rather the newly developed style and practice systems have been the cause of many issues and disorders in the different parts of the body. Among many parts of the body, knee has experienced comparatively large amount of difficulty and pain by the practice of yoga. It not only happens because of yoga but also because of many other physical works that we perform. Despite of its cause of pain and injury, yoga always firmly supports and cures the knee pain. By performing certain asanas and following yogic therapy in specific and prescribed manner, the knee pain and injury can be cured and eliminated.

Cause of Knee Injury or knee pain

The main cause of knee injury is related to quadriceps. Quadriceps muscles merge into a single quadriceps tendon just above the knee cap. The tendon attaches and surrounds the knee cap. It goes down below the knee caps which is called patellar ligament. The patellar ligament attaches to the tibia.

Likewise, knee pain may occur due to mild to severe injury to the ligaments, connective tissues, joint cavity, muscles, and knee capsules. Knee join actually is taken as a prone to injury area of the body. Osteoarthritis is found to be major cause of knee pain by many medical studies and surveys.

The most prone to knee pain are recorded to be the people with dynamic or mobile work and action such as runners, sports personnel, body builders and athletes. The most recent list high at risk of knee pain has been joined by the yoga asana practitioners.  By the intensive mobility they have to undergo in the practice and play, they are at high risk of fractures, ligamentous tear and muscular sprain. A person excluding aforementioned categories can also be suffering from knee pain. People who use certain drugs which cause demineralization or inflammation. Furthermore, physiological age also create the risk of knee pain. In addition to these things, menopause and obesity can be the cause of knee pain.

Ways to protect the knee from knee pain

To make the knee stronger and resilient it from injury and weakness, the innermost quadriceps is considered as the most important limb to make the knee healthy. When vastus medialis is used properly, it has greater effect on firming the knee. Therefore, the strengthening exercise to vastus medialis has to be practiced regularly for knee strength. Another important thing to follow is not to make hyperextension of the knee. The practice of asana where knee is bent like Virabhadrasana and standing postures can be applied for the strength of the knee.

Before practicing asanas demanding the stretch of knee, it is always important to stretch the hips first. The stretch and warming up of big joints is necessary to prevent the pressure and exertion on the smaller joints. In this regard, before going to the Padmasana, it is always important to perform some hip stretching asansa like Baddha Konasana and Gomukhasana.

Also the use of props are found to be very beneficial for preventing the knee pain as it helps to apply less stretch and stress in the parts of the body. Therefore, the idea of being prop-friendly also can be a vital practice for knee pain prevention. While performing the poses like Virasana and Trianga Mukhaikpada Paschimottansana, it is recommended to apply the props underneath the buttocks so that knee doesn’t bear much pressure. The soft cloths or towels can be used as a prop underneath the buttocks.  In the name of getting more stretch, it is never advisable to make hyper extension. Yes, it comes with the time and may take few more times but in hurry there is no chance of preparing curry. Everything needs time. Don’t be in haste to overstretch your muscles to save your physical body.

The proper feet alignment and strengthening of the leg muscles requires for the stronger and safer knee. It is highly imperative to maintain the knee alignment as well.
