Yoga For Anxiety Research Proves Yoga Really Works to Heal from Anxiety & Sleep Issues!
Yoga has origins in Ancient India and is more than just gymnastics or poses-it’s also about controlled breathing called pranayama, deep relaxation and meditation and something known as yoga nidra, which is basically the original hypnotherapy. It also boosts how well your immune cells function and increases how well your brain is able to get to sleep and stay asleep. OK wow!!  So yoga is actually MEDICINE!!!!!  is what we are saying.  And as an integrative medicine doc that is music to my ears!!  I have a pretty serious practice, get up every morning to do at least a half hour, usually an hour of yoga and then usually another short session in the evenings after work because I’m total proof that it works, makes you look and feel younger without spending any money on creams, scary needles or fancy supplements!


In the sleep studies, people with severe sleep problems who did yoga for 6 months were sleeping well at the end of the study, had more energy during the day, no longer felt depressed and felt over just better.  Often these are people who have tried the all the pills that doctors usually give for sleep problems with little improvement or intolerable side effects! So My message to you is this: As a doctor and a yogi, one of the best things you can do to help with sleep problems, stress, feeling tired or feeling anxious is to start making an appointment with yourself for 20 minutes each morning to do yoga.
To get started at home, please check out our full length Yoga for Beginners video today and leave me your questions and comments so you can get the most out of the video and start feeling amazing!! Whenever I have practiced yoga in my life, I have been more connected, energised and positive than ever before.
