Can yoga help you to lose weight? Yes it can! Yoga is a holistic practice and it treats always the root of the problem. There are 3 bodily functions which are crucial to maintain normal weight; a healthy digestive system, a correctly functional thyroid and strong master glands.
Kapalbhati is a powerful breathing exercise. The movement of the abdomen in this breathing exercise is beneficial to the digestive system. All the abdominal organs are massaged; spleen, pancreas, liver, kidneys, bladder, gallbladder ,ovaries and urinary tract . It even helps to get rid of leftovers that are stuck in your intestines. In addition, this breathing technique affects your beauty and shape, Kapalbhati purifies the blood and gives your skin shine. If you want to burn excess belly fat do this exercise regularly. The fire that is created while breathing, burns fat and is connected to the third chakra , the manipura chakra (navel chakra). It also stimulates the chakra energy, increase confidence and well-being.
Any form of thyroid disease has always an serious impact on the well-being of those affected . It may be excessive sweating, hair loss and decreased libid, restlessness, constipation , weight gain , lack of energy , difficulty concentrating , depression and more . Yoga inversions will help you to balance the thyroid and keep it healthy.
Headstand is good for the master glands. Lisa Mitchell describes in her article,
10 Reasons to Do a Headstand Every Day:
“Headstands stimulate and provide refreshed blood to the pituitary and hypothalamus glands. These glands are vital to our wellbeing, and are considered the master glands that regulate all other glands in the body (thyroid, pineal, and adrenals). This includes our sexual hormones, so you can expect better sex with a consistent headstand practice.”
Latest studies have shown that fluoride, although might has a minimal positive effect on the teeth, it has an devastating effect on the master glands, therefore check your toothpaste and eventually replace it with an fluoride free alternative.
