Abstract

A REVIEW STUDY ON THE EFFECT OF SARVANGASANA ON HYPOTHYROIDISM

*Vineeta Waldia

ABSTRACT

Hypothyroidism refers to any state in which a person's thyroid hormone production is below normal. The symptoms include increased cholesterol levels, depression, fatigue, hair loss, memory loss, dry, rough skin and constipation. As the disease becomes more severe, there may be puffiness around the eyes, a slowing of the heart rate, a drop in body temperature, and heart failure. In its most profound form, severe hypothyroidism may lead to a life-threatening coma (myxedema coma). The thyroid itself is regulated by another gland that is located in the brain, called the pituitary. In turn, the pituitary is regulated in part by the thyroid (via a "feedback" effect of thyroid hormone on the pituitary gland) and by another gland called the hypothalamus. Yoga has a wholesome effect on both body and mind. Asanas or physical postures of the body act at various anatomical levels and help prevent or minimize the risk of various metabolic disorders. As in case of hypothyroidism sarvangasana when practiced regularly and in a proper way is the ideal asana for most thyroid gland problems. If a person is overactive it tends to reduce secretion and if underactive tends to release more thyroid hormones. The main reason being the blood circulation is mainly centered towards the thyroid gland and the brain.

Keywords: Hypothyroidism, yoga, asana, sarvangasana.
