How Ailments Are Connected

It has been scientifically proven that many ailments are related to one another in some way. Of the eight common ailments (arthritis, asthma, constipation, diabetes, hypertension, lumbago, piles/ hemorrhoids, and sciatica), some affect the body (manifested by constipation), while others afflict the mind (manifested by a hypertensive state). For example, high cholesterol levels may lead to diabetes; chronic constipation often causes migraines; and an attack of asthma raises anxiety levels, potentially causing a hypertensive state. Nevertheless, it is also a proven fact that positive attitudes to diet, breath, and exercise have a direct impact on human health. Yoga attempts to supplement this philosophy with a holistic approach to various sattvic diets, ailment specific breathing techniques, and effective stretching.
