Our body has an immense inherent capacity to adapt to the changing environment. This can be wisely exploited and directed towards putting up an effective defense against physical and mental diseases. Drug therapy is directed mainly towards eradicating particular causative factors. Yogic therapy, on the other hand, believes in making the body healthy by putting up an effective resistance against the disease processes itself, by correcting imbalances.
Chronic functional disorders, particularly, require the second type of treatment. A chronic disease signifies an inability on the part of the body to cope with the disturbing factors, or some internal maladjustment, due to inefficiency and lack of cooperation between the various organs of the body.
Efficiency of organs and cooperation between them has to be achieved by training the organ and reestablishing proper coordination and harmony between the various parts of the body. Chronic psycho physiological disturbances that affect the conditions of the muscles and viscera could be set right through such processes only. The age-old yogic practices provide ideal methods for bringing about such coordination and balance between the various functions of the body and the mind. Hence the Yogic methods have a special place in the treatment of functional disorders.
An all-around and complete Yogic therapy consists of the following four steps:
Cultivation of correct psychological attitude.
Reconditioning of neuromuscular and neuro-grandular systems, in fact of the whole body, to enable it to withstand greater stresses and strains of life.
Encouraging the various natural eliminative processes of the body Work efficiently, resorting, if necessary, to special lavages and baths, using air and water for the purpose; and
Regulation of diet and day-to-day behavior.
