You should consult a Yoga teacher having full medical knowledge as well as consult a doctor before starting experimentation with Yoga science or healing of diseases.

There is a big center in northern India at Udhampur for training of officers of army One of the senior army officer, who works hours together on typing machine was suffering from cervical spondylosis. One overwise man who considered himself an expert, advised that Yoga-abhyas could help the typist officer. This much is a fact, but further advice he gave was such which would have contrary effect. Unfortu­nately he demonstrated exercises and said Shirsasana and Sarvangasana are the best among all the Asanas; for atleast 35 years, I regularly practise these Asanas. Just look at how healthy I am ! This was also a correct information but by advising that army officer who was a patient of cervical spondylosis to practise Sarvangasana and Shirsasana, was like advising to allow 4 cups of ice cream to a highly diabetic. Ultimately what was not desired just happened. This per­sonal assistant of army officer suffered much. Thus, it is not proper to carry out Yoga exercises in the manner recom­mended by quacks. Practise Yoga exercises only under advice and guidance of one who has knowledge of Yoga and medical science.

Main essential aspect about Yoga treatment is medical aid, care in food habits and Yoga exercises. If these three are simultaneously attended, then only, treatment can be beneficial.

Yaugic treatment helps in two stages:

When illness is in the primary stage.

When a sick person is recuperating, Yoga-abhyas results in astonishing help, when carried out combined with patience and prayers.
