How Yoga May Help Myasthenia Gravis

How Yoga May Help Myasthenia Gravis

Firstly, practice the different types of yoga for myasthenia gravis like Pranayama (breath control) is very effective in the treatment. Abnormalities in breathing are usually the cause in most disorders which is why yoga can be very helpful.

Other forms of yoga for myasthenia gravis are Kundalini yoga and Lyengar yoga which are very useful alternative therapy methods. These forms of yoga also help in dealing with various other neuromuscular disorders. Yoga for myasthenia gravis also includes the practice of meditation which is very beneficial..

Terrible weakness of the body muscles caused by myasthenia gravis which is a highly impairing autoimmune condition can be greatly eased with the help of yoga. Pranayama is highly recommended for the treatment of myasthenia gravis.

Mild physical training can also be of benefit for patients with myasthenia gravis as physical and bodily movement in simple exercises can develop some form of improvement in the overall muscle strength in the patient. A gradual advance to moderate exercise and advanced yoga may also improve and enhance the immunity of the patient. However, meditation alone holds the key in treating myasthenia gravis

In addition to exercise and meditation, you will also need to alter your lifestyle and eating habits in order to treat the condition.  Asparagus is an excellent food and should be a part of your daily diet as some herbalists are of the belief that it contains some components resembling steroids to control myasthenia gravis.  Also, have plenty of sprouts and whole meal bread and yoghurt along with a diet of high fiber foods, fresh fruits and vegetables.  Foods rich in vitamin A, vitamin B6, Vitamin C and Vitamin E are also important nutrients for the treatment of myasthenia gravis.

Finally, take ashwagandha, which is a powerful immunomodulator, as well as a good antioxidant. It improves the strength of the weak muscles associated with myasthenia gravis.
