This Yogic Technique Can Help Over 41 Million People Suffering From Depression To Throw Out Antidepressants!
A recent scientific research has shown that the people who suffer from depression can be successfully treated with a yogic technique known as Kriya. Approximately, 41 million people suffering from depression or anxiety take some kinds of antidepressants. However, this yoga technique which was clinically tested could substitute the medication therapy.
Kriya, also known as (Sudarshan Kriya) is a kind of breathing technique which improves the function of the organs, increases relaxation, helps people to manage stress successfully and control their psycho-physiological conditions.
This technique is defined as breathing manipulation which has positive impact on the immune system, it also regulates the imbalances of the autonomic nervous system and stress disorders. Yoga kriya is a low cost and low risk technique which helps the treatment of depression, anxiety, stress, substance abuse, post traumatic disorders, stress related diseases and rehabilitation of criminal offenders.
The researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine in Pennsylvania have published their latest study in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry. It supports the science concerning the beneficial implementation of the Kriya technique in the treatment of depression. This is extremely important since most of the antidepressants have many side effects and people take them for years or decades.
According to Dr. Mojtabai it is not about the doctors who prescribe more antidepressants, but it is more about people who demand more. He also added that although the feelings of distress and sadness caused by relationship problems or daily life issues never last too long most of the Americans prefer to address these problems medically.
As reported by Anup Sharma who is a MD, PhD in the Psychiatry department at Penn, this low cost therapy which appears to be really effective non-drug method for treating depression is really important since most of the patients do not respond satisfactorily to the medication therapy. In addition he said that Kriya technique enables the patients to experience and incorporate deep meditative state into their lives.
The study included 25 patients suffering from MDD whose condition was not any better despite the antidepressant therapy which they have consumed more than eight weeks.
These patients were randomized to two different groups. The first one was breathing intervention group (Kriya group) and the second one was watilist group (which was offered Kriya after the study).
The first week of the study, patients were supposed to complete a six-session program including kriya yoga, yoga postures, stress education and sitting meditation.The next seven weeks the patients attended Kriya sessions and were supposed to complete a home practice version as well.
The patients who were part of the Kriya group showed extremely great improvement rather than those from the watilist group. The baseline score of HDRS at the beginning of the study was 22.0, which indicates severe depression. The score decreased to incredible 10.27 points on average after the completion of the breathing technique. When it comes to the watilist group there was no improvement at all.
As stated by Vinod Menon, Kriya yoga helps the patients to eliminate toxins beyond cellular level as well.
Nikhil Toke explained the way Kriya yoga helped him to complete and get advanced physics degree.
