Benefits of Pratyahara

Introduction

Benefits of PratyaharaYoga is a science of spiritual practices for inner growth. Classical yoga system incorporates eight limbs. ‘Pranayama’, the expansion and mastery of vital energy, is the fourth limb, following ‘Asana’ (a steady seated posture) and preceding ‘Pratyahara’ (withdrawal of the senses.)

‘Pratyahara’ is probably the least known amongst Astanga yoga practices. Have you ever attainded a class in ‘Pratyahara’? Have you ever seen a book on ‘Pratyahara’? Do you perform ‘Pratyahara’ as part of your yogic practices? Yet ! unless we understand Paratyahara, we are missing an integral aspect of Astanga yoga without which the system cannot work. As the fifth of the eight limbs, Pratyahara occupies a central place. Some yogis considered it as Bahiranga yoga and other as Antaranga yoga. Both classifications are correct, for Pratyahara as the key between the external and internal aspects of yoga sadhana. It shows us how to move from one to the other.

It is not possible to jump directly from ‘Asana’ to ‘Dharana’, ‘Dhyana’ and ‘Samadhi’. So, to make this transition, the breath and senses, which link the body and mind, must be brought under control and trained properly. This is where ‘Pranayama’ and ‘Pratyahara’ have their role to play. Through Pranama, we control our vital energy and impulses, while with Pratyahara we gain mastery over the senses-both are prerequisites to a successful Meditation.

Nature Cure for PCOS

Causes, Completications and Natural Management

Nature Cure for PCOSPolycystic Ovary Syndrome or PCOS is one of the most common endocrine (hormone) disorder. It is a complex disorder that begins during puberty and affects reproductive-age women and is also known as ‘Stein-Leventhal’ syndrome or ‘Functional Ovarian Hyper Androgenism; PCOS is characterized in most but not all cases by multiple small cysts on the ovaries caused by a hormonal imbalance as well as several additional symptoms including irregular menstrual cycles, infertility, weight-gain, and pre-diabetes status. It is related primarily to dysfunction of the metabolic and endocrine systems. With an increasing shift of lifestyle, PCOS is now one of the most common (15-20%) endocrine disorders in women of childbearing age. Although it is a major cause of infertility, its etiology remains unknown and treatment difficult.

What is PCOS?

The European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) define PCOS as the presence of any two of the following criteria:

1.    Polycystic ovaries (either 12 or more follicles measuring 2-9 mm in diameter, or increased overian volume (> 10 cm3) on ultrasound.

2.    Oligomenorrheoa /anovulation (reduced periods/failure to release eggs).

3.    Clinical or biochemical evidence of hyperandrogenism (excessive male hormone.)

Causes and Complications

The actual cause of PCOS is unknown but there are many factors that contribute to PCOS. There is a tendency for polycystic ovary syndrome to be more common in women who have a close relative with the similar condition. The fact that the condition can run in families suggests that there is a genetic component to the disease. Other causes that are thought to be linked with PCOS are metabolic disorders (insulin resistance), hyperandrogenism (elevated levels of the male sex hormones), menstrual irregularities and infertility.

Simple Strategies to lose weightTips to Lose Weight

According to a World Health Organization report, one billion adults worldwide are overweight and three million adults are considered to be clinically obese. To deal with this international epidemic of obesity, most of the weight-loss programs are prepared on three key principles:

1.    Eat Fewer Calories

The most fundamental principle in weight management is to restrict the amount of calories that you eat. Eating fewer calories than you expend daily, arrests creeping obesity and results in stable loss of weight. One important tool to do this is to maintain a diet diary of what you eat or drink.

Though it is important to avoid overeating, you must avoid the other extreme of starving yourself.
