The Beginning

I have to admit that yoga was amazing today. After canceling my second yoga studio membership at Breathe in LG I dedicated my home practice to exploring only what I knew from Annie and my own body exploration over time. 185 more words

研究:瑜珈可降低罹患高血壓風險

根據印度的最新研究,處於「高血壓前期」的患者,只要1天做1小時的瑜珈 ,持之以恒3個月,將有助降低血壓。(路透)

許多中老年人都有高血壓問題。所幸,根據印度的最新研究,處於「高血壓前期」(prehypertension)的患者,只要1天做1小時的瑜珈,持之以恒3個月,將有助降低血壓。

印度研究人員募集60名處於「高血壓前期」的患者,他們平均年齡是54歲,血壓介於正常與高血壓範圍之間。

這些受試者接受各種降血壓的指示,包括溫和的有氧運動、健康的飲食、以及戒除菸癮,其中有半數受測者需上哈達瑜珈(Hatha yoga)上課程。

研究發現,3個月過後,從事瑜珈的受試者的24小時內舒張壓,以及夜間舒張壓,都下降大約4.54毫米汞柱(mmHg),平均動脈壓則是下降大約 4.9毫米汞柱。

主持研究的印度新德里甘家蘭醫院醫師安格利許(Ashutosh Angrish)指出,舒張壓只要上升2毫米汞柱,冠心病和中風的患病風險就會各增加6%和15%。

安格利許表示,瑜珈體位、呼吸和靜坐,都對降低血壓有所助益,但它們各自的效益多大,仍待更多研究證實。
