Erectile Dysfunction and Yoga
Effect of Yoga on Erectile Dysfunction
Sometimes erectile dysfunction is caused by inexplicable issues within the body. Yoga includes an physical exercising component that might very well help the body come more into balance; more than that however, there are conscious breathing and meditation components that can help to realign more than the physical, but also the mind-body connection as well. Sometimes de-stressing the body (through mindful and active resting like yoga, in addition to physical exertion through exercise) can help correct conditions like erectile dysfunction. Like many therapies however, this change will not happen overnight and will need dedication, patience and belief in the process in order to work.
Side Effects and Warnings
Hatha yoga is generally at least as safe as any other stretching-based exercise program. However there are a few hatha yoga positions, such as the headstand, that can cause injury when they are performed by a person who isn’t yet sufficiently advanced in yoga, or who has certain health problems, such as a detached retina. A properly qualified instructor can help you avoid injury, taking your own individual health status into account.
