Yoga Works Wonders on Cardiovascular Health
Many in the medical community prescribe yoga to promote cardiovascular health and manage heart conditions.
“If more of my patients practiced yoga, I would have more time to practice yoga.”
So says Dr. Gervasio Lamas, chief of the Columbia University Division of Cardiology at Mount Sinai Medical Center, and he not only prescribes the ancient Hindu practice, but he takes the medicine, too.
“As you move into your 50s you get these funny aches and pains. Yoga chases that away,” he said. “I remember when I was beginning to get up in the morning, different, random, stupid things would hurt. My wife got me to start doing yoga and it all went away.”
