Yoga and Cardiovascular Management is a compilation of the discussions between Swami Satyananda Saraswati and a group of French medical experts, physicians and yoga teachers who shared their views on yoga and the medical management of cardiovascular disease. The discussions shed light on the yogic approach to managing the whole range of heart and vascular diseases in relation to the medical viewpoint. Both yoga and medicine are sciences in their own right and while they complement each other in managing disease, yoga is shown to embrace the whole individual nature in getting to the root and cause of disease.
In addition to cardiovascular diseases, respiratory diseases and cancer are also included, giving the yogic explanation and management techniques with scientific back up. The research data was correlated by an Australian doctor, and the scientific disposition and language make this book ideal for both medical scientists and lay people alike.
