What is High Blood pressure and why certain Yoga posture is not recommended if having HBP?
Blood pressure is the measurement of the force of the blood on the arteries as the heart pushes the blood through the body. High Blood pressure is also called “hypertension.”
In a normal adult, a blood pressure close to 120/80 mm Hg is considered to be normal. When blood pressure stays high, greater than or equal to 140/90 mmHg, then it is considered high blood pressure. High blood pressure increases the risk for heart disease and stroke, heart failure or kidney failure.
According to recent estimates, nearly one in three U.S. adults has high blood pressure. In fact, many people have high blood pressure for years without knowing it and this is the reason it is often called the “silent killer.
“The only way to tell if you have high blood pressure is to have your blood pressure checked.
Inverted Yoga postures like Headstand and shoulder stand increases the pressure on heart and hence not recommended for those who are already having high blood pressure.

Yoga, the ancient Indian therapy for exercise and meditation of the mind and the body, has for long been known to help people cope against ailments.And now, the age old therapy is providing healing touch to patients suffering from breast cancer by reducing pain and trauma.
The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Centre and the Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana, have announced a research collaboration to scientifically validate the belief that mind-body interventions have a beneficial impact on the health of cancer patients. The University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Centre is the world’s largest cancer hospital and Research Centre
Dr HR Nagendra, the President of “Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana SamsthanaSamsthana” has said that the research on breast cancer patients through specially developed Yoga technique helped control their agony, adding that the MD Anderson Centre has accepted the theory.
“Yoga is an effective agent and it can bring a lot of improvement for the patients. For the last 25 years we have been doing extensive research, findings of which are published in nearly 75 research papers in the top reading journals. What we have been able to show is that yoga is effective by systematic protocols, which are acceptable by international standards. The MD Anderson Centre has also come forward and for the first time seen how yoga can be useful for cancer patients. They are very much impressed,” said Dr HR Nagendra, President, Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana.
The ten-year research at Bangalore Institute of Oncology on Yoga therapy on more than 400 breast cancer patients has given a positive output and it is based on this research, that the MD Anderson Centre has accepted Yoga as a therapy for relieving pain in breast cancer patients.
Researchers from both institutions are currently studying the effects of yoga on breast cancer patients undergoing radiation treatments.They are also exploring whether participating in a yoga programme diminishes patients’ fatigue and sleep disturbances, while improving the overall quality of life, mental health, stress hormone levels, and aspects of immune function.
Presently, the randomised-controlled trial is aimed at monitoring the patients’ physiological responses to yoga as determined from blood and saliva samples, lung function tests and goniometric (joint motion) measurements.
