Can Yoga Really Cure Cancer?


Cancer is a dangerous disease, which gets expressed in any part of the body in the form of coagulated mass of cells, which is called tumor. By the time one comes to know about it, it is already late. Because initial stages rarely get detected and when the things become clear, it gets spread largely in the body.

As soon as, it gets diagnosed, patient should immediately switch over to Naturopathy treatment. Yoga alone cannot cure cancer, but yes if combined with Naturopathy, then a patient can enhance his life and slowly will come back to normal.

Though Yoga Guru Ramdev claimed that regular practice of seven Pranayama popularized by him had successfully cured any type of cancer within 6 to 9 months along with the consumption of wheat grass juice and eating neem and Tulsi leaves.

A Delhi based Yoga therapist of South Delhi(Subhash Sharma, who spent 19 years in a gurukul in Rajasthan and is also a post-graduate from the Kasturba Medical College, Manipal) strongly recommends that Yoga can cure any type of cancer but only the condition was that, an experienced practitioner should be hired, not just mass teaching of Yoga.

It is very true that if Yoga is complimented with Naturopathy then the patient shows a quick recovery provided the patient has 100% faith in it.
