Research Proves Yoga’s Efficacy As Acid Reflux Treatment
Studies have shown that acid reflux sufferers identify stress as a major contributor to their reflux symptoms. According to a study published in the International Journal of Yoga, practicing yoga, when coupled with acid reflux medication, is helpful in controlling and/or alleviation of symptoms related to digestive diseases, such as acid reflux. The study explored the relationship between yoga and stress and found that yoga works wonders because it may help lower the body’s stress response. Physiological changes in this relaxation response include simultaneous lowering of heart rate, blood pressure, and respiratory rate. All of these changes are signs of reduced physiological stress.
