Welcome to another HealthNews Video news release brought to you by HealthNews.

In today’s news research suggests that practicing yoga provides very real physical benefits, especially for patients who suffer from atrial fibrillation (AT), one of the most common types of heart arrhythmia.

Symptoms of AF include irregular heartbeat, heart palpitations, extreme fatigue, dizziness, shortness of breath and chest pain. AF can occur in episodes or be a chronic condition. There is no cure for AF, and most treatments focus on relieving symptoms and preventing complications, such as a stroke. Episodes usually last less than 48 hours and stop by themselves, though some last as long as a week.

To conduct the study, researchers recruited 80 people with AF and randomly assigned them to a yoga group and a control group. Patients in the yoga group did one hour of yoga a week for 12 weeks in the hospital with a trained instructor. The program included light movements, deep breathing and meditation.

The researchers found that after the 12-week study, the yoga group had higher mental health scores, lower heart rate and lower blood pressure than the control group. The yoga group also reported better quality of life.

Researchers concluded that the deep breathing exercises created balance in the nervous system, reducing variation in heart rate. The light movements of yoga may have beneficial effects on blood pressure. Yoga also gives AF patients a sense of self-control over their symptoms and helped to reduce stress.

Yoga is beneficial for everyone, not only patients of AF.
