A prominent Indian-American cardiologist will present a new method at the upcoming Indian Science Congress (ISC) in Bengaluru to test the effectiveness of yoga as an intervention for treating many diseases.

Indranill Basu Ray, a cardiac electrophysiologist at the Veterans Hospital in Memphis, US, will present the “new protocol” at the 107th ISC to be held from January 3-7.

“Despite understanding the molecular mechanism, large trials of yoga using the standard protocol called RCT (Randomised Control Trials) has not shown as much promise as expected,” said Ray.

“We proved tobacco was toxic not by doing clinical trials, but by following people who smoke and showing they develop a particular type of lung cancer -- it would have been almost impossible to prove this using an RCT other than being phenomenally costly,” he said.

Ray claimed that “same is true for yoga, as a person who has a disease like hypertension that is due to chronic adaptation to stress may be treated with a yoga protocol to eliminate the disease.” With advanced molecular biology and commercially available wearable devices, the adaptive stress-response can be measured with yoga by monitoring hormone levels, a well-established biomarker of stress, Kolkata-born Ray said.

This, he claimed, may also be done through complementary physiological signals such as electrodermal activity and heart rate variability, proxies for the arousal of the sympathetic nervous system.

“It is the chronic arousal of this system due to adaptation to chronic stress that causes hypertension,” Ray added.

Dem people dat bright bad Bhai. Bharat Mata Ki Jai!!!

Yoga has been around for ages. I was involved in Transcendental Meditation (TM) in Guyana. Meditation can bring out the healing power from your inner self to counter stress, hungriness, illness, etc. I believe this new method by Dr. Basu Ray may find the result to be a positive intervention to cure many diseases. I regret stopping short in my younger days but this gives me more courage to continue (Yoga) at an older age. Anything for health is worth a million dollars.  

Nehru, you should get involved in Yoga. Not the four feet in bed Yoga.

And you can also follow Morarji Desai formulation and drink your own pee!!😀

The tap water that you drink is worse than pee. When you look at the facts of water circulation before it gets to your cup it might turn your mind from drinking water again. Pee is being studied to use in space if not already used as drinkable-pee. Pee is used for making beers. A brewery asks beer drinkers to donate their fee to be refined and go back into the bottles the men drink from. When your hear wife tells you that you went and drink piss, believe it.

How is it when we drink a pint  we pee a gallon?

After the first pint you are drunk, so you stop counting. When you go pee , you thing you are peeing a gallon.

 Normally, our body retains water, you tend to pass less than you consume.
