Appropriate food intake and proper digestion are paramount to our well-being. So often, our diets can impede our path to wellness, as we eat foods that are pumped full of pesticides and processed ingredients. A pure and healthy diet, in conjunction with a regular yoga practice, provide the mind and body with positive energy. This combination can set off a chain of health-related benefits: a more efficient metabolism; lowered cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure, increased immunity, improved physical strength, and stronger bones. Medical conditions such as heart disease and diabetes can be avoided through the simple practice of eating healthy and practicing yoga. Great yoga poses to aid digestion include marjaryasana-bitilasana, trikonasana, and balasana.
