Sometimes we are going about our normal life and all of a sudden a cold sneaks its ugly head upon us. I know you've had that happen before. Unfortunately, We all Have!

Hold up - Wait a Minute! Let's get this straight! That is the reason why we should prepare our bodies to help fight against colds and diseases before that starts to happen.  

We should start taking some preventive care, like Yoga to boost our immune system.  If our immune system is strong, it helps to fight against colds and diseases. 


According to The Art Of Living,

When sick, antibiotics and other medicine can help the body recover from disease. However, what medicine fails to do is improve the body’s immune system. This is where yoga comes to the rescue! Yoga is one of the most effective and time-tested natural immunity boosters that can lead to a healthy, sickness-free body. Yoga lowers stress hormones and strengthens the nervous system while also stimulating the lymphatic system, which removes toxins from the body. Yoga calms the mind and can contribute to deeper, regulated sleep, which is crucial for wellness; sleep is one of the most important factors in healing and maintaining a healthy immune system.

Here are some Yoga poses for immunity.

Some yoga practices that are known to reduce glucose levels associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus:

  • Asanas
