The applications of yoga therapy range anywhere from maintaining health to recovering from illnesses - in some cases, even those ailments considered incurable. The first stage of healing involves the movement of vital forces in the system, as every illness involves a certain level of energy blockage. By promoting the flow of prana, or vital force, yoga confronts those blockages, restoring health to the body. Common applications for yoga therapy also serve structural problems such as spinal misalignments of joint function. Deeper applications may even serve intractable problems such as AIDS and cancer.
By combining different techniques such as stretching, body cleansing, message or alterations of the circulatory patterns, yoga promotes specific changes in muscles, joints and organs, maintaining the vital functions of the body. On a psychological level, the introspection promoted by yoga is essential to the self-knowledge process that fuels psychic transformation. The different relaxation techniques allow the troubled mind to calm and decrease its activity while promoting stability.
The list of diseases cured by yoga therapy is huge. The treatment methods used in yoga therapy differ from pharmaceutical methods, as yoga therapy brings the whole body in balance and works with the root cause of the problem. Tackling the problem just by using medicine to relieve temporary syndromes will not cure the disease itself; it will only give the illusion of wellbeing. At the same time, this retreat will teach you yoga therapy techniques which you can use back home to keep yourself healthy, using your own resources rather than resorting to pharmacies.
Yoga therapy healing procedures include the deep purification of the body, as toxins cause a wide range of diseases and low immunity. For complex cleansing of the body, the retreat focuses on the following purification techniques:
Cancer appears only in an acidic environment. Alkaline water alone can stop the effects of an acidic diet, purifying the toxins and preventing the appearance of cancer cells and other diseases.
The reason major health problems occur is intoxication. We get toxins from food and from poisons manufactured within the body which come from putrefaction and the fermentation (zymosis) of food in the intestines. Poorly chosen food and destroyed fibers cannot move smoothly within the intestines and create blockages and fecalomas that get stuck inside the body and their size increases as the years go by, poisoning the body from the inside. By the age of 50, one might have from 5 to 10 kilograms of fecalomas and this of course has a major effect on health.
As per medical researches, around 95% of people have parasites. Parasites use a lot of nutrients, minerals, vitamins and microelements and at the same time they poison the body with their waste products. Parasites decrease the efficiency of the immune system, slowing down the metabolism and use the body as a source of food. The weight of parasites in the body can round up to 1,5 - 2 kilograms and they can lead to a large number of health issues.
Human blood pH should be slightly alkaline. An acidic pH can occur as the result of an acid-forming diet, which leads to tophus, stones in organs and an inefficient functioning of cells and organs, as they can perform their functions properly only in an alkaline environment.
Many health problems such as allergy, rhinitis, diabetes, arthritis, arthrosis, obesity, early aging process start from an acidic diet. Common symptoms of parasite presence are: constipation, low energy, low immunity, high arterial pressure, head spinning, short temper, sudden weight loss or gain, diarrhea, a starving sensation, under eye circles, bad breath; children can experience mental and physical developmental disorders, sexual maturation problems and memory problems.
The treatment stages described above embrace a wide range of health problems, bringing in balance all the areas of the body. Following the treatment plan consistently, you will be completely purified and your body will be healed in its entirety.
Along with deep cleansing procedures, you will be provided with a program of techniques based on your individual characteristics and reactions on treatments. The retreat uses only natural ingredients for the treatment plan and you will be taught to use the healing techniques for further practice back home. To be able to keep the results and further develop your health and beauty, you will need to organize your lifestyle back home accordingly, thus you will be supported in developing self-discipline, motivation and establishing a solid yoga practice.
Your complete intention to change is the most important step in your journey. The professionals at the retreat are happy to teach and help you implement the ancient yoga transformative knowledge and practice, but you need to follow your initial intention to improve with strength and dedication.
