Dr Swami Shankardevananda
Effects of Yoga on Hypertension is a book about hypertension and how it is one of many psychosomatic diseases which can be treated through a combination of yoga and traditional medicine. This disease is a symbol of other maladies from which mankind currently suffers, and causes seemingly endless suffering. The root cause of all diseases is the same: ignorance of our true nature and lack of awareness of who we really are. This book will help one gain a better understanding of the physical, pranic, mental, and spiritual bodies. Once these are understood, one can begin to kindle the flames of peace and good health—disease can be kept at bay and even prevented from entering the body or mind.
