The Dhanurasana Pose delivers a host of benefits, including reducing IBS flare-ups – as a result of improving circulation, digestion and intestinal function (including easing constipation).
Most people with IBS or IBD have been convinced they that there is little they can do about their condition. The truth is, there are significant things we can do to virtually eliminate IBS.
Yoga is a great way to release stress and relax muscles during an IBS flare up.
Try a reclining abdominal twist pose – holding for 5-10 breaths on each side. This pose will help settle your digestive tract and get things moving properly again.
To help manage IBS, try the Downward Facing Dog yoga pose daily to strengthen your digestive system.
Chronic IBS can be treated by getting at the root of the illness and not simply masking the symptoms.
Relieve IBS symptoms with just 20 min of yoga daily – the deep breathing and stretching activates the parasympathetic nervous system, which keeps your digestive tract in-check.
