Yoga works wonders! To get rid of a sore throat for 3 days

Йога от ангины

Angina (from Latin ango - squeeze, soul) - an acute infectious disease with a predominant lesion of the palatine tonsils. The causative agent of angina is most often streptococcus. It is one of the most common diseases, especially in childhood and young age. The emergence of angina contributes to the cooling of the body, as well as the presence of chronic inflammation of the tonsillar tonsillitis.

Yoga (Sanskrit, literally - communication, unity, concentration, effort) in the most general sense is the teaching and method of controlling the human psyche and psychophysiology in order to achieve higher mental states.

Many people are susceptible to colds. You can deal with them in different ways. As evidenced by yoga, the cold is very afraid of lions. More precisely - the lion's pose. According to medieval texts on Hatha Yoga, such as "Hatha Yoga Pradipika," Simhasana, that is, the "lion's pose," refers to the four most important of the 84 Asanas (exercises, body positions, postures) that Shiva gave.
