Hormone yoga helps to avoid symptoms of menopause

With hormone yoga for the symptoms of menopause. Special yoga exercises are designed to stimulate the female glandular and endocrine system and stimulate hormone secretion to prevent the common menopausal problems of hot flashes and sweats, according to the Brazilian inventor of "Hormonal YOGA Therapy", Dinah Rodrigues.

Many menopausal women suffer from severe hot flashes and sweats. These were treated until a few years ago with the so-called hormone replacement therapy, which has now been found in several studies as a significant risk factor for the development of breast cancer (breast cancer) and the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases and heart attacks. Since then, affected women and physicians are increasingly looking for alternatives to the treatment of hot flashes. One possible approach could be the so-called "hormone-yoga" offer, with the help of the typical complaints of menopause should be corrected, reports "TIME Online". However, the effect of "hormone-yoga" is far from scientifically proven, so that the breathing and exercise exercises are not suitable as a replacement for the risky hormone treatments. However, according to the experts, the experts say women can not be put off by the successes attributed to hormone yoga in practice and the fact that no negative health consequences of the exercises are to be expected.

Hormone yoga is designed to stimulate hormone secretion
Many affected menopausal women report a significant relief of their symptoms after the so-called "hormone-yoga". The typical symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes and sweating often go back in the course of breathing and movement exercises, reported "TIME Online". According to Dinah Rodrigues, the energy system of the body is to be influenced by the techniques of hormone-yogas, whereby the energy is to be routed successively into the two ovaries, for example, through certain movement and breathing techniques. The hormone glands are stimulated and the release of hormones increases, which significantly reduces the discomfort of the affected women, according to the theory of the inventor of hormone yoga, born in 1927, Dinah Rodrigues. However, this theory is not yet scientifically proven and although it is known that the so-called hormone replacement therapies or hormone therapies sometimes associated with considerable health risks, these are still the last resort to get the hot flashes and sweating under control, writes "ZEIT Online" , As an accompanying measure, the hormone-yoga, according to experts, but quite well suited. There are no threatening side effects and the successes can not be dismissed out of hand - even if there is no scientific proof.

Reduce breast cancer risk through hormone yoga
Also, according to the doctor and yoga teacher Imogen Dalmann from the Berlin Yoga Center in Schöneberg compared to "TIME Online" the thought of practicing yoga exercises directly influence the estrogen levels "too simple and too mechanistic idea". Nevertheless, with the relatively dynamic exercises of hormone-yoga often success in hot flashes and sweat-induced sleep disorders can be achieved, explained the expert. Reason for hope for many menopausal women who would otherwise rely on risky hormone therapies. In terms of breast cancer risk, women may sometimes kill two birds with one stone with yoga training. Because the German Cancer Research Center had recently announced that by not using hormone replacement therapy during menopause and regular exercise, breast cancer in older women across Germany could be reduced by almost a third. Since hormone yoga seems to be at least partially suitable as a substitute for hormone therapies and at the same time can be considered as physical activity, the risk of breast cancer could possibly be significantly reduced with the help of breathing and movement techniques.

Total package of hormone yoga crucial
The expert from the Berlin Yoga Center, Imogen Dalmann, emphasized, however, that also in hormone yoga there are no specific consequences of exercises that would allow treatment success in all women alike. Also there is "of course no effect without side effect: In individual cases, exercises can also lead to an increase in complaints," added Dalmann. However, the total package of hormone-yoga is quite a promising approach to correcting the typical symptoms of menopausal women, because "through yoga practice, we develop a better understanding of our body, learn to handle it with care, and open the door to a positive experience with ourselves, "was the conclusion of the expert.
