How To Combine Yoga With The Vegan Diet

Source :Articles Base

Research has shown that the vegan diet may perhaps be the healthiest dietetic
choice. Reports are also showing that Yoga as a choice (exclusively or partly) as a choice for exercise has several physical and mental benefits. Imagine how both could work together for health.

Personally, I discovered and converted to the raw lifestyle in an effort to gain the peak of health, endurance and healing that I desired. Well, being radical, I may have jumped into too quick but now I would call myself 80% raw as most days I eat once during weekdays and twice on weekends with fruits in the week evenings and weekend afternoons and PROPERLY cooked veggies on weekend nights.

For Exercise, I practice Yoga 2-3 times a week and do ensure to do the Yoga-esque calisthenics exercise: The Hindu Push-ups almost everyday. All in all, I only use body-weight exercises and try to do something everyday: running, walking, hiking, (I’m always dancing so…)

For someone who previously suffered from excessive acne, asthma and bad breath to someone who appears to be so much younger and healthier now, I owe all of my health-my transformation from distortion to harmony-to a combination of the vegan diet, yoga and its derivative.

Yoga and the raw food diet offer many similarities in the ways they benefit the body. Yoga books describe the same euphoric experiences I have found in the raw food diet. Both purify and heal the body. Both offer powerful therapeutic effects in dealing with physical and psychological problems. Both promote radiant health.

Running, swimming and weight lifting are great for muscle building but do little for connective tissue. It is the flexibility of the joints and of the connective tissues that gives us the feeling of ease and lightness in the body.

Yoga postures and the vegan diet make you more alive. Each practice complements the other, bringing many of the same physical and mental benefits

Needless to say, in this day and age, it’s no more an “hippie” thing to try either or both for that seemingly unattainable health.

It’s working for me, I just turned 25 last week and my boss at work asked me in the men’s room :”Are you even legal (21) yet?” …and he was dead serious.

So, why not empower yourself to improved health and radiance beginning today with Yoga and the vegan diet. I think the man in the mirror would appreciate that.
