Major cause of death across the world is coronary artery disease. Its severity depends on various risk factors like hypertension, diabetes, smoking, dyslipidemia, obesity, stress and others.
Randomized clinical study done in last 3 years duration . 750 patients enrolled in this study who had been diagnosed previously as coronary heart disease. In group 1 aerobic exercise (n=225) and in group 2 Indian specific yoga for heart disease and diabesity(n=240) and in group 3 Indian specific yoga plus aerobic exercise (n=285). We arranged three sessions of yoga and aerobic exercise each of 6 months duration.
We found almost similar results in group 1 and group 2 as per reduction of blood pressure, lipid profile, weight and waist circumference with improved angina(p<0.05). In group 3 there was around 2 times blood pressure, body mass index and cholesterol reduction as compared to individual groups(p<0.04). There was also a significant improvement of left ventricle function, improved 6 min walk or exercise capacity, heart rate recovery, class of dyspnea /angina(p<0.05, 0.003) was seen in group 3.
Combined Indian yoga and aerobic training give better control of coronary risk factors.
