Yogi Joschi Schwarz has Compiled a List of Yoga Benefits That May Come as a Surprise

New York City, NY (PRWEB) June 12, 2012

Yoga has been practiced for more than 5,000 years and currently 15 million Americans (source: YIAS 3/15/2012) enjoy its health benefits. Traditionally known for maintaining body strength, flexibility and balance as well as providing stress-relief, yoga has numerous additional benefits that may be lesser known.

Joschi Schwarz, owner of Le Male Yoga in New York City, is in an excellent position to compile a list of benefits that dont necessarily come to mind as one thinks about what yoga can do for you. He is a uniquely modern yogi who likes to think outside the box and has helped his students from all around the globe to find holistic solutions to their problems.

Viparita Karani (Legs Up the Wall Pose) – known to be the perfect posture for people who spend long hours on their feet to improve circulation, relief back pain and sore feet, has been found to help stop hair loss.

Stimulation of the vagus nerve through the activation of Jalandhara Bandha (Throat Lock) may stop hiccups. With every exhale, the chin gently drops towards the chest to engage Jalandhara Bandha and a few breaths later, the hiccups are gone.

Simhasana (Lions Pose) is the perfect cure for sad mood. This pose will lighten emotional charge and the facial expressions involved are guaranteed to boost the mood. Students may feel silly, but it is worth a try just for fun.

Stress causes an imbalance in the autonomic nervous system which in return can cause acne. Any calming posture that encourages a response to rest and relax can be helpful in improving skin complexion. Uttanasana (Standing Forward Fold) has a calming effect and helps alleviate this imbalance. Over a period of time stress levels will lower and the acne will disappear.

Vrksasana (Tree Pose) and Virabhadrasana I (Warrior I Pose) are helpful in gaining self-confidence. Standing tall and feeling the leg muscles engaged will help feel assured in the physical self and allows to banish negative thoughts to experience clarity of attention.

One of the most powerful heart openers in yoga is Ustrasana (Camel Pose). After a heartbreak it may be the last thing on a student’s mind to open the heart, but it should be a top priority to release negative emotions and experience an emotional release.

Kegel exercises and Yoga can effectively increase sexual energy naturally without the use of Viagra. Kegel exercises engage Mula Bandha (Root Lock), located in the area between the anus and the genitals. Contracting and releasing Mula Bandha rhythmically in connection with the breath will lead to have more sexual control.

Joschi Schwarz truly enjoys finding help for his students and will continue to do so with his newest venture Le Male Yoga. Even though 15 million Americans practice yoga, the percentage of male practitioners is only at 27.8%. Joschi is on a mission to bring the health benefits of yoga to men.

New Medical Benefits of Watermelon Revealed

Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) July 20, 2012

Known primarily as a staple of American summer picnics for decades, Watermelon has become a traditional, summertime snack to refresh people across the globe. However, recent medical research as well as information posted at Health and Wellness portal BeWellBuzz.com, suggest new health benefits are attributed to several of the enzymes found in this refreshing and sweet summer treat.

The Watermelon has been an important part of the American culture for decades. Discovered as an edible fruit as far back as the mid-10th century AD, and introduced by Native Americans in the mid-1600, Watermelon is a vine-grown fruit that is comprised of 92 percent water, 6 percent sugar and 2 percent of other essential vitamins and enzymes. It is the 2% of the watermelon that has recently been linked to improving the immune system, increasing the male libido as well as potentially reducing the onset of atherosclerosis.

The Philippines Food and Nutrition Research Institute have determined that watermelon is rich in lycopene which is an antioxidant. These substances neutralize the highly reactive free radicals that react with tissues and cause damage. According to researcher AJ Edwards, consumption of watermelon juice increases plasma concentrations of lycopene and beta carotene. The study was carried out on healthy nonsmoking adults over specified periods of time. Beta carotene is the pigment or the coloring agent that is found in Vitamin A, which is a great support to the bodys defense system.

But the most shocking discovery was recently conducted by Dr. Bhimu Patil, the director of Texas A&Ms Fruit and Vegetable Improvement Center which suggest that Watermelon helps boost the libido. “The more we study watermelons, the more we realize just how amazing a fruit it is in providing natural enhancers to the human body,” stated Dr. Patil. “The citrulline-arginine relationship helps heart health, the immune system and may prove to be very helpful for those who suffer from obesity and type 2 diabetes. Arginine boosts nitric oxide, which relaxes blood vessels, the same basic effect that Viagra has, to treat erectile dysfunction and maybe even prevent it.”

Additional research conducted by Dr. Sibu Saha at the University of Kentucky by Dr Sibu Saha, watermelon juice helps to reduce atherosclerosis. A study with conducted with mice given a high cholesterol diet. After a specific period of time, one group was given watermelon juice and the control group was given water. The former group showed a decrease in weight due to loss of fat. This reduction in cholesterol in the plasma is related to the alleviation of atherosclerosis.

With additional health related studies being conducted, the introduction of Watermelon as a super food could be coming soon. For more information about ways Watermelon can help improve health as well as many common ailments, please click the link to the BeWellBuzz.com article posted below.
