Yogic Exercise, Pranayama, Contraction, Relaxation, Nutrition, Excretion


Health is an important asset of the human life. It depends upon proper functioning and co-ordination of all organ of the body. The main components of health are food and oxygen which help us to produce energy that is used for body growth and work. During the process some waste products like carbon dioxide, ammonia etc. are also produced and excreted by the system. All these are done by the actively working organs. But due to some illness, medication and the way of daily life routine, the body organs may become less active and the process of energy production, synthesis and waste excretion may be slowed down. It may result in further sickness. Therefore, there is a need to keep the body organs in active mode ever and the only way to do this is to supply nutrition, proper amount of oxygen and instant removal of toxic wastes. The easiest way to accomplish is to improve breathing and blood circulation system. Blood supplies nutrient and oxygen to each cell of the body and removes the toxic wastes through lungs and excretory system. Once these processes are normal this body remains healthy, active and lives a long life. The simplest way to improve functioning of the body parts is  to do yogic exercises and to practice some breathing exercises which by way of contracting and expanding the muscles, organs and pressing and relaxing the nerves can keep the whole body in a sound working position.
