From the Back of the Book:

Yoga and Cardiovascular Management is a compilation of the discussion between Swami Satyananda Saraswati and a group of French medical experts, physicians and yoga teachers who shared their views on yoga and the medical management of cardiovascular disease. The discussions shed light on the yogic approach to managing the whole range of heart and vascular diseases in relation to the medical point of view. Both yoga and medicine are sciences in their own right and while they complement each other in managing disease, yoga is shown to embrace the whole individual nature in getting to the root and cause of disease.

In addition to cardiovascular diseases, respiratory diseases and cancer are also included, giving the yogic explanation and management techniques with scientific back up. The research data was correlated by an Australian doctor, and the scientific disposition and language make this book ideal for both medical scientists and lay people alike.

About the Author:

Swami Satyananda was born at Almora, Uttar Pradesh, in 1923. In 1943 he met Swami Sivananda in Rishikesh and adopted the Dashnami sannyasa way of line. In 1995 he left his guru's ashram to live as a wandering mendicant and later founded the international yoga fellowship in 1963 and the Bihar school of yoga in 1964. Over the next 20 years Swami Satyananda toured internationally and authored over 80 books. In 1987 he founded Sivananda Math, a charitable institution for aiding rural development, and the Yoga Research Foundation. In 1988 he renounced his mission, adopting kshetra sannyasa, and now lives as a paramahamsa sannyasin.
