Yoga Treatment for Drug Addiction
Beside the above mentioned asana and pranayama practice of yoga nidra, concentration and meditation gives the best result.
YogaNidra is a state of conscious Deep Sleep. YogaNidra brings an incredible calmness, quietness and clarity. It has great Therapeutics values.
It is quite necessary to shower love, goodwill and sympathy if the patient is not true to himself or till he does not leave his internal wish to restart taking the intoxicants.
