Why Healthcare Innovation is Vital to the Industry

Health
An industry like healthcare needs to keep moving forward no matter what. It is unlikely that we will ever reach a final stage of development in this sector; our knowledge will only open up new avenues that can be pursued instead. Let’s take a look at some of the sectors where healthcare innovation is vital. Development Obviously, one of the single most important places where healthcare innovation is vital is in the development stages. Much of the work in healthcare takes place in the labs and offices well away from the public. From new techniques that could save people’s lives to the manufacture of drugs, there is always work and research being done that could push this sector ahead.

The fifth chakra – Vishuddha, throat chakra meditation

The fifth chakra – Vishuddha, throat chakra meditation

Health
The fifth chakra (throat chakra meditation), located at the throat, is connected to the larynx, or voice box, and the thyroid and parathyroid glands, influencing both vocal expression and metabolism. Vishuddha or the throat chakra meditation also influences us on a cellular and molecular level; when harmony is present, everything is dancing together, expressed as health, wellness, and wholeness. When disharmony affects us, we see disease, atrophy, and chaos. The throat chakra meditation is an expansive energy based on vibration. It is associated with the energy of light and sound that permeates the entire universe in waves.

Secrets to perfect yoga poses

Health
Practicing vinyasa yoga with a yoga teacher is an ongoing art. Going deeper into practice is a goal for the novice to professional practitioner.

Physical Balance in Yoga Balance relies on an inner focus and outer stance. Balancing on one foot requires a shift of weight while maintaining the same focus. Examining how the balance is lost can correct losing balance. If standing in tree pose on the left leg and falling to the right, the hips may be uneven.

Breathe yoga and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Breathe yoga and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Health
Breathe yoga - Obsessive-compulsive disorder is a neuropsychological disorder characterized by uncontrollable, intrusive thoughts. These obsessive thoughts, images and impulses are not only illogical but disturbing to the patient, who feels powerless to stop them. Those with OCD experience high levels of distress and anxiety, largely because they are aware that their obsessive thoughts are irrational. Sufferers of OCD attempt to relieve the anxiety associated with obsessive thoughts by performing compulsions, or repetitive, often ritualized behaviors; the classic example is that of the patient who washes his hands compulsively to stave off the fear of disease. However, the specific fears associated with compulsive behaviors vary widely and are often incredibly personal. Some patient...

The Sixth Chakra: Ajna

The Sixth Chakra: Ajna

Health
The sixth chakra is connected to magnetic energy, a guiding force that puts everything on its path and preserves the natural order. The sixth chakra is also connected to the element of the mind, which creates the magnetic grid lines around which the energies of our lower chakras are guided and conducted.
