As I mentioned before I believe that Stress is a major problem for Crohn's Disease Sufferers. It is almost what came first - the stress or the disease, much like the chicken or the egg. Now I no this might not be the case for everyone but after helping so many of my patients over the years deal with stress I think it is worth while talking about it again.
Today I thought I would give you my favourite yoga pose to do when I am feeling stressed. It is easy to do, so anyone can do it and you can do it anywhere. Plus it makes you feel amazing.
It is called child's pose.
Mandy Ingber, known as Jennifer Aniston's yoga guru, cannot stress enough the calming powers of Child's Pose — "It is humble. It is restorative; it calms the nervous system and stretches the back . . Anything forward-bend is pretty calming," says Mandy.
So try it for yourself and let me know how you go. Email me at email@example.com
Yours in health
