RESEARCH INTO YOGA AND CANCER CARE:
There is no scientific evidence to prove that yoga can cure or prevent any type of cancer. But some studies suggest that it might help people with cancer cope with symptoms and side effects.
In March 2010 a review of studies into yoga for patients with cancer was published. It included 10 trials.
It found that yoga could help to reduce anxiety, depression, tiredness (fatigue) and stress for some patients. And it improved the quality of sleep, mood and spiritual well being for some people.
