Yoga improves quality of life in breast cancer patients
Yoga improves quality of life in breast cancer patients (March 3, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Texas - Yoga improves quality of life among women with breast cancer, according to a report published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. Researchers randomized nearly 200 women with breast cancer to either participate in yoga, simple stretching, or no instruction in yoga or stretching. Participants took part in these programs one hour at a time, 3x a week during 6 weeks of radiation treatment. Results showed that those practiced yoga had the largest decline in their cortisol levels over the day. These results are important because higher stress levels have been linked with worse outcomes in breast cancer patients.
