Special campaign by the state government to improve the respiratory capacity of pre-tuberculosis patients through pranayama

The health department of state government planned to start a new campaign aimed at strengthening the lungs of people free from TB by taking prescribed treatment by the doctors. On the occasion of World Yoga Day the campaign will start on an experimental basis at 6 medical colleges in the state from Monday in the first phase, which includes Baroda Medical College and Sayaji Hospital.

The purpose of this program is to make the recovered TB patients more healthy and capable through yoga and pranayama. Giving that information, Vadodara District Tuberculosis Control Officer Dr. Vipul Trivedi said that a yoga pranayama training class has been organized for 19 such patients at Baroda Medical College from Monday.

This is a post-TB treatment physical rehabilitation program for tuberculosis-free individuals in which pranayama has been made a medium. Dr. Trivedi said the 19 selected healers would be taught pranayama for a week by two qualified yoga trainers. They will be trained in Kapal Bhati, Anulom Vilom, Omkar and Bhasthrika Pranayama. This pranayama stabilizes the respiration and strengthens the absorption capacity of the lungs.

Necessary tests including pulmonary function have been done as a precaution for those who are about to join this class. They will be given a guidebook along with one week of actual training. They will be encouraged to stay home and do regular yoga. After 21 days, these people will be tested again to test the effectiveness of pranayama.

He indicated that if the experiment proves beneficial, it will be considered as a long-term post-treatment program for TB-free.
