A Lotus, A Triangle. . .and A Better Quality of Life: Yoga and Cancer | candidaabrahamson

A good piece on yoga and cancer. Quote on some randomized trial results:

A significant reduction was observed in psychological distress, physical distress, a significant increase in the activity level . . .and a significant reduction in fatigue, pain, insomnia, nausea and vomiting . . .following yoga intervention as compared to controls…..

The yoga group had a 42 per cent reduction in fatigue, versus only 12 per cent in the control group (that’s significant), and, comparing their pre- and post-yoga scores, the groups had more improvement in the quality of their sleep  (22 versus 12 per cent) and felt sleepy less during the day (29 versus 5 per cent) compared with the non-yoga group–and all that was accomplished while reducing use of sleep medication.
