Yoga May Help Treat Depression, Anxiety Disorders

Yoga's postures, controlled breathing and meditation may work together
to help ease brains plagued by anxiety or depression, a new study

Brain scans of yoga practitioners showed a healthy boost in levels of the
neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric (GABA) immediately after a
one-hour yoga session. Low brain levels of GABA are associated with
anxiety and depression, the researchers said.

Dr. Chris Streeter, assistant professor of psychiatry and neurology,
believes yoga could prove a useful tool to help people battling
depression and anxiety disorders. "We're not advocating that they chuck
their medication, but I would advise that they could use it as an adjunct
and see how they are doing," Streeter said.
