The sympathetic nervous system's response might cause stress in our metabolism. The "fight or flight" response refers to how the mind and body react to certain external stimuli. When confronted with a potentially dangerous or unsettling element, the mind and body prepare for one of two outcomes. Physically, this manifests itself as an instantaneous increase in heart rate and a rapid rise in blood pressure. Breathing becomes shallow and muscles tense in preparation for the next movement. Internally, this response lowers blood flow to internal organs and shuts down functions that aren't necessary at the time (such as digestion and disposal). In the short term, this state of greater alertness and readiness is helpful, as it prepares our bodies to react to external interventions and stimuli. The body is physically and intellectually equipped to act in both "fight" and "flight" situations. When long-term exposure to similar stress occurs, the problem begins. This "fight or flight" response is only intended to aid for a limited time; the longer it is triggered, the fewer resources the body has to function normally.

The "fight or flight" reflex has a natural countermeasure. It's known as the parasympathetic nerve system, or "relaxation response," and it's engaged automatically when the stressors are removed. However, you may boost its benefits by breathing deeply and relaxing your muscles. By lengthening this process, we allow our bodies to recover more quickly, allowing them to eliminate the negative effects of stress more quickly and effectively.

Yoga emphasizes the concept of reducing the detrimental effects of stress factors on your body via the use of breathing and relaxation practices. Looking at negative situations as challenges rather than threats can also help to reduce the "fight or flight" response. This method permits your mind to concentrate on finding a solution rather than reacting quickly. This strategy also employs the principle of acting rather than reacting, of taking the initiative rather than reacting to external stimuli.

Yoga's beneficial impacts on the healing process are evident. However, these strategies should only be used as a supplement to the healing process; they should not be relied on entirely. Combining yoga with traditional and modern medicine, as well as addressing a condition from both a mental and physical standpoint, yields the best outcomes.
