It is only common sense that a Yogic (vegetarian) diet will result in calmer behavior. Every time it is written that Hitler was a vegetarian is humorous. My reason: Show me the proof! Hitler was a meat eater who loved dogs. Many hunters are the same.

Back to Yogic dieting: Yoga is beneficial even in case of eating disorders, in that specific Yoga poses can be used effectively for restoring better digestion and mental health. As with many conditions, eating disorders can better be dealt with through a calm and focused mind and of course drug-free healing methods. Often times, depression and low self esteem are problems associated with people with eating disorders, and Yoga can help with both.

Moreover, as a corrective measure from abuse arising from eating disorders, some Yoga poses together with the breathing exercises, are extremely effective. Also, there are different Yoga practices which encourage heightened levels of self esteem, and promote a positive view of our own body. Furthermore the Yoga Diet consisting of mucus-less and mucus-poor fruits, leafs and other vegetables is perhaps the most preventive and curative therapy of any disease that may be associated with anorexia or bulimia, be they physical or mental.

Yoga can be modified and adapted to suit the needs of everyone, included people with chronic diseases and disabilities. For instance, people with osteoporosis, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, stroke patients and even people in wheelchairs, find that Yoga can make amazing and unexpected changes in their lives. In the treatment of osteoporosis, a combination of diet and performing weight-bearing exercises is beneficial. Because we bear our own weight during a yoga session, this low-impact form of exercise is perfect for people who cannot enjoy jogging, running, or other high-impact activities.
