Therapeutic yoga reduces pro-tumorigenic cytokines in cancer survivors

Cancer and cancer recovery is associated with inflammation. This inflammation can be measured through blood tests, which measure the concentration of cytokines. In this novel study, 17 patients with cancer were asked to perform 16 weeks of yoga three days a week. On completing this yoga practice, patients had reduced cytokine levels indicating that yoga can help reduce inflammation associated with cancer and may have the potential to reduce the recurrence of cancer.
