Ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation – all of these can be exacerbated by stress. So if you stress less, you'll suffer less. Yoga, like any physical exercise, can ease constipation, IBS and ulcers if you have any. Because moving the body facilitates more rapid transport of food and waste products through the bowels, yogis suspect that twisting poses may be beneficial in getting waste to move through the system and help relieve related physical health issues.
