Yoga has been proven to be effective in managing short and long term side effects and improve long term health. American Cancer Society and other oncology organizations recommends a minimum of 150 minutes of yoga per week for all cancer survivors.
Fatigue is one of the most common and debilitating side effects of cancer and its treatments. 70-80% of cancer patients report ‘fatigue’. And cancer-related fatigue is different from the fatigue of normal ‘daily life’. It is paralyzing. Cancer-related fatigue can last from months to years. It often continues years after treatment ends. Historically, rest was believed to be a management tool but research has proven that movement and exercise to be the best solution to manage cancer related fatigue.
