Sara Torstensson, Psychiatric Outpatient Psychiatric Nurse Skaraborg Hospital Mariestad and Psychiatric Psychiatric Care Psychiatric nurse Skaraborg Hospital Falköping has authored scientific papers that have received international attention since being adopted by British The Guardian.
This article is about the research activities conducted at West Trollhättan University's professional curriculum, led by supervisor Professor Nra Kerekes.
"The purpose of our study was to investigate the effect of yoga on a 10-week health status," says Sara Torstensson and Petter Malmström in the press release.
152 people who participated in this study can enter Swedish institutions that do not exceed the security levels (1) and (2). They were divided into two groups. A group of practicing yoga and a control group of non-yoga physical activities. Participants had to complete self-assessment measures of psychological distress and mental symptoms before and after the test.
The results showed that all forms of physical activity improve mental health, hostility, suspicion, social excitement, and depressed symptoms.
The new discovery has revealed that yoga specifically reduces paranoia, obsessions and physical conditions caused by external stress. Indeed, yoga has reduced symptoms of anxiety, such as self-esteem, memory impairment, difficulty in decision making, loss of concentration, obsession, depression, and fear of fear.
As a result of this study, Sara Torstensson and Petter Malmström reflected the treatment of professional psychiatry, which has the potential to positively influence the patient's health without the use of drugs.
Unfortunately, the pediatric nurse's mission is not to share drugs that still have many side effects. Sara Torstensson and Petter Malmström say yoga is a great choice, so the psychiatric treatment center needs to adapt to treatment and need a lot of treatments or approaches.
