We’ve seen countless reports on what yoga can do for people with so many different conditions and dis-eases. New York’s Beth Israel hospital was so convinced of yoga’s healing power they set up a Zen wing! (courtesy of Donna Karan and Urban Zen). Cancer patients are offered recovery techniques like yoga, meditation, aromatherapy, reiki, and undergo nutrition training. Patients are also assigned a “patient navigator” to help them during their stay in the hospital. Fantabulous.
“It helps people get through treatment and to fight,” Elaine Meszaros, R.N., C.N.S., Beth Israel Medical Center explained. “Patients seem more satisfied and more cared for, ” Shirley Escala, R.N,. Beth Israel Medical Center said.
But what about the hardworking nurses and doctors shuffling around the hospital all day, you say? Shouldn’t they have a dose of their own medicine? We think so! Practice what you preach seems to be the theme here as caregivers at Beth Israel join in for their bit of R&R. And it makes sense! Would YOU want someone administering potent medicinals all high-strung and unfocused? Not us!
