 When I found ASEA I went looking for an Associate to team up with to bring the wonderful news of  Redox Signaling to the world. And I was blessed and honored to find this man. Petre Radu – We work together, encourage one another and learn from each other too. Such a gift. If you are looking for an ASEA team we would love to talk with you. Or you can just head on over to his site (find the link in his post) or mine ( http://cyndilu.com/ASEA )You won’t likely find me standing on my head but this dude is rocking it and using ASEA to power the headstand in more than one way! Check out his post on Facebook here. Blessings, Cyndilu

Why would you stand on your head – Here are 10 reasons!

10 Awesome Health Benefits Of Headstand:

Sirsasana or headstand The health benefits of headstand and its variations are many. and ti’s often referred to as the king of all yoga poses and it is one of my favorite postures and I practice it for at least 10 minutes at the time, 7 days a week. (the classic variation)

Here are 10 reasons why headstand should be practiced every day:

1. By reversing the flow of gravity, a headstand simulates a “face lift” by letting your skin hang in the opposite direction. The inverted position of a headstand also flushes fresh nutrients and oxygen to the face, creating a glowing effect on the skin.

2. Headstands increase nutrients and blood flow to the scalp, decreasing onset of grey hair. Some yogis say that it will even convert grey hair back to its natural color!

3. Headstands stimulate and provide refreshed blood to the pituitary and hypothalamus glands. These glands are vital to our wellbeing, and are considered the master glands that regulate all other glands in the body (thyroid, pineal, and adrenals). This includes our sexual hormones, so you can expect better sex with a consistent headstand practice.

4. When the adrenal glands are flushed and detoxified with headstands, we create more positive thought. Depression will decrease, as going upside down will almost always put a smile on your face.

5. Better Sex Life and Alleviates Depression. Headstands help to stimulate and bring a fresh blood flow to your hypothalamus and pituitary glands, a set of “master glands” which help to regulate our bodies other glands and hormones. By refreshing your sexual hormones and detoxifying your adrenal glands, regular headstands will help improve your sex life, as well as increasing positive thought and general wellbeing.

6. Improved circulation occurs with a headstand practice. Because the heart constantly has to pump blood upward to the brain, the headstand gives the heart a rest and reduces unnecessary strain. In addition, while in headstand de-oxygenated blood is able to flow more easily from the extremities to the heart.

7. Any fluid that is retained in the feet is able to drain (edema), therefore reducing the onset and prevalence of varicose veins.

8. Headstands increase digestive fire and increase body heat. The intestines are cleansed by reversing the pull of gravity, while releasing congested blood in the colon.

9. Headstands strengthen deep core muscles. To hold a straight headstand for an extended period of time, the practitioner must engage the obliques, the rectus abdominus and the transverse abdominus. To really engage and strengthen the core, pike the legs by lifting and/or lowering both legs at the same time when coming in and out of the pose.

10. Eliminate your chances of having an ischemic stroke, as scientific evidence shows that this type of stroke rarely occurs in individuals that consistently do headstands!

Although I recommend learning headstand from a qualified teacher, its multifaceted benefits should not be ignored. Headstands can be contraindicative if you have neck injuries, extremely high blood pressure, ear and eye problems, if you are menstruating, pregnant, or have acid reflux. Shared by Petre Radu
