Doing this meditation has had unique and life changing experience for me. In 2006 I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. This was after my second pregnancy when the regular blood test showed up with high lipids and further testing revealed abnormal levels of T3 T4 and Thyroid stimulating hormones. Symptoms were mostly slow digestion,fatigue and over weight. I chanced upon Nadabrahma through Swami Anand Veetrag and started doing 2-3 times a week.
Subsequent doctor visit has shown no abnormal thyroid and regular testing lipids and thyroid profile has been normal.
Nadabrahma has other known benefits in the area of TMJ, scoliosis, swollen glands, laryngitis, cough and cold, sore throat, addiction, criticism, a persistent cold or flu that take a long time to heal, tonsillitis, acute infections, vocal and communication difficulties, and under active thyroid. It also affects the sternum, throat, and endocrines.
Doing Nadabrahma at your own pace one can realize the healing benefits.
Additional Insights: Doing this technique for three times a week has been very beneficial. Some times we have found we do not have 60 minutes set aside for complete meditation. Do the humming during alone time like driving, also if humming loud is not an option do humming with inside voice. This is very helpful in keeping thyroid active and healthy if we keep humming to 3-4 times a week
