A headstand healthy? (And why is my nose cold at night?)

Flow at questions from readers in the whole year. They are answered by our team of specialists. We selected three specific questions of the past year.

A headstand healthy?

1) Is a headstand healthy?

I read that for a while on your head is good because the blood flowing to your brains. Now I do this regularly and it is quite pleasant to do. But is it so healthy? It does not hurt for your cervical spine? Margo

Manuel Tinseled, osteopath:

Stand on your head is mentioned in the yoga 'Susana. You can carry this attitude with or without the support of the wall. It is an attitude and advanced in yoga practice under the supervision of a qualified yoga instructor.

There are in the medical literature descriptions of complications due Susana. This had to do with congestion to the head and the eyes, resulting in thrombosis in the blood vessels around the eye. Circulation and innervations of the head can be affected by this attitude and that is damaging to the head. It is therefore not recommended in both yoga and from the medical world to stand as the practitioner is familiar with high blood pressure, heart problems or weak blood vessels in the head on the head. With 50-plus is certainly discouraged when they have problems with their blood clotting.
