RRS, a male participant, was admitted into Kaivalyadhama Yogic Hospital with complaints of obesity, hypertension, borderline diabetes mellitus, and hyperlipidemia. The health-related parameters, namely, weight, blood glucose level, lipid profile, spirometry, and chest-back-leg strength, were assessed. Pre-tests and post-tests were held before and after 30 days of yoga and naturopathic treatment intervention, including diabetes-related expert advice. His weight was reduced from 100 to 92 kg, HbA1c was reduced from 8.1% to 6.9%, and lipid profiles total ratio came down from the initial reading of 4.5 to 3.7, following the intervention.
