Surya namaskara is a powerful method of eliminating toxins from the body. However, these toxins should not be eliminated too quickly, for they may manifest in a number of uncomfortable ways, such as huge painful boils. If any such symptoms or sign of fever begins to show, reduce the number of rounds of surya namaskara or even stop altogether for a few davs. The toxins must be eliminated from the body, but it should be done gradually over a period of weeks or months, utilizing surya namaskara, asanas and pranayama.
As we have already stated, don't strain yourself by doing more rounds than your physical condition will comfortably allow. Additionally, don't attempt surya namaskara if you are ill, because at this time all the energy of the body needs to be internalized to heal and remove the ailment.
