Sage Yajnavalkya continues:
“While practicing Pranayama, when one inhales the breath and during hold, focuses on the Kundalini and offers the self to the Supreme Self, all diseases are removed.

 
When one draws the breath through the tongue and then folding back the tongue retains the breath will be healthy with sharp senses. 
Inhaling through left nostril and holding the breath, when the focus is done on mid eyebrows offering the self to the Supreme self will be free from diseases. If the focus is on the stomach the diseases of the stomach are removed.  If the breath is drawn through mouth (folded tongue) and on holding is focused to the stomach, the diseases in spleen are removed.
It will be clear that diseases are treated through Pranayama. 
Offering the ‘self’ to ‘supreme self’ is a ‘bhavana’ a way of total submission
But to get the right focus one must achieve a state of concentration.
Also all these Pranayamas should be practiced only under the guidance of a teacher.
