Health Benefits I Never Expected
I came to Pure Hot Yoga St. Louis 7 months ago at age 61. I was active (running, weight lifting and another yoga practice) but still had chronic issues with asthma and high blood pressure. I thought I’d gotten any benefits I could from exercise.
When I began my Bikram journey I was using 2 medications for my blood pressure and 4 daily medications just to control my asthma (6 during bad periods). As I’ve very slowly progressed in my practice, I’ve been able to drop medications gradually…with the supervision of my physician of course. First one blood pressure medication, then the second. Now I’m off all my asthma drugs, including the rescue inhaler.
This morning I ran with no asthma medication for the first time ever. I can’t tell you how good that felt. I’m feeling great, minus the thousands
of dollars of drugs I needed just six months ago.
It’s true that we’re never too old or too sick….
