In the past 5 years, I have been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis (inflammation of the bowel) and high blood pressure, I have injected myself once a week for the past 15 years and taken a cocktail of pills for over 20 years. 

I have been going to bikram yoga for 9 weeks now and what a difference it has made to my life the best way to describe what it has done for me is made me feel HUMAN again a feeling I haven’t felt for years. 

A few weeks ago I visited my rheumatologist he couldn’t believe the difference in my joints the fact there was no inflammation and for the first time ever I was scored a 4 for pain/ mobility etc normally for me Iam on the high end of the scale anything from 7-9 and ever more amazing my blood test have come back normal for inflammation which has never happen. 

I did find it very hot to start with and really struggled to stay in classes. It took 3 classes for me to complete a full class, but the morning after my first class the difference in my joints was amazing which is what made me go back. 

I have done things that I haven’t been able to do in years, ridden my daughters pony, wear high heels, open jars and stay awake for a full day without nodding off on the couch. I have more energy, have even got my,6ft, 120k husband and 15year old son along as they are seeing the amazing changes bikram is doing for me.   

The most amazing thing about all this is I haven’t taken any medication injection or pills for 9 weeks.
