Hepatitis C


I am on interferon and ribavirin treatment for my hepatitis C. Interferon is a chemotherapy drug and has many awful side affects including nausea, extreme fatigue, headaches, body aches, flu-like symptoms, skin rash, hair thinning, insomnia, loss of appetite, anaemia, digestive problems, depression and anger. I experience all these symptoms and am sometimes bed-ridden or need to take heavy pain-killers.

They did not think I would be able to do much due to the side affects.

Straight away I noticed the head and body aches improve, and by the end of the class I usually feel tired, but good. I am almost finished a 60 day challenge. Some days I cannot do all the postures, but simply turning up to class and giving my best helps with my sense of worth and integrity. My sleep is also better. Most of the time the hardest part is getting out of bed to go to yoga, but I almost always feel better. I rarely feel worse. Sometimes I feel a little nauseous at yoga, but that is just a normal symptom of the interferon. It is not just the physical postures helping me; it is also the yoga community. I feel loved and accepted at the studio at that helps me with feelings of depression or anger. I feel like a part of the yoga community, and some days even when I feel physically awful I can still smile and be happy because I am around other people who are also trying to do something good for themselves.


Weight Loss:It may not make me proud, but I'll admit it; I first came to yoga out of a desire to attain that lean, toned, fit "yoga body" that women

I am diabetic type 1 and have been injecting since 1989, when I was diadnosed age 6. I have been lucky to learn a great deal from my diabetes.

In March of 2002 my heart beat increased to 200 beats per minute. The electrical current in my heart malfunctioned due to the scar tissue from my 1985 heart attack. My good health from practicing Bikram yoga kept me alive.

This testimonial is the story of my personal recovery from debilitating pain from herniated discs through the practice of Bikram Yoga. This yoga gave me back my life.
