Guillain–Barre Syndrome

I started Bikram Yoga on Dec. 26, 2005 and after only one class I knew that I had found something that would forever change my life!

I was stricken suddenly in February of 2005 with a rare autoimmune disease called Guillain–Barre Syndrome. It is a nerve disease that comes on without warning and can cause pluralization and the lungs to stop breathing.

I was hospitalized for a week and sent home with a care taker for the next few months. I was unable to do almost anything, walk, talk, write, cut my own food, wash my hair, etc. I was plagued with fatigue and pain everyday and night. I was slowly getting better but not anywhere near normal.

I was at an end, and the doctors told me that there was nothing left for them to do. I was going to live my life in constant pain and fatigue, taking boatloads of pills everyday! That’s when I decided that I need to find something better. I found Bikram Yoga, and it has changed my life! I now am almost 100% better, I have no fatigue or pain, I have lost 10 lbs, I have been able to go back to work and I am pill free!!! I feel great and I have my life back. Bikram’s Yoga has truly been a miracle for me. Thank you and your staff for saving my life!
