Stopped Hormone Replacement Therapy with Help of Bikram Yoga
I have only one word to describe these two: Amazing. For anyone out there suffering as I did, yoga is for you. I was prescribed natural hormones and HRT at 36 years old and experienced every side effect: depression, hair loss, and hot flashes, etc.
Years later, the dangers of HRT were reported. So I did the unthinkable. Something you are told never to do. I stopped taking the Hormone Replacement Therapy cold turkey. And the day after, I took my first Bikram Yoga class at Bikram Yoga Tempe.
To my astonishment, after my first week of practice, I was no longer waking up with night sweats. And after a couple of weeks, my skin actually felt normal again since before the 14 years of medication. I no longer had hot and clammy skin, depression, or hair loss.
This yoga works your internal organs. After my first full year of Bikram Yoga, I had a physical at Mayo Clinic in 2004. After an ultrasound pelvic exam, to their amazement, my fibroid cysts from 1998 were completely gone. In addition, I had grown a half of an inch! So you see, only one word, AMAZING.
