Skin Conditions - Anihidrosis


I suffered from Anihidrosis. Anhidrosis is the inability to sweat normally. When you don't perspire, your body can't cool itself, which can lead to overheating and sometimes to heatstroke — a potentially fatal condition. I have fainted or sought for First Aid units many times, and almost every summer specially around July 4th. My body will heat up, vision blurred, and I will pass out. Honestly I walked in to the Bikram Yoga studio, without reading enough about hot yoga. I wasn't new to yoga, but heat yes. First day, I still don't know how I survived without passing out :). But don't know why and how, I managed for the next 3 weeks everyday without giving up. I carried a cold wet towel with me, water bottle filled with ice, and a water sprayer!! I had to spray water to cool down the body temp. so that I could stay for the 90 minutes. The instructors initially did not agree to me coming in with the sprayer, but I requested them, and promised to get rid of it soon. Hesitantly they did. After 3 weeks of continuous practice, one day, I realized I hadn't used the sprayer through the class, and something like wet feeling on my hands and back of neck - oh I was sweating little. Slowly my sweating improved everyday, and within a weeks time, I stopped carrying the spray bottle :) Today it is been more than 10 months that I have been practicing Bikram Yoga, and in the room, within 5 minutes, I sweat very nicely. I do sweat outside in the sun, and I'm able to be outside during summer and not faint. some 20+ years back

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.
