Thanks art girl for sharing your success, that's really great, I'm glad it worked for you but as kitt and lyn pointed out it's not for everyone!! I've actually always wanted to try it but worried that all the heat and exercise might cause me to have a panic attack, who know I may just try it though .
I'll stick with my meds for now, but never say never, thanks art girl xx
Thanks. I agree exercise and diet play a tremendous role in how well you feel mentally.As long as we have brought this up.........Any ideas for people who have a handicapp that prevents them from doing the gym type of work out.
Just toss out whatever comes to mind and remember we have ages teens through seniors on the forum :)ThanksKitt

I have also done Bikram yoga. Everytime I do it, I feel like I have detoxed. I take a cool shower afterward or go to the ocean. The sweating makes me feel so good. If I could I would stop all meds, it not about being ashamed of meds but it is about the side effects that meds creates for the body. So please before you discourage others, I would recommend trying out the yoga. It is about becoming focused and being present and the heat is to help with your muscles. There is only twenty six moves (no upside stands either) for 1 1/2 hrs. Try it out you may like it, you may even get off meds.
