I have been sick with lyme and bart and ehrlichia for 9 months. I went through three rounds of abx and have been off it for 1.5 months.

Today for the first time, I feel like my normal self bursting with energy, no pains no nothing. Even my tinnitus (for 3 months) is gone today.

I hope that that is the end of my lyme deseases.

I know that bikram yoga has helped me to a great deal. I started bikram three months ago with the permission of my lyme doctor. He said that the heat and oxgen should do some good.

When I first started, I did not feel well. I was tired and with aches for several days. Sometimes, I was in pain and was so tired, I just slept through the entire class. As the abx started to work, I continued with the program. I got stronger and stronger. Now I can finish the class! Energy wise, I feel like I am back to my normal self today.

Keeping my fingers crossed and hope that I will continue to feel this way.

Rainbow, I am in central NJ at the shore and have been interested in finding a Bikram Yoga class, but it seems that most of them are further north. Do you mind me asking where you go?

Thanks,
Jennifer

I love yoga. I have done one hot yoga class, the difference has to do with the poses. I'm looking for another place for hot, or birkham, it is so wonderful for people with lyme. Even reg. yoga is great, I have found a great place for that. Jasek

I'm glad this is working for some.

It is important to note that heat is not good for everyone. In fact, lyme patients often can be very bothered by heat. If one feels ill from it, back off, cool down.

If - after working up gradually - it seems to help, that's great.

But never, ever push heat. Heat can cause serious damage for some lyme patients and also cause long-lasting set-backs.

BTW, it is impossible to safely get the body hot enough to kill spirochetes, In fact, they go into cyst form if they get too irritated so it can be counterproductive trying to cook 'em out.

That is one reason why low-heat infrared sauna is recommended over the regular high heat ones (and for cardiac safety). You can still sweat in low heat.

Now, if Bikram works for some, great. We are not all dealing with exactly the same infections and some are at different stages. Just don't push the heat. Listen to your body.

Oh ya, heat definitely knocks me on my keister for a bit, such as when I sit in a hot tub. Afterwards I need to just go lie down. It seems to bother me more now than it did say a year or so ago, so I don't do it too often.

I mainly did it as a detox method.

I overdid a workout (pathetically, just a fraction of what I used to do) last week and paid for it for 3 days. So I know what you mean, need to do a better job of listening to my body. I know the days I can push and the days I cannot.
