Yoga Helps Man with Multiple Sclerosis

20 Sep

My husband has had M.S. for over 20 years. He is confined to a wheel chair most of the time, and he suffers from debilitating fatigue.  At the suggestion of a support group friend, he started using yoga videos.  I personally thought this would be a waste of time, but he found Carol Dickman’s yoga especially helpful – both the Seated Yoga and the Bed Top Yoga.
I’m delighted to have been wrong.  This practice has done him a world of good.  He has more energy and strength, and his mood is decidedly better.  It’s great to see his spirits so lifted.  

I’m asking you to post this, to let others know about the benefits of yoga, as it is not something one would necessarily think of for someone with debilitating fatigue in a wheelchair.
