One of BYC regulars, Donald Cronin 36 from Cork, CEO of Alanya Animal Health Monitoring, shares his inspirational story of how Bikram helped him ditch pain medication and recover from the most challenging time of his life.
The top 2 challenges were my divorce and Ulcerative Colitis(a form of inflammatory bowel disease), which caused me to endure 3 major surgeries over 11 months to save my life. I lost my colon, but gained my life back. I had to improvise my practice for over a year and practice the pregnancy series just to be in the hot room. BY kept me sane in the darkest time of my life and I say thanks every day. So when in doubt, sweat it out!

As I stood at the back of the room before beginning my first Bikram Yoga class I had a lot of thoughts running through my mind. Most of them were regarding pain. My whole body was riddled with Rheumatoid Arthritis, a chronic disease that doctors agree has no known cause and no known cure. It is a chronic state in which the body is attacking it’s own joints, in a state of innocent confusion. My prognosis was poor and I was told by the best medical doctors that I would spend the rest of my life on toxic drugs that would prevent me from having children.
