CAN YOU SHARE SOMETHING ABOUT YOURSELF THAT PEOPLE MAY NOT KNOW? I was diagnosed with a rare genetic disease I am unable to process and remove copper from my body so it stores in my brain tissue and liver mostly. 1 in 30,000 are diagnosed. My Uncle passed away recently from complications from his liver transplant due to wilsons disease. I was fortunate enough to receive medical attention that ultimately kept me alive and keeps me grinding to this very day. My doctors said that if I hadn't been a yoga practitioner chances are I would not have survived. I had to change my raw vegan diet and begin introducing animal proteins back into my food choices. Give thanx daily, you never know when it's time for your final savasana.
