Re: Five month plus
Of course you take what a doctor says unless you are a fiendish rebel like me. It's a gamble, for sure. Guess I'm a gambler. But I experienced the terribly sorrowful example of my brother with strokes, a four year slide.
It is my firm belief that we have immense powers within us to overcome our genetic dispositions. My brother took everything dished out, caved in, suffered terribly, and only went downhill. Hence my contrarian stance.
Want to add Pyramid Pose or just Pyramid clasp: reaching back with both arms, hands clasping. This straightens and strengthens arms, shoulders, and straightens our all important spine. Helps us maintain good posture.
