Finding Namasté was a turning point for me. On top of coping with run-of-the-mill middle age, I have a rare skeletal muscle disease called mitochondrial syndrome, which has been gradually stealing my ability to live an active life. Among other things, my doctors regularly test my pulmonary function to measure how well my lungs and respiratory muscles take in and release air to move oxygen from the atmosphere into my lungs for use by my circulatory system. The numbers kept falling, and were getting scary.
I received excellent news after my most recent pulmonary function tests: my inspiration results have improved by about 20%, to 60% of ‘normal’ and my expiration results are up 30%, to 120% of ‘normal’! Some of this is probably due to more accurate testing, but you get some credit here, too. Thank you!! When I was swimming competitively, both numbers were in the 140-150% range, just for comparison.
I don’t think I tell you enough how grateful I am for your support and help. I know every day that my work with Integrative Fitness has made a difference, but it’s nice to have some quantifying data to confirm that. Thank you, very, very much.
