Inner peace.

"Yoga and deep-breathing techniques -- alternate-nostril breathing especially. There are a few balancing poses that clear and focus my mind." -Ann Imrie Howlett, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada

"Meditation and mindfulness. When I learned to forgive my failures (on the condition that I do better next time), my path to freedom was clear." -Andrew Kinsella, Melbourne, Australia

"Yoga is a miracle treatment. Practicing regularly balances my mood and thoughts." -Janna, Norway

A strong support system.

"Having a best friend who is in the same boat has been invaluable. We help keep each other’s symptoms in check. Synchronizing our calendars has kept both of us on time for appointments!" -Cinnamon Welland, McLean, Virginia

"No treatment that I have tried has ever worked. My family deals with the untreated me. They’ve grown accustomed to me by now." -Priscilla Reese, Danielsville, Pennsylvania
