Beach Lane Presents - Episode 10 | Doug Wilson and the Healing Power of Kundalini Yoga
Doug has a remarkable story about the diagnosis of a life threatening brain tumour that required a 13 hour operation he was lucky to survive. After suffering multiple complications like meningitis and extensive cranial nerve damage, Doug left hospital in a wheelchair with doctors advising a 12-18 month recovery period and expectations to “never be the same again”.
After slow progress using modern, conventional treatment Doug took rehabilitation on through finding practices like Yoga, meditation and plant based eating bringing unimaginable results and just over 6 months later Doug became the first person to complete 7 competitive marathons on 7 continents in under 7 days (6 days 18 hours). A feat recognised by Guinness World Records as “Fastest time to complete a marathon on each continent (male).”
Leila and Doug get to chatting about how Doug attributes taking up a Kundalini Yoga practice and shifting to plant based diet helped with his incredible recovery and then taking his experience one step further to becoming a Kundalini Yoga instructor to share his journey and experiences with others to help them return to better health.
