Whenever you begin a new exercise program, there are always health considerations to take into account. The information in this section is by no means comprehensive, and you should not substitute it for the direct advice of your doctor or health care provider.
If you feel any unusual discomfort or pain when you begin the Rites, stop practicing the exercises immediately, and discuss the situation with your qualified health-care provider. If you have had a previous injury, or are suffering from one at the moment, you must check with your health practitioner to ensure that the Rites will not aggravate your injury. Also, if you have a history of knee, shoulder, back, or neck injuries, it is always advisable to consult a qualified medical professional before attempting any of the postures.
It's particularly important to note that the Rites are not intended for pregnant women, as this is not the best time for you to begin a new workout program. If you are pregnant and have already been practicing yoga or Pilates regularly, you should discuss this program with a qualified prenatal yoga or Pilates Instructor, as modifications or alterations may be possible. Some of these exercises are not recommended, however, particularly in late-term. Once your baby is delivered, you'll find that the exercises are an excellent way to get yourself back into shape, and they can be done while the baby sleeps – at a time that suits you.
You should consult your physician before commencing the Rites if you have any of the following serious medical or psychological problems:
- Heat valve problems
- Enlarged heart
- Recent heart attack
- High or low blood pressure
- Meniere's disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- Parkinson's disease
- Seizure disorders
- Mental illness
Also consult your physician if you are taking drugs that cause dizziness, if you have had recent abdominal or chest surgery, or if you suffer from any of the following:
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Disc disease
- Severe arthritis of the spine
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Lower back injury
- Retinal or eye pressure (glaucoma)
Possible Detox Effects
Due to the increased elimination of impurities and wastes, and increased oxygen in your body, you may experience some minor detox effects. You could also experience some unblocking of the human energy system (chi, Qi, prana, etc.). Some people experience no symptoms' at all, while others experience one or more of the following:
- slight headache, as if you have given up coffee or fasted for the day
- a metallic taste in the mouth
- achy joints for a day or so
- darker, stronger-smelling urine
- diarrhea or strong bowel movement
- initial constipation
- slight nausea
- initial fatigue as the body balances itself
- cold or flu-like symptoms that last a day
- a runny nose as sinuses clear
- a tic or involuntary muscle movement over one eye
- a mild rash or pimples
- moodiness, either a bit snappy or teary
Consult your physician if these symptoms are severe or if they continue for longer than a few days to a week.
