Tibetan Yoga became popular in US after Peter Kelder wrote the book Ancient Secret Of The Fountain Of Youth in 1930, recording the experiences of his friend who spent two years with the Lamas in Tibet and returned with his arthritis and eyesight improved. According to Kelder, Bradford's stay in the lamasery transformed him from a stooped, old gentleman with a cane to a tall and straight young man in the prime of his life. Additionally, he reported that Bradford's hair had grown back, without a trace of grayhttp://www.mkprojects.com/pf_TibetanRites.htm
