      wwww.ericvalli.com
      The site is in french but it's worth browsing it, even without
      understanding. Take a look at the "boutique".
      Best wishes,

        I received a marketing email today promoting a product that helps lower
        blood pressure by guiding you to perform therapeutic breathing. I chuckled
        to myself as I thought that this is what we do during meditation!

        Has anyone used this or similar products and could they tell us their
        experience?

        Cheers...Tony

        "Scientific evidence shows that therapeutic breathing exercises can
        significantly lower your blood pressure; but these exercises are difficult
        to perform on your own.

        Using patented technology, RESPeRATE guides you to perform therapeutic
        breathing exercises proven to lower your blood pressure.

        Six clinical studies, by leading hypertension specialists, prove that
        RESPeRATE safely and effectively lowers blood pressure.

        RESPeRATE does not require a prescription and can be safely incorporated
        into any high blood pressure program your doctor has recommended."

        Dear Tony and all, There is a lot of scientific documentation that controlling the breath will in fact lower blood pressure. For instance, this was well

          Dear Tony and all,
          There is a lot of scientific documentation that controlling the
          breath will in fact lower blood pressure. For instance, this was well
          demonstrated by Herbert Benson M.D. in his studies for the Harvard
          Medical School in the early 70's during his research for his book
          "The Relaxation Response". So, it is highly possible that RESPeRATE
          "works", but it is also probably no more effective than any of the
          pranayama (breathing techniques) we find in Raja Yoga (the Yoga of
          Meditation). So, as an example, if you would simply inhale for one
          second, hold it for one second, and exhale for one second, and
          repeat this pattern for 10 to 20 minutes, it will produce at least as
          good a blood pressure lowering response as any method this ad offers.
