      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.
