Q:When I perform my slow inhale and exhale breathing exercises my blood pressure goes down. If I don’t do the exercises my blood pressure goes up. Does that mean that if I do enough of the slow breathing exercises I should be able to keep my blood pressure down?
A:Clinical studies for the Resperate have proven slow, controlled breathing lowers blood pressure. However, the breathing must be done effortlessly and on a subconscious level to see positive results from breathing exercises. This is why I recommend using the Resperate. You just listen to music, relax, and lower your blood pressure without any side effects. You could be harming yourself by trying to consciously control the way you breathe. For instance, many people tend to hold their breath as they attempt slow breathing exercises and this can increase blood pressure.
