RESPeRATE is the only non-drug therapy that has been clinically proven over and over again to lower blood pressure.
The clinical studies on RESPeRATE have been published in numerous peer-reviewed publications including The American Journal of Hypertension and the American Heart Association Hypertension Primer.
Details of the studies:
- Clinical studies design included five randomized controlled studies (1,2,5,7), one controlled (4) and four open-label studies (3,6,8,9)
- The studies compared those who used RESPeRATE for 15 minutes a day for 8 weeks to a control group, using a walkman with relaxing music (1) a home blood pressure monitor (4,5) or both (2)
- There were a total of 507 participants, average age of 58
- 78% of participants were already taking blood pressure medications, a third of whom were taking 3 or more medications
- Average initial office blood pressure of 150/90 mmHg despite other therapies, diet, exercise and/or medications
The Blood Pressure Lowering Results Demonstrated by RESPeRATE:
- RESPeRATE users with uncontrolled blood pressure experienced a significant decrease in office blood pressure by up to 36 points systolic and 20 points diastolic (top 10% reductions) with average reduction of 14/8 mmHg points
- The control treatment reduction was 9/4 mmHg, significantly less than with RESPeRATE
- The results were similar across genders and medication status.
- The drop in office BP was directly related to the duration of slow breathing. Those who used RESPeRATE more achieved better reductions
- A clinically significant sustained reduction in blood pressure typically occurred in 3 to 4 weeks
- Larger reductions in office blood pressure occurred in older individuals and those with higher baseline blood pressures, whether taking antihypertensive medication or not
- Home blood pressure measurements (for up to 6 months of use7) and 24-hours ambulatory blood pressure monitoring3,9 have verified an all-day, lasting blood pressure lowering effect
