I was introduced to RESPeRATE about 10 years ago when I picked up a flyer at my cardiologist’s office. “Lower Blood Pressure without Medication” caught my eye. I really don’t like to take meds because there are always side effects, interactions with other medications, consulting the pharmacist, having one more thing to remember, the cost, then running out, ordering, driving to pick up, standing in line, etc.etc.
I really don’t like to take meds! And, I have a further challenge. I had low blood pressure most of my life, but after nearly a year of chemotherapy for Pancreatic cancer (yes, I survived!) my blood pressure was high. The challenge was that I now had high and low blood pressure. High when sitting, but dropping precipitously low when I stood up. While on even a low dose of medication, I was often light headed and dizzy
Hoping to get off medication, I ordered a RESPeRATE machine. It was fun listening to “the little man inside the box.” He seemed to know everything I was doing and thinking. I was extremely diligent for weeks and my blood pressure faithfully came down. I knew that meditation was indicated with high blood pressure, and although there was no Mantra, it felt like a kind of meditation. I relaxed, and just let “the little man in the box” talk to me and to listen blissfully to the musical sounds, “Breathe in……Breathe out……” I often was so pleased I’d have two sessions.
“Why?” I’d ask myself do I DO it with RESPeRATE when I could just as easily close my eyes and do it without the RESPeRATE? My answer to myself was that for whatever reason, I like to do it with the machine, and I DO it, where I somehow just don’t get around to it on my own. I’m usually very independent and don’t like to be told what to do, but when it comes to the meditative breathing with RESPeRATE, I look forward to it, and actually miss it when I don’t do it.
The second use I’ve found for Respirate is as a benign sleep aid. So many of the people my age (82) have sleep issues. Mine is mild, and I don’t want to take sleeping pills for all the reasons I’ve already mentioned, and in addition – they often cause more sleep problem than they cure. Whenever I wake up in the middle of the night after a trip to the bathroom and lie awake for more than 5 minutes, I simply roll over, strap on my Respirate, put in the earbuds, and listen, listen, and ….. sleep.
I’ve found that the more I do it, the deeper is my relaxation and sleep. If I’m lazy and my blood pressure sometimes hikes — back to faithful use of RESPeRATE. I even take it on trips. My suitcase has to find space for my Respirate and my electric toothbrush. I like thinking that I’m a Modern Woman, and grateful for the peace of mind (and body) RESPeRATE has given me.
