Resperate lowers blood pressure

I have always been skeptical of Resperate’s claims of reducing blood pressure, and its cost of between $300 and $400 US$. That’s a lot of money for these tough times.

A small study has shown that use of the Resperate breathing device lowered blood pressure in a group of diabetics.

Neither Steve or I have used Resperate and are not promoting Resperate. However, this study had some surprising results, and it would be great to hear some feedback from those who have used or know of Resperate.

Tell us what you think about Resperate by replying to my post on our My Health Software forum and share your thoughts.

Video: What is Resperate?

I found it hard to find a video to explain Resperate that wasn’t an outright advertisement. This one from a U.K. TV show was short and entertaining.

The slow breathing study

Researchers studied 66 non insulin dependent Type 2 diabetic patients with high blood pressure. The patients used a self guided breathing device called Resperate at home for 8 weeks. They were asked to use the device for 15 minutes 3 times a week.

The patients listened to music through head phones attached to the device and slowed down their rate of breathing by watching the device.

At the end of the study the participants had a reduction in systolic blood pressure on average of 10 mm Hg, compared to the control group. 88% of the patients using the device had a lowering of blood pressure.

The study was published in the Journal of Human Hypertension.

I find that reading reviews on Amazon is a great way to learn about a product from those who have already brought and used it. The reviews on Amazon are helpful to read others experiences with Resperate.

    Kellie,

    I purchased a device while on holiday in New York after a high BP reading in ER and then a BP reading of 160/100 at a physician’s office. In 2 1/2 weeks of use (daily for 15 minutes) my BP rate has gone down to 118/72 (just after using Resperate) to 134/ 82 during stressful times during the day. I have also started taking Olive Leaf extract and green tea capsules, both of which are vasodilators. I think this is pretty good, and I feel much better…more relaxed. I am glad I didn’t just start BP medication as the doctor suggested.

      Hi Deirdre,

      I agree! Getting blood pressure levels down to a healthy level can take a bit of trial and error and more than one thing. Managing stress is hard to do when you’re busy. When I am stressed I tend to exercise. It means I am so exhausted that I sleep well at night and usually wake up refreshed.

      It’s great to hear that you are more relaxed and are feeling good. happy Easter!

    Thanks Kellie,
    I agree! I do exercise at the gym 3 times a week, and walk a lot and ‘wrastle’ numerous toddler grandchildren regularly , but I believe resperate is what has had the most dramatic effect for me.
    It is a shame health insurnce companies don’t cover the cost of the device…it would ultimately save huge amounts of cost of medication for many individuals. Thanks for your website, I hope it helps others.
    Cheers,
    Deirdre
