FDA just approved this device.

And we'll collect the moments one by one. I guess that's how the future's done. Feist, "Mushaboom", 2005

that looks like a positive feedback meditation approach to bp lowering. if it gains popularity there will be $45 knockoffs. I can remember bcak in the day when i would go to the doc and shift into TM while he/she took my bp.

I got a kitten and I sware that both my resting pulse and bp have dropped as result.

liftsiron is a fictional character and should be taken as such.

I would be very surprized if someone, somewhere has not done some research on this. The biofeedback component to BP control only surprized me because in the early days of biofeedback research, BP changes were elusive. Pulse was easy to lower, BP was something else. Things have come a long way. Just think of all those suffering from the negative side effects of BP meds and what alternatives will do for them. Anyhow, gotta run, I'm off to the Sat morning yoga class and my back is still sore from yesterday's work out.

it would be interesting to see if there is some residual bp lowering effect after the BF is stopped, eg average bp is 15 points lower thruout the course of the day.

I believe that research has been done in this area, my little cat has a very calming effect on me. Also certain other stressors in my life have lowered a bit as well.

Here's the citation that drew my interest. You have to log into Medscape to evaluate the original data.

14/8 average reduction is pretty damn good!
