A doctor teaching the technique to her patients

I gave copies of the hand outs (1) to a doctor of internal medicine known to my daughter Padma Sripada. When I met her after a few months, she said that she was using the technique herself and found it useful. She told one of her patients  under 5-6 medications and suffering from severe insomnia, to practice ‘counting breaths’ in blocks of 1 to 10 at bed time.  She made the patient practice it in the exam room, in her presence. After 2 days, that patient called and said after a long time, she was able to sleep happily!
