* A doctor training her patients in ‘counting breaths’

I gave copies of the hand outs (1) to a doctor of internal medicine known to my daughter Padma Sripada M.d. 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.  To make sure the technique was clearly understood, she made her patient practice it, in her presence. After 2 days, that patient called the doctor and said that she was able to sleep happily after a long time !
