Feedback from a client, a patient of my daughter Padma Sripada MD (3) who attended 4 of my classes. Before attending the classes he was under severe stress due to his fiancee’s verbally abusive behavior. Practicing the breathing technique (1) and adopting my suggestions for effectively dealing with his fiancee (2), helped him take a decision to break off the toxic relationship. Apparently the relief from breaking off the stressful relationship combined with the relief from overall anxiety by practicing the technique resulted in significantly lowering his long standing high BP (high blood pressure/Hypertension) (4). His recent mail reads –
“I met with Dr Padma Sripada this morning. My BP was 140/90 – not too bad since I have not been taking my BP medication for the last 6 weeks. Also I have been eating out for the last 2 weeks due to my kitchen being remodeled. She has lowered my dose and said that once my stress is over and if it is OK, I can stop taking the BP medication altogether.”
