JERUSALEM, October 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
I: High Blood Pressure, aka Hypertension, is a life-threatening disease; treating it with drugs is risky, very expensive, and mostly ineffective.
Fortunately, Hypertensive patients can be trained to become Normotensive by natural methods that are both effective, inexpensive, and risk free.
II: Home-based Self Care Program can help reduce Chronic Heart/Cardiovascular Disease patients' frequent rehospitalizations, and can cut our Health Care costs dramatically.
High Blood Pressure entails much individual suffering to the victims and constitutes a heavy financial burden on healthcare systems.
Much effort has been invested - including experiments with numerous anti-hypertensive drugs - yet so far it has failed to solve this universal, multifaceted problem.
Meanwhile, alternative, natural treatment modalities are becoming increasingly popular, and there is growing evidence that they are both effective and free of any side effects, among several other advantages.
One such treatment is the method called brelax[TM], developed by Stress Management Psychologist Yehudit Feuer, Ph.D..
The brelax[TM] method includes several Home-based Programs for enhanced mind-body wellness, based on elements of classical Yoga and Stress Management techniques.
All the Brelax Programs consist mainly of moderate exercises coordinated with deep breathing and systematic relaxation, which makes them
a: aerobic by definition, since the body is receiving more oxygen than it expends, so that it finishes exercising with a surplus amount of oxygen, and
b: applicable across a wide age range, including elderly, sedentary and disabled individuals.
One of these programs, focused specifically on Cardiac/Cardio-vascular disorders, was hospital-tested for effectiveness with brelax trained patients in two controlled studies:
1: with Hypertensive patients, in which the treatment group have experienced a significant reduction in their average blood pressure values, and
2: with Coronary Heart Disease Sufferers, whose cardiac performance and fitness improved significantly, independent of other life-style changes (*).
This simple, effective program can be easily implemented in hospitals, thereby
*facilitating cardiac/cardiovascular sufferers' smooth transition from Hospital Care to Self Care.
Equipped with a familiar, practicable tool, patients can continue to boost their recovery on their own after hospital discharge.
Such a Medical "Take-Away" Treatment can reduce chronic patients' repeated need for hospital care, and consequently
* ease the huge financial burden placed on the Health Care System by such patients' otherwise frequent re hospitalizations.
The training is now available on the internet, designed as a Self Help Kit:
Two richly illustrated user manuals explain the theory behind the method, and two constantly available guides on compact disks are there to facilitate regular practice, which is crucial for lasting effectiveness.
