PTSD in Veterans – This Can Help
Written by Eli Ben-yehudaOn September 19, 2018
We have just learned of a new clinical study with very relevant findings for pre-hypertensives and people suffering from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).
A new peer-reviewed article published performed by Emory University clinicians and published in the American Journal of Physiology-Heart and Circulatory validated for the first time the beneficial effects of RESPeRATE therapy on Veterans with Post-traumatic stress disorder and pre-hypertension.
The study demonstrated that RESPeRATE not only lowered the blood pressure of these veterans but improved the Sympathetic Baroreflex Sensitivity (BRS) which is known to be impaired in patients with PTSD.
Thousands of veterans have already received RESPeRATE in elect VA medical centers where it’s available with clinician prescription. Enclosed below are few Veteran related Frequently Asked Questions. If you are a US veteran who has high blood pressure and would like to check if RESPeRATE is available at your VA Medical Center please email [email protected]
