Did you know that there is an FDA-cleared non-drug medical device clinically proven to lower high blood pressure? We did not. Not until we went to Frost & Sullivan’s awards, where InterCure, Inc. received the 2005 Hypertension Treatment Technology Innovation of the Year Award for its RESPeRATE system. Here is how it works:
InterCure has patented a fundamental method for manipulating biological rhythmic patterns (e.g., respiration, movements of small blood vessels, peristaltic gastrointestinal movements, etc.) using external rhythmic patterns (e.g., sound, light, pressure etc.).
Together with additional proprietary technologies, the Company has developed the “Interactive Respiratory Pacing” technology platform, which guides the user to perform breathing exercises tailored to treat a particular cardiovascular or pulmonary disease state and dynamically adapts to each user’s individual respiration pattern.
Using RESPeRATE’s interactive breathing exercise for just 15 minutes, 3-4 times per week, delivers a significant all-day blood pressure reduction.
The device (an electronic yoga studio?) is an OTC product that can be purchased without a prescription.
