  1. Asthma Affirmations Help with COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)

    Asthma Affirmations Help with COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)

    We get occasional requests for guided imagery for COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) but don't yet have anything specifically targeted for this condition. We knew that anything that relaxed the listener would make symptoms better, but we were nonetheless gratified to read this post, where that assumption is validated:

    Dear Health Journeys,

    The [Asthma] affirmations work well for me, [who] suffers from COPD. I feel better and my breathing is more relaxed. I listen to this at night and when I wake up during the night. It has helped me to see my drugs as allies.

    I even had a dream of being in a beautiful hall with molded ceiling. There were friends around me, and a friendly healthy, strong and vital guide put his arm on my shoulder to comfort me. I woke up realizing that that luxurious room was my lungs feeling healed. Thank you Belleruth!

    With all my encouragements,

    Michael from the UK

  2. Asthma Affirmations Help With COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)

    We get requests for guided imagery for COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) but don’t have anything that specifically targets this condition.  We pretty much knew that anything that relaxed the listener and imagery of opened lungs could make symptoms better, but we were nonetheless gratified to read this post….

  3. Guided Imagery, Relaxation Can Reduce Serum IgE Levels in Asthma

    Researchers from the Department of Psychosomatic Medicine at Technische Universitaet Muenchen in Munich, Germany, investigated the immunological impact of relaxation and imagery on asthma by measuring the effects these techniques have on serum IgE in adult patients with dust mite allergic asthma in a randomized, controlled trial.

  5. Relaxation and Imagery Help Air Flow with Asthmatics

    Researchers from the Technische Universitat Munchen in Munich, Germany,  investigated the efficacy of a brief relaxation technique called functional relaxation (FR) and guided imagery (GI) in adult asthmatics, in a randomized controlled clinical trial.

    Sixty-four patients with extrinsic bronchial asthma were treated over a 4-week period and assessed at baseline, after treatment and after 4 months, for follow-up. Sixteen patients completed Functional Relaxation (FR), 14 the guided imagery (GI), and 15 both FR and GI together (FR/GI), while 13 received a placebo relaxation technique as the control intervention (CI).

    The forced expiratory volume in the first second (FEV(1)) as well as the specific airway resistance (sR(aw)) were employed as primary outcome measures.

  6. Relaxation & Imagery Help Adults with Asthma Breathe Easier

    Researchers from the Technische Universität München in Munich, Germany investigated the efficacy of a brief relaxation technique consisting of functional relaxation (FR) and guided imagery (GI) in adult asthmatics in a randomized controlled trial.

    Sixty-four patients with extrinsic bronchial asthma (externally caused, usually from inhaled allergens) were treated over a 4-week period and assessed at baseline, after treatment, and after 4 months, for follow-up.

    Sixteen patients completed the functional relaxation, fourteen the guided imagery, and fifteen a combination of both.  Thirteen received a placebo relaxation technique as the control intervention (CI). Primary outcome measures were forced expiratory volume in the first second [FEV(1)] as well as specific airway resistance [sR(aw)].

  7. Reducing Panic Attacks Helps with Asthma Too

    Investigators from the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in Piscataway, New Jersey evaluated two protocols for treating adults suffering from both asthma and panic disorder. The protocols included elements of Barlow's Panic Control Therapy  (- a combination of relaxation & breathwork, cognitive restructuring and graded exposure for desensitization) and several asthma education programs, as well as modules designed to teach participants how to differentiate between asthma and panic symptoms, and how to apply specific home management strategies for each.

  9. Effects of imagery, critical thinking, and asthma education in adult asthmatics.

    Contrary to hypothesis, researchers at Saybrook Graduate School in San Francisco find that physiological guided imagery for asthma improves symptoms and management behaviors in asthma sufferers better than a technique called Critical Thinking Asthma Management..

    In a randomized, controlled, clinical trial, researchers from Saybrook Graduate School in San Francisco compared outcomes between biologically targeted imagery (BTI) and critical thinking asthma management (CTAM). Among 70 adults (53 women, 17 men) with asthma at Alaska Regional Hospital in Anchorage.

  10. Biofeedback treatment for asthma.

    In a randomized, controlled clinical trial with 94 asthma sufferers at the University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey, biofeedback was found to be an effective, complementary therapy for asthma symptoms..

    In a randomized, controlled, clinical trial, researchers from the Department of Psychiatry at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, atThe University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in Piscataway, evaluated the effectiveness of heart rate variability (HRV) biofeedback as a complementary treatment for asthma.
