HOW IT ALL STARTED
THE BREATHE-EASY SYSTEM evolved after Californian, David O'Hara was diagnosed with high blood pressure! In his mid-40s, laid-back, fit and active - his stunned reaction... Why me?
He checked out the facts. High blood pressure occurs when blood vessels become clogged due to plaque build up, resulting in the heart working harder to pump blood to vital organs. This condition cannot be ignored - the alternative is the risk of heart attack, strokes and kidney problems.
Fear and medical judgement compel patients to take the pharmacological route. David resisted and although not anti-medicine, knew first hand that hitting on the right combination of dosage and drug required a complex balance to be effective, plus he had no intention of being the slave to a routine of pill-taking for the rest of his life.
Various drug options are prescribed as appropriate, with some patients taking more than one kind of tablet. There are ACE inhibitors, calcium channel blockers, diuretics, beta blockers and alpha blockers with possible allergic reaction and side effects, from a persistent dry cough, back pain, dizziness and swollen ankles to fainting and erectile disfunction... and a warning not to eat grapefruit!
To reverse elevated blood pressure needs a tough mindset. It's not easy on your own - it's a tedious, lonely route and takes a strong will and can bring its own kind of anger and stress. Your doctor will recommend changes to a healthier way of living by following the golden rules: stub out tobacco, shake less salt, eat potassium rich foods, stay slim, be active and eat dark chocolate... yes really....Flavanols make blood vessels more elastic! The first step is to factor in guilt-free, 'me time' and slow down!
Despite all attempts, David's blood pressure continued to creep up - not all hikes on the scale are lifestyle related! He was desperate and when it looked as if drugs were the only option, he discovered A TRUE BREAKTHROUGH IN NATURAL BLOOD PRESSURE CONTROL in an amazing medical report. The research endorsed that the method was well established and clinically proven. David began experimenting with breathing patterns to slow, soothing music. Inhaling and exhaling rhythmically decreases stress and increases well-being.
Once the technique was mastered, real changes happened. Initially, the lower readings lasted for a short while, but after two weeks, some reduction lasted all day and after seven weeks, most of the readings were below the accepted borderline of 140/90..... to all intents and purposes, David's high blood pressure was controlled! He was so impressed, he explored how this holistic approach could help others and created the BreatheEasy System
It's easy, totally safe, enjoyable and affordable....YOU'VE NOTHING TO LOSE - APART FROM HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE READINGS!

- HOW IT ALL STARTED
The Journal of Human Hypertension announces a remarkable breakthrough by a pioneering team of hypertension specialists and medical researchers. Their report is but the first of many to appear in medical journals.
I had used breathing for relaxation and other purposes and I knew how powerful it is. I just didn't know that it could actually produce lasting drops in blood pressure. I was also surprised at how easy it was - only 15 minutes a day - and with none of the complications of yoga and meditation, which I must confess I lack the patience for.
So I learned everything possible about this new method and began experimenting with it. I soon learned that the boredom or distraction from counting or following any sort of timing device killed the whole process. After a while I was able to internalize the right breathing pattern and use it while relaxing to gentle music. This finally developed into a pleasant and regular routine and the rest is history!
