Biofeedback: What Works
are summaries of a few well-designed, representative studies:
- In a review of studies by Dr. Jeanne
Achterberg for the NIH in 1992, biofeedback was found to be efficacious for
over 150 conditions.
- During a 1996 study by Dr. Angel McGrady
of the Medical College of Ohio, patients with insulin-dependent diabetes were
able to improve blood sugar stability.
- From a 1997 study by Nakao in Japan,
hypertension patients using biofeedback learned to reduce stress-related
increases in blood pressure.
- Following a fifteen-month study of
asthmatics by Dr. Erik Peper and colleagues at San Francisco State University,
biofeedback patients suffered fewer attacks and used less medicine.
