    The objective was to investigate characteristics of patients using alternative therapies for asthma, reasons for its use and its association with conventional medicine use. Over a period of 14 months, 32 (18%) of 187 patients completing a survey reported using alternative therapies to treat asthma. The most common alternative therapy used was exercise/massage; the least popular was homeopathy. The highest users were women (59%), ages 41-50 (31%), White ethnicity (63%), higher education (56%), and higher annual household income (84%). The major reasons for usage were having more control of their health, personal beliefs, and concern over side effects of conventional medication. It is concluded that the rate of alternative therapy use in patients with asthma in central New Jersey was lower than in some other studies. It is important for physicians to take these therapies into account to develop a health care plan consistent with patients’ beliefs and expectations.  Show abstract

    This school-based study analyzed the impact of RGI on lung functioning (forced expiratory volume in 1 s [FEV1] and forced expiratory flow 25-75 [FEF25-75]) and by employing a multiple baseline design across 3 high school students with asthma and clinically diagnosed anxiety disorders. The RGI intervention took place for a 20-min period, an average of three times per week, over a 4-week period. At the onset of the intervention, it was found that lung functioning, particularly FEV1 increased in all 3 participants, with effect sizes ranging from —.32 to —2.48. FEF25-75 improved in one of the participants. In addition, a positive impact was also seen in the lowering of anxiety scores across all 3 participants, with effect sizes ranging from .12 to 1.69. Show abstract

  • The effect of tape-recorded relaxation training on well-being, symptoms, and peak expiratory flow rate in adult asthmatics: A pilot study Article
    • May 1999

    Evidence indicates that psychological stress plays a role in precipitating and exacerbating asthma symptoms and suggests that relaxation techniques aimed at reducing stress and autonomic arousal leads to symptom reduction. This study explored the effect of a tape-recorded relaxation intervention on well-being (mood and stresson). asthma symptoms, and a measure of pulmonary function (PEFR). Twenty adult asthmatics were studied for 21 days in their natural environment using a multiple baseline design. Self-administered relaxation training (including both breathing exercises and muscle relaxation) led to decreased negative mood and stressor report. Reporting of asthma symptoms decreased over time, and PEFR was increased by relaxation training. Asthma medication use was unchanged. Results suggest that tape–recorded relaxation training positively impacts well-being, asthma symptoms. and PEFR in a naturalistic setting. Further study of the potential use of inexpensive tape-recorded interventions in chronic illness is warranted.  Show abstract
