Biofeedback background and application

Biofeedback relaxation training (BFRT) is a tool for stress management. Background information on the relationship between stress and disease, the theory of BFRT and its application to smoking cessation; asthma; binge eating, obesity, and stress; as well as hypertension and cardiovascular disease is available on the LookSmart website.

Be forewarned, this is a long article (more than 5000 words) and a bit dry. But it is worth the time if you are considering BFRT to complement ongoing treatment for the diseases listed above.
