The C.A.M. Report
Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    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.
