Smyth JM, et al (1999) mentions the benefits of therapeutic writing, among other things: helps relieve the symptoms of asthma and rheumatoid arthritis (inflammation of joints due to rheumatism). This statement is supported by Baikie KA and Wilhelm K (2005), which examined the long term benefits of writing expressive writing method.

According to research, this therapy can enhance and repair the mood (mood), functions of the immune system (immune), improve lung function (particularly asthmatics), physical health and pain (especially cancer patients), the function of the heart, lower blood pressure, reduce tension with regard to the need to go back to the doctor, reduce the symptoms of depression, reduce negative impacts after the trauma.
