For years, up to 95 percent of the individuals diagnosed with hypertension have been told that the cause is a mystery. If you are one of them, this groundbreaking book can change your life with its revolutionary mind-body approach.

In Healing Hypertension, Samuel J. Mann, M.D., of the renowned Hypertension Center of the New York Hospital—Cornell Medical Center, reveals a lifesaving new understanding of the causes of high blood pressure and the critical role of repressed or "hidden" emotions. He shows how: Long-standing, deeply hidden emotions may be elevating your blood pressure and blocking effective treatment Recognizing and attending to hidden feelings can actually lower your blood pressure and reduce your need for medication Using a revolutionary new method for selecting medications that fit your individ-ual needs can give you improved results with less trial and error

Accessible as well as authoritative, Healing Hypertension features dramatic stories from Dr. Mann's own practice that demonstrate how many of his patients have actually achieved sustained lower blood pressure readings by honestly confronting the emotions they had unknowingly been keeping secret, even from themselves — sometimes for decades.

The book outlines the different ways you can begin the healing process, including support groups, therapy, and nurturing a sense of connectedness with others. It also explains the appropriate role of medication in controlling high blood pressure.

Dr. Mann draws on his experience in treating thousands of people with high blood pressure to reveal that, in many cases, what we aren't allowing ourselves to feel can affect our blood pressure more than what we are feeling. This is in direct contrast to the popular belief that hypertension is a disease of anxious, stress-ridden people.

Dr. Mann clears up crucial misunderstandings surrounding hypertension that have led to overdiagnosis, unnecessary treatment, and misleading research findings. He backs up his clinical observations with the latest evidence from medical research.

Whether you have struggled with the condition for years or have been newly diagnosed, Healing Hypertension is a book that offers unprecedented hope and new choices to every person with high blood pressure.

Introducing a landmark, mind-body approach for overcoming high blood pressure

"Dr. Mann's pioneering book is a precious gift to the millions who suffer with hypertension." —John E. Sarno, M.D. author of Healing Back Pain and The Mind-Body Prescription

"In Healing Hypertension, Dr. Samuel Mann pushes the boundaries of medicine by demonstrating the emotional components of hypertension, one of the most serious health problems of our day. Healing Hypertension shows that it is not enough to attend to our physical bodies; we must look to our emotional life as well if we expect to be healthy and whole. This is an immensely important book." —Larry Dossey, M.D.
