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:
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.

"It is our hidden emotions, the emotions we do not feel, that lead to hypertension," writes Samuel J. Mann, M.D., physician/researcher and Associate Professor at the Hypertension Center at the New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center. "Becoming aware of our hidden emotions and dealing with them can enable both physical and emotional healing," he adds.
Hypertension, commonly known as high blood pressure, affects 50 million Americans and prompts more doctor visits than any other medical condition. In Healing Hypertension, Mann explains how you can tell if hidden emotions are instrumental in your hypertension (they may not be, if your condition is mainly genetic), and if so, how you can get on the path to healing. Some clues that you may be burdened by hidden emotions include emotional trauma that you think is behind you, a habit of not feeling unwanted emotions, a history of emotional isolation, and childhood abuse or severe family dysfunction. Mann also briefly discusses how hidden emotions can affect other medical conditions such as back pain, headaches, and anxiety disorders. He spends most of the book helping you see that hidden emotions may be affecting your hypertension. The last few chapters address where you can go from there. Numerous case histories personalize the information. --Joan PriceFrom the Publisher:
Healing Hypertension will be a groundbreaking revelation for many of the 50 million Americans suffering from high blood pressure. Presenting a controversial new theory seeking to explain why a cause is never found in 95% of all cases, hypertension expert Samuel J. Mann. MD, argues that many cases are a result of repressed or "hidden" emotions. Drawing on fascinating case studies culled from his treatment of thousands of patients, Mann outlines how readers can determine whether or not hidden emotions could be causing their hypertension. He also offers a unique way to select medications based on the cause of the problem.
