About Dr. Samuel Mann

Dr. Mann is a physician, researcher, and author specializing in the management of patients with challenging forms of hypertension at New York Presbyterian Hospital and Weill Cornell Medical College. He has published numerous papers in leading medicine, hypertension and psychology journals.

Though a faculty member at a prestigious medical institution at the forefront of heart health and traditional medicine, he offers an important new and radically different understanding of the mind/body connection that goes beyond decades-long traditional schools of thought.

His pioneering new book, Hidden Within Us; A Radical New Understanding of the Mind-Body Connection conveys, in very accessible language, the relevance of this new understanding to many highly prevalent chronic medical conditions, whose cause and treatment have remained inadequately understood. Examples include hypertension (certain forms), chronic fatigue syndrome, migraine, autoimmune diseases, inflammatory bowel diseases, chronic pain syndromes, and others.

Healing Hypertension book by Samuel J Mann
Healing Hypertension: A Revolutionary New Approach

Mann SJ. Wiley, New York, 1999.

A pioneering approach to overcoming high blood pressure. If you are one of the millions of people diagnosed with high blood pressure, this groundbreaking book can change your life.

This book explains:

  • how you can tell whether or not your high blood pressure is related to emotions
  • how to find the medication best suited for you, and when to reduce or eliminate unnecessary medication
  • how exploring “hidden” or repressed emotions can reduce your blood pressure and the need for medication

This book helps you make sense of your high blood pressure while offering new choices for controlling it.

Hypertension and You by Dr. Samuel Mann
Hypertension and You: Old Drugs, New Drugs, and the Right Drugs for Your High Blood Pressure

Mann SJ. Rowman & Littlefield, New York, 2012.

In this book, Dr. Mann identifies the drugs most likely to have side effects and those that can be used in their place. He describes the shortcomings of some of the new drugs, while also introducing readers to some excellent old drugs that are woefully underused as a result of the publicity blitz surrounding the new, expensive ones.

This book shows how medications can be prescribed more wisely to achieve better results, by individualizing drug selection to best match the causes of the patient’s hypertension. It provides patients with the knowledge they need to capably discuss their medications with their health care providers, and, working with their physician, get onto the medications that are right for them.
