Books by Samuel J. Mann, M.D.
Dr. Mann’s research and clinical work have focused on two areas: (1) individualized treatment of patients with hypertension and (2) a new and very different understanding of the mind/body connection as it pertains to hypertension and to other medical conditions.
The descriptions below provide further information about his books and convenient links to purchasing them online. His new book A Radical New Understanding of the Mind/Body Connection, upcoming in 2021, will focus on a largely unrecognized and truly revolutionary understanding of the mind/body connection.
Hypertension and You: Old Drugs, New Drugs, and the Right Drugs for Your High Blood Pressure
Dr. Mann believes that with the many excellent medications available to treat hypertension, we should be able to control hypertension in almost everyone, and without side effects. Yet, too often, this is not the case because the medications are not being prescribed as well as they could be.
In this book, Dr. Mann describes how treatment needs to be individualized. In language understandable to lay readers, he reviews the medications and the clues that can tell you which medication is right for you both in terms of controlling your blood pressure and avoiding side effects. This information is crucial, as most patients will be taking their medications for years or decades.
Healing Hypertension: A Revolutionary New Approach
In this book, Dr. Mann tackles widespread misconceptions about the mind/body relationship as it pertains to hypertension. Reviewing the mind/body literature, and conveying his clinical experience, he explains how the usual suspects - stress, anger, and anxiety - despite widespread beliefs, have not been found to be a cause of hypertension. He then moves on to present an alternative understanding of the mind/body relationship, and its relevance to hypertension.
A Radical New Understanding of the Mind/Body Connection
In this upcoming book, Dr. Mann will look at the mind/body connection as it pertains to many medical conditions whose origin remains unclear. In some of these conditions, a mind/body connection has not even been suspected.
Dr. Mann will discuss the failures of decades of mind/body research that has focused on the widespread belief that stress and emotional distress are at the heart of the mind/body connection. He will then present clinical and research evidence that points to the unsuspected role of powerful emotions that we are unaware of. Evidence that opens the door to a new understanding and to new treatment pathways for a large number of medical conditions.
