"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 Price
