The Wellness Book

The Comprehensive Guide to Maintaining Health and Treating Stress-Related Illness

Millions of readers are familiar with the work of Dr. Herbert Benson and the Mind/Body Medical Institute from his mega-bestselling book The Relaxation Response . With more than 5 million copies in print, it is a classic in the field of mind/body medicine. In The Wellness Book, Dr. Benson has created the definitive resource that shows readers how to maintain health and treat stress-related illnesses, including high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, chronic pain, Parkinson’s Disease, infertility, insomnia, anxiety, symptoms of HIV and cancer, menopause, and more.

The Wellness Book shows readers how to create and control their own well being. Use of the book, in combination with modern medical treatments, will aid in prevention and treatment of a number of illnesses and, according to USA TODAY, “legitimizes the mind/body connection in traditional medicine.”
