Herbert Benson, MD  •  William Proctor, JD


Relaxation Revolution by Herbert Benson, MD, and William Proctor, JD, (Scribner, 2010) is the first disease-by-disease guide to enhancing personal health through therapies based on the science and genetics of mind body healing. The strategies described in this book – which are supported by Dr. Benson’s extensive published research at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital – show you how to “switch off” or “switch on” gene activity associated with health and disease. The Benson-Henry Protocol introduced to the general public in Relaxation Revolution can be used to treat various medical problems, including:

  • high blood pressure;
  • anxiety;
  • depression;
  • infertility;
  • insomnia;
  • menopausal hot flashes;
  • many pains, including backaches and headaches;
  • phobias;
  • and many other conditions.

Relaxation Revolution has garnered five-star reviews on Amazon.com. Here is what other experts and media are saying about the work of Benson and Proctor:

“Nearly 35 years ago [Dr. Herbert Benson] became a kind of medical rock star with his bestselling book The Relaxation Response. It outlined a pioneering approach to relieving stress and a host of medical conditions related to it. Today…it is as relevant as ever.”

--Linda Matchan, Boston Globe

“Dr. Benson is truly one of the seminal thinkers bringing the integrated study of the mind and body to western medicine.”

--Dr. Mani Bhaumik, University of California Los Angeles

“Peaceful thoughts really can influence our bodies, right down to the instructions we receive from our DNA.”

--ABC News

“Herbert Benson, MD, is the father of modern mind body medicine. Dr. Benson’s research has demonstrated that the relaxation response is the physiological counterpoint to the fight-or-flight response and serves as a natural antidote to stress.”

--Daniel Redwood, Health Insights Today

“Herbert Benson, M.D. and William Proctor have been enlightening pioneers in their studies…their work can be shared by everyone, not just health-care practitioners.”

--Reverend Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., President Emeritus, University of Notre Dame
