Overview
2013 Nautilus Award Winner - Silver
Here's a drug-free, side-effect free solution to common stress and mood problems--developed by two physicians. Millions of Americans suffer from mood problems and stress-related issues including anxiety, depression, insomnia, and trauma-induced emotions and behaviors; and most would prefer not to take medication for their conditions due to troublesome side effects, withdrawal symptoms, and disappointing success rates.
Drs. Richard P. Brown and Patricia L. Gerbarg provide a drug-free alternative that works through a range of simple breathing techniques drawn from yoga, Buddhist meditation, the Chinese practice of qigong, Orthodox Christian monks, and other sources. These methods have been scientifically shown to be effective in alleviating specific stress and mood challenges such as anxiety, insomnia, post-traumatic stress disorder, and many others. The authors explain how breathing practices activate communication pathways between the mind and the body, positively impacting the brain and calming the stress response. The enclosed audio program guides readers through the techniques and helps make these breathing practices an ongoing part of daily life.
This book and CD set includes breathing techniques to relieve
- anxiety and depression
- trauma-related emotions and behaviors
- post-traumatic stress disorder
- insomnia
- addiction-related behaviors


It also offers breathing techniques to enhance concentration, peak performance, and personal relationships.
