Pioneer of mind body medicine Herbert Benson discusses his book, "The Relaxation Revolution: Enhancing Your Personal Health Through the Science and Genetics of Mind Body Healing," presented by Harvard Book Store. In the 1970s, Dr. Herbert Benson of Harvard Medical School ushered in a new era of understanding in the field of mind body medicine. Coining the term "relaxation response," Dr. Benson identified the body's physiologic reaction that is the exact opposite of the stress (fight-or-flight) response. In the four decades since that initial discovery, Benson and his colleagues have established the first effective therapy to counteract the harmful effects of stress. "The Relaxation Revolution" details Dr. Benson's recent work with colleagues in the field of genetics.
