Summary
Several hundred individuals who believed they were suffering from environmental illness have been evaluated or treated by Herman Staudenmayer since the 1970s. Staudenmayer believed the symptoms harming his patients actually had psychophysiological origins - based more in fear of a hostile world than any suspected toxins contained in the environment. Staudenmayer's years of research, clinical work - and successful care - are now summarized in Environmental Illness: Myth and Reality
