Separate hype from health in this eye-opening exploration of our wellness-obsessed world — from stress-induced symptom searching to "miracle cures" on social media, health reporter Casey Gueren digs into what causes health anxiety and the tools we can all use to diminish its power.

If you've ever found yourself Googling symptoms in the middle of the night — and really, who hasn't? — then you've likely experienced health anxiety. Get to the bottom of those complicated feelings with It's Probably Nothing, an exploration of what causes body stress, from wellness fads and tricky marketing to overhyped headlines and a confusing healthcare system, by former health editor (and fellow body stresser) Casey Gueren.

Covering everything from inadequate health education to patient embarrassment, and the deceptive marketing tricks employed by the multi-billion dollar wellness industry, It's Probably Nothing reassures readers that the stress they feel around their health is real and valid — but it doesn't have to be crippling. Using her years of experience as a health editor for major print and digital publications, author Casey Gueren teaches readers the tools to sift through information the way a health reporter would, empowering them to come to their own informed conclusions. Packed with illuminating information, funny personal anecdotes, concrete strategies for coping, quotes from dozens of medical experts, and a foreword by New York Times-bestselling author of The Vagina Bible Dr. Jen Gunter, this book is the perfect companion for navigating our wellness-obsessed world with a little less stress and a lot more information.
