What People Are Saying About "Cure Stress"
The “Be Still and Know” exercise has been used with great success by millions of Americans. It is widely relied on by soldiers throughout the United States Armed Forces, either in the form of an Internet download or a compact disc titled “Coping Strategies,” distributed to the military by the nonprofit group “Patriot Outreach.”

The same “Be Still and Know” exercise is also available to the general public as a CD or Internet download – and is now also available on a popular, dedicated audio player called “The Cure Stress Device.”

Regardless of the delivery system – compact disc, download or Cure Stress Device – “Be Still and Know” has proven to be phenomenally effective over the past six decades. Here is what some notable people are saying about it:

"In medical school we're taught to treat symptoms. Cure Stress has the capacity to resolve the root of the symptom for those who are ready."

Richard Tytus MD, BscPhm, CCFP, FCFP, McMaster University

"[Roy Masters] describes for us a meditation exercise which contains in its practice the seed to freeing us from our bondage and slavery to compulsive thoughts and emotions.

Dr. Ron Carlson, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist

"In my own experience as a commander who mobilized and returned thousands of wartime veterans, I have seen soldiers make rapid improvement through use of these CDs. … I reached the conclusion that I didn’t give a damn if I could prove it worked medically, because I know it works.
