Overview

When the Body Says No: Exploring the Stress-Disease Connection by Gabor Mate

"Gabor Maté, M.D., skillfully blends recent advances in biomedicine with the personal stories of his patients to provide empowering insights into how deeply developmental experiences shape our health, behavior, attitudes, and relationships. A must read."
Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., author of The Biology of Belief

"The interviewees' stories are often touching and haunting. . . . Maté carefully explains the biological mechanisms that are activated when stress and trauma exert a powerful influence on the body. . . . Readers will be grateful for the final chapter . . . in which Maté presents an open formula for healing and the prevention of illness from hidden stress."
Quill & Quire

"In this important book, Dr. Gabor Maté combines a passionate examination of his patients' life histories with lucid explanations of the science behind mind-body unity."
Richard Earle, Ph.D.

Modern research is confirming the age-old wisdom that emotions are inseparable from our health and physiology. Repressed emotions bring on stress that can lead to disease. In this internationally bestselling book, Gabor Maté draws on cutting-edge science, his decades of experience as a physician, and the stories of famous people including those of Lou Gehrig, Lance Armstrong, Gilda Radner, and Ronald Reagan to examine the role hidden stress plays in an array of diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, and cancer.

When the Body Says No provides transformative insights into how disease can be the body's way of saying no to what the mind cannot or will not acknowledge—and how we can heal.
