Publisher Description

NATIONAL BESTSELLER In this accessible and groundbreaking book--filled with the moving stories of real people--medical doctor and bestselling author Gabor Maté shows that emotion and psychological stress play a powerful role in the onset of chronic illness, including breast cancer, prostate cancer, multiple sclerosis and many others, even Alzheimer's disease. When the Body Says No is an impressive contribution to research on the physiological connection between life's stresses and emotions and the body systems governing nerves, immune apparatus and hormones. With great compassion and erudition, Gabor Maté demystifies medical science and, as he did in Scattered Minds, invites us all to be our own health advocates.

    " I read this book with a lot of hope. I was frustrated by the seeming lack of hope and development of what people would do when confronted by repressed emotion that comes out as illness. I don't think the author offers much hope and that really bothered me. "

    " Poignant stories are woven together with research in this compelling discussion of the impact of stress on the human body and how it is a major factor in so many diseases of the developed world. If you have a family or personal history with any of these diseases, I highly recommend the read. "

    " I enjoyed reading this book - he is a GP/Psychotherapist and for this book he's interviewed people so you get their stories but also reprots back from studies. His view is that current medicine splits treatment to purely 'body' whereas health can only accurately be thought of in terms of mind-&-body. Coming from a science background I enjoyed all the descriptions of killer t cells, endocrine systems, cortisol etc etc. I think anyone would as it's written very clearly and simply. Plus it's absoultely compelling evidence that stressing our bodies is NOT good for health - and the main stress he is talking about is unresolved/expressed emotion. "

    " Fascinating insight into the relationship between chronic stress and autoimmune diseases such as SLE, MS, ALS, and intractable pain. Inspired me to pick up Jon Kabat-Zinn's "Full Catastrophe Living" again for perusal. "

    " Fascinating. Definitely makes sense that diseases and the like are related to stress and emotional turmoil. "

    " A timely read for me, and really good stuff. Doesn't claim that stress is the only thing that affects our health, but illustrates scientifically and anecdotally that is is surely a considerable factor, along with genetics, environment, and lifestyle. Also outlines some ways to avoid internalizing stress and better consistently manage it. "

    " My brain said No. I couldn't finish it, I was bored towards the end. Good information, but too scientific for me, and each chapter basically said the exact same thing. "

    " Although the premise is interesting: why we develop autoimmune diseases, I thought the stories od different individuals was boring. The best chapter was the last one talking about what is needed to combat illness. "

    " This is an eye opener as to how one's state of mind can affect one's health. Some of it is a bit technical for readers who have very little knowledge of medicine, but well worth a good read. "
