Description

In When the Body Says No, physician and writer Gabor Maté explores the mind-body link and the connection between stress and disease. Can a person literally die of loneliness? Is there a relationship between the ability to express emotions and Alzheimer’s disease? Is there such a thing as a “cancer personality?”

Drawing on scientific research and years of experience as a practicing physician, Maté provides answers to these and other important questions about the role that chronic stress and one’s individual emotional make-up play in an array of common diseases, such as arthritis, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, IBS, and multiple sclerosis.

Maté carefully explains the biological mechanisms that are activated when stress and trauma exert a powerful influence on the body. He illustrates his ideas with interviews of famous people who've experienced chronic illness (Ronald Reagan, Gilda Radner, Stephen Hawking, and Pamela Wallin), interspersed with intimate life stories collected through his years of practice. Chapters deal with stress, emotional repression, hormones, the "cancer personality," the biology of relationships, and the power of negative thinking. He backs up his claims with compelling evidence from the field, citing many controlled studies that have demonstrated correlations between psychosocial factors and disease.

Maté emphasizes that to decipher the hidden factors in chronic illness is not to blame the victim, and the book is free of assumptions that all illnesses are the result of ego issues. Rather, he provides the opportunity to address the unintentional transmission of stress and anxiety through the body and across generations.

Dr. Maté has a gift for making complicated medical findings accessible for the lay-person, while still relevant to the professional. Both will be grateful for the final chapter, "The Seven A's of Healing," in which Maté presents an open formula for healing and the prevention of illness resulting from hidden stress.

Central message is important and clearly delivered

Gabor Mate has provided examples and a well thought through theory on the myriad of ways the body participates in our stress and reflects our psychological well-being. There are many case examples, which may run together, but do offer many different stories which demonstrate his point. It is critical our compartmentalized medical system develop a deep understanding of the single-system that all of the compartments are a part of. I appreciated how Dr.Mate was careful to remove blame and identified the human reality of what happens when we live in a way that does not respect the needs of our body/mind. The central message in this book is right on point, in my view, and I appreciated hearing him identify it in several major disease presentations.

Gabor Mate has had some controversial messages depending on the audience, some I really support, and some I don't mind leaving behind. One such message I would leave behind is in "Resources" where he promotes Landmark as a reputable organization to go to for personal growth. While there may some value in the materials offered, there are so many mental health support resources that do not include a pyramid/recruitment based structure that it is not necessary to risk being coerced in order to find a healthy community to grow with.

The narration is well done, it is clear he has some insight and understanding of the material and it seems to me he generally delivers it as it was intended.

A note about the audible audio book - several times the recording loops back 20 or 30 minutes and you must skip ahead to continue listening. I see on the audible.com reviews that several people have noted this since 2017. I sent a message to audible and they wanted to know the time stamp for every time it happened and without providing that it is not going to be fixed. If you are up for the task, please get a pencil ready. I am too busy writing this review and continuing on with other audible audio books to complete this task for them. In fact, my body said no. And I listened. I could understand if it was once. But it is nearly every chapter in the second half. It is unfair to the author and the listeners to continue to sell a book that has been identified as glitchy and reflects poorly on audible, in my opinion.

Extremely helpful

My body said "no" in a soft voice 3 years ago and I didn't listen. It became louder to the point of developing Cushings Disease and I am now about to undergo brain surgery.
As I prepare mentally and physically for this, Dr Mate's book has been invaluable to me. I now understand WHY I developed this disease and I am ready to change those patterns. I am certain I won't have a remission, as I transform the detrimental coping habits that are now illuminated for me, thanks to the explanations he has offered in this book.
I recommend it for anyone suffering any disease or wanting to prevent disease from manifesting.
Dr Mate is refreshingly brilliant and a progressive leader and teacher. I am thankful to him for sharing his wisdom.

A truly insightful book

I loved this book and its ability to shine a light on the important parts of humanity that shape us. The medical community often dismiss, disregard or flat out ignore these integral pieces of the puzzle when it comes to disease and illness. Thank you!

great read overall

I enjoyed this book. He very strongly believes that our patterns of behavior have an impact on our health and he has lots of examples. I did skip some of the middle chapters as some of the stories were starting to sadden me. However, his main message is one of hope--we all have the power to deal more effectively with life if we are open to change. Repressed emotions don't have to be take a physical toll. I wish there were chapter summaries or descriptions as I had to do some listening to figure out what the topics of each chapter were. a good read and the narration was well done.

When the Body Says No is excellent.

Dr.Mate makes it easy to understand the science and medicine involved in the stress response and costs of chronic stress. He removes blame and empowers the reader to make change in their lives. Unlike many "self help" books, I listened to When the Body Says No from start to finish. Invaluable!

A potentially life-changing book that absolutely everyone who is I'll or who denies that they have stress should read.

A lot of useful information

Stress is one of those things that we all have and seem to handle in different ways. Now that I realise the damage it is doing I am grateful for the Author taking the time to share his knowledge. I believe that even just being aware of hidden stress in day to day life makes it a little easier to handle.

A bit long but redeemed in the end

Enjoyed it at first, a bit long winded in the middle section - too many chapters with nothing much new. But loved the end - worth reading to the end, could skip a few middle chapters!
Excellent narration.

A MUST

This book is for every living human being. Its a life changing eye opener to our human conditioning and its posible consequences. Also read by Daniel Mate is a plus. His reading has perfect tempo and his voice and tone keep the content humanized and sober.
Totally recommended!

Finally a wholistic view of humans ...

The book discusses the duplicity of humans as mind and body and elaborates on the impact of suppressed emotions on our physical health. Stress will express itself in disease if not dealt with effectively.

An interesting read. I felt the author only went 2/3 of the way though. The spiritual and religious side of us and the interaction with God need to be considered in researching this topic. That - in my view - is what makes a "whole" person.
