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.

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!

Needs more research and fewer testimonials

I found the topic compelling; however, Dr. Maté relied heavily on testimonials to convey the themes. I would find it more convincing had he presented more research, and had he gathered his interview data into a qualitative analysis.

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 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.

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.
