Now in paperback, the bestselling exploration of the effects of the mind-body connection on stress and disease

Can a person literally die of loneliness? Is there such a thing as a ""cancer personality""? Drawing on scientific research and the author's decades of experience as a practicing physician, this book provides answers to these and other important questions about the effect of the mind-body link on illness and health and the role that stress and one's individual emotional makeup play in an array of common diseases.

  • Explores the role of the mind-body link in conditions and diseases such as arthritis, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, IBS, and multiple sclerosis
  • Draws on medical research and the author's clinical experience as a family physician
  • Includes The Seven A's of Healing-principles of healing and the prevention of illness from hidden stress

Shares dozens of enlightening case studies and stories, including those of people such as Lou Gehrig (ALS), Betty Ford (breast cancer), Ronald Reagan (Alzheimer's), Gilda Radner (ovarian cancer), and Lance Armstrong (testicular cancer)

An international bestseller translated into fifteen languages, When the Body Says No promotes learning and healing, providing transformative insights into how disease can be the body's way of saying no to what the mind cannot or will not acknowledge.

Product Description:

Title: When the Body Says No( Exploring the Stress-Disease Connection) <>Binding: Paperback <>Author: GaborMate <>Publisher: Wiley(TP)

Review:

The potential for wholeness and health resides in all of us, affirms Dr Gabor Maté in When the Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress. But disease is often the body's way of saying "no" to what the mind cannot or will not acknowledge, warns the author, who quotes the latest scientific findings about the roles stress and individual emotional makeup play in causing cancer and other chronic illnesses. Maté is a medical doctor and the bestselling author of Scattered. This work offers stories from his own patients in the belief that insight is more helpful to people than advice. Natalie, for example, develops multiple sclerosis after years of marriage to a drunken and emotionally abusive husband. In another case, a 74-year-old man diagnosed with cancer experiences spontaneous remission. His own body mobilised formidable immune responses to defeat the disease. "If we gain the ability to look into ourselves with honesty, compassion and with unclouded vision, we can identify the ways we need to take care of ourselves," says Maté, who invites us all to be our own health advocates by pursuing emotional competence in seven areas: acceptance, awareness, anger, autonomy, attachment, assertion and affirmation. If a link exists between emotions and psychology, he says, not to inform people of it will deprive them of a powerful tool. --Carolyn Leitch, Amazon.ca
