Description

In When the Body Says No, 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?” Maté provides answers to these and other questions about the role 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.

Drawing on scientific research and years of experience, Maté explains the biological mechanisms activated when stress and trauma exert a powerful influence on the body. He illustrates his ideas with accounts of famous people who've experienced chronic illness, interspersed with intimate life stories collected through his years of practice. Dealing with stress, emotional repression, hormones, the "cancer personality," the biology of relationships, and the power of negative thinking, Maté backs up his claims with compelling evidence, citing many controlled studies that demonstrated correlations between psychosocial factors and disease.
