When the Body Says No
This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.
In this accessible and groundbreaking book filled with the moving stories of real people medical doctor and bestselling author Gabor Mate shows that emotion and psychological stress play a powerful role in the onset of chronic illness.
From an early age, many of us develop a psychological coping style that keeps us out of touch with the signs of stress. So-called negative emotions, particularly anger, are suppressed. Dr. Mate writes with great conviction that knowledge of how stress and disease are connected is essential to prevent illness in the first place, or to facilitate healing.
When the Body Says No is an impressive contribution to current 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 Mate demystifies medical science and invites us all to be our own health advocates.
