The cost of hidden stress


AUTHOR: Gabor Mate


Can a person literally die of loneliness? Is there a connection between the ability to express emotions and Alzheimer's disease? Is there such a thing as a 'cancer personality'?

Drawing on deep scientific research and Dr Gabor Mate's acclaimed clinical work, When the Body Says No provides the answers to critical questions about the mind-body link - and the role that stress and our emotional makeup play in an array of common diseases such as arthritis, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, irritable bowel syndrome and multiple sclerosis.

With dozens of case studies and stories including those of Lou Gehrig, Betty Ford and Lance Armstrong, Gabor Mate reveals 'The Seven A's of Healing'- the principles for healing and prevention of illness from hidden stress.

'Gabor Mate, MD, skillfully blends recent advances in biomedicine with the personal stories of his patients to provide empowering insights into how deeply developmental experiences shape our health, behaviour, attitudes, and relationships. A must read.'
-Bruce Lipton, PhD, author of The Biology of Belief

'Gabor Mate's connections - between the intensely personal and the global, the spiritual and the medical, the psychological and the political - are bold, wise and deeply moral. He is a healer to be cherished.'
-Naomi Klein, author of No Logo and The Shock Doctrine

' An enthralling exploration of the relationship between stress and disease ... Mate probes deeply into the life histories and psyches of his many patients ... What emerges is nothing short of a revelation ... When the Body Says No has the power to change medical thinking.'
-The Edmonton Journal
