This book offers profound insights into emotions and disease. Can a person literally die of loneliness? Is there such a thing as a 'cancer personality'. Provocative and beautifully written, "When the Body Says No" provides answers to these and other important questions about the mind-body link in illness and health. Writing for general readers, Dr. Gabor Mate lucidly summarizes the latest scientific findings about the roles stress and individual emotional makeup play in an array of diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, cancer, ALS and more.He explores the reason why, despite a rapidly accumulating body of evidence to the contrary, most physicians continue to treat symptoms rather than persons. And with the help of dozens of moving and enlightening case studies and vignettes drawn from his two decades as a family practitioner, he provides poignant insights into how disease is often the body's way of saying 'no'. Gabor Mate, MD (Vancouver, Canada), has been a family practitioner for twenty years. He was also a long-standing medical columnist for "The Vancouver Sun" and "The Globe and Mail". Scattered, his first book, on ADD, was a national bestseller in Canada.Über den Autor:
