When the Body Says No

Gabor Maté M.D.

Overview

When others share their pain with us, we're likely to empathize with them and advise them to seek out treatment. But when our body cries out for help, we often look the other way and wait for the pain to go away, or take a pill. We've been taught to 'power through it' and to quit complaining. It may work temporarily, but repressing pain actually endangers our health.

When we deny that we have a problem and don't address it, we can make it worse. Dr. Gabor Maté is a retired physician who has chosen to dedicate his life to spreading awareness about health and trauma. In When the Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress, he uncovers the powerful connections between our mental health and physical ailments.

Our minds and bodies aren't two distinct entities. Research has repeatedly shown their intrinsic connection. Unadressed mental stress can actually manifest as a physical disease. However, when we express our emotions and deal with them healthily, we can heal our bodies and release our pain.
