The book discusses the duplicity of humans as mind and body and elaborates on the impact of suppressed emotions on our physical health. Stress will express itself in disease if not dealt with effectively.
An interesting read. I felt the author only went 2/3 of the way though. The spiritual and religious side of us and the interaction with God need to be considered in researching this topic. That - in my view - is what makes a "whole" person.

Enjoyed it at first, a bit long winded in the middle section - too many chapters with nothing much new. But loved the end - worth reading to the end, could skip a few middle chapters!

Written by a doctor, this book is complex but compelling. Mate convinced me to make changes to how I lived and gave me some insight into my own health problems. Recommend for auto-immune disease sufferers who want to make life changes.

This book is amazing. Everyone should read it. It is at the cutting edge of joining psychology (which when I did the a level I found distinctly unscientific) and biology to explain the previously unexplainable.
So many diseases I have been taught were inherited or caused by some carcinogen agent, but really, the things doctors often pronounce with such confidence are so poorly understood. This book actually fills in the gaps and shows why certain people get certain illnesses.
Keep reading to the very end. If you have one of the diseases mentioned in this book, you may start to feel blamed if you don't make it to the final chapters which explain beautifully that disease is basically a psycho-social phenomenon, where the person is a product of many factors previously out of their control.
The good news is once there is knowledge and insight, healing can begin.

If you could sum up When the Body Says No in three words, what would they be?
A must read!
I can't recommend the work of Mate enough. His insight on the effects of childhood trauma in adult life and health is exceptional.
A very thought provoking and thorough exploration. Another fantastic book and great narration. Highly recommend along with In the Real of Hungary Ghosts....
