Description

 

 

‘It all starts with waking up…to what our bodies are expressing and our minds are suppressing’

Western countries invest billions in healthcare, yet mental illness and chronic diseases are on a seemingly unstoppable rise.

Nearly 70% of Americans are now on prescription drugs.

So what is ‘normal’ when it comes to health?Over four decades of clinical experience, renowned physician and addiction expert Dr Gabor Mate has seen how health systems neglect the role that trauma exerts on our bodies and our minds.

Medicine often fails to treat the whole person, ignoring how today’s culture stresses our bodies, burdens our immune systems and undermines emotional balance.

Now, in his most ambitious and urgent book yet, Dr Mate connects the dots between our personal suffering and the pressures of modern-day living – with disease as a natural reflection of a life spent growing further and further apart from our true selves. But, with deep compassion, he also shows us a pathway to health and healing.
