This book gives too much credence to the "it's in your head" school of medicine but, as someone with a chronic illness which is "poorly understood", I am of the firm opinion that if medical science sucked less, there would be a lot fewer people reading this book. ( )

Dr. Gabor Maté is an interesting, albeit controversial, character, who has found popular fame in later years as a self-declared trauma specialist (prior to he was a GP before working in the area of addiction for many years). I've listened to one of his podcasts, and was interested in reading this book as I deal with stress pretty poorly and firmly believe it's at the root cause of the IBS I suffer with.

This is a hugely interesting book, which I would caveat with the point that I have no way of fact checking the science he claims supports his theories. In each chapter he covers a wide myriad of diseases and conditions, including MND (or ALS, if you're North American), digestive diseases such as Chrohn's and ulcerative colitis (plus IBS), cancer (in particular bowel and melanoma), MS and arthritis. Whilst Maté believes there are particular nuances with each, a common theme is that he believes people's emotions (or rather their handling of them) have a part to play in how likely you are to get certain diseases and your prognosis once you have them.

It certainly doesn't seem beyond the realms of possibility to me that stress (or lack of effective stress management or outlet) could play a key role in the development of disease. Maté goes a step or two further, suggesting that certain personality types are more likely to develop specific diseases. For example, MND / ALS patients he suggests have been widely reported by specialists in this area to commonly have a very nice / amenable persona, always putting on a bright face and not wanting to be any bother. For melanoma patients (which was of personal interest to me), Maté talks of how it was in relationship to melanoma that led to the development of the notion of a "Type C" personality, a combination of character traits more likely to be found in those who develop cancer than in people who remain free of it.

Type C personalities have been described as "extremely cooperative, patient, passive, lacking assertiveness and accepting... the Type C individual, in our view, suppresses or represses 'negative' emotions, particularly anger, while struggling to maintain a strong and happy facade".

All very interesting, and I can certainly personally tick a number of those boxes off quite easily, but is that the power of suggestion? If other adjectives had been used would I have automatically been drawn to identify with those?

It's up to the individual reader to determine how much they do or don't agree with what Maté has to say in this book. Whilst I can't vouch for how well it scientifically stands up, I do believe that stress is behind many diseases, so whilst I still question some of Maté's statements, I'm interested in what he has to say.

At the end he covers 7 A's of healing: acceptance, awareness, anger, autonomy, attachment, assertion, affirmation. I didn't find any silver bullets to becoming better at handling stress from this chapter, but there's certainly enough of interest in the rest of the book to lead me to do my own further research in how to get better at this.

There will be many who strongly oppose the sweeping generic statements relating to the diseases and conditions covered, but in all I found this to be a really interesting book. Maté may not be 100% correct in his assertions, but I do believe there is more than a grain of substance to his arguments.

4 stars - a popular science book well worth a read. ( )

> QUAND LE CORPS DIT NON, de Dr Gabor Maté - Éd. de l’Homme. — Comment peut-on encore nier que notre corps, nos émotions, nos croyances et nos comportements (visibles et invisibles) s’influencent les uns les autres, et que le résultat de leurs interactions puisse être un grand bonheur... ou l’irruption d’une maladie comme le cancer ou la sclérose en plaque ? La psycho-neuro-endocrino-immunonologie le démontre par A + B. Depuis 1965, les fondements de cette “pluridiscipline” futuriste n’ont fait que se renforcer. Mais l’establishment médical, voué à une spécialisation telle, que la vision de l’être entier lui devient inaccessible, continue de nier le rôle déterminant des émotions refoulées et du stress chronique dans le déclenchement des maladies. Présenté par un pur scientifique, ce dossier pourrait être aride. Raconté par le docteur Gabor Maté, il devient aussi passionnant et émouvant qu’un grand roman d’investigation dans les profondeurs de l’âme. Médecin de famille pendant vingt ans, travaillant aujourd’hui dans un grand centre de soins palliatifs à Vancouver, Gabor Maté sait nous fait partager son propre cheminement : personnel - depuis le ghetto de Budapest où il est né en 1943 - et professionnel - dans cette Amérique, qui est à la fois le temple de la fermeture et le siège de la révolution holistique en cours. Avec sept clés : l’acceptation, la prise de conscience, la colère, l’autonomie, l’attachement, l’affirmation générale et l’affirmation de soi. Une prodigieuse traversée. (Patrice van EERSEL)

Narrated by Daniel Mate. Recommended by a firefighter who supports traumatized colleagues. Sometimes the connections the author made between stress and illness seemed too convenient and unsupported to me (ALS sufferers tend to be "nice" people, for one) but I do believe that stress can have a physical impact on the body. It got me thinking about analyzing my past and upbringing and how it could potentially affect me. An interesting point: people can have cancer cells that never activate, so why do they differ from others with the same cancer cells that DO activate. Note: 7 A's of healing: Acceptance, awareness, anger, autonomy, attachment, assertion, affirmation. ( )

An important book for anyone who wants to avoid getting, or heal from, serious health problems as we grow older. Necessary reading to understand how our body and health is connected to our thoughts and experiences. ( )
