Why We Get Sick
“Illness is not to be battled with. It is to be come to terms with , understood, enquired into to see what its message is and from that perspective illness is a potential teacher.”
Dr Maté, who many regard as the world’s leading expert on the role of trauma in child development and the role mind-body connection plays in illness and health, shares his insights into how disease can be the body’s way of saying “no” to that which the mind cannot or will not acknowledge.
He weaves together scientific research, case histories and his own insights and experience to enlighten and empower individuals to promote their own healing and that of those around them.
