This book resonated with me on very many levels. It is compassionate, wise and utterly convincing.

a doctor who confirms 'the biology of belief' and 'molecules of emotion' by viewing his own patients - very perceptive. "you are what you think"."Stress, toxic emotions and non-serving beliefs held in the sub-concious will create dis-ease in the body and lead to chronic illnesses.
every doctor and patient should read this book.

Fascinating book, pretty heavy emotionally so be prepared to read it, because basically it says that we are even more *!@#-up than we know, and it's time to make some fundamental changes.
He assigns much of the blame to Western civilization, and if you doubt it, he provides some compelling evidence.
One criticism I might make is that I wonder if environmental toxins play more of a role in emotional stress and disease, it would have been nice if the author addressed that topic. Whether you agree or not, very interesting to read and well-explained.

Gabor Mate always brings a fresh look into the topics he covers. It was definitely an eye opener to keep the stress levels down and to display your anger in a productive manner. But his profile of personalities and their corresponding auto-immune illness is riveting. I only wish all doctors showed his level of compassion for the emotional aspect relating to illness.
