When the Body Says No

Our next book will be Gabor Maté's second book, When the Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress. It is a passionately argued thesis that stress has a major role in the onset of most chronic diseases. Warmly received by readers and published in eight languages on five continents, When The Body Says No combines the latest findings of modern science with the poignant and compelling stories of many patients, ordinary people and famous. The book has been greeted with both support and controversy in the medical community.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
