THE MYTH OF NORMAL: TRAUMA, ILLNESS & HEALING IN A TOXIC CULTURE by GABOR MATE
Mate dissects how in Western countries that pride themselves on their health care systems, chronic illness and general ill health are on the rise. What is really “normal” when it comes to health? For all our expertise and technological sophistication, Western medicine often fails to treat the whole person, ignoring how today’s culture stresses the body, burdens the immune system, and undermines emotional balance.
In The Myth of Normal, co-written with his son Daniel, Maté brings his perspective to the great untangling of common myths about what makes us sick, connects the dots between the maladies of individuals and the declining soundness of society, and offers a compassionate guide for health and healing.
