'The Lottery of Birth' Will Make You Re-Think What It Means To Be FREE (video)
Offering a torrent of mind-expanding ideas, THE LOTTERY OF BIRTH is going to make you think again…
"In When the Body Says No," Gabor Maté writes: “People have always understood intuitively that mind and body are not separable. Modernity has brought with it an unfortunate dissociation, a split between what we know with our whole being and what our thinking mind accepts as truth.” The mind and body are not just connected, but inseparably intertwined, and, Maté believes, certain chronic diseases - ALS, MS, rheumatoid arthritis, breast cancer - are at least in part “an expression of an internal disharmony” brought on by the effects of stress.
The significance of the mind-body connection is not new, but modern medicine has a tendency to split the two. However, in recent years an entire field of research, psychoneuroimmunology, has begun to explore “how the mind… profoundly interacts with the body’s nervous system and how both of them, in turn, form an essential link with our immune defenses.” And it is not such a stretch to see the connection between organic disease and “stress,” a relentless pressure that can twist around the immune system’s protective powers into a “suicidal assault”: what Maté calls “a civil war inside the body”.
It is how Maté defines stress that is so different from mainstream interpretations as to be practically revolutionary. Probing deeply into the life histories and psyches of many patients he has treated during his years as a palliative care physician, he emerges with nothing short of a revelation.
