Can a person literally die of loneliness? Is there a connection between the ability to express emotions and Alzheimer’s disease? Is there such a thing as a “cancer personality”?
In this talk, Dr. Maté will share his insights into how disease can be the body’s way of saying ‘no’ to that which the mind cannot or will not acknowledge. Employing stories of people such as Lou Gehrig (ALS), Ronald Reagan (Alzheimer’s) and Lance Armstrong (testicular cancer), he will weave together scientific research, case histories, and his own insights and experience to present a broad perspective to enlighten and empower individuals to promote their own healing and that of those around them.
