We tend to believe that normality equals health. Yet what is the norm in the Western world?

Mental illness and chronic disease are on an unstoppable rise. How did we get here?
And what lies ahead for us?

‘It all starts with waking up… to what our bodies are expressing and our minds are suppressing.’

In this life-affirming book, Gabor Mat̩ connects the dots between our personal suffering and the relentless pressures of modern life Рshowing that ill health is a natural reflection of our disconnection from our true selves. Drawing on four decades of clinical experience, and stories of people transforming their bodies and minds, Dr Mat̩ offers a hopeful pathway to reconnection and healing.
