September 2017 Book Linkup

September 2017 Book Linkup. Join us here! |

Do you have a ton of unread books on your shelf waiting to be read? That’s what this linkup is for 🙂 It’s a simple commitment – to finish reading one book per month. You can read more if you like of course, but we’ll just be sharing one book every month here.

How it Works

  • Post a comment on the current month’s linkup stating your chosen book.
  • Write a short reflection about the book after you’ve finished reading it.
  • Add your reflection to the same linkup you commented on, by clicking on the blue ‘Add Your Link’ button below.

A Few Simple Rules:

  1. Only one link per website.
  2. You may mention other books you’ve read, but stick to one reflection of one book choice per month.
  3. Do comment on at least two other blog posts in this linkup if you participate. Helping to spread the word on your social media is always appreciated, but not required.
  4. This linkup starts on the first of every month. It will close a week after each month before midnight. All timings listed are in Singapore time (+8 GMT).
  5. We also ask that you share this main link to at least one of your social media outlets within the same month.
  6. Failure to follow these rules might get you blacklisted from future linkups. Let’s keep it fair for all 🙂

Happy reading and let’s catch up again next month!

    “When the Body Says No – Exploring the Stress-Disease Connection” by Gabor Mate, MD. I started last month but I still have half left . Will try to aim to complete it by this month.

      If you believe our body has the ability to heal itself or likely tried 1001 solutions trying to heal yourself, either from chronic pain or chronic disease, but was unsuccessful, this book may provide you insights into Dr Mate’s clinical practice especially in palliative care. He is one of the few doctors advocating Tension Myoneural Syndrome (TMS), Mind Body Syndrome (MBS) or Psychophysiologic Disorders (PPD). Earlier I read “Healing Back Pain” by Dr John Sarno (he passed away this Aug 2017), he was the father of TMS healing. If you have chronic disease, you might have heard of “psychosomatic”, TMS healers believe it is due to repressed emotions that we get chronic disease, so by fixing the mind, we may fix our disease.

      Dr Mate dived deeper into applying TMS, besides chronic pain, he believes TMS is the reason for other diseases where he chaptered the book into cases, walking through readers with real case examples and supporting materials from studies or interviews covering Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Alzeimer, ALS, cancer, Crohn’s, IBS/IBD, autoimmune like Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) , scleroderma, systemic lupus erythematous (SLE), and even cardiovascular diseases.

      To most of us, TMS sounds as far-fetched as psychosomatic. If you find yourself on the pages of the examples of this book, you may be suffering from TMS. If you would like to explore more on TMS, I listed most resources on my blog
