Why do more people suffer from mental illness now than ever before? In this episode, Dr. Gabor Maté and Jeff discuss the premise that disease in our society is actually a normal consequence of a toxic social system driven by short-term profits over long-term human health.

In this episode we cover:
- The four psychological needs of healthy children
- Why attachment and authenticity are so important
- How your emotions and immune system are connected
- The social and psychological roots of disease
- Obstacles and pathways to healing
