They Can't Find Anything Wrong!: 7 Keys to Understanding, Treating, and Healing Stress Illness
In most patients, the cause of illness cannot be found with medical tests because the symptoms come from hidden stresses in their lives that leave no physical damage. This work features stories to help readers uncover the hidden stresses in their own lives and learn about treatments.

An interesting book on how stress can cause physical symptoms, it primarily consists of stories of patients, what their physical symptom was, how he eventually was able to learn the stress (sometimes decades old) that was influencing it, and approaches that seemed to help. If you aren't interested in reading through all of the examples, skip to chapter 9. I think this would be a good book for doctors to read, especially as an example of how big a role stress can play in a person's health.
The book was written by a Doctor who has compasion and took the time to listen to his patients. He tells about the effects stress can have on your life. The book has given me insight as to the issues I had dealt with for years. The stress from from dealing with the horrific sights that I had seen in law enforcement, left me with health and emotional problems in my life after law enforcement. Great book!
I neither loved this book nor hated it (hence the three stars). The case studies started to get tedious but the information is potentially useful. It is helpful to think of stree illness as a medical possibility but it shouldn't be the go-to diagnosis (which the author openly stated) and we shouldn't think of this treatment as a panacea for all medical mysteries.
