What a pain in the A**!

Sarno MindBody Prescription

Dr. John E. Sarno's Healing Back Pain is a New York Times best seller that has helped over 500,000 readers. Continuing the research since his ground-breaking book, the renowned physician now presents his most complete work yet on the vital connection between mental and bodily health....

Musculoskeletal pain disorders have reached epidemic proportions in the United States, with most doctors failing to recognize their underlying cause. In this acclaimed volume, Dr. Sarno reveals how many painful conditions-including most neck and back pain, migraine, repetitive stress injuries, whiplash, and tendonitis-are rooted in repressed emotions... and shows how they can be successfully be treated without drugs, physical measures, or surgery. His innovative program has already produced gratifying results for thousands of patients. The Mindbody Prescription is your invaluable key to a healthy and pain-free life.

**I can honestly say reading Mind Body Prescription revolutionized my life. In the late 90s I suffered from chronic back pain to the point of missing work and many beloved activities. I read his book and accepted TMS (his yet his simple brilliant understanding of the root causes to these debilitating sensations). I was sceptical yet hopeful and found that when applying his suggestions they worked. Making the connection of the origins of somatic symptom pain led to my no longer was in bondage. This understanding can be applied to not just chronic back issues but other illnesses that our plaguing our society today. I want to share how important it is to acknowledge that there is no pathology inherent in this concept. His humane approach recognizes that the link within the mind body is powerful. The desire to circumvent discomfort is an unconscious decision. This underlying drive in no way suggests that the person is faking. The pain is real and through the study of TCM years later his theory corroborated my own experience.

**The road to freedom has been a non-linear one for me. It was not until years later and further practice and experience that I was able to also make the connection and be released from migraines and Irritable bowel syndrome. Although this method of letting go of structural fault was challenging to accept at the beginning the acceptance of this was extraordinary.
