Over 150,000 readers of Dr. John E. Sarno's Healing Back Pain have shared a common bond: the discovery that the agony of most back pain—and its cure—has a basis in the mind. Now, thanks to continuing research since the publication of that groundbreaking book, Dr. Sarno explains how other common health problems are created by the mind...and can be cured by it.
The Mindbody Prescription
Pain disorders have reached epidemic proportions in the United States. At the same time, pioneering physicians like Dr. Sarno have identified the primary role emotions play in causing illness. As a result, we stand on the brink of being able to understand and treat many disorders without drugs, physical therapy, or surgery.
The Mindbody Prescription teaches you:
- How emotions stimulate the brain to produce physical symptoms
- How TMS-Tension Myositis Syndrome-is a major cause of back, neck, shoulder, and limb pain
- How repressed emotions can lead to peptic ulcers, colitis, tension and migraine headaches, hay fever, and a host of other ailments
- How new, sometimes disabling pain conditions, like RSD-Repetitive Stress Disorder-carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, and post-polio syndrome are all part of TMS, and can be treated successfully
- How understanding the way your mind and body interact can produce record results.
Your mind and body are one, inextricably linked. You are stronger than you know and have more power over your body than you probably realize. But you must learn how to tap that wonderful potential. That is the goal of The Mindbody Prescription: to provide you with a powerful weapon in the war on pain and disability.
