Dear Dr. Sarno,
Last March I read Healing Back Pain, and it has been responsible for completely solving my 9 and a half year problem with pain. It didn’t happen overnight, but took about 6 months for me to internalize and embrace. I recently went on a 4 day backcountry skiing trip, where you work for every turn. I climbed longer and pushed it harder than I ever have in my life. I truly have my old life back, and am even stronger than I was 10 years ago.
I tried chiropractors, physical therapists, acupuncturists, massage therapists, psychologists, orthopedic doctors, a cranial sacral specialist, a kinesiologist, an Osteopath, a Fibromyalgia MD, a Hypnotherapist, hormone specialist, and half a dozen others. Nothing provided any substantial relief. But now I know that the physical defects that show up on the MRIs are not responsible for all that pain.
I’m also writing to say thank you for a friend who has also identified with TMS and is thrilled to have read your book. She also is getting her old life back. I’m currently in the process of sending your book with a note to past doctors and therapists that might benefit from my story. I hope others find relief from your book. Thank you for your years of hard work!
