Healing the back pain

Excellent!!!! A must read for everyone who is willing to understand the real nature of back pain and other ailments. It was extremely helpful to me... Thank you.

Take a leap and read this

Although the psychology here isn’t as sophisticated as modern psychology is, this book still resonates. If you feel stuck in chronic pain and have tried many avenues - if you are tired of feeling more and limited physically and like you can’t do things you enjoy - then read this book and see if it resonates. Game changer.

Sarno helped me reclaim my life

I only wish I could personally thank this doctor for his true study towards this awful and painful condition. Thank you Dr. Sarno for making my life better and educating me so that I can see the truth and root cause of my back pain which was not ever discussed by any other Doctor, chiropractor or physical therapist and its 2016 for cripes sake! I was desperate to know more about how the mind affects the body. I had suffered from anxiety and depression. My severe back pain kept me from being able to exercise regularly because I was dealing with excruciating pain. I do have a large herniated disc and the doctors expected that I would be in severe pain. I'm 32 years old and have a perfectionist/ people pleasing personality. I was at to very bottom of the barrel, praying and asking God to help me with this pain. I some how found it on iBooks (divine intervention) and couldn't stop reading it. This book made so much sense to me and truly has changed my life to understand the true root core of the problem which is unfortunately not accepted because there is no money to be made for the treatment.
