Thanking Dr John Sarno

A few months ago I had never heard of TMS (Tension Myositis Syndrome) or considered the mind body connection in any depth. That is, until I started to get fed up, and worried about, the constant back pain I was experiencing. Listening to a podcast one day, the interviewee mentioned that she had been cured of her own back pain by reading a book. How was this possible?! I immediately grabbed a notepad and pen and made a note of the title and author: ‘Healing Back Pain’ by a Dr John Sarno. I’ve read it too, and it changed my life (no joke)! I have this book to thank for putting me on my own road to recovery.

Dr John Sarno was probably America’s most famous back pain doctor. He died in 2017 at the health age of 93, and thankfully his legacy continues in the form of (among many):

  • Nicole Sachs, LCSW
  • Dr Harold Schubiner
  • Dave Clarke, MD
  • Alan Gordon, LCSW
  • Barbara Kline, LCSW-C
  • Georgie Oldfield, MCSP
  • David Schechter, MD
  • Howard Schubiner, MD
  • Eric Sherman, PsyD
  • John Stracks, MD
  • Peter Zafirides, MD
Dr Sarno argued that chronic pain is actually the result of a psychosomatic process and emotional factors.

Don’t even get me started on this topic! I have so much I want to share with you. If you feel you are suffering from chronic pain (pain that has endured beyond the body’s normal inflammatory and healing process of 12 weeks) anywhere in your body, please get in touch and I will help you! It is my passion, and my mission, to share this work and to cure others as I have cured myself.
