The Mind~Body Prescription. By John Sarno, MD. Book Summary. Dr John Sarno is a rehabilitation specialist based at the Rusk Rehabilitation Institute in New. The MindBody Syndrome TMS - Description and Equivalences - by Marc Sopher, . The Mindbody Prescription: Healing the Body, Healing the Pain by John E. The New York Times bestselling guide to a healthy and pain-free life. Musculoskeletal pain disorders have reached epidemic proportions in the United States.
The book seems very psychoanalytic to me -- to me, needlessly so. It talks a lot about "rage" and you might not be a person who really perceives that you're feeling "rage" I'm not. But on the other hand, the book "works" so I'm not sure that anyone necessarily needs to accept a psycholanalytic explanation. I'm a nice-guy self-denier who probably, if I'm really honest with myself, truly loves to help people but doesn't enjoy moving pianos at 2 a.
For me, all I had to do is, every time my back started to twinge, ask myself to think hard about what I'm feeling, what's bothering me. I say it to myself -- I don't even have to go around refusing to move people's pianos.
I just have to say to myself something like "I really don't like getting up at 2 a. I would rather stay in bed. I wish there was some other time -- not on Christmas, not during a blizzard -- when we could move the damn piano.
I also ask my brain to stop my back from hurting, and it does. Then I go about my business.
But there's no need for a psychoanalytic explanation, in my opinion, any more than there's a need for a psychoanalytic explanation for a blush or a phantom limb pain. We don't have to understand it for it to work. Gravity always "worked" whether or not we understood it. Apparently checking in with your own emotions, acknowledging them, and asking your brain to stop sending pain messages also works.
I don't quite understand it, but -- like gravity -- it's very powerful. So -- like every other idea you encounter in life: Take what works for you, and leave the rest. I've read a bunch of other good books on this topic now too, by this author and others. Only the first five chapters is available on Kindle, though, and I've ordered a hard copy of the rest of the book, so I can't review the whole thing yet. I wish every doctor who sees patients with back pain would read this book.
I wish everyone with persistent back pain would read this book and give the ideas a try. I wish tons of research were being done on this phenomenon. I wish I had come across this book 20 years ago. Thank you Sarno!!!!!! Paperback Verified Purchase. There are few moments in your life when it can completely change like switching on a light.

Reading this book was truly one of those events in my life. I now look at everything in terms of mindbody and TMS. I think of my life in terms of before I read this book and after. Getting a migraine was another light switch moment. One night when I was 32 I had a pounding migraine and it never went away.
I tried everything you can possibly imagine.
My whole life revolved around my migraines and the prevention or suffering of them. Once I read this book I knew I had the answer. Like many other people I saw myself on every page. I did some googling and found the tmswiki. I've been following the approach for about a year and a half and can proudly say that I have my life back.
I went from having about 3 full blown migraines a week, sometimes lasting 9 days in a row to having maybe one a month. I even go months without having one. I know that one day I will not even think of them any more but that time will come. I try to not put too much pressure on myself any more.
It also cured my anxiety, chronic neck pain, allergies, and asthma. This book is so much more than just for back pain. If you suffer from anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, or stomach issues it also helps.
My primary doctor examined me while at my yearly physical and assured me that there is no need to see a specialist. I knew this but, his observations assured me of what I already knew.
Please understand that although I work in the field, it does not necessarily mean that I believe in it. My entire existence in the last 6 years has enveloped some kind of healing modality.
I have had some trauma another story and gradually, my back pain has escalated to the point that it consumes me.
John E. Sarno
When I started working in the field of physical therapy, I began having issues with my feet to the point where it hurt to walk. Guess what I do all day as a physical therapy Tech? I walk and run all day long! It never stays in the same place but up until the reading of this book, I have not been able to grasp why.
Why would my pain travel from one place to another which rendered me suspicious of any kind of diagnosis?! Even if you told me, I would not buy into it. You could have told me it was MS or Fibromyalgia or some other disorder and it would not have mattered because deep down, I knew that something was going on in my body and somehow, I knew that I was okay. I could not explain it and even if I did, I was met with those who would cock their head sideways, like some confused puppy trying to understand what you just said; I knew there was another answer to all of my symptoms and questions.
Even though I knew, it took this book to validate that for me. If this book gave me anything at all, it was the assurance that I am okay. I eat well. I am active. I practice mindfulness and meditation.
I can grasp living in the Now and I embrace each moment as some magical manifestation of this magnificent life. I truly love to write and journaling opened up a porthole of creativity that unleashed something within me that was able to break free and yet, I still had pain. There were days that I had a break from the pain and I could not tell you why.
It was always a mystery to me that left me feeling frustrated. Why would today I feel better than yesterday? I got tired of talking to someone who might understand my pain because guess what?!
NO ONE!!! If this book gave me anything and everything it is this: My pain is an illusion. It is not real even though it feels that way! It can be healed! I do not have to buy into the mind game that my body is distracting me from identifying what my feelings are and where the pain is being directed to. I get that now. I am normal! There is nothing wrong! There is hope! I started journaling in an enhanced way. Instead of trying to write my inner musings down in a way that is pleasant to read; making sure that I corrected all of my spelling and my sentences were punctuated to reflect my true feelings, I started unleashing the beast.
Yes, even my journaling needed to be perfect. I never allowed myself to misspell a word or put punctuation in the wrong place.
I must be a bad person! I had a 20 minute journaling session where something broke loose and when I was finished letting it out, I went about my day. The lovely thing is, my pain has been subsided today. Because these disorders are very specific, they can be accurately diagnosed and successfully treated. The Tension Myositis Syndrome is currently the most common emotionally induced disorder in the United States, and probably in the Western world. Since the publication of Healing Back Pain, other painful conditions of significant public health importance have emerged.
They, too, are manifestations of TMS. The book is laid out in three parts. Part I is a discussion of the psychology that induces these physical maladies, and it includes a chapter that might be called a bridge, for it describes the psychoneurophysiology of psychogenic processes: After traversing this bridge which sounds more formidable than it is , Part II takes up the various emotionally induced physical maladies, beginning with TMS, the disorder that introduced me to the world of mind-body medicine, and including such ailments as the common disturbances of the gastrointestinal tract, headaches, allergies and skin disorders.
For those who are interested, an appendix covers the more academic aspects of the mindbody psychosomatic process. A word of caution to the reader: What follows is a description of my clinical experience and the theories derived from my work. No one should assume that his or her symptoms are psychologically caused until a physician has ruled out the possibility of serious disease.
