   I wish I could buy this book for everyone who ...
I would like to buy this book for everyone who has ever experienced chronic pain. I don't have time to write a long review for this book, but I will say that I went from being in pain for years with a verified spine injury that would flare up occasionally to being completely pain-free almost over night. I can ride a bike several times a week, I can sit for hours without pain, and I can walk miles. During the school year, I teach 6th grade and run around my classroom every day. I have the tools to address a backache if I sense it. Purchase this book and read it with open mind. It could change you. I would like to thank Dr. Sarno.
   Works 100%!!!!
I had a bulging disc that caused neck pain for over 3 years. On the day I decided that there was no cure for this other than a surgery, I found this book on Amazon. The Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee heard from Dr. Sarno about his back pain. I was free of neck pain from the next day. I read the book and helped a lot. I have a masters degree in Engineering and a very science oriented person. If you think you are the smartest person in the world, please read this book, even if you don't know the full scientific explanation. The eloquence of human speech is not enough to express my gratitude.
   You can heal your back
The first edition of this book was read by me over a decade ago. I had a back issue and a friend was going to have surgery for it. I forgot about the book I gave away. I wouldn't give in to X-Rays and an MRI for what I believed to be an emotional response to events in my life at the time. I always remembered the name Dr. Sarno. It took less than half the book to resolve my back problem. The first step in effecting change is realizing our emotional and physical wellbeing is tied together. Dr. Sarno makes sense. You are ready for this book if you believe in your body's ability to heal itself.
   Body effects mind mind effects body
There is a lot of truth to the book. Body also effects mind. If someone has bad skin, they need to eat a good diet of real foods and exercise as well as deal with their emotions. For back pain, people need to exercise, have good posture, and eat right. People act in systems and family therapy can help. Overall, the book is helpful.
It seems to deal in magic rather than science. There is no data on effectiveness. The author says that back pain is caused by what he says is the cause. There is no clue as to what to do after you find the argument convincing.
Everyone has the ability to become symptom free from their back and neck pain using their mind and all treatments should be stopped. I couldn't even walk, but I loved the resume physical activity. I assure you there is no way I will be able to overcome my neck and back issues by only using my mind. A stupid book makes assumptions about back and neck pain. Some of us have lost our lives due to back and neck pain and there is notjing wrong with alternative treatments. I will not wait it out when it is torture. It's rediculous. I want to try non-Invasive treatments that work.
   anecdotal at best. don't waste your time
The author only presents a novel idea. His first requirement to recovery is to abandon all other professionals since he believes they are rubbish and with full faith believe that his method will make it happen. He doesn't reveal his method other than to tell stories of how people filled with rage and anxiety solved their emotions and brought about cures. His opinion is that the release of rage and anxiety will cure your back pain. My kids still believe in the tooth fairy and Santa Clause, but they haven't been able to fulfill their dreams. A faulty foundation is more likely to cause back pain than a sound foundation. It shouldn't be hard to comprehend. I apologize that I didn't spend enough time with this book. Don't waste yours!
   It’s amazing, worked for me!
This book will help you if you have back pain. I had back pain for many years. After buying the kindle version, a third of the way through my pain disappeared. I don't know what else to say. Purchase it!
