I suffered from Rheumatoid Arthritis from the age of 17. I'm not 38 and I finally beat this thing with the help of John Sarno. Hooray!!! I started with the Sarno books and one by Lissa Rankin called Mind over Medicine. The light went on. I realized that the pain got worse when I was stressed. The pain and other symptoms decreased by about 35 percent and I was on my way. I needed additional help making the ideas stick. I found the Pain Cure Clinic on-line. They have a medical doctor and coaching staff in Boulder but I just did two Skype sessions (1.5 hours each). That was all I needed. The books and the coaching allowed me to unlearn all the wrong information I had been served by the medical establishment. I am happy to be totally pain free. But I am still a little angry about having been lied to by my doctors for so many years. As David Cassidy said on his death bed a few days ago, his last words - "So much wasted time".
