    Hi!
    I was cleaning up my desk yesterday when I found a printed articel I had not read yet. It's called "Encoding States: A Model for the Origin and Treatment of Complex psychogenic Pain" by Ronald A. Ruden, M.D., Ph.D.

    Well, could not remember where in the www I found this article but found it very interesting, especially as the author is very familiar with the theory of Sarno and all his books were listed in the bibliography of the articel. So I searched the bibiography of the TMS wiki to see if the article is listed there but didn't found it (perhaps I overlooked it)?

    Well, here's the article:
    http://www.healingthemind.net/Encoding_states_final_1_2_.pdf
    I guess I really had some great insight by reading it and maybe have found the explanation why I am suffering from heel time since 1996 (not "planatar fascitis").

    I googled the author (who is also the founder of the "havening technique" which is similar to EMDR/EFT) and found some further atricle which I have not read yet but will do soon:
    https://havening.org/uploads/Origins_Diagnosis_and_treatment_of_psychogenic_pain.pdf

    I recommend to read the second listed article first because in my opinion it's easier to read and there're less "technical terms" (neuroscience of the brain).

    I really love it that there so many helpful articles and informations available in English, German google searches are not as efficient. One more time I wished I had learnt my English vocabulary at school...so it takes some time to read/understand everything. But it's a great training.

    Hope you enjoy the articles, let me know if it resonates!
