    Hi Guys,

    Started my TMS journey years ago and have used the concepts to treat many recurring issues. Headaches, tinnitus, groin/genital pain, back pain...The list goes on and on.

    I usually manage to get myself in a great place after a few months and it's smooth sailing for up to a year until something randomly pops up because i get complacent and stop thinking emotionally during stressful times.

    Lately it has been a lower back injury with sciatica, a few weeks of looking structurally I pick up my Mind body prescription book and a few chapters in the pain starts to move around and before i even finish the book, the pain is almost gone!

    The thing is, when this happens, I almost always get a cold/flu/stomach bug. This time it's a horrible head cold (2 days before i fly out for a 2 week work trip, which is a whole other stressor in my life and I'll be here all day telling you that story haha).

    My question - Has anybody found TMS work to weaken the immune system? Maybe a last ditch effort to keep me thinking physically in the lead up to a stressful event?

    I don't show my face here much since I my inital problems and i usually don't stay around for long because i get ontop of my symptoms so quickly these days! but it's nice to know i have somewhere to vent and to people that understand!
