    Dr. Sarno’s books such as Healing Back Pain introduced many of us to TMS and
    pain being caused by our repressed emotions. Many of us have become pain-free
    by reading them and discovering those painful emotions that developed into anger
    and built up into rage.

    In this 15-minute video, Dr. Sarno explains it all and how we can heal,
    and great as his book is, seeing him and listening to him talk about TMS makes
    it all come very clear to everyone. He is interviewed by a man who hurt his back
    while moving scenery for the television series “All in the Family,” but the pain
    really was caused by his repressed emotions.

    Dr. Sarno says, “When the brain becomes aware of certain psychological difficulties,
    it automatically tries to have us avoid dealing with those emotional issues,
    so it creates a physical symptom. It does that so your attention will be directed
    to your body rather than to your mind.” It’s the unconscious mind’s way of
    helping us discover the psychological reason for our pain.

    He suggests, “Don’t think of the pain physically. The only way to deal with this is

    Once I accepted that 100 percent, I healed from severe back pain.

    Thank you, Walt! We bought the full DVD of Dr. Sarno's lecture, which is wonderful. What I appreciate about this one you posted is that it is like the Cliff Notes version of what TMS is all about. Something that I can listen to on a daily basis in between work calls and emails to keep me thinking on the right track.

    I too think the video is like Cliff Notes. Short and sweet and says it all.

    Here's a very cute new dog photo:
