    In this video called "Gerry's Back Pain Cure," television hosts
    inteview Jerry Sandusky, a television sports director.
    He says he was fine until he lifted his newborn son out of a crib.
    Then he felt excruciating back pain that lasted for two years,
    despite all kinds of medical treatment.

    Then he read Dr. Sarno's book, Healing Back Pain, and changed
    his way of thinking, that his back pain was not caused by anything
    structural, but by his mind. The book taught him the Mindbody
    connection that the unconscious reduces blood flow to a part of
    the body to give us pain that can go away if we discover what
    emotion caused it.

    Sandusky said he realized that the baby, his and his wife's
    second child, "overwhelmed" him. His perfectionist personality made his
    unconscious mind give him back pain so he would confront that
    personality problem.

    Sandusky said he followed Sarno's advice and, through recognizing
    his personality problem, meditation. and deep breathing, he cured
    his back pain himself, just by the way he thought about the cause of his pain.

    He said not only did he become pain-free, TMS knowledge changed his life.
    He became less a perfectionist and more a happy man.

    Can a man and an idea (Dr. Sarno and his TMS concept) change lives?
    Success stories like Gerry Sandusky's affirm that over and over again.
    The Mindbody connection is real. It has been for centuries, but then
    virtually forgotten. Dr. Sarno has brought it back for today's stressful world.
