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.
