    Everyone should listen to the October 30th episode of Eddy Lindenstein's "The Mind And Fitness Podcast" featuring his interview with David Clarke, MD.

    Seriously. The interview is jam-packed with vital information. Listen now.

    So many things, @Forest!

    First, I might as well explain up front (as of course you know full-well) that Dr. Clarke was developing his term Stress Disorders pretty much while Dr. Sarno was developing his term TMS. Dr. Clarke explains that they are the same thing, and also describes how a group of mindbody professionals started getting together in 2010 or so, initially working to find a universal phrase that would accurately comprehend this growing field of medicine, and coming up with the term PsychoPhysiologic Disorders.

    Great things discussed in the interview:
    The original ACE study and use of ACE questions to treat PPD.
    The case for why chronic Pelvic pain is a PPD condition, including imaging studies similar to Dr. Sarno's, showing how there are lots of women with endometriosis, cysts, etc. who have NO pain.
    The case for Gastrointestinal symptoms as PPD (Dr. Clarke is a gastroenterologist by specialty)
    Childhood experiences and how non-traumatic childhoods can still produce chronic health problems in adults. When faced with a chronic pain sufferer who says "my childhood wasn't that bad, I managed to get through it" a practitioner should be asking "Would you want your child to be brought up in your childhood home?"
    Raising children with PPD awareness.
    Recognition (in agreement with theories many of us first saw proposed by Dr. Gabor Mate) that illnesses such as auto-immune conditions and cancer can definitely result from a lifetime of emotional stress.
    The importance, YET AGAIN, of engaging in some form of writing things down.
    The importance of self-care - as in, caring for oneself enough to allow for self-care.

    And more.
