This was not good to watch...saw it on youtube..
I feel so disturbed reading and watching this information on you tube. I made the effort to go see him and paid him lots of money for a consult.
Me too. I saw him years ago, told me my hip wasn't TMS, to get a hip replacement sooner then later--that's been about 15 years ago, still struggling with whether the DX was right for me.
Did you get the hip replacement? Are you still struggling tennis Tom?
They are very few of these so called tms Dr that are worth there salt
Having spoke with a TMS Dr. myself and listening to some of the experiences of others, I agree with this statement. Stick with Dr. Sarno, the original and the best, his books have most of what you need to know anyway. Some of these providers don't even seem to believe in mindbody that much.
Caveat: Dr. Schubiner seems outstanding, though I've never met him.
Yep, I'm inclined to agree with this as well.
I've visited a couple of practitioners and I have always been left with the impression that I know more than them. If you have an understanding of the core theory of TMS/stress illness nobody regardless of their qualifications or status can tell you anything else. I cannot help but feel some people are making an awful lot of cash out of this condition.
I said the same thing years ago....all you need is Sarno Steve O book for the journey and most importantly a clean bill of health from your PCP ...yes there is severe cases which people need therapy but other than those cases ...you is all you need...but I have to say 2-4 session with a tms Therpist is helpful
Agreed. Such a shame.
No hip replacement, that would be the easy way out, 2.5 hours on the operating table, amputation of the upper femur and acetabulum, pound in and glue some new parts, you're walking the same day (with two big guys holding you up) and about six months to a year to get back to playing like you were--seems a bit barbaric to me when all that's needed is a little teflon to replace some worn out cartilage--if that's the problem and it's not TMS. And, then many folks start having problems with their other hip for no rational reason and get that one done too.
I'm struggling if the dx was right, but not with doing anything I want to do that doesn't require sprinting. I've done thirteen marathons prior to "my hip", so don't have any big urge to run a lot, but wouldn't mind being a step or two faster on the tennis court. I just played some real fun tennis today and felt better the more I played. Now for some re-hab in the hot-tub and a run in the pool.
He just brought tms back 20 years for that stunt...omg
Dear god Tom, that sounds like one hell of a nocebo. I greatly admire your tenacity and courage in the face of that. Fifteen years is a damn fine two-figure salute and something you ought derive much faith from. You're not called Tom the Lion for no reason
What price integrity?
I agree completely with your estimation that healing is an inside job. It is such a shame that professional support at it's simplest is a lottery with a hefty price tag. God bless this community for holding each other safe and for sharing their knowledge, experiences and healing.
Sad...my sister has the Back2Life machine and I tried it years ago and it crippled me even worse than what I was feeling at that time......this was before I rediscovered TMS but I'm definitely alittle leary of trying it again, it may perhaps help loosen up tight muscles but I have no desire to try it again. Schechter reminds me of Krusty the Klown from a Simpsons episode when he sold out, who famously said" how could I say NO, they drove up with a dump truck full of money!" ... lol.
