    But it is interesting how close the second treatment modality described in this article, "Multi-Disciplinary Treatment of Lower Back Pain," comes to long-term TMS healing, which is, as Steve Ozanich describes it, holistic and multi-faceted and often includes, meditation, journaling and various Power Therapies like EFT and EMDR. If you don't get a classic Sarno "book cure" after reading Healing Back Pain you often have to do some more mental and environmental homework to resolve deep-seated problems in the psyche that are supplying the "tension" driving the TMS symptoms. This sort of "homework" necessary for many of us to fully heal from TMS also involves many of the same modalities included in the "Multi-Disciplinary" approach:
    • Physical—including de-conditioned and weak muscles, nerve irritation, etc.
    • Emotional—including depression, anxiety, anger, etc.
    • Cognitive—such as negative thoughts, pessimism, hopelessness, etc.
    • Environmental—such as loss of job, financial problems, etc

    Bruce, it was good hearing you on the call-in last night.
    You did an excellent job of summarizing the introduction to Herbie's and my book.
    There's a lot in it, but you condensed it very nicely. Thank you.

    It took some time for me to do the mental work such as journaling but it sure helped.

    I did the journaling about 3 times in a row, Walt, and each time I identified the same list of stressors. Okay, now I know what's bugging me. However, that didn't help as much as just chilling out and relaxing. Cool is the rule!

    I think it's easy to reach the same stresses through journaling. That happened to me, too.
    I guess I decided myself which were the most important.

    Then I let it go. I forgave everyone and myself. I remember from the Bible
    that God forgave us and we don't have to keep asking him for that.

    I love relaxing. When I meditate for just a few minutes I tend to fall asleep.
