    Dr Sarno helped me in a very tough time, his work was the reason i made it through that tough time.

    What a legend, such a genuine person.

    Back in the 90's I bought Healing Back Pain for around $8. It is the best investment I have ever made in my life. Dr. Sarno saved me and my marriage. Rest in Peace Dr.
    I made a promise to myself long ago that I will try my best to spread his message to as many people as I can. I think it is the least I can do to thank him.
    Thank you Dr. Sarno.

    Wow... What a Beautiful life.
    I never ever met Dr. Sarno and yet his prescriptions and directions have been the most important ones ever given to me. I think of him often when I am at work crawling around on the floor for hours, climbing three stories in the sky and Playing hard in my recreational life. My life felt all but snuffed out when I was bitterly depressed and despondent at age 32. This Fall will be 20 years of a hard living pain-free life. Dr Sarno will be remembered a long time...even my children have been instructed to be on the lookout for TMS and they overcame their 'growing pains' and such nonsense.... and The Good Dr. Lives On.

    Thank you for your life's work Dr.

    much respect, Marc Richards aka Baseball65

    I found out about him 12 years ago searching in the library for a book on back pain and I read his. Changed my life!

    I will always be grateful to him for not only his compassionate help but having the courage to stand alone when all else in his field stood against him.

    I just received an email about this :( RIP Dr. Sarno, you've changed the lives of many!

    I remember discovering his book on Healing Back Pain last January after months of persistent sciatica and back/hip pain that stopped me from exercising and made me depressed, confused and hopeless. Reading up on how I might never exercise again due to a slipped disk, I was in a very bad place mentally considering how active I was before. Within a matter of days after discovering Dr. Sarno and TMS, I was healed and back to working out. It was like a miracle. I still can't believe it. Now even when I get other pain (like stomach) I can make it go away by realizing it's TMS.

    Dr. Sarnos, I can't express my gratitude to you -- my only regret is not being able to meet you and personally thank you. RIP friend.

    Truly my hero... I only hope that his work will not be forgotten, who knows, maybe now that he has passed away, more professionals will actually be interested in conducting more research about his theories.

    I thank God for the audacity, courage and love of this great man. He gifted us with the knowing to lift civilization's curse and to trust who we are in our wild entirety; to be fully human, fully alive. What a glorious touchstone for healing and for life.

    May John Sarno rest in the most beautiful of peace, may his legacy bloom in the hearts and minds of every soul his words touch.

    Back in 1983, when I was 29 years old I was experiencing terrible back pain and after visiting numerous orthopedists was told I had degenerated discs and needed back surgery. I was a healthy, active, athlete who was at a potentially a turning point of my life. Through God's blessing someone told me about this Dr. Sarno who was doing miraculous work with mind body medicine. Well, I attended his seminars and as they say the rest is history. I had visited Dr. Sarno a couple of times for follow ups, but suffice it to say I am now 62 and I have led a wonderful and very active life .....well...... because of him. There are not words to express my gratitude to this man for giving me back my life. He always said that he would not be appreciated or fully validated until long after his death. I believe he was right about that as well and I will await his overdue accolades.

    Dear friends and mourners,
    Reading this thread today feels like attending the memorial of an old friend. We gather here to mourn and celebrate the life of a man who has deeply affected our entire life since meeting him. We read down and see the "faces" of other friends and we grab ahold of them for a hug (see likes on their post). We see the new member we read of the other day and we hope they continue the journey Dr. Sarno led us on. We read these posts and we laugh and cry. And we learned right here to go ahead and cry. To feel our sadness and our joy because of this amazing man. We who have tms don't have back, foot, knee pain, gi issues etc, we have a feeling expressed by our mind in our bodies. Today my mind is so very sad, and I thank you friends for coming together with me to express it, not suppress it.

    With love and sorrow and joy for the man and friend, John Sarno,

    Dr. Sarno was one of the greatest doctors in the world and he will truly be missed. He has helped so many people get their lives back and live to the fullest. The first time I read The Mindbody Prescription, I knew he understood the body better than any other doctor I had come across. He has left behind the greatest gift to those suffering with chronic pain. R.I.P Dr. Sarno.
