    Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa suffered from terrible back pain in the late 90's. He was days away from having highly invasive surgery on his back when a friend sent him "Healing Back Pain". After he read the book he rapidly improved. As he said at a Senate hearing, he "hasn't had a back pain since". On February 14, 2012, Dr.John Sarno appeared before this Senate Committee on Health, Education and Pensions to address Pain in America: Exploring Challenges to Relief.

    Great video clip. In the same hearing the senator also mentions how a close female relative was cured of terrible fibromyalgia. He is a great believer & a strong advocate.

    I have not but I am very familiar with Lang & Canon's theories which I think are elaborated in the books is what I would guess.

    Lang or Liang as it is sometimes spelled refers to psychologist RD Lang who did research on emotions. I imagine Canon is also someone in a similar field.

    Here is the link to the whole video

    Hope this helps

    This is all great stuff. Especially for those who do not yet believe 100 percent that their pain is from TMS
    and is not caused by anything structural.
