    Edit: the one with Dr. Rashbaum appears below the John Stossel 20/20 TV segment. It does a great job of explaining the fundamentals of TMS. It's all anyone should need to understand TMS theory. TMS isn't rocket science, but there is a need to understand the psychological process by which the unconscious creates the pains, thereby overcoming the misdiagnosis of allopathic medicine.

    God Bless Ira Rashbaum. This talk may be the most elegant explanation of TMS that I have heard to date. I'd encourage everyone to listen to it and I'd particularly urge newcomers or the confused to listen to the last five minutes where Dr. Rashbaum details common misconceptions about TMS. This is a wonderfully clarifying segment that breezes through the same-old stumbling blocks we see discussed here time and time again.

    I also appreciated the mention of the tms-hybrid. This strikes me as a very useful point which may benefit those with more complicated and more serious diagnosis.

    All in all it's given me a real TMS shot in the arm and much to reflect upon and as a tms veteran that is really quite nice.

    Cheers Tom. Your indefatigable loyalty to Dr. Sarno bears beautifully ripe fruit. beerbuds

    Hi TT
    I could not locate the Dr. Rashbaum video. Can you post the exact name of this video as it reads on YouTube? I saw a number of different ones but do not think any were the one you had forwarded.

    I googled "Dr. Sarno Methodology Lecture", it did come up for me, but maybe where you are located it's blocked by the ruskies or the north koreans--I clicked on the second video down with the picture of Dr. Sarno. The lecture is being held at an Orthodox Jewish Synagogue, and Dr. Rashbaum is introduced by the Rabbi.

    for people not familiar with dr. Rashbaum, he took over Dr. Sarno's practice at NYU...

    How did you guess this? I mean the rusky and NK influence here. Being a native son (so to speak since I'm a daughter) of Washington D.C. it is difficult to get away from all of this subterfuge. I fondly remember the youthful bliss of getting away from all of the D.C. frenzy when I lived a few years on the west coast. Sigh.
    Anyway, I found the youtube video.

    Oh, I spent a couple of days in DC once, didn't get to do much sightseeing except through the window of cabs. I was attending a performance by the Supremes at the SCOTUS Theatre--nice room, good acoustics, Rhenquist was the lead singer. The rusky and N. Korea influence starts on the left coast with piroshkies and kim-chee. By the time the stomach politics works it's way across ol' US HW 50 to DC, through the blizzards in the Sierras, and Rockies, the tornadoes in the Mid West, it can become heart-burn for the rest of the country. Did get to eat some Chinese downtown and play some tennis at the Army-Navy Club in Arlington. It was around Easter, a bit chilly and damp.

    Glad you found the video of Dr. Rashbaum, it's pretty good, all one may need to get the TMS concept for a change of mind on their pain.

    Ha! I'll try to remember to pass that one on to a friend who clerked for the supremes some years back, Justice Stevens I believe.
    Thanks, I just finished the video. It was good.

    Oh yes, we do use a lot of nexeum here. Very tasty.

    These posts you are asking are very old, 2017, the other one 2015.
    Books by Dr. Sarno are easily available to read.

    @ChronicVince, please don't take this personally, because obviously you are not the only one who does this. This obsession to spend valuable time obtaining ancient videos is a classic example of your TMS brain trying to distract you from doing the real work. In other words, THIS, right here, THIS is your brain on TMS.

    Accept the two videos that are right in front of you on this thread, and move forward into the future. Start doing the SEP, and use the forum to discover other resources.

    Choosing to remain stuck in the past is a good way to let your fearful brain win. There is no doubt that Dr Sarno was a visionary in the way he was able to get the word out, and I will always recommend The Divided Mind as a first book for learning about TMS, but as he himself would have acknowledged, he was not the first, and he's hardly the last, in the world of the mindbody connection. Heck, the professional board of the PPDA (ppdassociation.org) doesn't even use the term TMS anymore. Look them up. And then look to the future.

    Thanks @Cactusflower and @JanAtheCPA for this true insight... :)
    I thought the conferences where more detailed than the books, and looking for the true essence of it.
    I have only read "The Mindbody Prescription: Healing the Body, Healing the Pain" in french version "Le Meilleur anti-douleur c'est votre cerveau" and have done the first Alan Gordon program.
    Thanks a lot for the advice and for redirecting me toward the current ressources of PPD and Mindbody.

    It can't be easy accessing TMS information from another country, since it is mostly in english. Bonne travail et continuez comme ça !
    (that's about all I can manage from studying French 50 years ago :rolleyes:)

    Because there is no tms help in Paris, my friend used an EMDR therapist to help him with chronic health issues and anxiety. They understand mind body connection and it has helped him greatly!

    Thank you for this idea @Cactusflower but I already tried to EMDR psychiatrist without any real effect. And I talked about the Mindbody concept to the last one... that replied "Oh you needed a book to understand that ?"
    When I asked for therapists that could help me in Lyon where I live, she told me a name of a street with several therapists arguing they all can do that...
