I've been having severe back pain for six months now and have been unable to work more than a couple hours at a time. I've been through all the usual therapies with no relief so I decided to give this book a try. The concept is intriguing so I gave it two stars but the book does not share any techniques to resolve the pain. I have just purchased his other book "The Mind Body Prescription" and I really hope it will describe the program there.
I am a massage therapist as well as an occasional back pain suffer. i've read commended this book to clients for years and have seen miraculous results.this book is written from the point of view of an orthopedic surgeon and provides a tremendous insight into the pain cycle that keeps so many of us trapped.stop browsing, buy this book, listen to it, then listen to it again, then watch your life change. It's audible, so the returns are as easy as a phone call to their excellent customer service department; if you don't like it, you get either your money or your subscriber's credit back.
I would say this is one of my top ten
I did, but I listened in two sittings
Thank you for writing, it explains so much
Expatriate American academic with high, middle, and low-brow taste.
The many positive reviews, combined with a "20-20" TV-journalism piece praising the doc., compelled me to try this in spite of my skepticism and my friends' bemusement, but my moderate lumbar stenosis has not dissipated in light of the doctor's claims that back pain is caused by the repression of rage. Maybe this is true for some people with milder symptoms, but it didn't work for me.
I have listened to it and Dr Sarno's other 2 books all day long for 5 weeks ago. It has healed my back pain and more. It also healed my husband's back pain and several friends of mine who got the book after I told them about it.
Loved it all equally.
I listened to all 3, but I think his last one The Divided Mind was my favorite.
Life Is Full of Pain
Please thank Dr. Sarno for saving my life!
It changed my life! And it will do the same for you, I guarantee it!!
I went from barely being able to perform any physical activity to running every day! I was in pain all the time, and now barely ever think about it, my whole life has change… If you are reading these reviews it means you have back pain, if so then stop here and buy the book! Cause worst case you lose $13, best case it will change everything about your life!
I don't have the printed version but I will get it, too.
None can compare except for Dr. Sarno's two other books.
I have listened to all of Dr. Sarno's books here on audible. All I can say is he is a GENIUS! This guy deserves the Nobel Prize for Medicine!!!
Have you ever heard of a book the heals you just by listening to it? He set me free and made me the master of my body again after suffering the whole of 2011 from bursitis, sciatica (herniated disc, or so they say) and morton's neuroma. I bought the Mindbody Prescription earlier, used to avoid going out because of the burning pain in my feet, but from day one I was able to walk several miles at the Pentagon then danced the night away in the evening!!! Talk about miracles!
