In this acclaimed volume, Dr. Sarno reveals how many painful conditions - including most neck and back pain, migraine, repetitive stress injuries, whiplash, and tendonitises - are rooted in repressed emotions... and shows how they can be successfully treated without drugs, physical measures, or surgery. His innovative program has already produced gratifying results for thousands of patients. The Mindbody Prescription is your invaluable key to a healthy and pain-free life.

    "IGNORES SCIENTIFIC FACTS"

    Don't waste your money. The theory presented here is that every ache and pain is caused by our psychology and if knowing that does not work for you then you are not accepting reality. I think he has everything backwards--The condition of the body affects the mind...but then I am not a doctor so what do I know.

    "Ahhh... misinformation"
    What could John E. Sarno, M.D. have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I feel his decision to write this book is unethical. He frequently says that his assertions are "controversial." What is really meant is that they are disproved by science, in many cases. He clearly has grabbed on to this one idea (that some physical symptoms can be caused by repressed emotion) and then haphazardly educated himself on Freud (super terrible person, much disproved) and then sees everything through this lens of "everything is caused by repressed emotion." Yes, modern humans repress emotions too much. But... There are many factors.... And his using his MD to give validity to what he's saying when he has no formal training in psychology is unethical. Many things he has to say about psychology are untrue and are obviously him just projecting his own abnormalities upon all humans to help him feel more normal and OK. I hate it when authors have such obvious defense mechanisms which cause them to skew their views...

    "Nice approach to the pain problem"
    What made the experience of listening to The Mindbody Prescription the most enjoyable?

    Dr. Sarno has a nice view of the origin of the pains we have in our bodies. I particularly suffer of neck pain for 20 years and no doctor could find a solution, a cure or a relief. After reading Dr. Sarno's books I am sure that my problem is psychosomatic, but I could not relief my pain by only reading it. I wrote Dr. Sarno, but he is already retired, so I'll need psychotherapy to get better. At least there is a hope...
