Publisher's Summary

Dr. John E. Sarno's Healing Back Pain is a New York Times best seller that has helped over 500,000 readers. Continuing the research since his ground-breaking book, the renowned physician now presents his most complete work yet on the vital connection between mental and bodily health....

Musculoskeletal pain disorders have reached epidemic proportions in the United States, with most doctors failing to recognize their underlying cause. 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.

    "Excellent! !"

    I thought this book was very informative and really bridged the gap of our normal concepts of psychosomatic illness and how very natural and common it is. I will have to listen again because I found myself lost in thoughts that were provoked by the writing. I missed portions of the techniques that were outlined more than one time. if you have ANY ailment that modern health has failed to resolve or even aggrivated, listen to this book. its worth a shot.

    "Worthless Useless and Malicious"

    It's a shame this quack is apparently able to perform malpractice on patients in pain. The information is wrong regularly. Not randomly, but manipulatively always supporting the author's conclusions. No other researchers can duplicate or verify his results.

    DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY OR YOUR TIME.

    "Life changing"

    My husband told me 2 years ago about Dr. Sarno I ignored it. I have had fibromyalgia for 8 years spent thousands of dollars trying to get rid of it. Nothing helped but this $11.99 audible. It has changed my life I am literally pain free. I recommend this book to everybody especially if you have chronic pain like I did. 5 stars all the way. Penny

    "Worth it."

    Book is meant to be persuasive, and is. Seems picky to correct the pronunciation of "lumbar" but hearing "lumber" instead of "lumbar" is a bit annoying and makes the work slightly less persuasive. Hopefully it doesn't distract you as much as it did me.

    "Outstanding"

    This is an excellent explanation of the human physiological system. I'm so glad my Mother told me about it. My back, neck and shoulder started feeling better before I finished the book. I went running yesterday! I feel great. This is definitely life changing, in several ways.
    I recommend this book to all humans, especially those who are experiencing any kind of pain. I will start reading it again tomorrow. I will re-read it again and again, several times so I don't forget the so many important points in it.
    Why can't more doctors consider these concepts?
    Dr. Sarno, thank you so much!
    Jon

    "Completely lame. 99.9% useless."

    The author spends 99.9% of the "book" listing every malady known to medicine, explaining that are all caused by TMS while not explaining HOW to actually treat the gigantic list of psychosomatic illnesses. according to this quack, nearly every disease is caused by repressed rage.

    "Great Book With Treatment Guide"
    Any additional comments?

    Part of the therapy is the books themselves to educate you on the subject material. This book offers a treatment guide. Life Changing

    "If you have chronic pain, READ THIS BOOK!"

    This book and Dr. Sarno's TMS theory is a much needed revolution in modern medicine. It deals with the question of chronic pain that most doctors don't have a clue of how to deal.

    Just the act of reading it (listening) i was relieved of a Tennis Elbow condition that have been bothering (to say the least) me for almost 3 years! Now i'm practicing the exercises for dealing with the "unconsious rage" and feeling that i' definetely on the right track!

    Thank you Dr. Sarno for your wisdom and dedication! You have saved many lives!
