Dr. Sarno teaches that much of the pain we experience is actually a repression mechanism to distract our mind from painful emotions we would rather
not experience. To keep the feelings repressed your brain gives you something else to deal with: pain or other physical symptoms.
Much of Dr. Sarno's work has been ignored by both alternative and mainstream medicine.
I was wondering if anyone else has practiced mind/body medicine as outlined by Dr. Sarno. I think his therapy based on introspection not medication is
I have been applying Dr. Sarno's theraputic approach to controlling pain for well over a decade now and it seems to work very well.
