The latest findings are that EXERCISE is one of the best things for sufferers from joint pain can do. I've posted several recent meta-studies from reputable medical journals below--the "USE IT OR LOSE IT" approach to getting the synovial joint juices flowing from the bursae encapsulated in joints. Dr. Sarno encouraged returning to normal physical activity--which is contrary to what most of the medical-industrial complex advises against--they usually pass out NOCEBOS like "bone on bone" and go get a hip replacement or the surgery-du-jour.

Dr. Sarno also had his "12 DAILY REMINDERS" for inspiration to divert the mind to the emotional, from the stuctural distraction when TMS pain strikes. One of my recent favorites is from the movie THE EXORCIST, from the scene where the two priests perform an exorcism rite Linda Blair. Although I'm not a Christian, I like the sound of ordering the pain to get lost with the mantra : TMS--"THE POWER OF CHRIST COMPELS YOU!"-- to get lost pain! (You can youtube the scene from the movie--not for the squeamish!) Whatever works.



Some of my favorite excerpts from _THE DIVIDED MIND_ :


"It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society." Jiddu Krishnamurti

"Pain is inevitable; suffering is optional." Author Unknown

“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation” – Plato

"Happy People Are Happy Putters." Frank Nobilo, Golf Analyst

"Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint." Mark Twain and Balto

"The hot-dog is the noblest of dogs; it feeds the hand that bites it." Dr. Laurence Johnston Peter

"...the human emotional system was not designed to endure the mental rigors of a tennis match." Dr. Allen Fox

"Where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise" - Thomas Gray

"All my friends in Los Angeles are the sensitive type. They all have like all the diseases like Chronic Fatigue, Epstien Barr, Fibromyalgia. Like all the diseases where the only symptoms seem to be you had a really crappy childhood and at the prospect of full time work ya feel kinda achy and tired."

John Sarno, MD

Dr. Sarno is now retired, if you call this number you will be referred to his associate Dr. Rashbaum.

"...there are so many things little and big that are tms, I wouldn't have time to write about all of them": Told to icelikeaninja by Dr. Sarno
