Peter Waite: Thanks Ryan. Can you share what changes worked for you?
Ryan Walsh: +Peter Waite I (and an incredibly high percentage of people who read this stuff, plus his thousands of patients) found "#1 New York Times bestselling author" Dr. John Sarno's books (such as The Divided Mind) to be spot-on. The theories that Sarno and others in the field have developed over the past few decades cured my debilitating wrist pain, back pain, headaches, and many other symptoms. Part of me is shocked that these helpful theories haven't become mainstream yet. However, he writes in a way (as do other authors in the space) that isn't very "accessible" to the general population, so maybe that's why. For example, he claims that pain comes from the "repression of rage," especially rage related to something that happened in our childhood. That seemed extreme and dramatic and didn't resonate with me. But the Sarno books and the other materials got me on the right track, and now I feel great. It only works for people of the personality type that I mentioned (perfectionist, conscientious, etc). If you're interested in some of my notes and tips, send me an email. rcwalsh at gmail
