Dear Awesome Woman,
Back pain can be quite a challenge. You’re wanting to do, do, do and yet your back pain stops you in your tracks!
Well, read on and discover what Dr. John Sarno has to say is the real cause of back pain and what you can do about it.
Dr. John Sarno has revolutionized the medical field with his radical approaches to healing back pain and other physical ailments. He coined the term TMS, tension myostitis syndrome, to describe a circulatory constriction in blood vessels that results in pain in the body. This is also know as Mind-body syndrome. To sum up what Dr. Sarno has written (The Mindbody Prescription) and taught for over 30+ years is that the brain will cut off blood/oxygen flow to different parts of the body in order to distract an individual from recognizing and feeling emotions that they are trying to avoid. This lack of blood/oxygen flow is the direct cause of pain. In order to get relief from the pain, we will go running around to different doctors and googling the internet to get answers and diagnosis for help with pain relief, when the healing is within our reach and within our own body. We just need to feel to heal.
This is not to say AT ALL that the pain is only in the mind. The pain is real and the symptoms are real. But the healing comes from turning inward, getting honest about one’s emotions – especially anger, fear and sadness and allowing for emotional energy flow. Sounds good, right?
But how to do this is the question especially when so many of us have the habit of ignoring these emotions or getting stuck in them.
It’s quite simple actually, yet needs to be exercised to get the brain to cease it’s tricky behavior. Emotions are energy in motion. They show up as physical sensations in the body, starting out very quiet and subtle, almost vibrational. When ignored, they get louder and louder until screaming as a migraine, backache or some other pain or weakness in the body. The key here is to notice as soon as possible and as often as possible what we are feeling, and this means being honest with ourselves. This is where the healing begins.
I’ve done this for myself so I know it’s possible.
In working with me, we will unblock emotional energy and access mental patterns that perpetuate this Mind-body syndrome. We also will discover YOUR body and soul wisdom for your individual Soulution to get the relief you desire.
Let’s get you back on your feet again, doing the things you love!
