"Get mad at your brain; talk to it; give it hell. TMS is a trick your mind is playing on you - don't fall for it. TMS is a sideshow designed to distract you from what is going on emotionally. The symptoms are an act to mask what's going on in the psyche."

"I recommend this book (The Great Pain Deception)."

Dr. John Sarno, MD

“Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease.”

“It is important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has.”

“To do nothing is also a good remedy.”

“Whenever a doctor cannot do good, he must be kept from doing harm.”


“I’m convinced that Dr. Sarno is right and that all chronic back pain should be considered TMS until proved otherwise.”

Andrew Weil, MD
