I recently started listening to Dr. Sarno about his opinion on how to heal your own back and what's going on back there.
First let me tell you, the guy is a quack. He basically says that it is all in your head. The pain is real, but it is because of underlying emotional issues that causes the pain. He states that you don't even have to do anything about what's emotionally straining you. All you need to do is recognize it.
The thing that really gets me is that he also says that unless you totally believe in his assessment, it won't work. Not his fault if you don't get better, it's yours. You didn't believe enough.
What a jerk for preying on people who are desperate to get better.
Although, I am grateful to my Audible Free Trial for ultimately letting me hear this guy. I'd rather have listened to it myself to know what I would think, than not being able to listen to it at all. I might be wondering if there was some wisdom that I was missing out on.
I'd miss out if I'd never tried Audible, but this book is missing it's mark.
