There's one that actually changed my life, believe it or not. It's gonna sound weird. So because I used to play games all day or very often, especially when I was a pro-gamer, I was afflicted with carpal tunnel pretty bad for most of my adult life. [...] So to cut a long story short, I tried everything and nothing worked. And then I read this book called The Mind/body Prescription. It's gonna sound really hokey because I'm the last person to believe in something like this. I'll give you the one second, the one-minute synopsis, which is that your mind and body... the premise of the book is that your mind and body are actually connected. And that a lot of repetitive stress injuries, whether it's neck pain, body pain, etc., are actually a manifestation of some internal strife. Yeah, yeah.
We all have internal stuff that drive... Some of this stuff drives us. The idea behind it was that there's a whole part of your system of your body that's autonomous. Like your immune system. Like blushing. You can't make yourself blush on purpose. So what is blushing? Your body's reacting to some emotional state of yours. And the high-level people understand that when you're super stressed your back might get tight. Or your neck might get tight. You need to go get a message or you go and do yoga. So there's some elements of that already, but he basically put it into more scientific form and a way to try to expel this emotional energy, or whatever, out of your body. I know it sounds crazy, but I basically read this book and I thought it was the most hokey thing. It takes a week to read it. It's really, really short. I read it and literally a week later I did not have carpal tunnel or any repetitive stress injury. It blew my mind. It literally blew my mind.
"My life was filled with excruciating back and shoulder pain until I applied Dr. Sarno's principles, and in a matter of weeks my back pain disappeared. I never suffered a single symptom again...I owe Dr. Sarno my life." - Howard Stern
Musculoskeletal pain disorders have reached epidemic proportions in the United States, with most doctors failing to recognize their underlying cause. In this acclaimed volume, Dr. Sarno reveals how many painful conditions-including most neck and back pain, migraine, repetitive stress injuries, whiplash, and tendonitises-are rooted in repressed emotions, and shows how they can be successfully treated without drugs, physical measures, or surgery.
The Mindbody Prescription is your invaluable key to a healthy and pain-free life.
