Thanks, Ken: I'm doing very well! I'm back out on the road, driving the big truck again, so I can't keep daily contact, here, with y'all. I manage to exercise and stretch most days, and have been getting more fit and flexible. Reading Sarno's books really helped me turn the corner on my sciatica. R...

Hi Seann Look for any of the last three books Dr. Sarno has written since early 90's. They all have the essentials of his theories and treatment recommendations. I've read MindBody Prescription, and Healing Back Pain; I liked the former, better, but learned all I needed from reading the latter, fir...

Re: question re TMS

Hi all, Am reading Dr. Sarno's book at the moment about TMS and think I may be a candidate. I've come a long way with Dean's exercises but can't seem to get rid of this nagging pain in my L buttock. It just refuses to go away completely. My question is for anyone else who has read Dr Sarno's book o...

Did you get a chance to check out Sarno's work, woodchuck? Randolph Hi Randolph, I finally bought Dr Sarno's "HEALING BACK PAIN - The Mind-Body Connection" today. Reading the Intro and a quick scan through the pages, it looks promising. I do deal at times with a lot of suppressed anger and at times...

Hi Ken, (Edit: Actually I checked this morning and that feature is enabled. It's the same one that notifies you when your account is activated. So if you received an email when you registered... you should still receive emails for posts if you set your profile to do so. In other words, I don't know...

Update for Randolph

Has been days since I posted. Wanted to have something concrete to share. Not sure I do now, but maybe. ;) Randolph, I just went two days on the fast and the reason I stopped so short is that on the beginning of the third day, I started back on the cobra from RYB to see what would happen and found i...

Think there might be a future for me where you work (too bad we'd have to move to SoCal) if I can get my wife to wear the financial pants in the family for a while? :lol: Randolph Yep, working in Security was intended to be a temporary situation which has turned out somewhat longterm and therefore ...

Sorry for the rant ... it's a real sore spot since one of my kids almost died on me, me thinking I was helping her, feeding her all this wonderful food, and there I was killing her. Now, I'd rather err on the side of saying too much, than not enough. Randolph No, I hear you Randolph and understand ...

Re: a health ripoff and a warning to all of us

Interesting Randolph! I think you and I have a lot in common. I'm not sure if you mean drug addict, but in any case, I am an AA member, totally sober now since 1/16/86. Prior to going to AA, I was deeply involved in a Church (in fact, I have a BA in Theology from Ambassador College) and tried to get...

Good luck with your fast ... take it slow! Are you doing it at home alone, or going to a retreat to fast with others and doctor supervision? Is Fuhran still associated with the Hallelujah Acres folks? Or am I getting him mixed up with someone else? From the limited descriptions of your pain symptom...

Diet / Water Fasting Approach?

Did you get a chance to check out Sarno's work, woodchuck? Randolph Have not yet. Got distracted but do intend to check it out. I'm still having some sciatica and lower back pain. In fact, I think I may have overdone it a bit with the back exercises. Yesterday I had quite a bit of discomfort, so to...

Be patient and don't become overconfident. Dean Hi Dean! Yes, I will have to be careful about that. Pain gets my attention and when the pain goes away, I find it tempting to abandon what helped me. Have gone through this sciatica cycle a couple times before. However, I also have to stay aware that ...
