Something to consider if you have any kind of chronic pain. The theory is that chronic pain is cause by unresolved emotional issues. That a person would rather be in pain because the pain is a distraction from have to deal with the emotional issues and stresses in ones life.

Fast EFT deals with the same thing. Basically saying all pain is the result of unresolved emotional issues. Problems such as fears, anger, and rage that we bury and avoid rather then facing. They are expressed by the body as illness. So we work on trying to heal the illness which is a symptom rather then dealing with the cause, the past or present event which we are avoiding simply because we don't want to deal with it.

Dealing with avoidance of our inner pain can also manifest as addictions. We focus on the addiction and it's pain rather then face the real issues which we may even be hiding from ourselves. In some cases avoidance may manifest as depression or a mental illness. The thought is that it's easier to deal with depression then face the emotional cause of the depression which is being avoided.

These are the twelve daily reminders from "Healing Back Pain" by John E. Sarno, MD. For more information about TMS, visit http://www.tmswiki.org/ . For community support, to share your success story, or to get your questions answered, visit http://www.tmswiki.org/forum . Please also consider contributing a thank-you letter to Dr. Sarno at http://www.thankyoudrsarno.org .

Here is the text version of the 12 daily reminders:
1. The pain is due to TMS, not to a structural abnormality. 2. The direct reason for the pain is mild oxygen deprivation.
3. TMS is a harmless condition caused by my repressed emotions.
4. The principal emotion is my repressed ANGER.
5. TMS exists only to distract my attentions from the emotions.
6. Since my back is basically normal there is nothing to fear.
7. Therefore,physical activity is not dangerous.
8. And I MUST resume all normal physical activity.
9. I will not be concerned or intimidated by the pain.
10. I will shift my attention from pain to the emotional issues.
11. I intend to be in control-NOT my subconscious mind.
12. I must think Psychological at all times, NOT physical.

5.0 out of 5 starsMedical Truth. Buy this book, practice the techniques, and hang in there! You will heal.
ByKyleon May 18, 2014
Format: Mass Market Paperback
After 3 years of chronic low back pain and neck pain, I am healing. John Sarno's diagnosis is the truth, medicine is WAAY far behind in understanding the connection between emotions and illness, especially chronic pain. I bought this book in February with very consistent, badly affecting pain everyday and am now down to a daily 1 or 0 in pain. My biggest advice is HANG IN THERE, the book says it takes 6-8 weeks to heal completely and it has taken me much longer than that, don't be discouraged if you are still in pain after that time frame. Everyone is different and it took me 3 months to get to where I am now but the results are UNBELIEVABLE, pain is almost nothing to me now and in time it will be nothing and chronic pain will only be a memory.


Here are some KEY tips that helped me to heal:

1. Stop covering up your feelings. In the past, if someone said something offensive towards me, I would cover up the feeling by thinking about it, rationalizing why they said, what they said, the context, blah blah blah but the FEELING is what is important. My mind would say I'm not offended but the truth is I am. FEEL THAT FEELING and tell yourself it's ok to feel this. I am ok.

2. Stop letting your thoughts torture you. In the past I would let my head spin in worry for hours and hours, thinking oh maybe this will happen, but what if that happens. Take charge and say NO to your worry thoughts. It will suck for a while because worry is a habit and it takes time to break so you will be stopping your thoughts A LOT but eventually the worry slows down and dissipates. Channel that inner rage at your thoughts. Tell them to shut up! I wont take this abuse anymore, I deserve to feel good and I choose to feel hopeful.

3. Practice positive thinking and prayer. This will vibrationally help you to heal. Feed yourself POSITIVE ENERGY as much as you can, believe in your healing, no matter what the pain is telling you. Listen to My Morning Jacket, spend time in nature, get off Twitter and Instagram and all that noise, pet your dog, think about great things that have happened to you.

4. Journal. Write about what makes you angry, sad, scared, insecure. Write it out. I would oftentimes feel the repressed rage boiling up to the surface as I wrote. This is exactly what the pain is trying to distract you from, it is great to feel that rage there.

5. Cry, scream, beat the hell out of something. Get those emotions moving. If you have chronic pain, you have stale emotions sitting in you. Lay on your bed and breathe deeply into your belly, make a sound as you exhale, this helps to rouse the old emotions, bringing them to the surface. Keep breathing into it and cry it out, beat your pillow, whatever you're feeling.

6. Don't worry about setbacks. I had so many times where the pain would go down, only to come back with a vengeance. I was afraid I would never heal, but the fact that you can get it moving up and down like that at all shows that things are changing. Keep practicing, hold strong, and eventually the pain starts to lose the fight.

Acute pain will always occur with injury such as a torn ligament or strained muscles. But like Dr. Sarno says, Chronic pain is almost always emotionally produced; specifically as a distraction from our repressed emotions.

Go with your gut instinct. You know intuitively if the pain is serving as a distraction from your repressed emotions.

I've found that some key indicators lie in your personality and emotional health. Do you ruminate a lot? Do you have any challenges with depression or anxiety? Do you have any strong emotional "triggers?" I personally answer yes to all of these questions.

Try Sarno's techniques first, see if there's any change. If there is, there's your evidence.

Nr.1: Fairly easy.

Nr. 2: A decent challenge. My obsessiveness when I get hypomanic is extremely impractical; for anything. But I've worked a lot on that. And I am usually pretty decent at avoiding the worst bouts of hypomania before it gets too bad. I feel it's better to think the thoughts with intent for a while, and that the best way of stopping racing, obsessive thoughts is to accept that they're there and intentively try to think them, rather than doing the opposite of fighting them. They tend to lose power over me and disappear on their own that way. However, as with all things it's a constant work in progress.

Nr. 3: Not great at this one, but I work on it. And I've found it helps to remove the people from your life who keeps pushing you towards negative thinking rather than positive ones. The ex disappearing from my life was one of the healthier things to ever happen to me. She was constantly "What if..." and "you can't". Now I am surrounded by people who say; "You can do anything" and "we'll manage no matter what". And that helps. It's hard to combat your own negative tendencies if you're surrounded by people who do their best to feed them for you. Anyone can have a bad day; but if people have negative habits, feed their negative habits and do their best to keep their negative habits because any alternative scares them, then at some point, one might have to walk away to save one's own mental and physical health. And then leave it to the right professionals to help those who can't help themselves in that particular area.

Nr. 5: Finally one I ace, lol. I journal excessively. Both here and in my student journal at the internship. I find expressing and reflecting on paper really helps the internal compass, aids in the metakognition that helps one make real understanding about oneselfs and the events one is a part of.

Nr. 6: I've definitely felt the set-backs, and they can feel devastating when you think you're finally making progress. But my manual therapist is fantastic; she keeps saying that returning pain is just a sign that you're doing good work at pushing the body and moving naturally. A sharp pain is bad, but aching and a bit of a setback is natural and a part of the healing process.


And I worried my pain would end up being chronic. Then, after some talks with the manual therapist I decided they weren't going to be. Pain is nescessary, suffering is optional. Working through the crap as it comes, living on accepting what is and focusing on the positive, it helps with any pain. Worst case scenario, I got two dud toes from now on. One can live without functioning toes, lol. The disc slip is real, and strain to neck could cause it to act up again, but that doesn't mean I have to be in chronic pain. I know that, because I experienced how the pain disappeared completely that one weekend simply because my brain was drenched in natural dopamine. That's the power of the body to eliminate pain through happiness. And if it can do that, then the pain is per definition not chronic, but treatable through the rare medicine known as "joy". And joy is free and available even outside of the farmacy.


Anyways... Good article.

Emotional problems often manifest as stress in the body which suppresses health to a degree.

Joy is one of the most powerful way to empower ones spirit. Which is very healing.
