Today we explore TMS and the mind/body connection that may just be at the root of your chronic pain or frustrating conditions. Studies and medical discoveries show that certain personality types are prone to suppressed emotions causing conditions such as: TMJ, Sciatica, Plantar fasciitis, Frozen shoulder, Rotator cuff injuries, Hip pain, Knee pain, Shin splints, Tennis elbow, Golfer's elbow, Tinnitus, Chronic pain, Fibromyalgia, Irritable bowel syndrome, Chronic fatigue syndrome, Migraines and tension headaches, Back pain, Neck pain, Shoulder pain, Carpal tunnel syndrome, Tennis elbow, Neuropathy, Vertigo and more. 

In today’s episode we discuss revolutionary concepts from books like The Body Keeps and Score and a series of books inspired by the research and healing treatment of Dr. John Sarno.

  9. I will no longer give my condition my energy or my focus.
