The best way to diagnose and treat chronic pain, even with a mindbody approach, is in the office. Despite this, I have always been fascinated by people reading John Sarno's books and finding relief just from that process. He called these "book cures".
I just got a wonderful email from someone who read the book (halfway through at last report) and found pain relief just from that process.
Here's an anonymized excerpt:
Subject : Thank you!!
Message : Have hip arthritis, nearly crippled with pain, life gone, then I found your book, only half way through, pain nearly gone, I would give you a million dollars if I had it! Thank you so very much, and God bless you.

It's so gratifying to hear from people who found value in the book (and I'm getting lots of great feedback on Think Away Your Pain). But this is the first who found dramatic pain relief just from reading... halfway through!
The power of learning, the power of the mind/brain. Think Away Your Pain.
