Discover the 4 Simple Proven Steps to Naturally Heal Your Back Pain, Even if Everything Has Failed In the Past!

Are you fed up with your back pain? Do you want to know how to help heal it naturally in 4 simple steps?

You have tried everything, but nothing seems to work!

Basically, you have had enough and you just want your life back.

Well, you are not alone!

Millions of Americans are suffering from back pain every day and the problem seems to be getting worse!

We try the special pillows, chairs, beds; we take pills and even have surgery to heal our back pain.

But, sometimes none of this works.

Then, we get frustrated and wonder if there is any way we will be free from back pain.

Well this exactly Jennet Barbra was going through.

For 3 years Jennet was in so much pain with her back she had resorted to using a wheelchair, and to make matters worse, the pain had moved down into her ankles.

And of course, Jennet had tried all the doctors, acupuncture, Chinese herbs, Anti-inflammatory and even heat pads.

Basically, Jennet had tried in all!

But none of them worked.

And there is Keith Levis, a successful lawyer.

His back was so painful he had to use a pillow while sitting in his chair and could not sit still or had to keep changing chairs; He had to walk around all the time to keep his back moving, just to control the pain.

Then, Keith tried physical therapy where his back and legs were stretched and massaged.

He tried a joint disease expert, Nero surgeon, took steroids, pain killers and to make matters worse he even had to give up work.

Keith’s life was evolved around his back pain.

Now, after trying everything under the sun, they both happened to meet Dr John Sarno, A professor of rehabilitated medicine at New York university hospital.

And after simply having a quick check over and having to attend a 3 hour lecture.

He doesn’t prescribe any medication, or mentioned any stretching excesses or even considered surgery.

Well, quite frankly the results were astounding after 3 months both Jennet and Keith were free of pain.

Jennet even goes for a run!

Not that was a surprise to Dr Sarno, he has a 90% success rate.

So how does he do it or more importantly, how can it help you!

What you are going to learn from Dr Sarno

  • Why You Need To Know That Your Back Pain Is More Than Just Physical.
  • How Healing your back starts with awareness of your emotions.
  • How Your Beliefs And Conditioning Affect The Way You Feel Pain.
  • How Anger Manifests As Pain In The Body And How To Deal With It.

Let’s get to it…

Your back pain is more than just physical

What if I told you there is no such thing as a slipped disk.

Yes, you may have seen a model on the doctor’s desk, with a disk lying next to the model of the spinal cord.

Also, you may not be aware, this is physically impossible, there is absolutely no way your disk could slip out.

Your doctor may also have an x-ray in front of him showing small cracks or small bulges on the disc.

Then, with confidence, diagnosed that the cracks in your spine is the ONLY reason you are in so much pain.

But,

Dr Sarno states, after ruling out any major problems in the spine, such as a major fracture or a disease.

He says “We all have these abnormalities on our spines; even people who have absolutely no problems with their backs have cracks and bulges on the spine”

In fact, there is no medical data to suggest that a small crack and normal abnormalities produce the crippling pain we are all going through. Tweet this!

So, you well may ask,

Why am I in so much pain?

There must be something else going on.

Yes, you are right but most of us are completely unaware of it!

Your unconscious mind!

Dr Sarno explains…

It is an interesting fact that the overwhelming majority of emotional and mental activity occurs below the level of consciousness. The human mind is something like an iceberg. The part that we are aware of, the conscious mind represents a very small part of the total. It is in the subconscious mind that all of the complicated processing goes on…

Let me explain further…

The pain you are feeling is very real, you can feel it!

But! The cause is in your own mind!

Most of us who suffer from back pain have a tendency to repress our emotions deep down into our unconscious mind.

Such as….

  • Stress
  • Anger
  • Fear
  • Guilt

However, all this bottled up emotion has to come out, and most likely will manifest as pain in the body.

Now, you may not be aware of how your emotions affect the mind and body.

That’s ok; I have got your back (sorry for the pun)

With that said, let’s move on!

Healing your back pain starts with awareness of your emotions

But for some of us, simply knowing the fact that we have tremendous healing power is enough for the pain to disappear completely.

Dr Sarno comments, around 95% of his patients that went through his programme or read his book Healing Back Pain healed themselves completely without the need for any physiotherapy.

So the first step is to start looking at your back pain in a different way.

“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. I have found this to be true so often on my own healing journey”
Dr Wayne Dyer

Let’s take our friend Jennet.

After listening to Dr Sarno, Jennet realised the cause of her pain was in her head (unconscious)

And also knew that she had repressed emotions that were causing all sorts of problems in her body.

But the simple fact is that Jennet had no idea what emotions were causing her back problems.

And if we are quite honest, most of do not know either!

So, Dr Sarno had a little chat with Jennet, he found that Jennet’s perfectionism was the cause for her back pain.

He explained that her constant push for everything to be perfect is making her angry inside.

And let’s not forget Keith,

Keith has a tendency to hold everything in and not let anyone know what he is feeling, even when he is in pain, he just keeps smiling.

Also, Keith is always trying to keep everyone happy and put his personal feeling to the side.

Again Dr Sarno explained, Keith is just holding back all that anger, and unconsciously is absolutely furious about it.

So! All Dr Sarno was doing is to look at Jennet’s and Keith’s personalities, and from there finding out the emotion behind the pain, in their case the emotion was anger.

So what is your personality telling you?

Here is the list of what Dr Sarno feels are the most common causes for back pain:

  • Striving for perfection
  • Always working hard
  • Worrying about everything
  • Very competitive
  • Low self-esteem
  • Critical of themselves

This could also affect the way you live your life on day to day basis, and most likely you do not even know it is happening!

Also, what you believe is possible has an important part to play in how you feel and cope with pain on a daily basis.

How Your Beliefs And Conditioning Affect The Way You Feel Pain.

Do you trust your doctor?

More than likely the answer is yes!

You make an appointment to see your doctor because you have been suffering from back pain.

You have tried everything else, but nothing has worked!

You have had enough!

So he gives you a full assessment and maybe had an X-ray or MRI done to see if he can see any major problems in your back.

But more often than not there is nothing more than small cracks or bulges, which Dr Sarno states as normal anomalies.

Then after ruling out every possibility and knowing that you have tried nearly everything without any success.

The doctor may say something like…

“Your back is not going to get any better; I will give you some pain killers to help the pain”

“There is nothing more I can do for you, you have tried it all”

Now, how would you feel after basically being told, you are just going to have to live with it?

Devastated!

Or just angry, that nothing can be done.

But you believe what has been said, as fact!

He is a doctor after all!

If you did not know any better, you would believe there is no hope.

“Accept the doctor diagnosis but not the prognosis”

Now after reading this post you know that it’s absolutely possible to that you can heal your back pain without the need for pills and surgery.

Like Dr Sarno, who has 90% success rate with patients that went through his program or read his book healing back pain.

In fact, there are thousands of examples of people healing themselves of catastrophic broken backs.

I can’t think of a better example than Morris Goodman!

Morris Goodman was completely paralysed, and 1st and 2nd vertebrae were broken.

Doctors said he would never walk, talk or breathe again on his own.

Well, he achieved all of the above, he walked unaided, straight out of the hospital doors.

So if Morris can heal 2 broken vertebrae’s

Do you think you can heal your back?

It has to be a yes! I mean you have the proof it can be done!

So, you may now believe that, if he can do it, so can I!

And frankly, that is all it takes to change your belief from…

“There is no way I can cure my chronic back pain”

To…

“If he can do it so can I, we are all human after all!”

Now of course, if your doctor had told you…

“There is nothing really wrong with your back that is out of the ordinary and you are just repressing anger which is manifesting as pain in your back.”

You would come away from the doctors with the belief that your back is absolutely fine and there is a way to stop the pain in your back.

Instead of feeling fearful of your own back.

As Dr Sarno suggests,

When we are fearful of our own backs, we start to change the way we go about our daily lives.

We start to create unconscious habits or beliefs around our back pain.

For example…

We go to sit down, we get a twinge. So then, we start to create an unconscious belief.

That is, every time I sit down I will get a painful twinge in the back!

So, now we start avoiding soft chairs, constantly moving around in different positions or try to avoid sitting all together!

In fact, every time you experience pain while doing a certain activity. You will start to unconsciously create habits that try to avoid the feeling of pain.

But the good news is!

If you are aware of what is happening you can stop the habits before they start controlling the way you live your life.

To put it simply,

If you have pain in your body, and the doctor has ruled out any major problems.

Then it is more than likely you are repressing anger deep in your unconscious.

That’s all well and good Mark!

How do we deal with all this anger?

How Anger Manifests As Pain In The Body And How To Deal With It

While we are bottling up our emotions our nervous system activates our fight, flight or freeze response without us being consciously aware of it.

As this is going on, oxygen in our blood is directed to all the major organs ready to deal with any threat.

And this means the smaller parts of the body such as our muscles, nerves, joints and tendons receive very little oxygen.

This all creates tension and physical pain in the body. It’s really that simple!

This all comes from when we were cave men/women dealing with the very real threat of a sabre tooth tiger attacking us from anywhere, anytime!

Of course, we do not have to deal with all this sort of nonsense nowadays. We have other problems!

  • Striving for perfection
  • Always working hard
  • Worrying about everything
  • Very competitive
  • Low self-esteem
  • Critical of themselves

 

But the fight, flight response is still within us. Still protecting us!

So, how do you control this natural response?

In short, through your breathing!

Now, I am talking about slow deep breathing.

There are some techniques that help you control your breathing, Such as, Hypnosis, meditation or even visualisation.

But if you want quick results,

There is a great technique called belly breathing!

Here is a free mp3 that I have personally created for you.

Download the Belly Breathing mp3

So whenever you are in pain or feel stressed find a quiet place and listen to the mp3.

You will be absolutely blown away with the results.

We have now come to the end of our little chat and now it is time to take action.

Go back to the start and really give it a go,

I believe in you, you can do this!

But, as always if you have any questions, and I mean any!

Feel free to contact me and share this post with anyone who is suffering from back pain, it could change their life!
