Anyone who has chronic pain needs to read this book... And I'm only on page 1!!!
"Pain and other chronic symptoms are physical manifestations of unresolved internal conflict. Symptoms surface as an instinctual mechanism for self survival.
They are messages from the inner self wanting to be heard, but ego takes center stage in heights the truth within the shadows of the unconscious mind: which is the body. One purpose of these physical symptoms is to keep the individual focused on his physical body, and away from the surfacing emotions.
This is referred to as Tension Myoneural syndrome, TMS, which includes acute and chronic nerve pain as well as muscular pain and a wide variety of other symptoms.
T = Tension, the result of anger buried in the body
M = Myoneural, muscles and nerves
S = Syndrome, a collection of symptoms
TMS is the cause of the current pandemic of back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, migraine, hip pain, knee pain, wrist and hand pain, carpal tunnel pain, mouth and jaw pain, foot pain, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, so-called repetitive stress "injuries", GERD and other stomach disorders, skin disorders, allergies, many eye problems, ulcerative colitis and an infinite variety of other pain equivalents.
This pain comes from a reduction in oxygen flow to muscles and nerves due to unconscious tension." 😳😮😱
