The Great Pain Deception takes us on a compelling expedition into the late Dr. John Sarno's seminal work on TMS, The Mindbody Syndrome. Dr. Sarno has stated that Steve Ozanich "humanized my work." It has been successful in helping many thousands of people to heal from various health disorders, including chronic pain and disease.
Describing in detail, Steve walks us through his life of chronic pain to freedom after his discovering of TMS. He then delves deeper into the causes and effects of both pain and disease, synthesizing a new paradigm in understanding our health and healing.
TMS is the missing link that has been steadfastly searched for in healing. However, it remains controversial just as all new truths that come to be. Healing from most chronic pain and many other health disorders does not require surgery, drugs, or any medical modality, only a deeper understanding. The Great Pain Deception researches the psychology behind suffering, including memetics, social contagion, placebos, and why the medical industry, along with some sufferers, reject the healing solutions.
The medical industry by-and-large "treats symptoms," which is a failed model in healing. We currently possess the most advanced techniques for healing back pain in the history of humankind, yet back pain has risen to become the #1 cause of disability in the world. The back pain problem has gotten worse, not better, because the industry has focused on treating pain and not on its cause. True healing occurs when the cause of pain and disease is dissolved, not by treating the structure and symptoms of the physical body. Eliminate the cause and you eliminate the suffering.
The successes of The Great Pain Deception and TMS are growing and can be found online and on YouTube and inside its many pages. Success is measured in the healings themselves. This book describes the deeper understanding necessary to be well again, and more.
