Listen to this book it will change your life!

Would you listen to The Mindbody Prescription again? Why?

Yes, I am going for my second time around listening and I will continue to listen to it until the concepts are second nature. It is healing just to listen to the concepts of this book. I noticed a change within. Dr Sarno's scientific pedigree gives enormous weight to his scientific findings. He guides the listener by the hand through biological and anatomical concepts. This book is a real gem!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Mindbody Prescription?

That I have the power to heal myself. That emotions, though intrinsic to living, important and necessary, if they are out of balance can be very toxic.

Which scene was your favorite?

The exercises to begin healing the mind and body

What did you learn from The Mindbody Prescription that you would use in your daily life?

To become aware of the physiology of emotions and their effect on the body structures.

Any additional comments?

Dr Sarno continue to write please. We need to change the outmoded concepts of orthodox medicine

Desperation led me here; already paying off

It's been over 6 months since I started having pain that spread all over my body--hands, elbows, toes, ears... I went to the doctor numerous times, saw various specialists, did every test under the sun..and nothing came out to explain what I was feeling. I started thinking maybe I was imagining the pain altogether.

With that in mind and with little expectation, I decided to give this audiobook a shot.. Dr. Sarno assured me that the pain is not imaginary but that there is a way to get rid of it and he explained what steps I could take to do so. I know this is probably too early to report for sure, and ideally I'll have the discipline to update my review later on, but one day after finishing listening to this audiobook and applying some of the recommendations, I feel much better---and feel obligated to write a review.

The performance wasn't the most exciting though I doubt too many people are listening to this book purely for entertainment purposes. I'm guessing most listeners, like myself, have a very strong motivation to absorb the contents...and take the time to believe it. And you'll have a good shot of believing it once you've listened to the 7 or so hours and started giving some of the recommendations a go.
