I've wondered about that too regarding eczema. Up north here it seems to get worse in the winter per conventional wisdom, but there definitely seems to be a relation to stress as well - which there's been lots of this winter. But other TMS things seem to have subsided.

Sometimes dealing with TMS seems much like playing whack-a-mole, but the very fact that it moves a round is reassuring on one level.

There's a whole mind/body book written about the topic of skin disorders and dis-ease, "SKIN DEEP" by Grossbart & Sherman. It's sounds very TMS'y. Bought it used on Amazon but haven't had to delve into it yet, keeping it in my Sarno medicine cabinet for my second childhood if and when my zits come back. Here's a link to one of the author's web-site's, he's out of Boston :



Some of my favorite excerpts from _THE DIVIDED MIND_ :


"It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society." Jiddu Krishnamurti

"Pain is inevitable; suffering is optional." Author Unknown

“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation” – Plato

"Happy People Are Happy Putters." Frank Nobilo, Golf Analyst

"Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint." Mark Twain and Balto

"The hot-dog is the noblest of dogs; it feeds the hand that bites it." Dr. Laurence Johnston Peter

"...the human emotional system was not designed to endure the mental rigors of a tennis match." Dr. Allen Fox

"Where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise" - Thomas Gray

"All my friends in Los Angeles are the sensitive type. They all have like all the diseases like Chronic Fatigue, Epstien Barr, Fibromyalgia. Like all the diseases where the only symptoms seem to be you had a really crappy childhood and at the prospect of full time work ya feel kinda achy and tired."

"If it ends with "itis" or "algia" or "syndrome" and doctors can't figure out what causes it, then it might be TMS." Dave the Mod



John Sarno, MD

Dr. Sarno is now retired, if you call this number you will be referred to his associate Dr. Rashbaum.
