Running marathons GOOD! Knee surgery BAD! :



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."

"Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthuisam."
Sir Winston Churchill


"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
400 E 34th St, New York, NY 10016

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

"...there are so many things little and big that are tms, I wouldn't have time to write about all of them": Told to icelikeaninja by Dr. Sarno

Here's the TMS practitioners list from the TMS Help Forum:

I like Dr. Mirkin, he usually writes about cycling being good and running being bad, so nice to see a different opinion. I have done 7 marathons, I think the race is too long for me but easy for some runners.

Happy Holidaze Al! I've also done a few marathons in my day and never had a twinge of hip pain--had many other "injuries" from running and tennis of the real, imagined and the TMS kind. This report is a bombshell, confirming what has been increasingly hinted at in other studies, that surgeries are no better than placebos, as Dr. Sarno said : "Surgery is our best placebo".
