Osiris Beat the Odds


They say that there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel, but not after your eyes have adjusted to the dark. And for our client Osiris, it had gotten very dark indeed.

Osiris had been a highly athletic teenager with a bright future. He had a scholarship to the University of Southern California and was also planning a career in the military to serve his country. But then he got hit very hard with Tension Myositis Syndrome all over his body.

And in the course of just one year, Osiris went from a highly active teenager to legally disabled and bedridden 24/7. The pain was so excruciating, he could barely breathe.

But then he found Dr. Sarno and the Pain Cure Clinic and, needless to say, everything got a whole lot better. If you need some inspiration today, Osiris is going to give it to you right now - in spades.

TMS: Parsing Out the Pain

One of the most common coaching questions we get here at the Pain Cure Clinic is about which pain is TMS and which pain is from “real” structural problems. Most people we coach with TMS symptoms currently have or have had multiple pains and conditions over many years. And it’s hardly ever just back pain.

This is a key question and key point in the recovery of the TMS sufferer. Every week I hear things like: “Well, I believe the back pain is TMS but these other problems are real. I’ve seen the MRI. It’s structural." My favorite is: “It’s bone on bone for heaven’s sake!” Or “My mother had the same thing, it’s genetic.” Your mother was just as tense as you are.

There is often a defensiveness regarding prior surgeries as being necessary. Lately, we are noticing that everyone has had either shoulder surgery or hip replacement. It’s very, very common. While it may seem...

TMS: Too Painful to Exercise


When you’ve got pain (whether in the neck, back, knees, or feet), it’s only logical to rest the affected area and wait for it to heal. Or at least it seems that way. But when you have TMS, resting the painful area doesn’t work. It only makes the situation worse and invites new pain symptoms in other parts of the body. It starts to snowball and people never get better.

Exercise is actually one of the best things you can do for chronic pain. It sends a message to your subconscious mind that:

You're NOT broken.
You’re NOT buying this pain charade.
You’re NOT playing.

But if you’ve been in pain for a while, it’s tough to get back into an exercise routine because it’s going to cause more pain - at least initially. And that’s the hard part. In this episode, John Thornton explains:

1. Why exercise is the shortest distance between you and pain free.
2. How to break through the bell-shaped curve of pain and get to...

Sarno Medal of Freedom Winner

On this day in 1776, the colonies of America declared their independence from the tyrannical rule of England (although we’ve made up since then and England is now our closest ally). The colonists considered freedom a God given right, and we agree. And freedom from pain is just as important. 


Our client, Osiris Kelly, also agrees. He suffered from excruciating pain throughout his body from a very young age. At one point it was so bad, he wasn’t sure if he was going to make it. He wasn’t sure he wanted to. 


But then he found Dr. Sarno and has made a complete 180-degree turnaround. You can see it in the pictures above.* 


Osiris is the first recipient of our Sarno Medal of Freedom, and we couldn’t have asked for a better one. He has the grit and independent spirit of Dr. Sarno - the namesake of this award. Excellent job Osiris! He has won the battle. We'll share his complete story in a video coming soon.

TMS: Upper Back, Neck and Shoulder Pain


One of the most common places that Tension Myositis Syndrome shows up (and wreaks havoc) is in the upper back, neck, and shoulder area of the body. That’s where common sayings like these come from: 

- That guy is a pain in the neck.
- That lady is carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders.
- That guy has a monkey on his back.

There’s a method to all this madness though. And in this video, John Thornton is going to explain what’s really going on:

  1. How muscles, nerves, and tendons are tightened by way of oxygen deprivation that ends up causing upper back, neck, and shoulder pain. 
  2. Why medical diagnoses like disc abnormalities, bone spurs, osteoarthritis, and rotator cuff tears are not valid causes for the pain.
  3. And why the medical establishment doesn’t acknowledge the mind-body connection as the cause of these upper body chronic pains.

TMS: Don't Panic

Uncategorized May 09, 2023


TMS will use any opening to instill fear, doubt and, yes, even panic at times. And since, your mind, your emotions AND your body are involved with stress-based symptoms, it makes sense that TMS attacks can come from both your mind and your body.
