CLIENT SUCCESS STORIES
Allan from New Hampshire
"After completing The Pain Cure Clinic video course, I don't have pain anymore and I don't have any fear of pain. That's probably the biggest thing. In the past, I would shy away from doing things like yard work and lifting weights. I'm not afraid to do anything anymore."
Dennis from Texas
"My TMS symptoms started 17 years ago. After 2 weeks doing the PCC program, I was out of pain. Within a month, chronic pain became and afterthought. After 17 years of going to the chiropractor every week - no more pain!"
Aziz from Oregon
"I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder called Ankylosing Spondylitis. This was a mis-diagnosis. I had TMS. I went from stuck and in pain and afraid of the pain to feeling strong in my body. Now I'm pain free and forever grateful to John and Laura and the Pain Cure Clinic."
Kitty from Maine
"The first week after I started the program, I could see how easy it would be to change my mind about all these diagnoses - that it's all just TMS. I'm able to walk up and down stairs, which I haven't been able to do for years. I gave away my wheelchair and my walker."
Mark from Alabama
"This program has transformed my life, helping me get rid of a variety of constantly new symptoms. I just feel better and more optimistic every day. "
Roger, 63: Back Pain & Tinnitus
"I struggled with back pain and tinnitus for probably 2 decades. I tried everything including reading Dr. Sarno books. The pain never changed. I purchased the Master Class in January of 2020 and it really put the whole mind/body connection together in a very easy to follow way. I think it worked so well because John and Laura are big on both mind and body instruction. I got 100% better in about 60 days. Highly recommend the program."
Salvador, 49: Back & Neck Pain
"I’ve been doing great since I completed the Pain Cure Clinic course 6 months ago. I now have the knowledge necessary to keep the pain away. I’ve been re-watching the course about once a month. It’s a great way to reinforce that there’s nothing wrong with me. The course showed me how to control the stress was causing my pain. I’m not afraid of the pain anymore and when it tries to come on, I will stay in that position until the pain goes away."
Sarah, 34: Lupus & Rheumatoid Arthritis
"I’m doing very well despite my transfer to this harsh environment. Because of Laura’s help, I have been symptom free for over 3 years now. I think once I became pain free, it released me from the prison of fear that I would be in pain for the rest of my life. Now I know that it’s just TMS and I can handle it."
Kitty, 80, Idiopathic Body Pain & Vertigo
“I'm 6 weeks into the program and have already experienced many miracles, including pushing through a recent episode of positional vertigo that used to send me to the hospital. (I called it TMS and a shift in consciousness.) I've thrown away all my support pillows and braces, have given away my wheelchair, canes and walkers, and have eliminated ALL painkillers, including round-the-clock Tylenol, Enbrel injections (I used to pay $10,000 per year before Medicare/Medicaid, and it now costs my insurance company $78,000 a year!), prednisone, gabapentin, nitroglycerin, medical marijuana. I've had 12 different diagnoses over the past 40 years; surgery, drugs, physical therapy, acupuncture, hypnotherapy, endless tests, etc., etc., etc., all deemed idiopathic with no known cause or cure, with "treatments" giving only temporary relief and nasty side effects. I am 100% committed to this program and have made a pact with Great Spirit to stay with it as I turn 80 years old. My doctor doesn't know this, nor does my daughter, an orthopedic surgeon. I look forward to friends and family asking me "What happened to you? When they see me beachcombing, carrying my own groceries, standing in line at the Farmers' Market, hanging my sheets on the line again, and facilitating drum circles in nursing homes and prisons. I feel GREAT...like Tony the Tiger! I could be a 'poster child' for The Pain Cure Clinic."
Lane: Eye Pain
"I just wanted to share that one month ago I decided to stop using all of the eyedrops and ointments I had been relying on for over five years to cope with my chronic, severe eye pain and my symptoms have been 90% better for the past three weeks!!! Your videos and the materials in the course really gave me the confidence to take that leap and believe that nothing is wrong with me, despite what my doctors have been telling me. I know I still have work to do regarding my TMS-leaning personality traits, but I can't thank you enough for the work that you both do in this community."
Mark, 60: Eczema, Digestive Issues, Tinnitus, Allergies, Plantar Fasciitis
"I had so many symptoms that I was at the doctor’s office multiple times per week. And it kept getting worse. I got coaching from John Thornton and the Sarno on-line class and the meditation class. The combination of all the information from class and the coaching allowed me to cure all symptoms in less than one year. That was after a lifetime of pain. I am so grateful."
Dan, 40: Back Pain & IBS
"The Sarno Master Class changed my life. I had read The Mind Body Prescription and it was great. However what Laura and John have put together is a more complete solution. It pulled everything together and gave me simple action steps and a timeline that I could easily follow. The pain and digestive issues decreased over a period of about 4 to 5 months. And then they were completely gone. Sometimes, if I’m really stressed, the symptoms come back but they never last more than a day or two."
Kelly: Back Pain
Denise, 57: Hip Pain
“This is me during my 7-day trek of the Himalayas in Nepal! I followed your plan — did a lot of reading, got myself a therapist to address the last several years of family traumas, continued to work out 4-5 days per week (but stepped up the intensity) and started meditating. Thank you for helping me achieve this victory!!!”
Liz, 55: Back & Foot/Leg Pain, Lock Jaw, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Headaches, Ulcers
"I’m changing jobs to a company I’ve always wanted to work for. Lifting (weights) 3-4 days a week and joined a kickboxing gym. And I tossed the Gabapentin shortly after my last session. You’ve been tremendous and I wouldn’t have my life back if it wasn’t for the Pain Cure Clinic and Dr. Sarno!"
Barbara, 66: Hip, Leg, and Foot Pain, Tendonitis (tennis elbow) and GI Upset
"The biggest change I’ve noticed is how nice it is not to have any fear about the stomach issues or the many bodily pains. The Sarno Class has made a huge difference. No more trying to figure out what’s wrong with me! There’s nothing wrong with me."
Matthew, 39: Back Pain/Sciatica
“All is great here. Feeling very good. Keeping up with the journal and mediation time.Thanks for helping me get back to life! Got to take the boys to the ski slope too.”
Gina, 41: Back, Hip and Leg Pain
"I’m doing amazing! It’s been 2 weeks since I finished the course and NO PAIN!"
Kirby, 24: Back Pain
“I can’t express how grateful I am that I found Pain Cure Clinic. Thank you so much for everything!! I’m doing great! I’ve been following my action plan and been back to exercising regularly. We ended up going on our trip to England and I actually played a pick-up game of soccer there for the first time since last fall and it felt great. I still have some moments of discomfort, but nothing close to what I used to feel and I’m able to get myself feeling better during those times.”
Stephanie, 34: Back Glute & Hip Pain, TMJ, Anxiety/Panic Attacks, Stomach Upset
“I am feeling back to normal for the first time since the pain began. It really was and is a matter of observing my stress/emotions gently rather than bearing or repressing them. I'm grateful to say the very least.”
Steve, 62: Back Pain, Tinnitus,
Eustachian (ear) Tube Dysfunction
"I’m now running three times per week, after not being able to run since the 90’s. I hiked over 2 miles on a rugged, rocky trail after not being able to hike since 2004. And I’ve just started lifting weights again three times per week. Exercise is a must! Also, I’ve been on two airplane rides and multiple trips up and down the mountain with no (ear/head) pain at all!”
Patrick, 37: Back, Shoulder & Hip Pain
“I had the kind of pain that not only would have ended my career but, for all intents and purposes, my life. The Pain Cure Clinic helped me turn things around. I still have days where my back will feel tense, but I know how to deal with it. For me it was a hard and long journey. But it was and is worth it.”
Rob, 55: Back Pain/Sciatica
“I just returned from my trip to play golf with my business school friends. My body did well and I was able to endure the 6-hour drive both ways and 18 holes of golf on Friday and Saturday. What a joy to be able to have such an enjoyable time! I had to miss last year because I was in so much pain. Golf was unthinkable a year ago. Your counsel and encouragement was extremely important in all of this!”
Calvin, 43: Back Pain/Migraine Headaches
“I read Healing Back Pain 7 years ago and got 100% better. But in 2020 with Covid and lockdowns, the pain returned with a vengeance. I purchased the combo (course plus coaching) but I was pretty much 100% better just by watching the course. Now I can mountain bike again.”
Cheryl, 37: Back Pain
“Sometimes it just helps to talk to someone who has actually cured themselves, like John and Laura, using the mind-body method. It makes it real. John also showed me how to manage my perfectionism and Goodism, so that it did not lead to pain. The pain was gone in less than a month.”
Don, 72: Back Pain
“This coaching validated the mind-body work I’d been doing for years, put in into action and I finally got better!”
Leanne, 55: Back/Neck Pain, Sleep Apnea, Anxiety
“Got my hike in yesterday with my son, on a gorgeous day! We went about 4.25 miles...and my FitBit tells me I climbed the equivalent of 81 floors...so about 800-900 increase in elevation – now it’s time to use the foam roller!”
Bharat, 23: Fibromyalgia/Centralized Pain Syndrome
“During coaching, I revealed that my real dream is to become a stand-up comic. I started practicing my craft at open mike nights — with a big smile on my face. And I have no pain!”
