But knowing how TMS feels doesn’t mean you know what to do about it. If you’re not sure where to start, my resources can help you understand your condition and learn how to heal yourself.
First, let’s look a little bit more at what TMS, also known as Mind Body Syndrome, does to your body:
• Your nervous system signals your brain to reduce blood flow to muscles, tissues, and nerves.
• Reduced blood flow lowers oxygen levels in your tissues, causing sudden pain.
If your efforts to get well have seemed to get you nowhere, I completely understand what that feels like. If you’ve been misdiagnosed, misunderstood, and prescribed all sorts of ineffective medications, I have been there too. If you’re at your wit’s end and wondering when the pain will end, believe me when I say:
You are not crazy
You are not imagining this
You are not doomed, cursed, or condemned to a life of suffering – IF you take appropriate action
Thanks for asking! I’m Cecilia Collar: actress, teacher, author, and chronic pain survivor. That’s right, chronic pain survivor. Notice how I didn’t say “sufferer?”
I have experienced firsthand the excruciating, energy-sucking symptoms of Tension Myoneural Syndrome. Shooting aches and pains in my pelvis, sciatic, and back – I was a hot mess and I had no idea what to do about it!
For years, I thought there was no hope for me. I felt defeated and broken. Doctors couldn’t help me and my family didn’t know what to do.
I’ve lived a life where TMS made day-to-day living pure misery…
…AND I’ve come out on the other side. I’ve learn real, practical ways to manage how my mind and body respond to each other – and that’s made all the difference. I’m back in control of myself, and I simply can’t tell you how great that feels.
I’m not suffering anymore. I’ve survived TMS, and I’m thriving!
It was so frustrating to me that I couldn’t find much information on TMS or how to treat my condition. Frankly, most medical professionals either downplayed my symptoms or offered temporary solutions that never truly addressed what was going on in my body. If I had a dollar for all the skeptical looks and useless prescriptions I’ve been given, I could retire early!
Thankfully, I discovered research from Dr. Sarno of New York University, and his perspective on pain management for TMS completely changed my life.
I am living proof that Dr. Sarno’s approach works. And according to his findings, 80% of TMS patients can be cured once they understand their diagnosis and make the effort to learn techniques that address TMS in both mind and body.
It took a while, but I’ve finally learned how to heal my symptoms – and you can too.
What I’ve learned in my chronic pain journey just might be what helps you overcome your own TMS. That’s why I’ve written my book: The Path to No Pain.
There is no magic pill.
No secret formula.
No knight in shining armor or mysterious benefactor who can swoop in and save the day.
There’s just you, your TMS, and your will to break free from the cycle of suffering.
The first step is simple: arm yourself with information. Educate yourself now, so that you can progress towards a pain-free future. It is work, but it is worth it.
I said goodbye to pain and negativity. YOU can do the same.
