Any success with The Way Out by Alan Gordon or books by John Sarno MD?

Has anyone tried the mind-body techniques outlined by John Sarno MD in his book The Mindbody Prescription or The Way Out by Alan Gordon and found relief from their chronic pain? Some Amazon reviewers gave glowing descriptions in their reviews, and other were dismissive. I have fibromyalgia and doctors aren't able to provide much in the way of pain relief.

The Way Out. The book does help with neuroplasric pain for sure.

Can you offer more detail on exactly what helped you? Thanks.


The book explains how to identify neuroplastic pain from pain that may require pharmaceutical, surgical or physical therapy type treatment. The techniques helped with pain that I was able to identify as neuroplastic. One needs to try the technique. May not be your case but some people have had good results. Including me.
