Non-violent Communication

by Marshall Rosenberg
An invaluable book on how to get in touch with what we are feeling and how to communicate to the other in truth, without blaming ourselves or the other and how to ask for positive change.

Health and Well-Being

Pain Free

Pete Egoscue, Bantam Books

This is one of the best books on pain I’ve ever read. M. Egoscue shows us how the body should be aligned with the main articulations for proper load bearing and healthy movement. He explains that pain is a result of muscles compensating for others that have atrophied due to misuse or lack of use. He goes on to show us how many problems in one area of the body, such as the feet, are caused and related to other joints. He gives easy practical exercises to bring this back to health. I highly recommend it if you have any kind of joint pain. There are Egoscue pain clinics throughout the US. I personally visited one in San Francisco and am working with the program for my back pain.

 

Healing Back Pain

by Dr. John Sarno

In this book, Dr. John Sarno introduces the Tension Myositis Syndrome, which is in effect a trick that the brain uses to create pain in the body in order to help us avoid having to face undesirable emotions. He goes on to show how by simply being conscious of this that healing can happen.

I highly recommend this book.

The Divided Mind – The Epidemic of Mindbody Disorders

by Dr. John Sarno

This book is a treasure! Dr. John Sarno explains how many common and chronic pains, including such conditions as Fibromyalgia, are in fact caused by a condition called TMS (Tension Myositis Syndrome), which is a way the brain creates pain in the body in order to help us avoid repressed emotions. Persons that are particularly vulnerable to this condition are those that tend to want to do good and those who tend to want to do things perfectly.

In this book he presents the syndrome and gives a detailed account of his program to overcome these conditions, without drugs, exercise or surgery. Then follows reports on several MD’s that have successfully used this diagnosis and treatment method for their patients.

Many people heal just by reading his books once they understand what is going on.
