    I wanted to give you a link to a podcast that Dr. David Schechter did with the DrunkenTaoist in which he discussed the Mind-Body Connection.

    Here's a direct link to the audio. I'd skip the first 11 minutes because Dr. Schechter doesn't come on until 11:02. Also, the interviewer does swear and the podcast starts off with him swearing.


    Here are some of the topics they discuss:`

    • Howard Stern healing his back by reading a book

    • Asking a different set of questions

    • Knee pain leads to a meeting with Dr. John Sarno and a change in career & life

    • What is TMS and how it affects millions of people

    • How emotions can cause very real, debilitating physical symptoms

    • An alternative to popping pain pills

    • Hi Albert! For floatation tanks in Torrance float clinic

    • Creating a treatment based on the individual in front of you

    • Type T personality. What personalities are most prone to TMS (perfectionism, being hard on yourself, high level of responsibility, being sensitive, etc.)

    • The stages of healing

    • Placebo effect accesses the underlining healing ability of the mind-body

    • A UCLA study being able to accurately predict who will respond to placebo and who will not

    • Therapy and TMS

    • Why chronic pain is worse during middle age than later in life

    • The emotional underpinnings of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Asthma

    • Stress management should be taught in middle school

    • TMS and depression

    Thanks for sharing this, Pam.
    I especially like the part about stress management should be taught in middle school.
