On my journey with TMS, one of the most challenging aspects has been watching others suffering and knowing that if they only understood the science of TMS, it could help them too. Watching people you love suffer and knowing that just a few incredibly simple, scientific facts, could remove their symptoms is torturous. I hope the contents of this blog do a little to change that, open minds and change opinions.
I fear that this sounds arrogant and dogmatic; but I’m not talking about belief, or religion, or even possibilities. I am talking about rock solid scientific facts, that people simply do not know exist. To me it seems akin to when people once thought the world was flat. Now, no one disputes that this planet is, in fact round. TMS is the same. Learning about it will change your life.
At the moment instead of accepting TMS as fact; people say ‘ah well that alternative-approach helped you, it wont help me’ etc. and whilst I fully appreciate that everyone is of course different, TMS treatment is not ‘an approach’. It is scientific fact. No one would call the penicillin break through an approach. It was a scientific breakthrough seen as a fact which saved lives. The TMS diagnosis is, to my mind, the same. Until the majority of humanity starts to see it as such, we are going to continue wasting time, money and energy on mis-guided attempts to manage pain. And the world will ultimately remain full of people in agony. The Science of TMS will put an end to the epidemic of chronic illness, if we let it.
With that in mind I have been incredibly excited to see a new documentary being made to bring worldwide attention to TMS; ‘All the Rage’ Ten years in the making, All the Rage began as a profile of Dr. John E. Sarno, the Doctor who is credited with discovering TMS and it has expanded into an exploration of the connection between our emotions and our health. This film has the potential to shift the discussion about healthcare in a profoundly positive way.
