Local classes teach how to heal what ails you

Feb 05, 2014

Chronic pain has become an epidemic in this country. According to the National Institutes of Health, pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined.

And yet, pain is among the most difficult health issues to treat successfully.

If they can’t find the cause, they may tell you it’s all in your head. And maybe they’re right!

Over the past 40 years, a handful of doctors who work on different areas of the body in different parts of the world have come to the same conclusion: our emotions have a much greater impact on our health than most of us realize. Thus, if you heal the mind, you can heal the body.

Dr. John E. Sarno, Professor Emeritus of Rehabilitation Medicine at the Rusk Institute of the New York University School of Medicine, was one such trailblazer.

He began to realize that those who were not helped by conventional treatments carried emotional pain, too.

He developed a program to help them discover and address their emotional issues, and 90 percent of the time their physical pain waned or even disappeared.

For the past two years, Edmonds Vitamins and Herbs in downtown Edmonds has been sponsoring classes and workshops that teach the expressive writing techniques that Sarno and others have found can resolve the negative thoughts and emotions that impact physical and psychological health.

Ted Neff leads an amazing class in expressive writing. I find expressive writing to be a healing modality that can bring healthy results to our minds and bodies. I highly recommend classes and workshops with Ted Neff.
