What People Are Saying

Dr. Ali Zaki
As a physician, I have found the nine-step rapid recovery plan quite effective and believe it can be of great benefit to those with chronic or recurrent back and neck pain.
(Dr. Ali Zaki, M.D., F.A.C.O.G., San Jose, California)
Dr. Hussein Al-Hussein
The nine-step recovery plan helped me recover rapidly from 18 months of neck pain and pain and numbness in my arm and fingers. I was able to avoid neck surgery, and today, four years after my recovery, I continue to live a healthy active life.
(Dr. Hussein Al-Hussein, Ph.D, Professor, Computer Engineering, University of California, Santa Cruz)
Judy McConell
Rapid Recovery from Back and Neck Pain will be an important addition to the literature on alternative medicine, made even more meaningful because it recounts the author's own experience with devastating pain and rapid recovery. It focuses on an important issue, is well researched, and very readable
—(Judy McConnell, Director, Health, Welfare, Work/life Programs Office of the President, University of California)

    Amazingly effective!

    The nine-step recovery plan helped me recover very rapidly from my lower back, neck and occasional leg and knees pain. Like others with chronic back pain, I had tried several treatments over the years, but after few months of recovery, the pain used to return. Being a finance professional, the extra stress related with day to day work added to this pain. Reading this book and applying its simple yet effective techniques assisted me in improving immediately and recovering from my back pain in just couple of weeks, and I feel much better than before. I recommend this book to all those who have suffered with back and other body pain over the months/years. This book will help one to be strong not just physically, but also mentally, which in turn will have a positive effect in all aspects of the their lives.

    The Perfect remedy

    This book was the perfect remedy when I had a pain in my right leg that showed nothing abnormal on an MRI and puzzled my doctor, orthopedist, chiropractor and physical therapist. It hurt most especially to drive and run. I was familiar with John Sarno's theories about back pain but that didn't occur to me as a possibility for my leg pain. Even when I finally realized that TMS was the problem, I still couldn't figure out how to start running again. Fred Amir's book was just what I needed. His concrete examples of how to return to physical activity inspired me to try again. This is a great book that I am constantly telling other people about.

    Real relief from very real pain

    This book has just enough new information to solidify everything I had already read and tried to believe about Tension Myositis Syndrome. Although Dr. Sarno's research on the subject left little additional that could be said, he never lived through the long term torturous agony that we have suffered with. Fred is one of us. He has been there and come back from the edge. I've known I have had this syndrome for more than two of the four years I have suffered. The pain I have experienced first hand was worse than anything my conscious mind could dream up. Unfortunately, my unconscious mind is much more sinister, to say it is ic is being too kind. It has tricked me into useless and costly chiropractic manipulations and many acupucture treatments as well as hundreds of wasted hours doing physical rehabilitation and many hundreds of dollars in supplementation to try and stem the progress of osteoarthritis that I don't have. This book is not for people with closed minds. For them there are that will destroy the stomach lining or cause physical addiction that will destroy their lives. Eventually they can have back sugery that may provide temporary relief if they are one of the lucky one percent. Maybe after they've wasted as much time and money as I have the doors to their minds will swing open and embrace the truth. If not, I don't really care...because I FEEL GREAT.

    For Sarno disciples & other chronic pain sufferers - a must!,

    Fred Amir has drawn on Dr John E Sarno's principles of chronic pain management (see: 'Healing Back Pain - The Mind-Body Connection') which, combined with the experience of his personal ordeal and research into natural healing techniques, forms a potent recovery formula. I had chronic back pain for 15 months and painful feet for 5 months. I was disabled. The back progressed well over six weeks under the Sarno principles but plateaued. Fred Amir's book gave me more tangible strategies to work with and I have achieved significant improvement in two weeks, for both back and feet. Like Sarno..it works,only better..get both!

    Works for carpal tunnel too!

    A friend gave me this book and told me it had helped him get rid of his back pain. He said it could help my carpal tunnel. It certainly did. I read it and got rid of years of carpal tunnel as well as the doctors, chiroprators, therapists, pills, shots, etc. Read this book and get well.

    Very disappointed.

    I was very disappointed in this book, after it had been positively reviewed in many Usenet newsgroups. It doesn't cover the subject matter well and seems to give misleading advice. I'd recommend going with another title, such as the ones I list below.

    This book is so helpful!

    I had been suffering with severe back pain, severe pain from siatica (pain in the buttocks and legs from the siatic nerve) and extreme weakness in both legs. I could only walk for a short distance and then with a cane. I had been diagnosed as having spinal stenosis and in need of a laminectomy, removal of most of the back of the vertebra, to release pressure on the nerves of the spinal column on L3 and L4. I also had a herniated disc that required surgery. An orthopedic surgeon reviewed the MRI with me and pointed out how the vertebra was impinging on the spinal cord and causing the pain in my back, sciatica in my legs and weakness in my legs. He also pointed out the herniated disc which clearly was pressing against the spinal cord. Surgery was absolutely essential if I wanted to eliminate the pain and walk again with strength in my legs. I had confidence in the medical profession and I was desperate, Fortunately it would take weeks to schedule surgery. Also fortunately, in the meantime, I read Dr. Sarno's 'Healing Back Pain' and Fred Amir's 'Rapid Recovery from Back and Neck Pain.' I recovered completely and cancelled the surgery. Fred Amir's footnotes were astounding and very informative. One such reference was to a study of 10,000 back operations that found that only one percent of such operations were beneficial. Some were actually harmful. I found that the combination of Dr. Sarno's book and Fred Amir's book, was very effective. I recommend reading both books. I believe that Dr. Sarno gives one the complete history of how the pain is emotionally induced and how one must accept it, but Fred Amir gives one a detailed action program to follow. I still can't believe that I am now completely pain free and have all the strength back in by legs and that I can live a normal life again. I sincerely hope and pray that the word spreads about how it is possible to recover from back pain without surgery.

    A Must for TMS sufferers following DR. Sarno's principles

    Having been greatly helped by DR. Sarno's book towards recovery from a long standing TMS syndrome my condition plateaued and started going backwards. It was then I obtained Fred Amir's book which rapidly took me to a full and lasting recovery. He gives you some simple treatment strategies based on Sarno's principles that allow you to take more positive active control of your own recovery. With just having Sarno's program I felt I was in more of a hit or miss situation. Fred Amir's strategies gave me more of a personal empowering over the TMS. It has taken away a lot of the fear of reoccurrences. I am happy for any one to email me for furthur explanation of my own experience with TMS and for support in your own recovery.

    Fred Amir's book takes Dr. Sarno's work to new heights

    The mind-body connection can and often DOES get at the cause of chronic pain. I know that it works because I have used this approach with good results for many years in my own chiropractic practice in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Fred Amir trained under Dr. Sarno ('Healing Back Pain, The Mind-Body Connection'), then he took the work further, and designed a Nine Step Program to implement it. To really get the most out of Dr. Sarno's program, this book helps the reader to 'put it all together'. People may think that a chiropractor does not want people to know this information, but it is essential to get at the cause of a problem, not just treat the symptoms. I highly recommend this book, and Dr. John Sarno's as well.

    Pain-free after 11 years! It really works.

    After 2 major car accidents and 11 years of back, neck, and leg pain, the rapid recovery plan helped me recover quickly. I recovered so quickly and so well that my family and friends were all amazed. I even applied the techniques to get rid of pain in my wrist, which was operated on twice before, and it worked. If you want to get rid of the pain quickly and live pain-free, then read this book.
