America is experiencing an epidemic of pain. One man has the answer to the problem yet the medical establishment has ignored him. For nearly 50 years, Dr. John Sarno has been single-handedly battling the pain epidemic by focusing on the mind-body connection and the nature of stress and the manifestation of physical ailments. With a renowned practice in rehabilitative medicine at NYU he is also a bestselling author of numerous books that deal with psychosomatic disorders. Filmmaker Michael Galinsky's family has a long history with Dr. Sarno and their experience will be woven into the fabric of the film, alongside well known patients, including Howard Stern, John Stossel, Jonathan Ames, Larry David, and many others.
Dr. John Sarno has long been a pioneer in his field, never out to make money or take the easy road. Spending decades of his life encouraging people to look within to find the cause of their pain has not made him rich, but has improved countless lives. The filmmakers shine a much-needed light on Dr. Sarno and his work, and Galinsky also makes it personal, putting himself and his family in the film, and showing the far-reaching effects of Dr. Sarno's work. The filmmaking is done with a steady hand, taking us on this journey in a compelling and emotional way. I truly believe this is required viewing. An excellent documentary on a very important subject.
