    "A true Inspiration" I've know Kevin personally for over 12 years, and he's always been a spiritual influence for me in some way, shape or form. He's pointed me in the direction of several spiritual teachers like Eckart Tolle and Gary Zukav, only to name a couple. Kevin's been inspired by many other authors and spiritual teachers that have lead him to the more important questions in this vast life experience. This book is only a starting point for Kevin Jarvis as an author, and if he chooses to continue his journey in writing form, I look forward to reading it :) -Will

    "Insightful, honest and inspiring" I have probably suffered from some form of TMS equivalent for 36 of my 51 years. Over the last 20 odd years I have read many psychology books to try and help alleviate a great deal of unhappiness and anxiety that has been with me, it often seems, since the day I was born. Many books have given me glimpses of my situation and some have even helped to alleviate that unhappiness for a while. Then 18 months ago I suffered a very severe form of TMS with both physical pain and disability. Like many people with TMS I eventually came across Sarno's theories about psychologically induced pain and this made an enormous impact on me. My condition improved and I began piecing my life back together. Kevin Jarvis's book 'Personal Underworld' outlines his journey through TMS and I am extremely grateful to him for having written it. I found his book to be insightful, honest and inspiring. As I read it, so many of the pieces of my jigsaw came together and... More > as he described his 'impostor', his 'false created self', and his 'theme' (in his case a lack of self esteem), I realised for the first time what my 'theme' really has been all these years. And so at last I could begin my journey, to what he refers to as my 'authentic self'. I have been aware for a long time that I needed to forgive others and to learn to forgive myself. This book has really helped me to understand exactly who it was I needed to forgive and what it was that needed forgiving. And my life has improved immeasurably as a result. And from the inspiration that this book has given me I will continue on my healing path, and perhaps like Kevin Jarvis I will be totally pain free. What I do know is that I have found much joy and inner harmony from his wonderful book.< Less

    "Eye opening...thought provoking!" Before reading this book I never realized the impact that TMS could have on a persons' life and how it could alter the perception of physical symptoms in ones' body. Kevin Jarvis was able to bring to life how TMS can alter a suffering patients entire world and leave them in so much pain and despair that they are desperate to try anything to get relief. This book reinforces the notion instead of depending on the newest pill on the market that will bring the 'miracle cure' for what ever ails you, the real cure is within yourself. As a medical professional, Kevins book has helped me gain insight into the deep psychological issues that can influence a patients injury, response to treatment and recovery time. I have recommended this book to many other individuals suffering with recurrent pain and emotional related conditions. I am looking forward to reading other works of Mr. Jarvis' in the near future.

    "The secret. . . . !" I have heard of some of what kevin is talking about and have struggled with my own demon's. Reading this book has brought those demons to light and allowed me a clear perspective on how to deal with them. My anxiety and fear in life has inhibited me from a lot of goals and growing up in a family where medicine and psychology were the common voice, I realize I still have a lot to learn. I love that we create our own path. We are a result of our own thoughts. I lookforward to the next book. I do a lot of counselling both formally and informally and seeing people strugle with physical aligments that are also undergoing great emotional and psychological turmoil but never seem to link the two together. After reading this book it becomes so obviously that the two are linked. I recommend this book to anyone who has ever suffered a headache or a stomach ache from stress or worry. Keep the insights coming. Ken

    "Great help for anxiety/TMS" Kevin's book is a remarkably open and honest recount of his journey through chronic, unexplained pain and the anxiety that accompanied it. I believe this book should be read by anyone struggling to understand their strange, consuming aches and pains, anxiety and its ramifications, and get back to living their life. If you can make the connection between your personality type (self-steem issues, insecurities, people-pleasing) and your symptoms, you are on your way to feeling well again and finding your freedom from these self-induced chains. Kevin's story makes this connection irrefutable and can serve to help those wondering about physical causes come to accept their bodily symptoms as harmless (though, at times, nearly unbearable) indicators of anxiety and anger.
