About Me

Five doctors, an osteopath and an acupuncturist all provisionally diagnosed me with autoimmune disease (Crohn’s disease, Ankylosing Spondylitis or Celiac disease, depending on who I asked). One doctor told me that I was, 'the worst autoimmune patient I have ever seen.' It must however be noted that I was never officially diagnosed by a specialist, because my appointments were cancelled due to the lockdown; my mysterious illness may have been severe MBS/chronic pain, severe IBS, severe perceived food intolerances, chronic fatigue, brain fog and various other mindbody problems (the list goes on…).

Assuming that I had an autoimmune disease, I was faced with a choice between conventional doctors who say these  diseases are incurable, and the paleo diet/functional medicine crowd who hold out hope for a full reversal of symptoms by maintaining a highly restrictive diet and supplements regime. I opted for the diet approach. This offered temporary relief, but in the long run it led to an unhealthy obsession with food. At my worst, I was wheelchair-bound with chronic hip and back pain. For four months I was unable to eat anything other than 1000 calories of mushrooms, almond milk and cucumbers, because I reacted terribly to all other foods.

My complete symptoms list included: gingivitis, lordosis, wisdom tooth-related infections, anal fissure, haemorrhoids, severe RSI-like hand and wrist pains, urinary pain, anxiety, depression, severe brain fog, IBS-like diarrhoea and constipation, probable severe autoimmune disease, gluten, lactose, soy, starch, onion, nut, egg, and artificial sweetener intolerances, chronic fatigue, chest pain with accompanying shortness of breath, neck pain, chronic low back and hip pain, insomnia, dizziness and infected bug bites. I could only sleep in a sun lounger. I lost about 25 kilos and looked like a prisoner of war. My endoscopy was cancelled due to the covid lockdown.

At that point, it was sink or swim.

Physical treatments had let me down. I was forced to look within for a solution. I prayed to Christ that if he showed me the way to recover, I would spread whatever message he wanted me to spread. Then I was recommended Healing Back Pain, by Dr. John Sarno.

Sarno believed that chronic pain and other conditions like IBS and Fibromyalgia are psychosomatic. Initially, I couldn't accept this and the book was left unread on my nightstand. Then I had a dream. In my dream, I was on a podcast, holding up a copy of Sarno's book saying 'diet is okay, but this is better.' This dream persuaded me to give the book a try. Sarno's core concept is that chronic pain is a distraction from repressed emotions, particularly anger. Acknowledging this defeats the purpose of the distraction strategy and leads to a reduction in symptoms, so long as the patient is aware of the causative link between mind and body. I began to apply Sarno's insight to my own life and immediately got a significant improvement. Over the next 15 months, I did a lot of journalling to release my repressed emotions, especially grief (my dad died from ALS when I was 19). My pain and other symptoms gradually reduced and I slowly increased the foods I could eat, and my range of motion.

Now I am fully recovered. I do not take any medication, herbs or supplements (except one daily Vitamin D pill). I do not eat a special diet. In fact, I eat a lot of junk food. I can run a 10k in 40 minutes, climb mountains, hike 18 miles, and lift weights.

I am now offering my services as a mind-body coach to help others with their mind-body illnesses. Please scroll down for information on how to book a consultation.

Book a Consultation

I am now offering my services as a mind-body coach to consult with others on their mind-body symptoms. The conditions most commonly associated with mindbody syndrome are chronic pain, IBS, brain fog, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), diarrhoea, constipation, fibromyalgia and migraines, but I will consult clients with any stress-related chronic condition. Initial consultations are £120 for 1 hour 15 minutes or £60 GBP for 38 minutes. Clients may choose either option. Bookings can be made via email: rob.rensor1066@gmail.com.

'My' TMS philosophy can be summarised in the phrase, 'knowledge is power', and is all about getting back to the basics. It is inspired by the approach of the late Doctor John Sarno, founder of the mindbody field, with an added spiritual dimension for those who are open to it. Sarno understood the crucial power of knowledge in healing and had a rare genius for not making recovery harder or more complicated than it needs to be. He told his patients that pain was psychological in origin (but physical in manifestation), a distraction from buried stress. Most of his patients did not need to know exactly which hidden emotions were causing their ailments; they merely had to recognise the symptoms and fear as defence mechanisms keeping powerful emotions from surfacing, ignore them and get on with their lives. This knowledge diminished fear, and fear is what keeps the problem going. On the whole, Dr. Sarno did not emphasise meditation or journalling and only referred a minority of his patients for psychotherapy. The majority of those who accepted Sarno's diagnosis of TMS (The Mindbody Syndrome), understood his concepts and were willing to resume normal activities recovered without psychotherapy or further intervention. Doctor Sarno didn't heal them; they healed themselves thanks to a proper understanding of his discoveries. Likewise, all I can do is help to awaken the healer within by sharing information based on my experiences. I like to make the process as simple and clear as possible.

That being said, some people need a method because information and 'not trying' haven't worked. Journalling was a huge part of my recovery and I have learned how to do it efficiently. I can also help to strengthen the will to heal. In my opinion, this is a very important factor.

If that sounds good, I'd be happy to hear from you.

Success Stories

Ozzy

 

Hi all,

I've been browsing this forum for years, but I never thought that one day I would write a success story here.

I think it was 2003 and I had terrible pain in my lower back area and of course I went to the emergency room and they just prescribed me pain killer and sent me home that was all.

After this, my back pain never went away, only the pain changed place. It always shifted, sometimes on my legs, sometimes on my arms and hips.

During these years I was living in the United States, but when I returned to my home country, the doctor diagnosed me with ankylosing spondylitis. I didn't have the slightest idea what it was. When the doctor said that this disease would last a lifetime and that recovery was impossible, it affected me very badly. He told me that I would live with this for the rest of my life and that only physical therapy could alleviate some of the pain.

Of course the pain never went away and I started to search but I couldn't find any cure or method. There were different treatments for back pain, but unfortunately I could not find any treatment other than anti-tnf injections for autoimmune diseases such as ankylosing spondylitis.

I had read John Sarno’s book and even tried it on myself, but unfortunately it didn't work for me. Actually, it seemed to work a little at first, but the pain always came back. Along with the pain, depression and fatigue also started in the later periods. Sometimes the pain went away on its own, but it was in a very short time. In the last year, my shoulder has started to freeze and my movements have become even more restricted.

I think a month ago, while browsing TMS videos on youtube, I saw someone who healed himself with the TMS approach. This person wrote his e-mail address at the bottom of the video and I immediately sent him an e-mail. Because the TMS approach didn't work for me, but someone else got better. this gave me huge hope

This great person contacted me and we had a conversation with him on the phone and we decided to have a session together.

His condition was worse than mine because he also had digestive difficulties. His name is rob and I think he's a member here too. He sent me two of his books he wrote. He has helped me tremendously and I am truly grateful to him. I had read in John Sarno's book that suppressed anger causes pain, but I didn't know I had this much suppressed anger before I spoke to Rob.

Rob played a huge role in bringing out my suppressed emotions and was incredibly helpful in that regard.

In the last week, 80 percent of my pain has gone. I couldn't imagine how this could happen. I know the other 20 percent will get better too, because I've never felt this before. It's really great to feel like this after years of living a painful life.

Now I can move more freely. When I walk, I am not as tired as I used to be. My self-confidence came back after many years...

What I want to tell everyone here is this. Autoimmune diseases such as ankylosing spondylitis may be cured. The TMS approach works. The hard thing for me was believing that ankylosing spondylitis could be cured. But it really works.

Thank you Rob from the bottom of my heart

Thank you John Sarno from the bottom of my heart

Kindest regards

Ozzy

Ego's Odyssey

UK link: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Egos-Odyssey-Ego-Aeonia-Book-ebook/dp/B0BSHD2MT8

Ego’s Odyessy is a psychological fantasy inspired by Greco-Roman mythology.
Following a terrible shipwreck, the young deck-hand Ego washes ashore on the uncharted island of Tyria, in the Olearic Sea. He wakes in the Snake-Temple of Esklepios, suffering from the plague and a broken back. His beautiful and mysterious nurse, Anima, uses very strange methods to heal her patients: she interprets their dreams, dreams sent to them by the god Eskelpios, and makes them talk about themselves. Ego learns that his illness and injuries originate in the mind, not the body, and that to be cured, he must peer into the darkest corners of his soul, and relive the horrors he endured aboard ship. He makes a full and miraculous recovery, but when he moves into the opulent palace of Tyria, and makes the acquaintance of the eccentric hermit Mentor the Madman, he soon discovers that there is more to Anima, the island of Tyria, and life itself, than he could ever have imagined. His physical odyessy may be over, but his spiritual journey has just begun. For Mentor promises to reveal Forbidden Wisdom known only to the gods themselves: the secrets of life, health, magic, enlightenment and immortality.
Not recommended for under 18's.

The Mind Solution

 

UK link: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mind-Solution-Healing-Doctor-Mindbody/dp/B0CFZ9DGGF

'I would advise anyone seeking another piece for their healing puzzle to read The Mind Solution.' – Steve Ozanich

The #1 Amazon Bestseller!

Featuring a foreword by Steve Ozanich, author of the International Bestseller The Great Pain Deception: Faulty Medical Advice Is Making Us Worse and a contribution from renowned mindbody coach Rebecca Tolin, who has written the inspiring story of she overcame Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).

In The Mind Solution: Healing TMS Pain with Doctor Sarno, Robert Ensor tells the incredible story of how he fully recovered from a long list of symptoms, including chronic hip and back pain, many severe food intolerances, extreme digestive issues, anxiety, depression, brain fog and chronic fatigue. His condition was so terrible that five doctors suspected he had an autoimmune disease (Crohn’s disease, Celiac disease and Anklylosing Spondylitis were some of the provisional diagnoses thrown around). One of them even called him, ‘the worst autoimmune patient I have ever seen.’ Elimination diets, medications, herbs and supplements led to increased fear and worsening symptoms. It was not until he found the work of Doctor John Sarno following a desperate prayer, that he began to make progress. Reading Sarno’s books and journaling about unconscious emotions led to a full recovery; Robert can now eat anything he likes, feels decades younger, and regularly engages in vigorous exercise without pain.

Doctor Sarno’s vast clinical experience revealed that most pain and other chronic symptoms were not caused by physical abnormalities, but by stress hidden from sufferers’ awareness, along with fear of the symptoms and the associated physical restrictions. Sarno’s solution was to understand the true nature of the symptoms, resume normal physical activities and, if necessary, heighten awareness of the underlying emotions. Amazingly, this stunningly simple approach has healed thousands, Robert among them. Sarno, an underrated genius, found the solution to the modern epidemic of chronic and mental symptoms. Dr. Sarno’s catch-all term for psychosomatic ailments like Fibromyalgia, chronic back, neck, knee and hip pain, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), indigestion, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and more was The Mindbody Syndrome (TMS). Robert explains Doctor Sarno’s approach with extreme clarity, engaging prose, occasional humour, a solid evidence base, compelling logic and success stories from others who have healed their autoimmune conditions. He also expands Sarno’s theory to other illnesses, such as autoimmune diseases, ALS (also known as Motor Neurone Disease) and dementia, whilst taking a deep dive into the psychological root causes of TMS and bringing a more spiritual, philosophical perspective to the field. It is the book Robert wishes he had when he was sick and contains insights relevant to anyone suffering from a chronic illness or mental disorder, not least because the author recovered from so many of the common psychological and mindbody symptoms. In this book, questions are answered, and the truth is revealed.

Following his incredible recovery from a severe illness, Robert Ensor has written this book to combat information overload by simplifying the hard-won lessons he has learned about healing, manifesting and spirituality.

 

The late Doctor John Sarno revealed that most pain and other chronic symptoms were not caused by physical abnormalities, but by stress hidden from sufferers’ awareness, along with fear of the symptoms and the associated physical restrictions. Dr. Sarno’s catch-all term for stress-related ailments like Fibromyalgia, chronic back, neck, knee and hip pain, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), indigestion, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and more was The Mindbody Syndrome (TMS).

 

Part 1 of this book provides an efficient, clear, step-by-step guide through the TMS healing process from the perspective of a mindbody coach who has fully recovered. The author explains what TMS is, how he healed many of the common mindbody symptoms, how confusion, fear and lack of proper information are at the root of so many modern health complaints, as well as Doctor Sarno's core concepts and how they have been successfully applied.

 

In Part 2, the teachings of sages ancient and modern, including Christ, Hermes, Buddha and Carl Jung are concisely summarized and interpreted, so the reader can easily comprehend their timeless wisdom and put it into practice. The mysteries of spirituality are revealed here with stunning simplicity. And as Occam’s razor is often stated, ‘The simplest solution is usually the correct one.’

May be read as a standalone title.
