    I remember seeing a clip about that where he rambles on about back pain being some mental condition...

    Here's how Howard cured his back pain, which he writes about in Miss America:

    "On the way into work that morning, my back really began acting up. I had excruciating shooting pains running up and down my back. So I started laughing. I was laughing hysterically at the pain. And in one split second, it vanished. Totally. It was gone."

    [​IMG]

    He tells Ronnie the Limo Driver that he's just been cured of back pain.

    "It just went away like that?" Ronnie asks. "Sure, whatever you say ..." Howard says he never had back pain again from that day forward.

    But it doesn't end there. For some reason, Howard concludes that Sarno can also cure homosexuality, which Howard believes is a distraction from psychological issues -- just like back pain. In an interview with New York Magazine, he says: "Back pain and homosexuality are identical. No more, no less."

    [​IMG]

    "And then I remembered something else from my childhood," he writes in Miss America. "My father used to get tremendous back pain. It was so intense that he had to be in traction in a hospital for weeks at a time."

    Like father,

    like son.

    Is Dr. Sarno part of the "getting things done" movement?:bigthink

    Sarno was Howard's first cult.

    Now it's Getting Things Done.

    It's clear he gets obssessive about things and focuses on them until he burns out: See: Chess, photography, painting, masturbation.

    those photos are so weird. And after Caitlyn Jenner it doesn't really seem like it was all a gag.
    Both those photos seem like they took it a little to far for normal dudes

    It's actually a great theory and very no-nonsense. Yes, he says there are millions of cases of legitimate tissue or bone damage and real pain like in your construction workers. He doesn't think a broken bone is all in your head.

    But for white collar folks -- for most of them it's all in their head. "In their head" in the sense that the brain controls blood flow to parts of your body and similarly controls pain. He basically told Howard, "You don't do any rigorous physical activity and you weren't in an accident. So it's probably in your head, you moron. Your brain is trying to distract you from something... like maybe you want to get a divorce. Who knows. Talk to a therapist. I really don't care. I'm just telling you there is no physical reason for your pain. So quit being stupid you moron. Now get out of my office!"


    If you're white collar and have neck pain, back pain, etc, I suggest reading this book.

    When I heard the 1993 interview Howard did with Janis Ian I was more convinced than ever that Howard was hinting his gayness was cured by Dr. Sarno. A few comments and quotes (from an old post I made):

    Howard said that homosexuality is not genetic, that he knows this to be true and has proof. He said that he came to the conclusion within the past year and the cure is almost instant - "It will lift off them in 3 seconds and they will love women".

    According to Howard, homosexuality is like back, eye, and knee pain (along with sore throats, migraine headaches, and OCD) - all are psychological disorders and "elaborate distractions from the pain of life". "If someone wants to fix themselves it's possible." "I have fixed myself to a degree." "I understand how it's fixable." "I know the guy who can fix it. He doesn't even know he can fix it."

    Howard went on to say that he used to have OCD and back pain but it was cured by Dr. Sarno - "This person cured me of many things he didn't know he cured me of".

    Based on that, I got the impression Howard thinks that Dr. Sarno unknowingly cured him of homosexuality while treating him for back pain/OCD. Of course, we all know the OCD wasn't completely cured and I suspect the homo cure didn't work either.

    Sarno called into the stern. During the call Howard said Sarno can cure things that he doesn't even know he can cure.
    Sarno says.....lets not go there Howard.
