    Said by Howard at the top of the show today.

    Howard, Robin and Gary continued their assault on Western Medicine this morning. More cheerleading for Dr. Sarno's voodoo.

    It's just astonishing that he can't let go of this cultist delusion after 20 years.

    So if its that easy why does he need so much therapy? He should be able to just overcome his "issues".

    Remember, Dr Sarno "cured" the Wig of his gayness. He's a miracle worker. :c

    My favorite was when he was lecturing JD and I think someone else about curing their insomnia. "Just make yourself go to bed! Lie down and close your eyes. Even if you don't sleep, you are still resting, etc." ... Meanwhile, Howard's popping Ambien every night he's up too late and needs to go to bed right that second.

    I read Sarno's book years ago, I have 3 herniated disks. I'm in pain all the time. Thanks Dr. Sarno

    Sarno only works for the exorbitantly wealthy.

    The peasants must make do with medieval western medicine.

    According to Sarno, such pain is a physical manifestation of a psychological problem that's gone undiagnosed; all physical pain is a coping mechanism. A crutch.

    Oh shit, I'm sorry to hear it. My mom had one and it was agonizing. Let's hope that Howard gets one or two himself. Perhaps he'll change his tune. :rolleyes:

    i'm not sure about dr sarno but this is one time howard is right. back surgery is rarely successful and there are tremendous risks involved in this operation.
    doctors "sell" this surgery because it's a cash cow.

    What does surgery effectiveness have to do with Dr. Sarno's pouch of magic beans?

    What a turd - I herniated a disc in my very lower back and I wanted to die the pain was so terrible - and I'm a goddamn grown ass man.

    Sarno and his sycophants can go fuck themselves.

    Ever since Sarno retired Howard has been on a mad cock tear.
    Sarno clearly calmed Stern cock craving......now he has fallen off the cock wagon.

    What does Sarno say about having a shoulder that feels like there are shards of glass in it whenever you move it?
