Re: the mind-brain-boy connection […] is the new frontier for knowledge about health.


Obviously, _____ has never heard of Helen Flanders Dunbar, M.D., (1902-1959), the foremost compiler of psycho-neuro-immunological literature the world has ever known.

He probably doesn’t have a clue in a carload about the U.S. Army’s role in PNI during World War II, thanks to the efforts of Brigadier General William C. Menninger, M.D. (1899-1966), or the much earlier extensive PNI investigations of James Braid, M.D (1795-1860), Pierre Janet, M.D. (1859-1947), Havelock Ellis, M.D. (1859-1939), yada yada yada.

The WWII Army set the placebo percentage at 66 percent before Henry K. Beecher, M.D. (1904-1976), coined the word placebo (“I shall please”) in 1955.

There are volumes upon volumes of journals of psychosomatic medicine from the 1890s through the 1940s gathering dust in libraries around the world.
(I’m not even listing the MANY non-M.D. researchers who have made major contributions to the science of PNI.)

The Coal Tar Cartel has cast an amnesiac spell over “modern” psychology and psychiatry to conceal drugless technologies. Daniel G. Amen, M.D., is one of the worst abusers of the mind-body connection – putting the cart before the horse.

Even the research of such medical luminaries as Claude Bernard (1813-1878), Walter Cannon, M.D. (1871-1945, who coined the word PNI), Hans Selye (1907-1982), etc., doesn’t measure up to most of the folks listed above, and the work of New Age quasi-authorities like Candace Pert, Ph.D., and Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., is superficial psychobabble.

Ever New Libraries,

Credit where credit is due ..

… to a few modern-day PNI researchers like Lawrence LeShan, Ph.D., who was hired by Emanuel Revici, M.D. – the source of my “nesting doll” list – in the early 1950s when no one else would hire him, and John E. Sarno, M.D., who accidentally validated Sigmund Freud.

Incidentally, I’m the joker who changed Dr. LeShan’s opinion of Socrates and his wife Xanthippe at a Santa Barbara workshop.

    “In view of the widespread Freud bashing of recent years I may be courting disapproval to state that my concepts descend from Freud’s clinical observations and theories. But I know this only in retrospect, for I did not set out to prove Freud right. My developing ideas were the consequence of clinical observations; they were not based on preconceived notions about the mindbody connection.” – John E. Sarno, M.D.,Professor of Clinical Rehabilitation Medicine at New York University Medical Center
