At a hospital where I studied, this was part of the things I observed.
Medicine sometimes will not work on a patient. It works on others but not on a particular one.
If that particular one is given mental attention even as mild as brief Freudian analysis, it will be found that medicine will now work on [...]
Dianetics for advanced Scientologists is called New Era Dianetics for OTs or NOTs. Here Scientology makes the claim that NOTs auditing cures unwanted somatics1, i.e., physical conditions and unwanted aches and pains.
One of the steps of Audited NOTS consists of hundreds of approaches to handling the sources of somatics and physical [...]
Dianetic auditing particularly lends itself to specific situations. For instance, a pregnant woman should be audited on emotions and somatics relating to birth or babies before delivery. We used to simply audit the girl’s own birth and any past births (R3R)1. Then immediately after delivery the engram is run out. Handling [...]
The basic use of Dianetics is to make a well body and to augment physical treatment.
Any injurious experience can be erased by Dianetics. It is very easy to use and if one wants people well and happy it should be used at every occasion.

Equipped with this book alone the student of the mind could begin a practice and perform seeming miracles in changing the states of health, ability and intelligence of people.
No such knowledge has ever before existed and no such results have ever before been attainable by Man as those which can be reached by a study [...]
The funny part of it is that there is evidently, at least on some cases, something earlier than the beginning of track. Back there you will find there may be charge on some sort of an ejection from another universe. I don’t care how you evaluate this or anything else: If it is there and [...]

In these simple techniques it may be difficult discover the depth of data which is Scientology, just as it was difficult in the complicated techniques of Dianetics to discover a simple therapy.
Dianetics was a productive field, a very valuable step, but it was experimental in application. Scientology [...]
Dianetics is the science of thought. The scope of Dianetics includes all valid data pertaining to thought. Far simpler than man supposed, the workings of the human mind and knowledge itself became, in Dianetics, a body of knowledge with which any reasonably intelligent individual can work.
