· MILLIONS HAVE IMPROVED THIER LIVES DRAMATICALLY AND PERMANENTLY WITH DIANETICS TECHNOLOGY!
"I had a terrible accident and fractured my neck, and as a result was in a terrific amount of pain. The doctors did everything that they could to try and handle it, and while my neck did heal, the pain persisted. I began to take drugs to suppress the pain, and I became hooked on drugs. That was the end of my motorcycle racing career.
"Then I found Dianetics and I found that the pain was in fact coming from the reactive mind, because Dianetics handled it. And I was no longer hooked on drugs when the pain was gone.
"I started racing motorcycles again - this was ten years after the accident - and I went right to the top in racing motorcycles here in the United States. Then I began training others and in fact I've trained ten of the last twelve national superbike champions. None of this would ever have happened it it wasn't for Dianetics."
K.C., Champion Motorcycle Racing Instructor
"My marriage was headed for divorce. And even though we loved each other, something had come between us and we didn't know what it was. We tried everything. We went to a marriange counselor, we even went to a psychiatrist and the end result was we still were headed for divorce.
"So just when I was about to file the final papers, a close friend or ours insisted, absolutly insisted, that we try Dianetics. And that was when we knew what had come between us - it was the reactive mind. So not only did Dianetics give us the tools to save and rebuild our marriage, but we love each other more today than the day we got married."

I suffered for years, ever since I was a kid, from sinus pressure. It would get so bad, I couldn't even bend over to pick up a pencil! And as a result, I'd have migraine headaches. Dianetics handled the source of my headaches - the reactive mind. I can't explain the feeling that I had at that time. The pressure just blew. I could feel it come off my face and it was such a relief. I walked around for months thinking, 'Okay, when's it going to come back? When's it going to start?' It never did. It was just gone."
"Dianetics enabled me to realize my potentials and find the success I had always sought."
K.B., Top Investment Counselor
"When I was 14 my life became an uphill struggle. A severe injury left me with a crippling back pain 24 hours a day. I was told I would require treatment for the rest of my life and I wold have to live with the pain. Over the next 12 years, I Iooked everywhere for a solution. I even became a Doctor of Chiropractic, but still nothing could make the pain stop. Finally, I tried Dianetics, and I found that the pain was being caused by the reactive mind. Within a few hours I stood up and, for the first time in 12 years, the pain was gone. Dianetics has the answers!"
