Psychic diagnosed woman with cancer and was right!

Did a psychic diagose a woman for cancer? Not so fast.

Diagnosed by a psychic: Neath mum’s extraordinary cancer story – Wales Online

Natasha Clyant visited medium Diane Lazarus in the hope of getting a comforting message from her late dad – but the medium ended up sensing she had cervical cancer.

And when she plucked up the courage to go to the doctor for a smear test, something she’d always avoided through embarrassment, she was shocked to be told she actually had cervical cancer.

Natasha, who works in a nursing home, said: “My dad died when I was 16 and I liked to hear messages from him. But that day, about two years ago, Diane said she was picking up that I had women problems and that I was going to be OK but I needed to go to the doctor.

Natasha was told she had a Grade 3 cancer, but that they had caught it early, which was positive, but Natasha is so relieved that Diane, who won Channel 5’s Britain’s Psychic Challenge, picked it up, she feels that she has saved her life.

The problem is, we don’t KNOW exactly what the psychic said. She could have been vague and this just matched up as a coincident. Any women this age should be tested regularly for cancerous cells. To me, this seemed like playing the odds, a coincidence. Many women have ‘women problems’, what does that even mean? Could be a huge array of problems, ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, fibroids, etc. A hit is a good bet.

Natasha says she went back to the psychic and this time she was told she’d meet a dark-haired man with a connection to the name Craig. And guess what? Her new boyfriend is a dark-haired man whose brother is named Craig. Unbelievable. If dark-haired men and the name Craig wasn’t actually fairly common, that is.

Psychics often can serve as life coaches or “advisors”. They don’t tell you anything more than anyone non-psychic can.

Women take note though. See your doctor regularly. You certainly don’t need a psychic to tell you THAT!

    I like these old sayings that reflect the possibilities of being right without having any actual knowledge whatsoever:

    Even a blind squirrel finds a nut now and then.

    A broken clock is right twice a day!

    No one runs to the press when the psychic is wrong. (Unless they told you someone was dead and they were found alive.)
    They do play the odds. It’s no more psychic than advertisers choosing a demographic to sell Viagra or pimple cream.

    Natasha’s quotes make it look like the psychic told her she had woman problems, while the author of the article sensationalize the claim by narrowing it down to cervical cancer.

    “…recently she told me that I would meet a dark-haired man, with a fair-haired mum and a connection to the word Craig.” She lives in Wales!

    Even more disturbing is that the psychic assists in murder trials. That is sick.

    Women’s problems – a catch-all often used by psychics, particularly in Britain.

    “My dad died when I was 16 and I liked to hear messages from him. But that day, about two years ago, Diane said …”
    Can we assume that she had visited the psychic before? And therefore there may have been a good chance that she had previously told the psychic she didn’t like smear tests, or any “intimate” tests, so by the psychic saying she had “women’s problems”, there was a high probability there was something that hadn’t been diagnosed.
