Uri Geller 'cured' her blind boy’s sight, believes celeb mother

Recommended Posts

Katie Price has revealed for the first time the moment famed psychic and illusionist Uri Geller 'cured' her blind son Harvey – by doing his famous spoon bending trick.

In an exclusive extract from her revealing new book, Katie Price: Harvey and Me, Katie describes how Harvey was born without an optic nerve - leading doctors to warn her he'd be blind for life.

After running into Uri backstage at the ITV morning show Richard & Judy when Harvey, now 19, was a baby, Katie claims Uri performed his signature stunt, making the unlikely promise that the young boy would one day see.

lol. There is something funny about spoon bending. I don't know how they do it. But I can't say there is no evidence for it.

The article doesn't work for me either: Sorry, we can't serve this content to the country you're visiting from

 

But anyway, as I believe Uri has abilities  to do such things as bend metal in ways not understood by science, it sounds reasonable to me that he can have other effects not understood such as affecting an optic nerve.

According to Wikipedia he has  septo-optic dysplasia which would mean he has an optic nerve that is underdeveloped.

It means the development of the optic nerve is unpredictable. 

Not the same thing.

Not sure what you're saying. Wikipedia:

Septo-optic dysplasia (SOD), known also as de Morsier syndrome, is a rare congenital malformation syndrome that features a combination of the underdevelopment of the optic nerve, pituitary gland dysfunction, and absence of the septum pellucidum (a midline part of the brain).

.."born without an optic nerve"

FALSE.  Was that a deliberate or accidental lie?  Harvey Price was only partially blind as a result of septo-optic dysplasia, which affects the optic nerve.  The condition is generally not particularly degenerative. In rare cases the nerve may get worse but more commonly it will gradually heal itself or improve over time.

Interestingly, I found an extraordinarily large amount of press releases and publicity by/for Katie about Harvey... I shall refrain from commenting about that, beyond noting that most kids with the condition get no publicity, and they most certainly would not benefit from false hope from exposure to the ludicrous claims of Uri Geller, the proven fraud.

Hanging with Harvey. Katie Price has spoken candidly about raising her and her ex Dwight Yorke’s son over the years.

The former model gave birth to her eldest child in May 2002. Harvey was born partially blind with septo-optic dysplasia, which makes his optic nerve development unpredictable. He was later diagnosed with autism and Prader-Willi syndrome, a genetic disorder characterized by obesity.

Partially blind too. Not blind. 

Silly old cow forgot a few details didn't she.

James Twyman had a spoon bending course you could use to learn how to do it.

So spoon bending made a blind kid see - except there was no guarantee he would be blind at all, and is still partially blind anyway.

Cool story Katie.

As many Uri Geller threads that have popped up over this year it's almost a drinking game.
