Placebo Effect


For those in doubt of our self-healing abilities, what about the placebo effect,

recognized by all the medical establishment.?

If those in the control group show signs of healing without the actual drug being tested being administered, then

didn’t they somehow heal themselves?

The placebo effect points to the importance of perception and the brain’s role in physical health.” (Wikipedia)

A placebo described as a muscle relaxant will cause muscle relaxation and, if described as the opposite, muscle tension. A placebo presented as a stimulant will have this effect on heart rhythm, and blood pressure, but, when administered as a depressant, the opposite effect.” (wikiepedia)

So what is the placebo effect, but people affecting their own healing? Doctors triggering our unconscious healing powers. I believe we can enhance that ability.

First by acknowledging it.

Don’t be shy.

Disclaimer: I’m not saying to disregard other healing modalities, just that we need to consider our hidden potential to aide in our recovery.
