Healing With The Power Of Placebo

Healing With The Power Of Placebo

Always keen to distribute information that might help people, here is an article about healing with the Placebo effect

  • Trials show people often react to placebo in nearly the identical manner as an actual drug. Placebos have been shown to produce the release of a variety of brain chemicals, mimicking the effects of drugs:
  • Placebo or sham surgery has been shown to produce results that are equal to actual surgery, even though the physical problem is in no way addressed
  • Placebos enhance athletic performance by about 3 percent, which can translate into taking gold in the Olympics versus failing to place in the top 10
