What I find amazing is how much “science” discounts the power of the mind to affect change.
They call this the placebo effect. And they say it with a sneer and a dismissive attitude so that the world knows that it is not real.
But why not call the placebo effect the power of the mind to heal.
Why not point to it as something amazing. That the mind can be so powerful.
We’ve all heard of placebos. They’re dummy pills. They can’t do anything real. After all, there’s nothing in them.
At least, that’s what we thought.
But in recent years, evidence has built up to suggest that placebos can be highly effective – particularly in treating pain, depression, and even alleviating some of the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
And it isn’t just dummy pills that seem to be able to work: you could get life-changing improvements from a pretend potion that’s actually just water; or perhaps fake acupuncture with needles that don’t even puncture your skin.
