The Placebo Effect - BBC

Posted , 2 users are following.

CURES have been effected by suggestion and belief (BBC TV Programme). The methods don't work with everyone but the placebo and suggestion methods work well enough to be taken seriously by medical professionals; since like taking real drugs, believing that the methods work is not necessary, for the "placebo-type cures" to work.

My work in teaching thinking skills relates to improving both mental and physical health.
