Placebo, The miracle pill

‚Äč

For hundreds of years, science has downplayed the positive role, that attitude, outlook, feelings, opinions and ways of thinking, can affect a positive change with health issues.  They have emphasized the negative side of thought, as being responsible for many mental and physical problems, but never the benefits of positive thoughts..  Only recently has a new area of study been created, psychoneuroimmunology, that delves deeper into how thought affects the body.

 

Rather than only use the Placebo effect for testing drugs, they are beginning to appreciate the exploration of the Placebo effect, as a drug itself.
