A small but incredible study demonstrates the power of mind over body. Patients were told they were receiving placebos for IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and many of them fared much better than their control group counterparts who received no treatment at all.
Most surprising was that those patients who knowingly received placebos fared as well or better than patients who received the most powerful drugs for IBS?Do we really need medications which cause all sorts of side effects and must make the body acidic to work? Or should we really be tapping into the power within all of us to heal? I think you know that answer.
Placebos Plus Positive Thinking May Be Enough
