Placebo Hypnosis

Excerpt from ABC News Medical Unit by AUDREY GRAYSON

In a survey of 679 general internal medicine physicians and rheumatologists, researchers from the National Institutes of Health found that about half of the doctors admitted to prescribing placebo treatments without informing the patient.

I find this very interesting because to me it proves that doctors understand the power of the mind.  And they use it to benefit their patients.

It’s the old saying, what the mind expects to happen tends to be realized.  When you know something is true as opposed to I “think” this is true, or I “hope” this is true you will experience a much different outcome.

If you’re convinced that the little blue pill will fix your ills, most of the time it will regardless of what it is.
