The Placebo Effect

Scientific proof of self-healing. Please share to stick it to Big Pharma. "What a wonderful thing, the placebo effect - no side effects and works successfully at least a third of the time. Let's use it, not knock it!" 

The placebo effect is an energetic phenomenon that works when your mind matches the energy of the result you wish to achieve. The placebo effect has been scientifically proven to achieve the following:

Parkinson's disease: Placebo relief is associated with the release of dopamine in the brain.Source

Depression: Placebos intended to reduce depression affect many of the same areas that are activated by antidepressants with the addition of the prefrontal cortex. - Source

Caffeine: Placebo-caffeinated coffee causes an increase in bilateral dopamine release in the thalamus.Source

Glucose: The expectation of an intravenous injection of glucose increases the release of dopamine in the basal ganglia of men (but not women). -Source


Methylphenidate: The expectation of intravenous injection of this drug in inexperienced drug users increased the release of dopamine in the ventral cingulate gyrus and nucleus accumbens, with this effect being largest in those with no prior experience of the drug. -Source

Pain relief:Source

In 1998, a meta-analysis of published antidepressant trials found that 75% of the effectiveness of anti-depressant medication is due to the placebo effect and other non-specific effects, rather than the treatment itself. - Source

"In the majority of trials conducted by drug companies in recent decades, sugar pills have done as well as -- or better than -- antidepressants. Companies have had to conduct numerous trials to get two that show a positive result, which is the Food and Drug Administration's minimum for approval. The makers of Prozac had to run five trials to obtain two that were positive, and the makers of Paxil and Zoloft had to run even more" Source

The placebo effect has also been proven to relieve headaches, allergies, fever, colds, acne, warts, nausea, diabetes, and multiple sclerosis. The power of our minds are amazing. Align yourself energetically with the result you wish to have, and you will dramatically increase your chances of achieving it.
