Today I’d like to talk about the Placebo Effect. It has been well researched in the medical community, and yet many neglect to talk to their patients about it.
It is a suggestion. The power of our thoughts to believe something it was told. In a study done with patients with duodenal ulcers, patients were told they were receiving the latest and most effective drug in the marketplace. 70% of those patients saw remarkable improvement. In a another group they were told they were receiving a drug that was brand new and still in it’s infancy in knowing how effective it would be. In that group 25% of those patients saw remarkable improvement. In both cases, the pills were nothing more than sugar pills.
This study, along with many others points to the power of our subconscious mind. It is home to our thoughts, beliefs and imaginations. This is where I work as a hypnotist. If there are things you want to explore in your subconscious mind, give us a call at The FARE Hypnosis Center.
