Your Mind is Smarter than You Might Think
A placebo is anything that seems to be a “real” medical treatment — but isn’t. It could be a pill, a shot, or some other type of “fake” treatment. What all placebos have in common is that they do not contain an active substance meant to affect health.
Sometimes a person can have a response to a placebo. The response can be positive or negative. For instance, the person’s symptoms may improve. Or the person may have what appears to be side effects from the treatment. These responses are known as the “placebo effect.”
Eighty three percent or eighty one percent of the people in a depression study that are given a placebo heal as well as the people that are given the actual antidepressants. There are brain scans to show changes in the brain before and after. It means then they’re making their own pharmacy of antidepressants by thought alone.
It took them six weeks eight weeks of taking that placebo every single day. Every time they take the placebo they remind themselves that they’re gonna get better it changed their emotional state sooner or later that becomes their new state of being.
Two to four percent of the time you decide what you want to do you actually make the decision. 96 to 98 percent of the time you don’t!! You’re on autopilot your subconscious mind controls your decisions 96 to 98 percent of the time.
If you can imagine it in your mind , you can experience it in your reality.
Harnessing the power of placebos
Our mindset can affect health behaviors and outcomes. In her 2016 TEDMED Talk, Alia shares her research on placebos and encourages us to consider the placebo effect as more than a mysterious response to an inert substance.
