In the modern age where self-thinking and constant criticism are sanctified, it isn't easy to make people believe blindly!
" I hear, and I forget. I see, and I remember. I do, and I understand."
Confucius (551 BC – 479 BC) was a Chinese teacher, politician, and philosopher. By Simran Khurana (Updated March 18, 2017)
The power of the placebo effect - Emma Bryce.
The placebo effect reflects an attempt to positively affect symptoms of diseases using nonactive substances that have nothing to do with the patient's illness.
The mechanism of action of the placebo effect is autosuggestive, and therefore it requires a firm, almost blind belief! The placebo effect (when it succeeds) strengthens the life-force energy. Quite similar to strong love or great happiness.
- The placebo effect is most often used as a control group in clinical trials without the patient knowing whether he has received the truth drug or the placebo substances.
- The placebo effect has not been scientifically proven, in my opinion, from a lack of understanding of its mechanism of action, which requires adjustment in conducting the tests.
Very religious people exercise the same abilities, mainly because they believe.
- When we pray in complete faith, we activate the meditation mechanism and improve our autosuggestive ability. Life-force energy is the expression of the meditation mechanism.
Shamanic priests perform the autosuggestive treatment (kind of hypnosis), whose result is similar to a deep prayer!
- There are many similarities between shamanic rites, voodoo rites, and Indian and Aboriginal rites based on autosuggestion.
Clergy may get angry at the comparison, but the link is a firm blind faith.
Examples of common treatments based (in my opinion) on the placebo effect.
- Homeopathic treatments are shrouded in a great mystery. In practice, they are distilled water with zero concentration of active ingredients. They are, by definition, based on the placebo effect.
- Bach flowers (pollen scent) here, the determination is not unequivocal, but the stamens' smell and substances alone have no proven healing abilities. (Although there may be a psycho-chemical effect)
- Guided imagery is a meditative technique that works mainly when the patient believes he is healed.
The disadvantage of the method of treatment using the placebo effect is in its mode of action.
- The need for an almost blind, firm faith is not suitable for everyone.
- Homeopathy experts claim that the treatment is also effective against cancer; they may be right! But equally, shaman's treatment may be no less effective if the patient does believe that the treatment will help him in blind faith.
"To live is to have Qi in every part of your body.” To die is to be a body without Qi. For health to be maintained, there must be a balance of Qi."
Paradoxically treatments based on the placebo effect (such as homeopathy) do not state this, as otherwise, the effect may disappear!
