Wired recently published an interesting article: Placebos are Getting More Effective. Drugmakers are Desperate to Know Why.
The parts that intrigued me the most are the differences in placebo results in varied geographical and cultural regions (differences in beliefs!), as well as the idea that conditioning people to believe in drugs via media like television commercials also contributes to the effectiveness of placebos – programming is programming, eh?
To me, all of the information points to the power of the mind, of course – any placebo is really a reason or justification that the rational mind can accept for why a condition can now change. In the article, the implications are there, just between the lines. 😉
Anyway, it’s an interesting article, especially when viewed from a reality creation / law of attraction point of view. Click here to read the entire article.
