The Placebo Effect

Ever heard of the saying mind over matter? Well turns out there’s something to it. Studies have shown that placebos, basically a pill without medication to measure the effectiveness of real medicines in trials and clinical studies, can actually help reduce real pain.

Many scientists theorize that when the patient believes they are taking the real medication then they will experience the medications effects. It’s more of a mind game then anything really. And tricking the brain has been done for ages.

Essentially, what the body does is convince itself the medication is working. Many people can create similar effects by just deeply concentrating. If you’ve ever seen a man walk across burning coals, or stand under a freezing waterfall for longer than humanely possible then you’ve witnessed the effects of the brain. Given when someone can turn this “power” on and off they have some serious skill. Either way the power of the brain is truly remarkable.

It really is quite interesting to see what the brain can do when it is tricked into believing something. How the brain can somehow, miraculously lessen pain even when no medication is being taken. Placebos are used in medical studies to rule out the power of the brain and to determine the real, or as close to real, effectiveness of the drug.
