Is that medicine really good for you, or do you just believe it is? The placebo effect is a controversial topic, insomuch that people falsely accuse certain medicinal oils, pills, or supplements as being useless. But at the same time, there really are some drugs that don't do anything by themselves, yet have the desired effect because of what people trust they do. So what is the truth? How does the placebo effect work? Does it even work?

It is not as simple as answering "yes" or "no", but as we take a closer look at the concept, more light will be shed on the matter, and the benefits, the dangers, and the health effects of it will become clear as glass. Questions, such as the one above and many others, will be answered. You will hear facts and questions like:

  • The very definition of placebos and how to recognize them as what they are
  • Outrageous numbers about how the medicinal industry has scammed millions of customers into buying their junk
  • Whether the placebo effect is actually a good thing and whether or not your beliefs can heal you
  • How the placebo effect relates to weight loss, wrinkle creams, blood pressure, and hypnosis
  • When to be suspicious of placebos and when they are better than actual drugs
  • Sneaky ways in which people sell precious metals and how it relates to the placebo effect
  • Everything else you need to know about the placebo effect

Nobody likes to be fooled, and nobody wants to believe something that isn't true. So if you want to outsmart yourself, the medical industry, and some of those overpriced doctors who try to make a living from people's trusts and fears, you better do yourself a favor and learn everything about the placebo effect to save yourself time, money, and some donkey ears.
