Placebo effect

Dummy "placebo" pills can bring real improvements to patients suffering from common complains such a migraines, even if they know the pills are not real, scientists have found.

Studies in the US suggest that placebos may cause changes in the body and the mind. New research suggests the placebo effect persists even when patients are told they are taking a placebo.

So it is not really medicine that heals, it is the mind that heals when it is changed.

A patient has to change his mind.

He must decide to do something about something.

And the mind is directed by the will.

It is the will that makes the decisions in our life.

And because the will has often problems with such abstract things like the mind and how to change it, it is useful to use an aid like a placebo, or a point of contact, that gives some sort of physical evidence to a decision and a certain point in time that marks the decision made.

It is an act of your will.

So in order to be healed and to be healthy we have to apply our will; that is all.

So the real doctor makes the patient change his will.

So real healing is always changing the will.
