The Placebo Effect
As long as you truly believe a pill will have a certain effect - it does! Many researchers have shown that people who strongly believed an effect would happen had the effects without a real cause. This is known as the placebo effect, and to make things even weirder it appears to still work even when you know you???re taking a sugar pill!
Oh, and it???s not just pills ??? the placebo effect also works if you think you???ve had surgery but the crucial step is missed out. Yep. Even if you believe that you'll truly feel better, you will!
