Thinking your way to health, thinking your way to disease


“Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you are right.” That is a great quote by Henry Ford.

The same is very true for your health as well. The placebo effect is very real in all health situations. Researchers have studied the placebo effect for years.

What is an example of a placebo study? Every medication is tested against a placebo “pill” usually a substance like a sugar pill. The placebo is something that should not affect the body in any way. Therefore, you are testing the medication vs. the thought you are taking the medication (when in reality you are taking nothing that will have a physical effect on your body.) The results vary from study to study. In some cases the medication might have a better response, in some cases the placebo might have a better response, and in some cases they might be about equal. The best part is that the placebo has NO side effects, unlike medications. In every case the placebo has NO physical effect on the body, but it makes a difference in the patient’s health. Why?

The power of the mind is incredible. The body believed it was getting better and it did.

On the flip side the power of the mind can also lead to dis-ease or illness. The developer of Chiropractic D.D. Palmer was aware of the power of suggestion and thought it caused injury by creating FEAR in the minds of people who were “diagnosed” as having some “disease.” I am sure we either know personally or have heard of a situation where the doctor gives a patient 2 weeks, 2 months, or 1 year to live and sure enough the person passes on or before their “expiration date.” On the other hand we all know the opposite situation where someone is given 2 weeks to live and they live 1 month, 6 months, 1 year, 5 years or more. Why?

The power of the mind is incredible. Some people take their “expiration date” as fact, and make their plans to die. Other people are not done living yet and think healthy and become healthy. Laughter is the best medicine. A positive approach to life goes a long way towards being healthy.

The placebo effect is real and has a real effect on health. The limitations you have, are created in the 4 inches between your ears. What your mind believes is your reality, good or bad. The great thing is that you change your mind and your reality.
