It's Only The Placebo Effect


Take care in your thinking...your mind and body are listening.

What do you think is more important for your health...taking care of your body or taking care of your mindset?  Since this blog is titled "It's All In Your Head", you know where I stand.  And slowly but surely, the medical community is starting to come around. 

I recently watched a PBS Special, "Heal Yourself: Mind Over Medicine" presented by Lissa Rankin, MD.  Happily, I found she and I are united in the belief that the mind is more important than the body since it is responsible for what's going on.  

For years, I have known that the mind is more powerful than most of us realize...I have seen results first-hand.  My own injuries have responded to my thoughts.  But wait...there's more.  Time after time, studies have shown patients respond to what doctors tell them...good or bad.  They get better or, sadly they don't.  It's the patient's own belief that creates the environment for healing or not healing.

Follow this link to a video of Dr. Rankin discussing the healing power in each of us, if only we believe.       Dr. Lissa Rankin
