You Can Heal Yourself – Here Is Proof.

If you have ever heard of the placebo effect, you are aware that there is clear evidence that your body has an innate and powerful self repair system.

Now, in this TEDtalk, Lissa Rankin, MD talks about the scientific and spiritual implications that the placebo effect has on our bodies. Dr. Rankin discusses how our thoughts are able to make significant changes in our physiology when we believe we can get better.

The Spontaneous Remission Project is a huge database of many cases where so called “incurable” diseases have reversed themselves with no explainable medical reason. Over 3500 participants with grave illnesses like HIV, heart disease and cancer had their illness disappear with nothing but placebo treatments.

Dr. Rankin also tells the story of a man named Mr. Wright, who was riddled with cancer and had been given days to live. He was given drugs that he was positive would heal his cancer. His tumors shrunk to half their size within days. However, when a report came out that the drug he had been given was ineffective, he got discouraged and his tumors came back!

Mr. Wright’s doctor sneakily told him that he had a better quality version of the drug and injected him with… water. His tumors again went away!

One key component Dr. Rankin brings up is the almost symbiotic healing relationship between patient and healthcare professional. Studies showed that patients chances of recovering from illnesses went up greatly if their healthcare professionals remained positive, encouraging and hopeful, no matter what treatment the patients did or did not receive. In some studies, these patients were even given fake surgeries, and still got better!

Somehow, another human being giving these patients hope was able to help them transform their thoughts into healing ones. This is a key takeaway point for those in medical healthcare industry, as positive bedside manner and plain old human kindness and compassion may end up doing more wonders for your patients than just medicine and technology.
