USE YOUR MIND
How many tablets do you take? We all take tablets for headaches and other illnesses. But are they really necessary The big drug companies make the drugs and tablets that we buy to fight our health problems. But could it be possible that many of these drugs and tablets are only good for the bank balances of the drug companies and that there are better ways for us to get over our health problems? According to some experts we should use the power of our minds.
Since the 1950s there have been experiments using placebos. Placebos are tablets which do not have an effect on the body, so they shouldn’t be able to make us better. In the experiments some patients in the group receive real drugs for a health problem, while others receive the placebo. No one knows who has the real drug or who has the placebo. In a significant number of these experiments the patients who haven’t received the real drug get better! People think this is perhaps because they are thinking positively and believe they will get better – so they do!
So, can we ‘think’ ourselves better? Perhaps the big drugs companies should start worrying!
