The Healing Mind: It Makes Drugs And Sugar Pills Work

We all talk about the healing powers of the mind, and a new study has underlined just how important it is. Researchers have discovered that a placebo or sugar pill can be just as effective as a prescription drug Ė provided the patient believes the therapy will work, and he follows the prescription religiously.

Researchers from Alberta University made the astonishing discovery when they analysed the findings of 21 studies that involved more than 46,000 heart patients. Of these, nearly 20,000 were taking a placebo.

But it wasn't the drug or the placebo that determined if the patient lived Ė it was purely down to his decision to stick to the 'three times a day' regime laid down by the consultant. Both groups fared equally as well, and recovered in a similar time.

Only those patients who cheated, and didn't keep to the regime, were the ones who didn't survive, again irrespective of whether they were taking a drug or a placebo. Overall, it's reckoned that one in four people don't take the drugs as prescribed them.

The researchers say that the most important aspect of the findings is drug therapy adherence. It's not, of course Ė it's just believing that something will do you good, and lo and behold, it does.

The mind is like that. We have amazing powers to heal ourselves. Many studies done on the power of the Placebo point to the fact that in a lot of cases, the healing occurs in the patient independent of the power of the drug. This indeed makes drug testing difficult..

I find it comforting that we have that sort of powers to heal ourselves. It gives me hope in finding a natural cure for cancer in the face of the failure of the medical industry and the research labs to find a long-awaited cure for cancer. As they say, sometimes, you just have to take matters into your own hands, and since healing starts within, isnít it time that we reclaimed our power to heal?

In the course of my studies for my PhD in spontaneous healing, I studied thousands of cases of people who have experienced the remission of cancer and a terminal diagnosis to heal themselves without the intervention of traditional medicine. If itís possible for them, then itís possible for all of us, itís just a matter of how. This is what I propose to you in my book Cancer Free For Life. I uncover for you the mechanisms of spontaneous healing so that you too can start healing your life and recovering your health.
