Yes, pills clearly labelled “placebo” are shown to still WORK! In this experiment twice as many people taking placebos experienced relief (irritable bowel syndrome) as those taking no placebo in a control group, results comparable to the STRONGEST DRUGS!

They are not sure why, it may be the ritual of taking the pill. The results throw suspicion on those drugs that are not placebos as well, to what degree are they beneficial for reasons of placebo and otherwise inert or harmful?

Now the reason to speak on this in the context of this site, a magic meet business theme – is that the proof of placebo effect is relevant. Because if you don’t believe in magic, if you discount quantum mechanics as irrelevant compared to Newtonian physics – what I’m left with is a psychological explanation for why results manifest – and now, with real scientific proof of placebo power – that psychological explanation has teeth.

Of course it is still an article of faith that placebo can manifest coincidence in the world and not just in yourself – but if you can believe in a model of interconnectedness of people, animals and place – it’s not an awfully big stretch.

Meanwhile I’m looking to procure some sugar pills to make me smarter, stronger, faster and a more efficient hunter… lol!
