The Placebo Effect (Mind over Medicine)

download

Petr Skrabanek said, “the physicians belief in the treatment & the patient’s faith in the physician exert a mutually reinforcing effect & the result is a powerful remedy almost guaranteed to produce an improvement & sometimes a cure too”. Now this is were the physician’s can use placebo to cure any ailment. A placebo (Latin for “i shall please” ) is a simulated otherwise medically ineffectual treatment for a disease or any medical condition intended to deceive the undergoing this treatment.

often, the person given a placebo treatment will have a perceived or actual improvement in a medical condition, a phenomenon called as placebo effect. Basically placebo is anything that seems to be a ‘real’ medical treatment, but it isn’t. It could be a pill, a shot or some other type of fake treatment. One thing that all the placebo’s have in common is that they do not contain any active substance meant to affect your health.

Research on the placebo effect has focused on the relationship of mind & body. One of the most common theories is that the placebo effect is due to a person’s expectation. If person expects a pill to do something, then its possible that the body’s own chemistry can cause effects similar to that a medicine might have caused. So avoid medicines & give yourself a placebo treatment.

Eagles in the storm

            eagle                              

  Did you know that an eagle knows when a storm is approaching, long before

it breaks? The eagle then flies to some high spot & waits for the wind to come.

When the storm hits, it sets it wings so that the wind will pick it up & lift it above

the storm. While the storm rages below, the eagle is soaring above it. The eagle 

does not escape the storm. It simply uses the storm to lift it higher. It rises on 

the winds that bring the storm. Similarly when the storm of life comes upon us

& we experience them, we too  can rise above them by setting our minds &

belief towards god. We just can not let the storms to overcome us, instead

we can allow god’s power to lift us above them. God enables us to ride the winds 

of the storm that bring sickness, tragedy, failure & disappointment in our lives

we can soar above the storm. Remember, it is  not the burdens of life that 

weigh us down, it is how we handle them.

A Simple Introduction To Parallel Universe

Imagine a physicist sitting in a chamber with a gun pointed directly at her head.

Every few seconds, the spin direction of a random particle in the room is measured. If the particle is spinning one direction then the gun goes off and the physicist dies. If the particle is spinning in the opposite direction, there’s just a clicking sound and the physicist survives.

She has a 50/50 chance of surviving, right? This scenario with the physicist and the gun is the start of a famous thought experiment called “quantum suicide,” and it’s one way for physicists to consider if we really are living in just one of many (and potentially infinitely many) universes.

This thought experiment relies on quantum mechanics and the idea that there is no single objective reality. Everything that we see around us is just one possible configuration of all the probabilities of any one thing happening. One interpretation of quantum mechanics is that all the other arrangements of probabilities could exist in their own separate universe. So if you follow the thought experiment all the way through with this idea in mind, then the second that first particle is measured, the universe splits into two universes, based on two possible outcomes: one in which the physicist lives and one in which she dies.Her survival is now tied to a quantum probability, so she’ll be both dead and alive at once – just in different universes.

In simple words for every possible outcomes our personality Gets divided into multiple parts through different universe all with same identities but different future. Recently Hawkings explained parallel universe stuff in a comical way stating “In a random parallel universe zyan malik would still be a part of one direction working on a album of Thiers”.

These multiple personalities do interact in some rare cases giving birth to insane stuffs such as “deja vu”. Our next article would be focusing on this topic in detail stay tuned !!
