The placebo effect is real

The placebo effect is real

Did you know that putting a pinch of sea salt in water will help curb your appetite?

More often than not, such hacks work because of the placebo effect, the oldest medicine in the world.

Placebo tricks you into thinking something works when it’s really your belief at play. The mind willfully dictates the body.

Placebo also demonstrates the power of using our inner narrative to manipulate real-world results. It is fictional confidence at play. But it also means we can control our feelings with a little bit of storytelling.

The mind has the capacity to influence the future by changing your current thoughts and actions. The placebo effect is, therefore, a choice; it one hell of a drug!
