Placebos: the lies we make true

Placebos are the lies we make true #gif

What the mind believes, the body can achieve. Look no further than a placebo who’s sole power is in its real effects.

If it’s broken, only then do you fix it. But placebos work just as an app’s colors dupe the brain into submission. The slightest taste of sugar helps the medicine go down.

The placebo is cleverer than any of us. It works for no other reason than the belief that it’s supposed to. We are skilled storytellers, especially when we’re full of shit.
