Examples abound of the amazing influence placebos can have on the mind and body.
One rather interesting study is from a group of doctors in Texas who were doing arthroscopic knee surgery on patients with sore knees. They divided the patients into three groups. With all three groups they applied general anesthesia and made cuts in the knee. Then for…
· Group #1 they scraped out the knee joint
· Group #2 they washed out the knee joint
· Group #3 they did nothing else besides the anesthesia and the cuts
Amazingly, two years after the surgery, the individuals in group 3 reported the same amount of relief from pain and swelling as groups 1 and 2!
This study further supports the incredible powers your mind has over your health and wellness. A power you can take advantage of through positive thinking and staying committed to a consistent mind body practice.
