I chose the Placebo Effect because I was really fascinated by how humans explore so many stuff while they till need to explore their bodies and brains. I feel that this effect is relevant and important to everyone because if you think about it, it can change medicine and lead to new discoveries. This can affect more than teenagers, it can affect everyone from the day they become intelligent and can walk and talk. The Placebo Effect for example is that, if someone has a headache and you take a pill or a tablet, and you tell them that it will cure whatever they are feeling and if they believe it, it actually happens. The Placebo Effect is the thing that makes it happen. Even more than headaches! This just proves how much the brain can heal by itself and that we do not need some of the medicines we have now. If only humans could actually tap into their minds then we would probably be much stronger life forms, and don’t forget that evolution can make that better.
I learned that the humans are stronger than even themselves think and that the placebo effect can be expressed in many different ways. You might not even have to buy medicine for your children anymore. What if your children are young and they have headaches or soar throats. Just make something random and SAFE and tell them it will cure them and hey, if they believe it it might just happen. I think that this is a fascinating subject that should be looked into more and should be given more attention. This has changed my thinking in wellness because the placebo can be used in advantage to maybe change peoples habits and cure some of the sick maybe and that wellness just scratches the surface and there are much more medical mysteries that can help the human kind and help them survive and lead on easier lives.
