There are scientific evidences that the mind can heal the body. The Institute of Noetic Sciences compiled a database of thousands of cases that people got better or cured from incurable diseases with the power of their mind.
Our mind is much more powerful than we know it. Our mind can heal us (placebo effect) or can destroy us (nocebo effect). Placebo effect is a scientific term that clearly states that there is a healing power in the body/mind that we can tap into. Placebo is an inert substance such as sugar pill that scientifically should not do anything positive to the body but when patients given placebo pills most of them respond positively.
Is there scientific proof we can heal ourselves? Lissa Rankin, MD
