”No matter what the disease, many patients’ belief in the drug, or the surgery, or the healer, triggers healing. Belief itself can kill cancer cells, banish depression, lower blood pressure, clear up rashes, strengthen muscles, improve memory.
So what effect does it have on healing if the system makes you feel helpless, itemized and doomed? And by the same token — do herbs, acupuncture needles, quartz crystals or extracts of apricot pit really work, or do they simply trigger that same cascade of healing belief?”
