This post will help you. Honest

A study published in the journal nature human behavior with the intriguing title of Socially transmitted placebo effects has concluded that nearly anything your doctor does that you read as encouraging sign can actually help your treatment work better.

In other words, the placebo effect, which is not only real but I believe also quite powerful, can be harnessed simply by your health care helper – your doctor, your nurse, maybe even your spouse – setting up the feeling in you that whatever you’re doing to get better will be effective.

Quite simply, and this is just plain old common sense to me, you gotta believe, and if someone also helps you believe, you have a better chance of healing.
