Placebo Effect / Response

I don't have the technical knowledge to judge the objectivity of this article, but assuming it's generally true, it's fascinating. Things like the placebo effect increasing over time, the response working for protracted periods, the nocebo effect (learning about potential side-effects increases your chance of contracting them), etc.

I am so excited about the promise of understanding -- and then harnessing -- psychosomatic interactions in the future.
