This is a real example of how your mind can kill you

Maybe you’ve heard of placebo, which is in simple words, your mind through unshakable belief and trust will heal the body without any real medication. In experiments people received a sugar pill being told is the real medication that will help their illness and they really believed that now they are healed and the mind started healing the body.

Robert Buckman, a clinical oncologist and professor of medicine, concludes that: “Placebos are extraordinary drugs. They seem to have some effect on almost every symptom known to mankind, and work in at least a third of patients and sometimes in up to 60%.

But have you heard of nocebo? It’s the opposite of placebo. Instead of your mind and belief healing you, it kills you and here is a real example.

In one case study from 2007, researchers noted an individual who attempted to commit suicide by swallowing 26 pills which he believed were antidepressants. Although they were merely placebo tablets without a biological mechanism to harm the patient even at such a high dose, he experienced dangerously low blood pressure and required injections of fluids to be stabilized, based solely on the belief that the overdose of tablets would be deadly. After it was revealed that they were inert capsules, the symptoms went away quickly.

Here is another example where someone really died.

In 1936, in India, recounts Nobel Laureate Bernard Lown in “The Lost Art of Healing,” an astonishing experiment was conducted on a prisoner condemned to die by hanging. He was given the choice instead of being “exsanguinated,” or having his blood let out, because this would be gradual and relatively painless. The victim agreed, was strapped to the bed and blindfolded.

Unbeknownst to him, water containers were attached to the four bedposts and drip buckets set up below. Then after light scratches were made on his four extremities, the fake drip brigade began: First rapidly, then slowly, always loudly. “As the dripping of water stopped, the healthy young man’s heart stopped also. He was dead, having lost not a drop of blood.

This is how powerful belief is. If you want hundreds of researched examples of how people with cancer healed themselves without any medication, I highly recommend you to look into Spontaneous Remission: An Annotated Bibliography book which was the largest database of medically reported cases of spontaneous remission in the world, with more than 3,500 references from more than 800 journals in 20 different languages.

Here is an example from this book where the same person healed themselves and then killed himselve all by the power of the mind.

“I administered the first injection of the doubly potent, fresh preparation, consisting of fresh water and nothing more. […] Recovery from his second near-terminal state was even more dramatic than the first. Tumor masses melted, chest fluid vanished, he became ambulatory, and even went back to flying again. At this time he was certainly the picture of health. The water injections were continued, since they worked such wonders. He then remained symptom-free for over two months. At this time the final AMA announcement appeared in the press, “nationwide tests show Krebiozen to be a worthless drug in treatment of cancer.”

Within a few days of this report Mr. Wright was readmitted to the hospital in extremis. His faith was now gone, his last hope vanished, and he succumbed in less than two days.” Source: http://25u5243lh1hm2x5eq12ubot6-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/… page 533.

This is the power of your mind: it can bring you back from the dead or it can kill you. The trick is to think in the present. Live NOW.
