No, I am not talking about Wolverine the X-Men. The movie is great but we are very far from healing ourselves the way Wolverine does.
There is however a widely accepted and clearly demonstrable condition in medical practice which gives insight into self-healing. The condition is called ‘placebo effect’. Placebo effect is a phenomenon where a ‘dummy pill’ behaves like genuine drug in our body. This is where ‘sugar pill’ and ‘water injection’ relieve pain and headache. This is not only seen in sophisticated medical studies but also in our daily mundane life. The results show up both in statistics as well as in simple observations.
Placebo effect ultimately gives raise to what medical people call ‘spontaneous resolution’ of illnesses. Scientific community now increasingly believe, based on multitudes of studies, that ‘spontaneous resolution’ of any diseases is indeed possible and real. These diseases are including terminal illnesses such as end-stage cancers and HIV. The lay people probably call this ‘miracle cure’.
