About Lissa Rankin, MD:
New age gurus suggest that we can heal ourselves by simply changing our minds, but is this concept grounded in cold, hard science? Lissa Rankin, MD explores the scientific literature, reviewing case studies of spontaneous remission, as well as placebo and nocebo effect data, to prove that our thoughts powerfully affect our physiology when we believe we can get well.

  1. I hope people see that science has proven that what Jesus says in the Bible is true. U heard it right here. There are so many more proofs idk what it's gonna take for people to see that

  2. thank you. All this time I hate medicine and doctors. They have never heal anything in my life. I got hp bacteria , cavity, cramps, etc and I used to go through a lot of medicine and guess what, they was still there. Nothing changed exept the rise of acne and ton of side-effect. But whenever I stop taking medicine, stop carrying about the diseas, I healed. Who have hp bacteria nside their stomach will know how hard it's, going through a 3 months to a year treatment. After a year trying many medicine, I stopped. 2 years later, I don't even realise until i read some articles, I'm no longer getting hurt at night. who care if I still have those, as long as I don't feel hurt and I feel healthy, whatever. I won't let those things lie to me again. And dentists, stay away from me. I'll update you guys if my cavities is gone

  3. Nice way to get a standing O…..j/k! Nice speech and I am a big advocate for self healing and the power of the placebo effect and in general just the sheer power of the human mind BUT I felt even though it was coming from an M.D it was still a delivered a little too "out there" and going by the reactions of some of the audience I wasn''t the only one.

  5. Yes great. However…. not that easy to suddenly not be lonely or do you just hang out with anyone just so you are not on your own! What if your life is in an area where there are not hundreds of people to choose from. Wow what a wonderful world it would be if everyone was happy. It's not going to happen which of course is a shame. Do you think it could just be the DNA we are made up of. Some were born to be happy and have a great life and others not so. Surely that's part of life or can we change our own DNA. Mmmmm.

  6. I am more than pleased to appreciate Your Talk,…Mind is really a main factor of all things in life, whether problems or pleasures, they enters from the Highway of Mind only…which I have ever noticed in people. & I also helped them for their problems.

  7. Relax! – Science cannot make us healthy or Immortal, but I can – Achieving Human Biological Immortality Now is not a problem at all – I can make everybody Immortal in less than a month – We humans can stop aging and ailing (by wiping out all diseases) and live forever (like our Creators from the planet of Nibiru – The Anunnaki) – I got the key to our Biological Immortality – By staying absolutely healthy all the time – By doing my discovery (just an exercise for a minute a day) – My WVCD – The Weapon of Virus and Cancer Destruction, that cures and prevents any diseases, known on Earth for millions of years, even radiation disease (concerning space flights) – I will describe my WVCD to everyone, who sends me a check for one million bucks – Everybody will stay absolutely healthy all the time, living their Endless Lives, for Infinite Health = Immortality.

  8. Is the HB (Human Being) Naturally Selfish -especially those with High Awareness of the incredibly high capacity of the Brain/Heart to take care of his health and what not ?? Or there is the "GOOD & BAD" Mankind Warfare at Work ? The solutios of Human problems will surely not come from Aliens !!

  9. Our body can heal itself. I am doing it for around 14 year. It was an accident while I had eye flu in 2012. I was preparing for my high school exam and I was worried. I was constantly looking at my eye using mirror and miracle happened. after constantly looking for about 1 hour the eye flue was gone. I still practice it and I can cure small disease like itching, cough, cold and many more. I have not taken any medicine for these small disease for about 8 year.

  10. This is why witchcraft can be effective. Because the purpose of witchcraft is to manipulate the placebo effect in your favor (the rest is hoshwash). Pretty cool, huh?
