It is interesting. And one more example of how the studies we trust are flawed. I.e in phase I, desperate people know they are being given a drug and hope it will work. in phase II, they dont know if they are getting the real treatment or not. that they do placebo surgeries is deeply disturbing. Also, The brain is a powerful thing and can make things happen throughout the body, but remember that in this article they are talking about a brain condition.

As for acne, if I experienced the placebo affect, then all those drugs all those derms gave me would have helped. Also, I think there are too many factors that lead to acne. Edited by alternativista
