    Many of you may already have an understanding of this. Very interesting audio of this phenomenon.
    One good story talks about orthopedic surgery from a renowned sports MD.
    Later in the cast is a Harvard researcher regarding herbal/accupunture treatments as well as other aspects of "treating" clients.
    Thought provoking!!

    Nice link...reinforces the need to wait for the prospective, double blinded placebo controlled studies to see if new meds/treatments really work or not.

    Check out the nocebo effect too for more strangeness....
