Is there scientific proof we can heal ourselves? Lissa Rankin, MD at TEDx

Lissa Rankin discusses the spiritual and scientific implications that intention and our thoughts can have. She explains that the placebo effect is concrete evidence that the body has its own innate self repair system.

A study was conducted with 3500 participants who had all been diagnosed with an incurable disease and through the placebo effect, everyone’s illness had all disappeared without treatment. Lissa Rankin talks about one case where a man was given drugs that he truly believed would cure his cancer. Within days his tumors shrunk to half its size. After a report was released stating the drug didn’t actually work, Mr. Wright’s cancer came back. His doctor told him that he had a higher quality version of the drug, and injected Mr. Wright with nothing more than water. Again, his tumors went away because he believed they would.

Lissa Rankin explains the countless occurrences with measurable proof, where people have cured themselves.
