- A placebo effect, also known as a nonspecific effect, is a psychological or psychophysiological improvement achieved through the administration of an inert substance or through a simulated procedure. Positive thinking about the effectiveness of a treatment is not the only component of the placebo effect. The goal is to create a strong connection between the mind and the body in order for them to function effectively. There is empirical proof that the mind and body are reciprocally influenced by each other through the placebo effect. In this research paper, authors understand how the placebo is a factor of self-healing and the impact it has on the mind of the receiver. The studies revealed that how placebo is the pivot on which the whole treatment bases. In the second half of the research, a relationship between drug effect and placebo has also been discovered which helps to prove the increase in demand of placebos. It has been found that drug effect and placebos go hand in hand. While placebos mentally cure a person, drugs help physically. The results suggest that contextual factors such as expectations and altered perception can treat inflammatory diseases and Parkinson’s disease. This research aimed at analyzing the mechanism and impacts of placebo effect on human mind.
