Our minds are more powerful than most of us realise.

The placebo effect accounts for as much as one third of symptom relief in sick people, according to the American Cancer Society.

When we believe we will get better, we have the potential to heal, but also to harm ourselves.

The flip side of the placebo effect is the nocebo effect. The nocebo effect is when we experience negative symptoms from a dummy treatment (placebo) because we expect harmful side effects.

The nocebo effect can see us manifest side effects of a 'treatment', which can be as broad as vomiting, pain, headaches and even, it is argued, death.
