The placebo effect

There are a few things that I’ll go over before we get into Melissa’s journey again and how I have come down this road of learning to then finally being able to share this with others. You could say it’s the placebo effect to pacify a nation and accept pharmaceutical solutions.  It has been you could say, a very long road. Firstly, it was not an all at one-time endeavor, as life is a continuous experience in learning different precepts to guide us along this road, at different points in time. Usually, they arrive, when we are most perceptive to them. I have said it before and I will repeat it again. We are not all made of the from the same cloth. Out ward-lee yes, because we have a body of flesh and bone and skin to cover us, and that is the physical self.

Have you ever taken part of the social game with ten people in a room and the first, thinks up a phrase and passes it on to the next person closest to you in a secreted manner. Then that phrase  gets passed down and the last person is to say that phrase out loud, for everyone to hear. That phrase will at most times come out totally different.  It is fun to do and we got a lot of laughs out of it.  Well, that is the way of people’s perception.  Every one of us perceives differently.  Some will catch on very quickly, and others will take their time for a realistic interpretation to be clear to them.

In a manner, that is an aspect our spiritual self.  We are not made to do and understand in this life the same as another in a manner of interpretation, according to our capacity.  Like I could never be a scientist or a doctor or for that matter, an Albert  Einstein. What works for you, might not work for another. All is a learning curve and how we perceive things. For example my desire to help others. Some of you will not stay with me because of their own perception of things. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t a fair amount of people out there, that will keep coming back. “At least that is my Hope. ” 🙂

First and foremost, there is a great need to help people become aware of their own health issues and take steps in finding where their balance is. You might say, “how do I do that… I am not a doctor?” No your not, but you know what and how you are feeling. You go to the Doctor to find out what the problem is and you have 15 minutes to do that because your doctor is too busy. He gives you a prescription and you go home and take that prescription, it didn’t work and you go back and the doctor prescribes another. It’s just a flu bug that’s going around he might say,  give the antibiotics time to work.

I have talked to many people and they are saying the same things. But they keep going back hoping that the doctor has been able to find what is ailing them. Then he finally sends you out to get lab tests. You can hardly get to the Lab and your so anxious by that time the next week rolls around, to see the lab results. Oh boy! There is no nothing wrong with you, the lab results show that everything is normal and maybe just a bit out of balance. So he prescribes something else; this is called the hit and miss diagnosis technique. Sometimes the Doctor seeing that you are coming back so much, will prescribe a placebo, nominally called ‘the placebo effect’ to send you home again, and say. “If you’re not feeling any better come back and see me.”

The placebo effect refers to the phenomenon in which some people experience some benefit after the administration of a placebo. A placebo is a substance with no known medical effects, such as sterile water, saline solution, or a sugar pill.

Placebo effect: Also called the placebo response. A remarkable phenomenon in which a placebo — a fake treatment, an inactive substance like sugar, distilled water, or saline solution — can sometimes improve a patient’s condition simply because the person has the expectation that it will be helpful.

This is a very controversial technique used by the Medical world. Is this wrong? “I don’t know”! But what I do know is that it is getting the Western Medicine in a lot of trouble and people are looking for other alternatives. Is this good? “I don’t know that either!” What I do know is that each and every one of us has a wonderful machine called the Bodies own Healing Power. All I can do is help point you in the right direction and get you in contact with your own balance.

“Ask and you shell receive, knock and the doors shell open up to you.” All things are possible, there’s always a better way to obtain your desires and understanding.

This is the case what happened to my eldest Brother, back and forth he went to the doctors’ office for indigestion and finally with persistence he got the doctor to make other tests. When they finally made the diagnoses he was already too far along to get the help he needed. And died a year later of cancer of the stomach. It a very sad thing to see a 6ft.4. 250 PD young man with three children a man that loved food and loved his family dwindle away to nothing and not die of cancer, rather of starvation. Because he couldn’t hold anything in his stomach.

Another Brother a year younger than me, persisted and kept going back to different Doctors because he knew that there was something very wrong. Getting all these prescription drugs, for something that he didn’t have. The last time he was in emergency, they sent him home and not a block from the Hospital he collapsed people just walked by him he couldn’t get up he had to use a telephone pole to drag himself to his feet. He knew his body was failing, and not getting the help from the doctors.

He was able to get himself to the bus station and go 7 hours on the bus to my sisters’ house, he rang the doorbell and could see that there was someone home but they didn’t open the door. Found a public phone and my sister answered he said, “Jan it’s me at the door!” When she opened the door she could not believe her eyes, this was not her brother. His eyes were literally popping out of his head. She got him into the doctor’s office and took an older picture of him along.

“What you see here is not my brother,” she said and showed the doctor his picture, and said. “This is my brother!” Oh my God said the doctor, this is an overactive thyroid disorder and he was immediately sent to emergency. His readings for his thyroid were over the top, they had never seen anybody with such an extreme readings, and live to talk about it. Nor could they believe that he made a 7 hour trip on a bus, with this condition and live through it. It took 9 years with treatments for him to recuperate were he could go back to work again.  There are other cases in my family, that are nothing less than miraculous. But I use these two because they are the closest to home.

These are not isolated cases… there are cases after cases I hear about all the time. You open up the conversation and you will hear these tragic stories. There are a lot of people taking action for themselves but the great majority do not, they accept the doctor’s prescriptions time and time again. That is slowly changing. The biggest example I have is on the wonders and cures that are know out there. The saddest thing is that they have been around since time began. So if you have a few more minute  listen to the video on The   Diabetic loophole it quite the eye opener

  1. Your post is very informative and the underlying message I get from it is how important it is for each of us to become our own advocates for our health. You’re right! We know our bodies better than anyone and we know when something is wrong. Understanding that “there’s always a better way” is so important.

    I’m so sorry for the loss of your brother. Losing a loved one is tough, but you obviously found a silver lining as this motivated you to research and help others “find a better way!”

    Thank you for your inspiring message as well as the “wake up call” to do better with our health.

    Thank you for sharing!

    1. Hi, Linda so nice that you visited me here.

      Yes, you are right about losing loved ones, but I also have the understanding that everything happens for a reason even though it was hard for his small family. I was able to understand through my own tribulations how all the healing information that I had learned over time brought me to this crossroad where I have placed in a position to help others.

      We have a very loving Heavenly Father and he has guided me to understanding the human condition. All that I write here has a very special reason. Many of my posts that are related to what is happening to our environment. The air we breathe, the water we drink, the earth that produces our food has been compromised.

      Through my own tribulations first with my youngest daughter that was born with a learning disability from being left in the birth canal to long then finally brought into the world through cesarian birth causing lack of oxygen to the brain,disabling and labeling her as a slow learner, then at the age of 12 has open heart surgery, then abused at the age of 23 and became a mother of a beautiful healthy baby boy. With his birth also causing her Type 2 Diabetes.

      I became a “Mother” again the first four years of his life was the happiest times of “my” life. Until through a freak accident with severe trauma to the head two days before his fourth birthday.

      This threw me in a period of learning because not only was he disabled and labeled as a slow learner. He started to put on the pounds by the fifth year of school he was up to just about 300lb not because he was a big eater just everything he consumed went to fat. I couldn’t get the Dr’s to understand that he was not overeating they just wouldn’t believe me.

      So I had to take the bull by the horns and find the reason. My research has brought me to writing all that I learned and the most amazing discovery that all my life I had been receiving information about healing. I just didn’t know it, until I was able to see the full picture. Though the next four years working with him and brought him from 300lb down to 170.

      Today he is a productive 15-year-old boy that is active in sports his grade have improved academically. This is all documented in these posts, how we did it.

      This is how always a better way was created. Not only was I dealing with obesity and disabilities but also type 2 diabetes. This is where I found my blessing, although I have gone through a lot, it has also brought me a greater understanding of the human condition.

      My need to share my finding with whoever will listen, hence Always A Better Way because there are better ways. The great need for us to return to Mother Nature and a caring loving Heavenly Father that created this beautiful planet that we live in that was created for our benefit.

      always a better way

  2. Your article is so fulfilling to read because one can identify with some cases of the placebo effects. While reading, I could only say, yes, yes, true.

    So sorry for the loss of your brother and thank God your other brother was miraculously saved.

    There is a better way, and as we seek, I know we will find, according to the word of God.

    Keep up the good work

    God bless you.

    1. Hello, Jasmin and thank you for visiting me here on my website. My work here has to do with finding answers and helping others find the answers that they seek, through my own trials and tribulations and in doing so sharing my findings in hopes of helping others.

      Lossing my elder brother and with the Grace of God, my other brother was saved. But that is only the tip of the iceberg. These trails and tribulations have only placed me on a path that has taken a very long time in understanding.

      My true work here is my grandson and my daughter with obesity, Trauma to the head and type 2 diabetes. In looking for the answers I discovered many disheartening things along the way like the Placebo effect.

      I have a story to tell and I feel that through telling my story I will be able to help others make changes in their lives. It is imperative that we do so it is very evident the medical world have lost there way and the only way we can get back on track is by helping ourselves to make these changes and just maybe the Medical world will follow suit.

      We live in a very toxic world and most of our health problems, if not all, are from the toxins
      that we take into our bodies every single day, from the food and water we drink to the air we breathe and pharmaceuticals that are being administered to us through our doctors.

      If I can help others and lead the way this would be a great satisfaction. I am humbled by your participation in reading and commenting on this work.

      Always a better way
      sending blessings your way
