Question: Is it true that if you are ill with some sort of disese and you think you are not that you will get better??

  1. Not really elevenlemons.
    What you’re referring to is a king of placebo effect. Placebo is a medically treatment for a disease or other medical condition intended to deceive the person who receives it (meaning that it has no action and could just be a sugar pill; but the simple act of taking it makes you feel better). The perceived or actual improvement in the medical condition is not as a result of any medication, it’s solely the result of the bodies actions, and this is called the placebo effect.
    If the substance/drug is viewed as helpful, the patient expects a change. So the belief that he/she will feel different leads a person to actually feel different.
    Motivation also has been shown to have a positive effect.

    Hope that helps ๐Ÿ˜€


  2. What I think you might be talking about is the placebo effect, and Yashar has done a great job of explaining it!
    But the power of positive thought certainly goes a long way!!
