The 'placebo effect' can alleviate medical and psychological conditions... can it help you?

Right from the start we want to be clear – we make no promises or claims – it is for you to make your own mind up! Can and will placebos work for you? Please take time to look at the videos and the study summaries that have been brought together on this website before making your judgement. Use the links to the left to find out more about how placebos are viewed by the scientific establishment, how they are used by medical practitioners and how effective they are.

This website will help you begin to understand how to un-lock the potential of the 'placebo effect'1 and if it helps, you can purchase inert placebo medication for use as you see fit. The placebo pills are available in various shapes and sizes and are made from one of three types of inert ingredients. The tablets, capsules and pillules contain no active ingredients – the only difference being the perceived benefit experienced by recipients taking the placebo.

We make no medical claims at all, only the postulation that the 'placebo effect' is widely recognised to be present and to "work for some people some of the time".

We want to hear from you – tell us how effective your placebo experience has been, positive or negative. Please send us links to any medical trials, studies or placebo experiences that might usefully be included on this website.
