Émile Coué, a French pharmacist discovered and utilised what became to be known as the placebo effect. He confidently praised the effectiveness of his remedies as he handed them out to his patients. There was a mysterious power in his suggestions and the remedies almost always worked magnificently. What Coué had stumbled upon was the body's ability to heal itself given a strong enough suggestion.
Today the placebo effect is recognised as being so powerful by pharmaceutical companies, that all testing has to make allowance for it. This protocol is known as double blind testing and basically means that the test subjects do not know what they are being given and nor do the people conducting the test know what they are giving out. It is quite common in double blind testing that both the drug being tested and the placebo cause an improvement in the condition being treated.
The patients in the placebo group, not knowing what they were being given, but believing in the possibility that they were receiving a potent new medicine found improvement anyway. Seeing improvements in health with just the suggestion of a possible benefit is powerful enough in itself but what if we really decide to harness this placebo effect to its fullest?
The key to good health is belief.
By creating the belief that we can heal, that our bodies are capable of healing, we can make a new reality for ourselves. The fastest and easiest way to do this is by communicating directly with the subconscious mind.
In PSYCH-K we assess if we have any limiting beliefs about our health, for example “My body doesn’t know how to heal, I’ve been sick forever.” Then by using PSYCH-K processes we can reprogram our belief system to a positive, enhancing statement such as “My body heals easily and naturally.” When we believe, in both our subconscious and conscious minds that we are capable of healing, a switch is turned on and we manifest healing and heath as our reality.
Peace, Love and Healing
