Already overdosed on campaign rhetoric? Tired of political posturing?
As tired of the lengthening of political seasons as you may be, there are some who are actually sick and tired. The stress over political battles has impacted their health.
It’s good to be an involved citizen, but, nasty politics can cause extremes in thought and unpleasant physical symptoms. It seems the more negative a political campaign gets, the more illness is experienced.

The seven-night Oprah Winfrey television series, Belief, airing October 18 – 24, explores our “ongoing search to connect with something greater than ourselves.”
The second in the series, Belief: Love’s Story, explores loving unconditionally, love that unites, and loving your enemies.

They can’t ignore it. It’s there. Doctors, patients, and pharmaceutical companies can’t escape it. You can’t either. What is it?
The placebo effect.
The placebo effect is the health response patients experience when they believe they’re receiving a drug or surgery but are actually being given dummy drugs or simulated treatments.
Dr. Lissa Rankin writes, “The placebo effect is real, it works about 18-80% of the time, and it’s not just in your head – it actually dilates bronchi, heals ulcers, makes warts disappear, drops your blood pressure, and even makes bald men who think they’re getting Rogaine grow hair!”
Yet, there’s more.
