Publisher's Summary

What’s often overlooked is that the simple conversation between doctor and patient can be as potent an analgesic as many treatments we prescribe.

"The Conversation Placebo" is from the January 20, 2017 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Danielle Ofri and narrated by Keith Sellon-Wright.

Placebos are good for health

Short but significant. I think positive and also believe that my body is healing itself and perhaps that is why the symptoms from my autoimmune disease have improved along with the medicine. If a doctor is not paying attention to me when I'm with them their negativity effects me right then and there and I have to seek counseling from a friend or self council in order to think positive about recovery
