Magical Monday - Medicine

I had started this on Monday, then my daughter needed the computer. I had lots of fascinating things to say--things that would have kept you on the edge of your seat, gasping in amazement--however, I lost my train of thought once I had to sign off. Nevertheless, here's the gist of it...

Fake surgery works as well as real surgery. (See the book "The Biology of Belief" by Bruce Lipton)

Placebos work as well as "real" medicine. (See just about any medical publication)

Fake acupuncture works the same as real acupuncture. See the following article:

Perhaps our thoughts are the most powerful medicine we can use.


  1. Kate, I read this once and loved it. It says exactly how I see life.

    Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

    I truly believe what our mind creates, is... And this blog is great, and kept me on the edge of my seat, even if you did lose your train of thought! Great topic.

  2. Becky, that's a fascinating article on sham acupuncture. I believe the same thing about our thoughts. Now, if I could only "think" away my migraine ...

    Congratulations on making progress on your novella! Yay!!! Me too, on my book. *g*

  3. Thanks, LaDonna. Great quote. :)

    Aw, Edie. Sorry about the headache. The problem with trying to think those away is the thinking causes more pain. :(

    Thanks for the congrats on the novella progress - though these I'm making more progress with the weight loss and painting Halloween items for ebay. But I'll take that. :)

    I do want to get back to the story though - I'm almost halfway done, and November will be here before you know it!

  4. Hi Kate, I'm back to look at your progress, lol. The migraine went away that same day, which was short-lived for me. Very cool about your weight loss. I haven't lost anything. My sister called me last night, happy because she met her goal weight for TOPS. Now I have to lose weight! I can't let her be thinner than me, lol.

  5. You know, what I find fascinating are the cases of multiple personalities who have different illnesses; one personality has clinically diagnosed diabetes, but it goes away when another personality who doesn't have it takes over. Now, that's the power of the mind for ya.

  6. LOL, Edie - yeah, you gotta keep the sibling rivalry going. :) I'll post an update in a few minutes.

    Avery - Wow, that's amazing! Good to see you out and about again. :)

  7. Just passing through to check in on you and see how you are doing. Sounds like you are doing well - just too busy at the moment.
    How great - you are working on your novella!
    Take care and get some sleep - I have been a little sleep deprived myself lately.
    Peace, Lindy

  8. Hey, Lindy - good to see you. :)

    I'm looking forward to reading what you came up with for Stewarts writing assignment. :)


Say what you will...
