This App Will Make You Feel Better, Using No Medicine At All

This App Will Make You Feel Better, Using No Medicine At All | Placebo Technique | Scoop.it

 

Daniel Jacobs also wants to use placebos for good. His new app, which he’s crowd-funding on Indiegogo, is an attempt to take the placebo out of the doctor’s office and into your home. He hopes it will make people feel better, and contribute further to placebo research.

 

You start by setting a goal: say, more joy or love in your life. Then, you choose someone to give you the placebo (maybe a friend or family member), what you want it to be (a pill, say), and where you want to take it (maybe a forest where you go running with a friend). You then "take" the placebo whenever you want to, following a pre-set ritual built into the app.

 

The point is to replicate what’s important about the placebo effect, which isn’t the pill itself, but the experience. "If we think about placebo as a transformational symbol, then people get to choose what placebo they want," says Jacobs. "It can be a pill, magic wand, holy book, communion wafer, or herbs. It just needs to be meaningful for them."

I believe that could really work. I like it.
William Hanna's curator insight, July 25, 2013 10:58 AM

I completely believe in a "mind over matter" approach.  After all your body is capable of producing every drug you could ever find in a drug store.  What's even better, your body can administer the exact dose for the exact time required.  I kid you not!  The trick is to truely believe without a shadow of any doubt.

this app sounds very cool, however it makes me worry how much more we really want to depend on technology. When I first started reading the article i thought it looked amazing, but then I realised that I am on my phine so ofte anyway; always checkingfacebook and keeping in touch with friends, even when i have friends sitting right next to me. My phone destracts me from the here and the now, even though connection is great sometimes it blocks out life that is passing by so fast. Now there is something more we should depend on our Phones for, things that we should get from actual human interaction- Justine Pearce
