Harness the Placebo Effect and Squash the Nocebo Effect! - For your own health, and that of others.

Recently, I posted the first part of How to Enhance the Placebo Effect and Decrease the Nocebo Effect.  

This post is a continuation - Part 2.  Part 3 coming soon!

This is a "work-in-progress" Study Guide for myself - and maybe for you, if interested.  Comment if you want.  I'm gathering information, opinions for now.  More writings/inventions on this to come!  Stay tuned, if interested.


Here are the search strings I used, so far:

(harness OR elucidate OR enhance OR increase OR intensify OR heighten OR magnify OR amplify OR strengthen OR build-up OR supplement OR augment OR boost OR improve OR enrich) placebo

(decrease OR lessen OR reduce OR minimize OR moderate) (doctor OR nurse OR physician OR practitioner OR clinic OR hospital) nocebo

((harness OR elucidate OR enhance OR increase OR intensify OR heighten OR magnify OR amplify OR strengthen OR build-up OR supplement OR augment OR boost OR improve OR enrich)-placebo)  ((decrease OR lessen OR reduce OR minimize OR moderate)-nocebo (doctor OR nurse OR physician OR practitioner OR clinic OR hospital))

placebo nocebo

((decrease OR lessen OR reduce OR minimize OR moderate) (doctor OR nurse OR physician OR practitioner OR clinic OR hospital)-placebo) OR (placebo-(run-in OR lead-in)) OR (placebo-responder))
