Placebo Medicine- Comments page

My name is MORGAN LEVY, MD and this is a blog-site about integrating alternative and mainstream medicine through the new neuroscience of the placebo effect.¬†There is intense disagreement between those who prefer traditional medicine and those that think alternative approaches can cure everything. Let’s discuss how non-pharmacologic approaches such as acupuncture, homeopathic remedies, psychotherapy, hypnosis, yoga, meditation and the doctor-patient relationship can alter brain chemicals to produce compensatory responses that can improve pain, nausea and psychiatric symptoms. I think primary care physicians could use this knowledge to incorporate some alternative therapies¬†into their clinical practice. What do you think?
