The placebo effect’s role in traditional healing and Western medicine



The placebo effect influences all types of healing, from yoga to laying of hands to remedies in your doctor’s office.

While researching his book, “Suggestible You”, on the science of belief, science writer Erik Vance visited healers in the U.S., China and Mexico. He has been blessed, cursed and tortured in countless ways.

He joined ScienceScope to journey from Mexico to Maryland to show how these beliefs influence healing.

This work was done in cooperation with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
