THE EFFECTS OF TOXIC EMOTIONS ON OUR HEALTH – PART 2 BY LINDA M. MCCARTHY PH.D
This article is a continuation of The Effects of Toxic Emotions on Our Health
The deliberation surrounding the emotional effects on physical health will continue to be debated until definitive evidence is produced and the teachings of the ‘Central Dogma’ are no longer. The medical community can not dispute the placebo effect, as it has been implemented as an alternative for many years when other means failed to produce results. Interesting, the doctors who prescribed placebos to their patients did so by defending their justification that the placebo would present the patient with a positive outcome, not because they believed the treatment would have a psychological effect on the patient’s particular condition. I fail to see the difference.
