A placebo is a false medicine or remedy that is designed to only have no medical value. Common placebos such as inert capsules, fake injections, sham dental procedures, and many other questionable practices are used in order to attract patients. However, a placebo can also be taken with the proper amount and type of medication. This article will focus on Minecraft Mod, a mod for the game known as “Minecraft”.
The main ingredient of Placebo pills is a chemical compound called “opioid peptides”. These compounds work like morphine by blocking pain intensity in the brain. Injected under the skin, Placebo pills can cause an almost instant reduction in pain intensity. It is important to remember that while researchers labeling Placebo drugs state that they are safe, not all oral pharmaceuticals are safe, so taking Placebo orally can and will have side effects.
For instance, researchers labeling St John’s Wort a “cure” for depression have found that it works in the same way as a placebo pill. While Placebo researchers claim that the absence of the real active ingredient, they have not found a significant effect on depression symptoms. In fact, when comparing Placebo fatigue to placebo fatigue, Placebo researchers have found no difference between the degrees of fatigue experienced by cancer survivors who took Placebo. Unfortunately, Placebo has nothing to offer cancer survivors with fatigue. Placebo does nothing to treat or cure cancer, it only masks the symptoms. While it may be effective at treating the symptoms of depression, Placebo does not treat the root cause of the illness; therefore, Placebo should be avoided at all cost when dealing with any illness.
Placebo has also been used to treat anxiety, headaches, migraines, and even child behavior problems. Research has shown that when Placebo is given to children who are suffering from anxiety, their symptoms improve. Placebo works by altering the brain’s chemistry, so that depressed patients begin to feel better and nausea and vomiting stop. Unfortunately, Placebo has shown very little to no effect on children suffering from either ADHD or depression. These studies also reveal that Placebo has little to no effect on brain activity, leaving many to believe that Placebo is ineffective and even harmful.
Unfortunately, Placebo has even been found in today’s world, in the form of pain killers, such as Tylenol and Motrin. In one study, Placebo was found to have a positive impact on patients suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome. These studies prove that Placebo cannot exist without classical conditioning, since when Placebo is given, classical conditioning is not able to overcome the placebo effect. This means that while Placebo can help some sufferers, it cannot help at all, making it an ineffective and potentially harmful treatment option. Further research has shown that although Placebo works on some patients, it has absolutely no effect whatsoever on chronic sufferers.
Because of these results, pharmaceutical companies have taken the stance that if a new medication is capable of curing a condition, then it may be worthwhile to produce the new medication using placebo instead of taking it through standard clinical trials and procedures. In fact, many pharmaceutical companies have made this move, seeing it as more cost-effective and efficient than using placebo in clinical trials. However, as these researchers continue to look for a cure, more problems with Placebo as a new treatment for depression and other disorders will arise. Until this day, Placebo remains a mystery to scientists everywhere.
