In studying the body, I am constantly fascinated by our abilities. We are truly ingenious and incredible organisms! Probably a more accurate way to describe the human body would be to call it an ecosystem . . . but that’s another post.

I have been constantly curious to learn more and more about the placebo effect and the many complex ways our body rights itself and finds equilibrium.

I found this fascinating TED talk by Dr. Lissa Rankin about scientific proof on self healing. Enjoy!

For more in depth fascination and full on geeking out on the placebo effect, check out this wonderful documentary produced by the CBC: Brain Magic: The Power of Placebo
