The Placebo Effect – Mind Over Matter

There’s a phrase we use to describe the determination it takes to get through an illness or other challenge: ‘it’s a question of mind over matter.’ That’s more than just a saying. Widespread medical evidence has demonstrated the power of the mind to affect our physical state. 

Host, Jonathan Fialkow, M.D., explores the phenomena of the placebo and nocebo effects with Baptist Health clinical pharmacist Frank Zamora, Pharm. D.
