We all know what the placebo effect is – give a group of patients a sugar pill instead of a medication with active ingredients, and some of them will show an improvement in their symptoms. Drug researchers treat the placebo effect as an annoying artifact that must be eliminated by using double-blind studies. Other health care advocates see it as remarkable evidence of human capacity for self-healing, and a topic that deserves extensive study. But what relevance does it have for marketers? New research shows that the placebo effect is related to the brain’s reward system, and it’s not a big leap to say that ...
When taken by mouth every day, these pills inhibit female fertility. They were first approved for contraceptive use in the United States in 1960, and are a very popular form of birth control . They are currently used by more than 100 million women worldwide and by almost 12 million women in the United States. 1 Usage varies widely by country, age, education, and marital status: one quarter of women aged 16–49 in Great Britain currently use the pill (combined pill or progestogen only pill or "minipill"), 2 compared to only 1% of women in Japan . 3 Cite error: There are tags on this page, but the references will ...

What is the meaning of "Attenuation" & "Potency" in Homeopathic ...
Attenuation is the process of diluting the starting ingredient to the point that it is nothing but water. Potency is how diluted it is. X means diluted to one tenth strength 10X means diluted to one tenth strength TEN TIMES, or 1 part ingredient, ten billion parts water. C means diluted to one one hundredth strength A "potency" of 30C means 1 part ingredient, 1 followed by 60 zeros parts water. In other words, most homeopathic preparations have not one single molecule of the original ingredient left in the water – they’re just water. It’s not complicated at all. I’m sorry the prior poster couldn’t ... market research, surveys and trends


Why Expensive Wine Tastes Better | Neuromarketing
for example). Now, researchers at Stanford and Caltech have demonstrated that people’s brains experience more pleasure when they think they are drinking a $45 wine instead of a $5 bottle – even when it’s the same stuff. The important aspect of these findings is that people aren’t rationalizing on a survey, i.e., reporting that a wine tastes better because they know it’s a lot more expensive. Rather, they are actually experiencing a tastier wine . “What we document is that price is not just about inferences of quality, but it can actually affect real quality,” said Baba Shiv, a ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Placebos Are Getting More Effective. Drugmakers Are Desperate to ...
In 2002, the pharmaceutical giant was falling behind its rivals in sales. Even worse, patents on five blockbuster drugs were about to expire, which would allow cheaper generics to flood the market. The company hadn't introduced a truly new product in three years, and its stock price was plummeting. In interviews with the press, Edward Scolnick, Merck's research director, laid out his battle plan to restore the firm to preeminence. Key to his strategy was expanding the company's reach into the antidepressant market, where Merck had lagged while competitors like Pfizer and GlaxoSmithKline created some of the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

What is a homeopathic doctor and what is a conventional doctor ...
"Peer reviewed" typically means your work has been published in a scientific journal that has a peer review policy, meaning that a group of doctors or scientists must review and critique your work before it can be published. Some journals even send investigative teams to examine extraordinary claims, like "Nature" did with Jacques Benveniste (see link below). Homeopathy has become a marketing term, and the companies that use it make millions of dollars selling mostly placebos and fakery to people who really want to believe. They WANT you to think "oh, I've heard about homeopathy for years, so it must work." What is ...
What do you think about unconventional healers and/or the placebo ...
the ONLY thing that helped the pain was Reiki. My boss made me try it and even paid for it so I went along with it just to humor her. I never believed it would work and so never imagined that it would. The pain would come back every morning and I kept having to get re-Reikied each day for about a week until it finally healed. I realize there could be some placebo effect there but the fact remained-it worked. Personally, I think that unconventional healing is just that, unconventional, and that there is very good reason why some of it has been practiced for so long. I would never abandon traditional medicine for it, though. I ...
