Dr. Richard Kradin - The Placebo Response and the Power of Unconscious Healing
October 30, 2008
Hosted by Dr. Pat Baccili
According to medical researcher, physician, and author Richard Kradin, MD, our fears and doubts can do serious damage to our health. Approximately 1 in 4 patients receiving a placebo, or harmless sugar pill, will report side effects, from pains and fatigue to nausea. Called the "nocebo effect," this odd phenomenon has resulted in patients being pulled from clinical trials and more than $76.6 billion in bogus hospital costs. Dr. Kradin is trained in internal medicine, pathology, immunology, and psychoanalysis, and is one of the country's foremost experts in mind-body medicine. He is author of a new book, The Placebo Response and the Power of Unconscious Healing.
