How YOU Can Heal Yourself With Your Mind
Could it be? The end of modern medicine?
Medical Mystery: The shocking case of Mr. Wright – a new drug called Krebiozen was getting sensational publicity as a possible “cure” for cancer. It was being tested by the American Medical Association (AMA) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
One of the researchers involved in this testing was a doctor named Bruno Klopfer. One of Dr. Klopfer’s patients, Mr. Wright, was suffering from cancer of the lymph nodes, and none of the standard treatments were working. His neck, armpits, chest, abdomen, and groin were filled with tumors the size of oranges, and his spleen and liver were so enlarged that two quarts of milky fluid had to be drained out of his body each day.
He was just about out of time…
When Wright discovered that Dr. Klopfer was involved in research on Krebiozen, he begged to be given Krebiozen treatments. At first his doctor refused because the drug was untested and only being tried on people with a life expectancy of at least three months.
Wright begged so hard, however, that Klopfer decided to give him one injection on Friday, even though the doctor secretly suspected Wright wouldn’t last the weekend.
Dr. Klopfer was in for a big surprise.
On the following Monday, Klopfer found Wright out of bed and walking around. Klopfer reported that his tumors had “melted like snowballs on a hot stove” and were half their original size. This was a far more rapid decrease in size than even the strongest X-ray treatments could have accomplished. Ten days after Wright’s first Krebiozen treatment, he left the hospital, and as far as his doctors could tell, with no signs of cancer.
When he entered the hospital, he had needed an oxygen mask to breathe, but when he left he was well enough to fly his own plane at 12,000 feet with no discomfort.
Wright remained well for about two months, but then articles began to appear asserting that Krebiozen actually had no effect on cancer of the lymph nodes. Wright, who was rigidly logical and scientific in his thinking, became very depressed, suffered a relapse, and was readmitted to the hospital.
This time his physician decided to try an experiment.Dr. Klopfer told Wright that Krebiozen was every bit as effective as it had seemed, but that some of the initial supplies of the drug had deteriorated during shipping. He explained, however, that he had a new highly-concentrated version of the drug and could treat Wright with this.
Of course, the physician did not have a new version of the drug and intended to inject Wright with nothing more than plain sterile water.Wright remained symptom-free for another two months, but then the American Medical Association announced that a nationwide study of Krebiozen had found the drug worthless in the treatment of cancer.
This time Wright’s faith was completely shattered. His cancer blossomed anew and he died two days later.
Wright’s story is tragic, but it has a powerful message: When we can tap the healing forces of belief, we can cause tumors to melt away overnight!
The patient’s mind alone caused his recovery – and then his demise.
This event proves that your mind is so powerful that it can literally bring wonderful or tragic changes in your health – within days.
What if I told you that your beliefs and expectations has a lot to do with whether or not you can heal?
This is called the ‘placebo effect’ and it’s very important that you understand it before you begin your Mind-Body healing program. The information below gives you scientific proof of the power of your Mind to heal your body. If you can gain an understanding of the placebo effect, then you have taken the first step on the road to healing.
The term ‘placebo’ refers to the use of a false or ‘dummy’ treatment for illness. A typical placebo could be a pill made of sugar or a liquid ‘medication’ which is little more than water.
Back in the 1950s, researchers began using placebos in clinical studies. These studies would compare the effects of a new medication with those of a pill that looked identical but contained no active ingredients.Now what really might blow your mind is that in many of these studies, researchers discovered that *the drug they were testing was in no way superior to the placebo.*
But – this doesn’t mean the placebo provided no results. Actually, the very opposite was true, with the placebo group showing positive results based on the expectations of what the drug itself was supposed to offer.
In other words, the placebo effect was dependent on a person’s belief and expectation.
Let’s look at a few studies that stunned Doctors …
False surgery still works. In the summer of 1994, a surgeon named J. Bruce Moseley had 10 patients scheduled for an operation intended to relieve the arthritis pain in their knees. All 10 were wheeled into the Houston Veterans Affairs Medical Center, draped, examined and anesthetized. All 10 were then dispatched to the recovery room and sent home from the hospital by the next morning equipped with crutches and a painkiller.
All 10 men believed they had just gone through a reliable medical surgery to cure them of their knee arthritis pain.
But this was not the case.
In fact, while two of the men did undergo the standard arthroscopic surgery for their condition – the scraping and rinsing of the knee joint – and three had the rinsing alone, a full five of them had no recognized surgical procedure at all. Their surgery was a placebo. Moseley would cut the placebo patients’ knees three times with a scalpel – to make it feel and look real, there had to be incisions and scars for the patient to believe he had undergone surgery – but that was it.
The placebo worked.
Six months after surgery, the 10 patients still didn’t know whether they had been faked out or not.
But all of them reported much less pain.
Moseley, stunned by these results, decided to perform a more statistically reliable trial. The results were the same: the placebo effect was therapeutically equal to the surgery.
In other words, the patients’ minds were what ultimately determined their healing success.
Medical Mystery: Extreme brain surgery placebo2001 was the year of the most shocking placebo effect results.
Stem-cell researcher Dr. Cynthia McRae of the University of Denver was testing a new treatment for Parkinson’s disease. Her study wanted to find out if transplants of embryonic brain cells could help people with Parkinson’s disease. All 39 patients had 4 holes drilled into their skulls while under local anesthesia only. In other words – they were aware that their skulls were being drilled into. But: only half of the patients actually received any cell transplants. The other half received no treatment at all.
Results were Jaw-dropping.
After the surgery, 30 of the original 39 patients agreed to take part in a quality-of-life study. As part of this study, all 30 were asked whether they thought they had received the actual transplant, or just a placebo. 12 months later, patients who thought they received brain-cell transplants did better, than those who really received the treatment.
Dr. McRae reported the following: “Those who thought they received the transplant reported better quality of life than those who thought they received the sham surgery, regardless of which surgery they actually received.”
Medical Mystery: A Placebo can even harm you. In another study, 19 out of 40 people developed the symptoms asthma after inhaling a saline solution they were told was an allergenic. In fact, 12 of them developed full-blown wheezing and bronchial spasms.
What’s more amazing still is that their dramatic symptoms disappeared completely just three minutes after receiving another saline solution placebo.
The researchers of this study concluded that it was the suggestion (the mind’s belief) which played the most important role in causing the asthmatic attacks.
Most people never learn how to tap into and control the powerful force of their minds for healing. In fact, when it comes to health and illness, some people have their minds working against them. Doctors call this psychosomatic illness – and it can be any illness that’s caused by someone’s negative beliefs about their health.
Do you know of someone like this? Or do you do this yourself?

Like the Placebo Effect, Mind-Body healing relies on your Mind’s Power to direct belief, expectation and visualization for specific, positive results.
“It’s not that the old meds are getting weaker, drug developers say. It’s as if the placebo effect is somehow getting stronger.”
There are now so many examples of the placebo effect’s power to heal equally as well as a drug, that pharmaceutical companies are getting worried. In fact, both new and well-knowns drugs are proving less effective against the placebo.
For example, between 2001 and 2006, there was a 20% increase in new products that had to be removed from further development following Phase II clinical trials, (when drugs are tested against a placebo). Further, this failure rate continued into Phase III trials, increasing by an additional 11 percent due primarily to the various drugs’ poor results against a placebo. In 2007 the US Food and Drug Administration was only able to approve 19 first-of-their-kind drugs. This is the smallest amount since 1983. 2008 wasn’t much better with only 24 new drugs approved.
And these results have nothing to do with drug companies’ new product development, because the industry invested record levels of funds into their research and development programs during these years.
Please note that mental healing should not be used as a replacement for a visit to your doctor. Always consult a doctor first for serious health conditions. Mental healing is a type of complementary medicine – as the name suggests it is to be used alongside but not as a replacement for modern medicine.Use the power of your mind to speed up your normal healing processes with the ReNu You Self-Help Wellness System.
