Placebo
English Version

Es un tratamiento falsificado e inocuo usado en estudios científicos para probar la eficacia de otra substancia. El placebo está diseñado para que se parezca tanto como sea posible a la substancia real que está siendo examinada. Por medio del poder de la sugestión, los tratamientos con placebo pueden producir resultados dramáticos y de larga duración en la mayoría de las personas a quienes se los aplican.
