I'm just wondering how the placebo effect works on people. If a patient is given fake drugs , how does that make him better? So what if they feel more "assured", how would that help the body immunity (t cells, phagocytes, etc) fight the infection better? How does phycological emotions affect the physical aspects of our immunity? Also I've read an interesting article online showing us that placebo effect works even when you know you are given fake drugs? This really complicates my understanding. How would such a approach even work? http://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/placebo-can-work-even-know-placebo-201607079926
