Placebo effect: healing power coming from nowhere
Documentary film “Placebo: solve the mystery”
A documentary about unique, unexplained phenomena in medicine.
In a remote place in the south-west of Ireland gathered 5 of the most prominent scientists in the world. Their task is to study a number of amazing events that took place in different parts of the world.
In Los Angeles, a woman with a severe form of depression is mysteriously healed, with the help of not a real pill. Italian scientist with the help of high-tech equipment is trying to understand how a dead saint could heal a man from multiple sclerosis. And in Texas, a war veteran was relieved of excruciating pain in a disfigured knee through a simulated operation.
These intractable phenomena of the doctor are called the placebo effect. We are talking about the amazing ability to self-healing embedded in ourselves.
These five scientists are convinced that they have found the key to a new method of treating diseases, challenging all modern medicine.
