The connection between the mind and the body has been known by ancient cultures for thousands of years. Gurus meditate, the Chinese do Qi Gong, but the western cultures have only recently begun to embrace the concept. But knowingly or unknowingly we utilize it every day. Pharmaceutical companies test the effectiveness of new drugs by using a placebo , and guess what? A percentage of the study participants receive the same benefits that those receiving the actual drug do. The term psychosomatic has been used for decades in the psychology field to describe how someone is cured of a physical ailment after coming to some emotional or mental breakthrough during therapy.
