The Seattle hypnosis with Roger Moore post yesterday was about nocebo. Today, I’m writing about placebo. Yes, fake medicine can quiet a child’s cough. According to a new study, giving young children agave nectar or a placebo treatment of flavored, colored water both appear to help reduce cough symptoms at night more than not giving any treatment. At Seattle hypnosis children and adults learn the mindfulness hypnosis tools to harness the power of their own mind for health and wellness. Give me a call and discover how you too can use the power of your mind to be happy, healthy and whole.

Fake medicine can quiet a child’s cough
“Many pediatricians suggest doing nothing for cough and cold symptoms other than maintaining hydration and perhaps giving acetaminophen or ibuprofen,” said lead researcher Dr. Ian Paul, chief of the Division of Academic General Pediatrics at Penn State College of Medicine in Hershey, Pa.
“It is possible that giving a sweet liquid ‘placebo’ is preferred for families and children than doing nothing or, even worse, taking an unnecessary antibiotic,” he said, adding that this is a discussion families should have with their providers.
“We have known for a long time that placebos can have a substantial therapeutic benefit over a wide range of conditions,” said Dr. Douglas Opel, an assistant professor of pediatrics and of bioethics at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle. Opel is also the co-author of an accompanying editorial in the same issue of the journal.
