The Placebo Effect

This is Dr. Rob Bates again. The last several weeks we’ve talked about the different stresses on the body, the physical stresses, the chemical stresses, and the mental stresses, and when the body can’t adapt to such stresses, it will break down. The innate intelligence of your body can’t adapt to the environment and you start having these diseased states.

This week we’re going to talk about a very interesting subject: the placebo effect.

If you get a chance, take a look at the book “The Biology of Belief” by Bruce Lipton, Ph. D. He’s a medical scientist who has taught at med schools and does a lot of research in this area. Basically what one part of this book is talking about is the placebo effect.

Placebo effects occur when you have a study where you give a sugar pill to some people in the study without their knowledge while giving another set of people the drug they want tested and positive effects ensue. In other words, it’s just coming from their minds.

They did a study, in The New England Journal of Medicine, on arthritic knees. One group had actual knee surgery performed on them, while another group had debris flushed out of the joint that may have been causing inflammation to the knee, while the third had a mock surgery, a placebo surgery, where they made the incision and talked through an actual surgery but didn’t do anything to the knee. The three groups went through their normal rehabilitation, and what they found, interestingly enough, was that there was no change, no difference, in the outcome of all three of those groups; meaning, some of the people who actually had the placebo surgery were able to be active again. One man who had to use a cane before the study was able to go out and play basketball after the surgery!

The power of the mind!

Also, they did another study with the 6 main anti-depressants. They measured them up against the placebo, a sugar pill, and in all those cases, the placebo effect beat the anti-depressants!

Do you really need the anti-depressants or just the placebo effect?

What Dr. Bruce Lipton goes on to say is that our society is so ingrained with the notion that if you take this pill, it will help you.  There is billions of dollars worth of marketing right now from the pharmaceutical companies that will educate and ingrain into you, your kids, and your grandkids to take these drugs because it will heal you. In other words, we have a whole society that believes a drug will cure them.

He wraps up this section by saying that some of the pharmaceutical companies are trying to find out which people are more susceptible to the placebo effect, because they don’t want those people to affect their studies since it fouls up the possibility of their drugs to be pushed. So, they want to exclude the competition which is a placebo sugar pill.

Maybe what we need to do is spend all these billions of dollars researching why that placebo effect actually happens in the body, why the belief process actually happens. Then we can just pop out the miracle sugar pills instead.

D.A.R.E. 2011

Good morning this is Dr. Rob with your weekly health blog. This week is DARE week: Drug Awareness/Drug Prevention. It’s a great program, that allows the kids to become more aware and help prevent the unnecessary deaths from drugs. According to The Journal of American Medical Association, street drugs kill approximately 10,000 people per year.  10, 000 preventable deaths. It’s great to have this program.

Since it is Drug Week, I was reading another article in Newsweek (April 27th, 1998) that stated that properly prescribed legal drugs from a Medical Doctor kill approximately 106,000 – 190,000 people per year. That’s huge! They calculated it as being the 4th leading cause of death in the United States.

So, drugs are a huge problem: we have a drug culture! We have to really look to see what’s happening at home and what we’re really teaching our kids, what we’re teaching ourselves, and what we truly believe. One way to look at it is to see when we you use drugs. Is it for a First Aid situation, when you should use them? Or is it in every day use when you get the first pain that comes up?

Investigate it, take a look at how many drugs you have in your cupboard, do you really need all of them? And what are you actually showing your kids?

If you have any questions about this, give me at Bates Chiropractic at 310-545-4188 or www.chiropractormanhattanbeach.com

Increase Your Life Expectancy and Decrease Diseases

This is Dr. Rob with this week’s health blog. There’s a very powerful concept we’re going to go over today. There are certain things you can do that can increase your life expectancy and decrease all diseases across the board, especially the major diseases like heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and stroke.
Studies done on lab rats all the way up to primates show that decreasing the calorie intake by up to 30% will increase your life expectancy and decrease diseases across the board.
What does that mean to us here? If you find the foods that are low in calorie but high in nutrition, not only are you going to lose weight, but you’re going to live longer, feel better, and have less disease!
It’s a powerful concept that we are going to be discussing in more detail at our Nutrition Workshop that we will have in early June.
If you have any questions regarding this topic don’t hesitate in contacting us at Bates Chiropractic at (310) 545-4188 or via our website: www.chiropractormanhattanbeach.com
Don’t forget to stay regular with your adjustments, because you need a great nerve supply in order to build a new body.

Wipeout! Stress is the Main Cause of Subluxations!

Hi this is Dr. Rob with your weekly health blog. This week we’re going to talk about causes of subluxations. There are 3 main causes which in reality are just one cause: stress. The inability of your body to adapt to stress causes subluxations. It could be a physical stress, a mental type stress, even a chemical stress.

Let’s discuss one of the causes, Physical Stress, the most obvious one. If you want to see a way one can subluxate himself, tune into Wipeout on ABC on Thursday Dec 8th at 8 p.m. You’ll be able to see my daughter as one of the contestants on Wipeout subluxating herself!
Take a look at the way people can subluxate themselves then we can discuss the biomechanics of it later!

This is a friendly reminder to always get your kids checked out, ’cause it seems like with kids every day is a wipeout!
