Faith and the Placebo Effect: An Argument for Self-Healing by Lolette Kuby

Lolette Kuby authored Faith and the Placebo Effect after her own experience of a complete healing of breast cancer through faith. Writing with the power of first-hand experience, her conviction shines through in this coherent and sustained argument for self-healing through the mind alone. The placebo effect is perhaps the best-documented fact in the history of medicine, and placebos come in an infinite variety. For those who want to consciously trigger this effect, this book argues that an advanced understanding of the forces at work is a key factor. Faith in our divine endowment of health and healing is the central requirement, says the author; but the support provided by a contextual understanding makes the task far simpler. The problem is that the action of self-healing is subtle: it usually occurs spontaneously and unconsciously; its work is normally unacknowledged; and the healing effect is erroneously attributed to external causes, when the true source is within. In order for this truth to be fully grasped and directly applied for healing, the author discovered that a space must be cleared through the obfuscations of conventional medicine and the culture of illness. It is not enough to appeal with beautiful phrases to the power of faith; nor is it enough to critique the tyranny of materialistic medicine and to cite the scientific evidence for placebos. These threads of understanding must be marshalled all at once, if we are to break through the cultural conditioning that convinces us that something or someone external to us is the agent of our healing.
