  • The power of the placebo

    Numerous studies show that in mild to moderate depression, placebos have the same effect as antidepressants. Taking placebos results in increased natural resistance and improved disease management in depression. Taking the tablets led to the activation of the body’s own opioid system, which is considered a natural painkiller. Regions in which the placebo-induced release of opioids could be detected included the medial thalamus, the nucleus accumbens, the amygdala, and the subgenual anterior cingulate cortex. These areas form a neural network that influences the emotions, stress management and pathophysiology of major depression.
