This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is frequently conceptualized as ‘nothing but’ placebo. I will argue, and provide the evidence in this chapter, that, apart from potential specific effects, CAM is a clever way of inducing generic self-healing effects. Jerome D Frank's model serves to conceptualize this. CAM practitioners normally establish good relationships and take time to listen to their patients. They have very elaborate rituals to enact those effects. They demonstrate their prowess and they provide alternative explanatory models that make sense, at least to those patients that consult with them. Most important of all, perhaps, is the fact that nearly all CAM modalities require patients to become active, thus serving as a catalyst to mobilize resources and stimulate the experience of self-efficacy. The latter is debatedly one of the most important nonspecific effects of therapy. Hence, it is misleading to conceptualize CAM effects as nonspecific effects. Rather, it seems to be a way of activating a self-healing response that is very specific in itself, and indeed, more specific than purportedly specific pharmacologic effects.

Summary : In this chapter we discuss the various aspects of the clinical applications of placebo effects. In clinical studies, a placebo intervention is often nearly as potent as the effects of the verum that is applied, and placebo effects can have enduring positive consequences. Most research has focused on healthy humans ...

Summary : In this paper I argue against continued use of the terms ‘placebo effect’ and ‘placebo response’. I cite a broad range of evidence to indicate that such events are not caused by ‘placebos’ but by their meanings, what they represent to patients, clinicians, families, and communities....

Summary : Considerable progress has been made in our understanding of the neurochemistry of placebo effects and there is now compelling experimental evidence that different neuronal networks are responsible for different types of expectation-induced placebo effects. These include both opioid and nonopioid systems such as endocannabinoids and cholecystokinin (CCK). In general, what ...

Summary : There is good evidence that placebo and nocebo responses reflect more than a psychologic reappraisal of pain perception. In fact, pain perception is the endpoint of several endogenous pain inhibitory and facilitatory mechanisms that trigger descending pain modulation mechanisms to the spinal cord. Measuring the ability of placebo and nocebo ...

Summary : Studies of placebo analgesia necessarily involve the induction and reporting of pain. The pain report is the basic dependent variable in many studies of placebo analgesia, and reported pain should ideally reflect the pain experience. However, the pain report is subject to a number of different influences that threaten the ...

With the advance of surgical technologies, the use of interventional and other invasive methods to treat pain has become prominent and growing in use.

Summary : The magnitude of placebo analgesia effects has been shown to vary across meta-analyses. The conceptualization of placebo effects, and the way in which they are induced, influence the magnitude of placebo analgesia effects. This has been indicated by meta-analyses and further confirmed by experimental studies. In general, small placebo analgesia ...
