Magic Feather Effect: The Science of Alternative Medicine and the Surprising Power of Belief

by Melanie Warner Author

We all know someone who has had a seemingly miraculous cure from some form of alternative medicine - whether you believe in it or not, the tales are far too common to be complete fabrications, yet still too anecdotal to be truly taken seriously. In this book, you will be taken through the world of alternative medicine and the scientific underpinning for the results of these practices. In a thorough study combining tales of recovery and scientific research into the placebo effect, you will learn about the surprising system of self-healing that resides in all of us.
