Sometimes you get your medication but in clinical studies they often give with -- go to some patients which really doesn't have much in it.
To see what the efficacy or how it works and -- a survey now that finds that most people think.
It's OK even if their doctor gives them one.
Hot got to signal really well look first blank.
First of all surveys or not.
Totally real science -- me that's just asking people would you say this is okay and it's not the same thing as what we do.
In the laboratory were the case controlled or even randomized prospective trials which we want to this limitations here.
But you know there's a previous study that showed that 60% doctors think it's okay to prescribe placebo and now we have fifty to 75% of patients saying.
It's okay what is a placebo placebo is when you're managing a patient's expectations.
Rather than the pharmacology the drug affect.
Or the effect on the body physiology in other words.
The antibiotic does something to -- You know that's a physiology that's a drug working if I give you something and it isn't that the drug itself -- I'm looking for that's a placebo.
I personally haven't ethical problem -- I don't like giving placebos.
First -- without disclosing it.
But I'll tell you what I do like and I -- to confuse people out there I like the placebo effect there's a difference in other words.
If I give you an antibiotic and you feel you're getting better Jamie.
Then I'm happy I gave it even if it's a placebo effect that -- you better -- -- better how to scientific reason for using so.
-- this is you rule out that the patient doesn't need out.
Specific drunk and you give them something that isn't really drug or you give me drug even though you know the drug isn't gonna help it's viral vs bacterial and -- give it to him anyway just to make them feel calmer about it that they.
I think that's exactly right so what happens is right now the patients go to the doctors sit in the waiting room read all -- magazine.
Pay their coal -- and they walk out -- -- prescriptions.
Because of -- trust that the patient has in the doctor and to believe that they having the doctor whether that medication is real or not in 30% of the time.
They feel better that 30% is a placebo effect I have a different take about this.
I happen to like what I see here have been -- survey coming from and I edge.
I think that we are all -- we're writing to a prescriptions we're -- too many medication is not knowing what we're treating.
And this does use -- the power of mind how patients can feel better.
You know -- just getting something that may be sure there.
This prescription may look like -- -- about its but he would could be totally -- and have the same kind of -- reports say that about acupuncture sometimes to me war or may not.
But -- general I think that this placebo effect in practice is the real deal.
Okay -- help people don't touch the magazines in a doctor's office without using anti bacterial now married advice do a whole segment we could swap there's always love the magazines I don't know good.
