#8 Optimising Health and Happiness - Episode 4: Placebo / Nocebo / Mind Over Matter

I am delighted today to introduce you to the fourth in our series on Optimising Health and Happiness For Humans and Your Animals, with my special guests, Dr. Timo Tastutar and Lance Schuttler. 

In the first episode (#4) we discussed 'What is Health, and How can we Optimise it?' and in the second episode (#5) we discussed 'What is Happiness?' In the third episode (#6) of the series, we discussed the important subject of 'How do our Choices Affect our Health & Happiness?'

We have all heard of the placebo effect, but how many of us know about the nocebo effect and how it can have a huge impact on our health & happiness? When we really understand the influence that our subconscious mind has on our daily lives, only then can we really start to take back control of our health & happiness. Once again, I love the different perspectives that both Lance and Timo bring to this discussion. 

Key Takeaways:

  • What is the Placebo effect & how does it influence our health?
  • What is the Nocebo effect & how does it influence our lifespan?
  • The impact of the subconscious mind on our health & happiness
  • Dr. Emoto’s work on water & consciousness
  • How quantum physics expands our control of mind over matter
  • We are the ultimate creators when we know how
  • Key tips on how to regain conscious control
  • When we change our habits, we can change our lives!

So sit back, enjoy with an open mind - Stay Curious, and Stay Free and, very importantly, please do let us know what you think in the comments or the reviews. Thank you.
