Maximizing The Ability of Drugs

Many people complain of drugs taken are not effective. It turns out there is the key for the drug benefit is so potent. How do I?

Scientists from Oxford, Cambridge and 2 other universities from Germany found recovered or not an illness rather than just depending on the medicine, but also greatly influenced by the mind.

Patients will recover faster if in his mind no doubt about the desirability and efficacy of drugs those wear.

This is evidenced in experiments involving 22 volunteers, the experts proved that the power of the mind is important in healing disease.

In initial experiments, given the intensity of pain stimuli through a heater this is affixed to the surface of the skin of the volunteers. The volunteers were asked to score pain with range of 000-100 and obtained an average score that is 66.

Furthermore, the volunteers received pain medication from the class of opiates by intravenous injection. Without knowing what drugs were injected, the volunteer were asked to rate pain again and was on average reduced to 55.

So know that the drugs injected are pain relievers, the average pain score into the lower namely 39. Decrease in pain intensity showed that by believing the drugs given function, more patients benefit from the drug.

Likewise, when the volunteers were told that the drug was discontinued, the average pain score increased again to 64. Yet according to the calculations of experts, the effects of injected drugs should still work until several hours later.

"These findings emphasize that clinicians should not overlook the importance of giving information to patients about what drugs are given and what is its function," said one researcher, Prof Irene Tracey, as quoted from the Telegraph.

Physicians should clearly provide information to patients this drug for what, so that patients understand the function of the medicine and when drinking convinced of the benefits of the drug so as to provide a more potent effect.

The results of this study have been published recently in the journal Science Translational Medicine.
