  • Placebo Effect: How the mind (and body) responds to what we think

      By. Dr. Alicia Maher Have you ever flinched at the sight of blood? Or yawned when you see someone else do so? Our brains are reacting to things even when we aren’t conscious of it.

  • Break Unwanted Habits With Mindfulness!
