A Placebo Is Not a Cure





By Atom Bergstrom

The word “placebo” is almost always misused.

It doesn’t mean you’re healed by a sugar pill.

It doesn’t mean you’re healed by hypnosis or animal magnetism.

It doesn’t mean you’re healed by self-suggestion or self-hypnosis.

It doesn’t mean you’re healed. Period.


Placebo means “I shall please.”

It’s part of a phrase from the Roman Catholic Church’s Vespers for the Dead …

“I shall please the Lord in the land of the living.”


According to the Mainstream Medical Matrix, what does placebo mean?

Definition of placebo …

1) “a harmless pill, medicine, or procedure prescribed more for the psychological benefit to the patient than for any physiological effect.”

2) “a substance that has no therapeutic effect, used as a control in testing new drugs.”

3) “a measure designed merely to please someone.”


So, by Mainstream Medical Matrix definition, placebo and healing are not synonymous.

Placebo is when you think you’re cured from stuttering, but you’re still stuttering.

Everyone else thinks you stutter, but you don’t.


So, is melatonin a placebo or a genuine cure for the medically designated syndrome of insomnia?

Melatonin is a genuine cure.

But, what’s this? Melatonin is a stress hormone brought on by darkness. It’s not a sleep aid at all.

Humans are diurnal, yet our circadian rhythms are identical to rats, which are nocturnal.

So melatonin is NOT a placebo because it cures insomnia more often than not.

But it’s not a chemical cure. It’s a mental cure — something the Medical Matrix doesn’t want you to know.

Melatonin, the WORD — not the hormone — cures insomnia.

How cool is that?


What doesn’t the Medical Matrix want you to know?

All medically designated diseases (or at least 99% of them) originate IN YOUR HEAD, not in your liver or big toe.

Look at all the diseases Dr. John E. Sarno (1923-2017) consigned to the mind.

And what about the ones he missed?

Helen Flanders Dunbar (1902-1959) listed many of them.

So did Franz Alexander (1891-1964).

And Karl Menninger (1893-1990).

And his brother, Brigadier General William C. Menninger (1899-1966).

And Swami Nitty-Gritty (1924-1989).


The Medical Matrix propaganda machine wants you to believe your mind can’t heal.

They want their patients to feel good (good and helpless) about having cancer.

That’s the real purpose of a placebo.

But the mind can make you well.

Look at my friend Judy Utley, who had spinal cancer, breast cancer, and lung cancer.

She outlived — by years — the doctor who diagnosed her with terminal cancer, saying she only had a week or so at most to live.

Look at the boy with fish-scale disease (a genetic “incurable” nightmare medically called congenital ichthyosiform erythrodermia) who was cured with hypnosis by Dr. Albert Mason.

Placebo would have left the boy “thinking” he didn’t have fish-scale disease.

But everyone else would still see and smell the “black horny layer” covering his skin and oozing blood-stained serum that stunk to high heaven.

Dr. Albert Mason’s dramatic cure was hardly a placebo.

It was a phenomenal, measurable, physical, in-your-face, outright CURE.

A cure is not a placebo.

And a placebo is not a cure.


It’s all too easy to get snookered by the Matrix, both the Medical Matrix and the cultural and environmental ones.

Case in point, Bruce Lipton (“A Mistake Turned Miracle,” Feb. 13, 2018) wrote …

“When Mason wrote about his startling treatment for ichthyosis in the British Medical Journal in 1952, his article created a sensation. [Mason 1952] Mason was touted in the media and became a magnet for patients suffering from the rare, lethal disease that no one before had ever cured. But hypnosis was in the end not a cure-all. Mason tried it on a number of other ichthyosis patients, but he was never able to replicate the results he had had with the young boy. Mason attributes his failure to his own belief about the treatment. When Mason treated the new patients he couldn’t replicate his cocky attitude as a young physician thinking he was treating a bad case of warts. After that first patient, Mason was fully aware that he was treating what everyone in the medical establishment knew to be a congenital, ‘incurable’ disease. Mason tried to pretend that he was upbeat about the prognosis, but he told the Discovery Health Channel, ‘I was acting.’ [Discovery Health Channel 2003]”

    Ray Peat (“Bleeding, clotting, cancer,” 2006) wrote …

    “Since the blood becomes more concentrated, viscous, and clottable during the night (especially during long winter nights), the risk of a heart attack or stroke would probably be reduced by drinking orange juice before getting out of bed (and at bed-time), to dilute the blood and decrease adrenaline and the free fatty acids, which contribute to the increased tendency to form clots in the morning. (Assanelli, et al., discuss the importance of adrenaline in morning/winter sudden death; Antoniades and Westmoreland show that the availability of glucose can override major promoters of clotting and bleeding.)”
