And you mean to say they DON'T?
Perhaps I should have said LEGITIMATELY at the end

If they received a well marketed product, which showed clear benefit over placebo: It must be better than the old stuff. And indeed the old stuff became less effective. Sub/UN consciously the physician was not selling his product any more.
You would expect more effect if the whole experience is believed by both sides. It therefor that i would like to reinstate placebos as a actual treatment.
I did spend some money on studying Reiki and I received the following words of wisdom: the energy has to be accepted by the person you are treating. Your subject needs to be in on the sharade, for it to work. And that is fine, you may end up with a new wife. Hunting down people who want to make a show of their treatment should be forbidden. Waving your hands over someone, connecting to the universal love and channeling energy should be in the medical courses of any physician. On the other hand, not diverting real patients to actual physicians should equal the middle age penalty of shame: put them on a scaffold and trough tomatoes at them.
