Sunday Morning Services ~ The Placebo Effect
9:30am & 11:15am
When I was a child I remember going to the Doctors office. Back then the odor of the place was for me a uniquely antiseptic smell.

In fact, I recall having to do a little acting for the Doctor to replay the symptoms I had at home. If I was healed before seeing the doctor what was really happening?
Just as our thoughts can make us ill they can also help us heal. “The mind is our most potent weapon in the battle for health” says Lyn Freeman a researcher of mind body therapies for chronic diseases. “It can be both slayer and healer.”
