Smorgasbord Health Column – Down in the Dumps? Perhaps some Pseudoscience might be the key! – Biorhythms by Sally Cronin Posted on August 3, 2021 by Smorgasbord – Variety is the Spice of Life.

There are quite a few therapies and theories that are magnets for those who believe they are pseudoscience. And sure enough, there is quite a bit of quackery out there in one form or another.

I have quite an open mind when it comes to alternative therapies and part of the equation is the power of the mind which manifests itself in the ‘placebo effect’.

This is an improvement in a patient’s condition when their expectations are of a positive outcome from the treatment despite there being no real health benefit. For example, dummy pills are given in a trial to treat a serious disease, that miraculously results in an improvement or even a cure for some patients.

Here Sally looks at the Biorhythm theory…intrigued…I was… pop over and take a look.
