week supply of pills. the results seemed miraculous. >> as the days went on i kept feeling better. now i'm thinking what's in this? >> pauley: what was the special something in those pills? it was, drum roll, absolutely nothing. is linda was taking placebos like these with no real medication in them at all. is what makes her story even more astonishing linda was told e >> i remember the first day i took ity am i taking this? it's like a waste of my time. when i saw that i felt better, i was thinking, maybe just told me it was a placebo and new medication they're trying out. >> pauley: kid kaptchuk a professor at harvard medical school ran the experiment. >> everyone thought i was crazy.
8:17 am
subjects in his study record getting better even though they knew they were taking a placebo. >> a placebo is an inert substance, usually something like cellulose, starch, sugar. placebo effect is everything that surrounds that pill, the interaction between patient, doctor and nurse. it's the rituals. these are powerful forces. >> doctors have understood the power of placebos at least since they were used in clinical but fake pills work only in certain cases. >> there are a lot of illness you don't give placebos for, cancer, lowering cholesterol. basically the scope where a placebo effect is relevant is any symptom that the brain can modulate by itself. >> in those cases, just making an appointment, going to a doctor and taking a pill
8:18 am
will report some symptomatic relief from taking a substance that is not biologically active. >> dr. arthur barsky is saw psychiatrist at brigham and women's hospital in boston. he says people even report side effects from placebos. clearly we are highly suggestible creatures. >> there are some studies, for example, with asthma. attack by showing someone a pollen that they're allergic to. i had a patient who had allergic dermatitis to cats she saw cat on television set on the screen, started to itch. >> aware of the power of the mind, as many as half of all american doctors admit to having prescribed some form of placebo, according to a 2008 study. >> there's a lot of things we do
8:19 am

8:20 am
specializes in parkinson's disease. drugs used in parkinson's help the brain make dopamine. turns out, placebos do, too. >> this can be measured objectively. measurable changes within the brain. >> very much so. >> depression comes with parkinson's you can really sink pretty fast. >> bob walton has lived with parkinson's for more than a decade. dr. espay enrolled him in a study supposedly expensive drug to a cheaper one. >> i actually felt a little better after i got the expensive one. >> guess what. >> he did an hour and half, it was both say leap solutions. >> both placebos. is. >> of course, no price difference at all. so we have twice as much improvement if i think it cost a lot. >> exactly. >> not only did the supposedly expensive drug do twice the job,
8:21 am
parkinson's drug. >> they thought that because it was expensive it has to be good. >> correct. >> that alone can affect things physiologically. >> it does. >> the lesson here says dr. espay, when patients believe in their medications, those medications just may work better. now to do your experiment you had to mislead people. >> i did. >> how did you feel about that? >> terrible. >> in fact, outside of american medical association frowns on deception in treating patients. >> patients cannot be given a placebo without informed consent told, clearly transparently what it is. is. >> but given linda buonanno's success with placebos for ibs it may not matter if patients know, which raises an interesting question. >> i think the next step is how do we concretely use placebo
8:22 am
>> there some are ways in which we might be able to, not deceive the patient, but still get the benefit. you tell the patient, we're going to give you the active medicine but on some days you're going to get a placebo. if that were to work would you then lessen it is chance of addiction, tolerance, it's cheaper. >> meanwhile, linda's symptoms are back full force. but she has an appointment with professor kaptchuk. >> possibly going fog on placebos again see what happens. >> seems so strange to hear i'm going on placebos. i am about to start taking nothing again. >> exactly. >> pauley: coming up. small wonders. >> learn how to water for five years as an apprentice. then you keep learning how to

8:28 am
or rolex. or, as we saw it, another nursery, seikouen they can cost as much as a house. hundreds of thousands of dollars. the ron buy for this class may never sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars. but student to sees greatness in her little tree. i'm trying to create something that evokes the image of being in the told us. when the leaves sprout you'll have that sensation. while wiring some tiny branches, jones argued bonsai is worth the investment. considering they can take generations to design. >> the japanese aesthetics of bonsai are considered the most refined. the most subtle, the most sophisticated. >> he called it a dialogue with the tree. it's a conversation that has been going on here for
