There are many case studies of patients like Mr. Wright, who cured themselves of cancer and other deadly diseases as a result of a profoundly deep belief in a placebo. The mind is powerful enough to cure us of almost any disease. The problem is that no one has ever figured out how to create a belief deep enough to effect a cure. I cured myself of influenza in a two hour period in 1991, but I have been unsuccessful in all my subsequent attempts. I have tried self-hypnosis, but even that is not enough because I was trying to cure myself. Here lies the challenge: To effect a cure with the mind, you must know that you can do it. Trying is simply not effective at all.
