Pick a specific psychological condition in the pull-down menu below. Press "Submit" to calculate the most custom-suited placebo, in terms of color and design, for that condition.
Placebos are mind-suggestion tools, and can make you sleepy, or energetic, depending on their suggested purpose. Placebos often take the form of an inert sugar pill, and their color or design can make a noticeable difference in their tailored effect. For example, reds tend to make better "uppers," while blues make better tranquilizers. The more powerful the expectations of the participant, the greater the placebo's effect.
Depending on the problem and treatment options, harnessing the mind's proneness to suggestion requires stagecraft for the best results. The options presented here are based upon current thought, but should be further studied for complete confirmation.
Perhaps future placebos will be designed to fit individual users according to their unique personality profiles. To add to this particular placebo list, send us an email.
