The cool thing about the placebo effect is that it works even if you know it’s a placebo.

    This 60 minutes segment highlighted the potential benefits of the placebo effect but shinned just a little light on alternative treatment strategies for mild depression such as those in the UK which include regular physical activity. The belief that exercise is good for health is not a novel concept, but rather predates the historical writings of ancient Greek philosophy. There are no side effects from moderate exercise and the pleiotropic benefits for our body and mind are remarkable. Further, mo medication in the world can match the collective health-enhancing effects of regular exercise. Perhaps we need to identify inactive people with ‘exercise deficit disorder’ early in life before they suffer from the inevitable cascade of adverse health consequences later in life. Individuals who are not meeting the current recommendations for physical activity (i.e., at least 30 minutes on most days of the week) should be identified and treated with the same energy and resolve as a patient with a traditional medical condition. We should adhere to the wisdom of the ancient Greek physicians and make every attempt to promote the modern day concept that exercise really is medicine.
