Creating Waves of Awareness

The AMERICAN HERITAGE DICTIONARY defines placebo as:

A substance containing no medication administered for its psychological effect on a patient or an inactive substance used as a control in an experiment

The OXFORD DICTIONARY OF CURRENT ENGLISH defines it as:

Medicine with no physiological effect prescribed for psychological reason
or dummy pill used in a control trial.

I consider the latter more in keeping with what we consider in Homeopathy as placebo.

There will be others who may discuss this topic further.

I find these two definitions to be of use
collins dictionary--
placebo
n pl , -bos, -boes 1 (Med) an inactive substance or other sham form of therapy administered to a patient usually to compare its effects with those of a real drug or treatment, but sometimes for the psychological benefit to the patient through his believing he is receiving treatment .
placebo effect
n (Med) a positive therapeutic effect claimed by a patient after receiving a placebo believed by him to be an active drug.
English Collins Dictionary - English Definition
*********************************************************************************************************************
Webster Medical DIctionary:-
Main Entry: pla·ce·bo
Pronunciation: pl-s-()b
Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): plural -bos
1 : a usually pharmacologically inert preparation prescribed more for the mental relief of the patient than for its actual effect on a disorder
2 : an inert or innocuous substance used especially in controlled experiments testing the efficacy of another substance (as a drug) .
