Healing from the bootstraps

He's the best physician who knows the worthlessness of the most medicines.
- Benjamin Franklin, statesman, author, and inventor (1706-1790)

The number of worthless medicines is no smaller today than it was in Franklin's time. What has increased is the number of effective medicines.

And yet, no medicine works unless the body is prepared to heal itself. If it is ready then medicine might not be necessary.

The key is mental preparedness. That is, whatever method you choose to heal yourself, you must be convinced that it will work or you might just get worse.
