Catching up on TV today I ran into an old research study that was presented in 2010 about the Placebo Effect and IBS. This was on CBS Sunday morning as their feature story on October 9. While I was disappointed that some viewers might get the wrong idea about IBS that it can be simply managed by fooling a patient into believing that a placebo medicine might work like an evidenced based one, I'm curious to know of anyone who might have been involved in this study. It's been widely stated for many years that IBS Patients have a higher than usual placebo response, yet there has never been any research that I am aware of, to explain why this is the case.
