    Yes, the placebo effect is very powerful - but only for illnesses that are psychological (or are exacerbated by psychological factors). All chronic illnesses have psychiatric components and MS is no exception. By all means we should definitely explore psychological factors more, but we really do need to figure out whether or not the patients feeling better is actually due to CCVSI or not - otherwise you are just selling them snake oil!
