The Human Body is made up of 50%-80% Water
Thoughts, feelings and emotions, the things we can’t see, are primary drivers of our biological systems

During the Nazi Reign a huge number of concentration camps were built as a part of antisemitism.
Our unconscious mind can be more powerful than physical circumstances
We are in control of our own bodies to a very large extent

The Importance of Thoughts
TOK Presentation
By Annie and Lily
Emotion: Sadness
Risk of coronary failure or stroke is doubled in the first month of bereavement
Takotsubo syndrome
Evidence from other studies suggests that bereavement can lead to changes in blood clotting, blood pressure, stress hormone levels and heart rate control - Dr Shah [UK General Practitioner]
Stress
We fear a situation, so we get stressed
Headaches, upset stomach, elevated blood pressure, chest pain, and problems sleeping
Emotion: Optimism
Broken Heart Syndrome
Emotion: Fear
It's a generally accepted fact that those who are more optimistic have generally better heath than pessimists
Proved by countless studies such as the one conducted by the study conducted by the University of Illinois
Thanks for Listening
hhh
Evolution
Nocebos from an evolutionary perspective
Mental cue of switching your immune system on and off
Survival of the Fittest
Appeal to Authority
Trust in our Doctors
Doctors are the most trusted profession
If we trust our doctors are doing the right thing, then our unconscious mind may response in return
Religion
“The greatest mistake in the treatment of diseases is that there are physicians for the body and physicians for the soul, although the two cannot be separated .” - Plato
Studies looking at pain and spirituality found the more religious you are, the less pain you feel
during treatment
The relationship between Faith and Medicine
Tortured Prisoner
Medical experiment
Blindfolded and tied up in the dark, told he was going to be killed
Made small cuts
Played sound of water dripping
Classical Conditioning
"An innate response to a potent biological stimulus becomes expressed in response to a previously neutral stimulus"
Pavlov's Dogs
Could possibly explain the Nocebo Effect
If worked last time, it should work this time?
Christian Kids Dying due to Parents Refusing Medical Care
Pentecostal group known as the Followers of Christ
Punishes members who seek medical care by shunning them from church
Evident in a small town in America Idaho
Syllogism
Logical fallacies
Syllogism
Logically thinking about the real life situation
Premise 1: If you are deeply cut, you will bleed
Premise 2: If you bleed without avail, you will die
Conclusion: If you are not deeply cut and do not bleed without avail, you will not die
An example of logical thinking
Paul Enck and Winfried Hauser and Ernil Hansen reviewed 31 studies that demonstrated the nocebo effect in the journal Deutsche Ärzteblatt International
Most Prominently:
Lactose Intolerance
Depression
The Nocebo Effect
Logical Fallacy
Due to the fact that the real life situation was found in a memoir of a solider, may be plausible
Possible aims could include inducing hatred for the Nazi or telling these stories to gain attention
Anecdotal fallacy
- using a personal experience or an isolated example instead of sound reasoning or compelling evidence
History
Unpublicized Medical Experiments
Reasons to hate Nazi's
Unpublicized Medical Experiments
Another Reason to dislike Nazi's
Historically, Nazi activity has been immensely frowned upon, and for good evidenced reason
However, as this is from a memoir, it may not be true
Made up to further justify dislike for the Nazi's
The Scientific Method
Many medical experiments are still continuously being brought to the public eye
Very likely that this torture experiment will be brought to the public in the future.
