I think people severely underestimate the power of thoughts and beliefs. 
In 1957, a man known as  “Mr. Wright” was dying of lymph node cancer that had spread through his body. Baseball-sized tumors were visible all over his body. Doctors agreed that NOTHING could possibly save him. 

Mr.Wright did some own personal research and strongly believed a drug called Krebiozen would save him. He convinced the doctors to inject him with it. 
After a single dose of Krebiozen, the tumors shrunk by more than half. Ten days later, he was discharged from the hospital.

However, a few months later Mr. Wright learned that the Krebiozen proved to be ineffective in curing cancer. Immediately, the cancer returned just as bad as before. 
In a desperate attempt to save his life, doctors gave Mr. Wright a “new super-refined double-strength” version of Krebiozen that, they claimed, had just been developed.

The substance was, in fact, just a saltwater solution.

Nonetheless, Mr. Wright’s tumors again miraculously shrunk, and he left the hospital days later. Sadly, a few months after that, he read that no form of Krebiozen had worked on cancer patients, and he promptly died.

But do you think if Mr.Wright hadn’t found out that out about Krebiozen he would’ve lived healthy for many years? The answer is possibly. 
Your mind is a very powerful tool.

when they say the cure for cancer can be in anybody’s head…

of course thoughts and beliefs govern your reality. This has been known for thousands of years all over the world, but our society doesn’t emphasize or acknowledge it enough.

there’s this theory out there that some drugs work because you’ve been told that they work. it’s like 70% your beliefs and 30% because of the chemical reaction

Washoe was a chimp who was taught sign language.
One of Washoe’s caretakers was pregnant and missed work for many weeks after she miscarried. Roger Fouts recounts the following situation:
"People who should be there for her and aren’t are often given the cold shoulder—her way of informing them that she’s miffed at them. Washoe greeted Kat [the caretaker] in just this way when she finally returned to work with the chimps. Kat made her apologies to Washoe, then decided to tell her the truth, signing "MY BABY DIED." Washoe stared at her, then looked down. She finally peered into Kat’s eyes again and carefully signed "CRY", touching her cheek and drawing her finger down the path a tear would make on a human (Chimpanzees don’t shed tears). Kat later remarked that one sign told her more about Washoe and her mental capabilities than all her longer, grammatically perfect sentences." [23]
Washoe herself lost two children; one baby died shortly after birth of a heart defect, the other baby, Sequoyah, died of a staph infection at two months of age.

more about Washoe:
after the death of her children, researchers were determined to have Washoe raise a baby and brought in a ten month chimpanzee named Loulis. one of the caretakers went to Washoe’s enclosure and signed “i have a baby for you.” Washoe became incredibly excited, yelling and swaying from side to side, signing “baby” over and over again. then she signed “my baby.”
the caretaker came back with Loulis, and Washoe’s excitement disappeared entirely. she refused to pick Loulis up, instead signing “baby” apathetically; it was clear that the baby she thought she was getting was going to be Sequoyah. eventually Washoe did approach Loulis, and by the next day the two had bonded and from then on she was utterly devoted to him.
*information shamelessly paraphrased from When Elephants Weep by Jeffrey Masson.

Even more interestingly, after Washoe and Loulis bonded, she started teaching him American Sign Language the same way that human parents teach their children language. It only took Loulis eight days to learn his first sign from Washoe, and aside from the seven that his human handlers learned around him, he learned to speak in ASL just as fluently as Washoe and was able to communicate with humans in the same way she could.

now if y’all don’t think this is the tightest shit you can get outta my face
