She explains how meditation can protect against depression and dementia, how social connections increase life expectancy, and how the mind's ability to heal has vast potential.

A really great book discussing this is Jo Marchant's Cure. Highly recommended. I do think that placebo might have a profound influence on how a diet is experienced. If a diet is expected to be anti-inflammatory, I do wonder if it might in fact be anti-inflammatory.      source
