Treeman syndrome, Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV)

Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV), also known as treeman syndrome, is an extremely rareautosomal recessive hereditary skin disorder associated with a high risk of skin cancer. It is characterized by abnormal susceptibility to human papillomaviruses (HPVs) of the skin. The resulting uncontrolled HPV infections result in the growth of scaly macules and papules resembling tree bark, particularly on the hands and feet. It is typically associated with HPV types 5 and 8, which are found in about 80% of the normal population as asymptomatic infections, although other types may also contribute.

मेहंदी के रंग से लम्हे

जो सिर्फ़ अपनी ख़ुशबू छोड़ गए, काश़ वे लम्हें

मेहंदी के रंगों की तरह हथेलियों में रच बस जाते.

प्लेसीबो इफेक्ट

अपने मन का खुद इलाज संभव है, बस सकारात्मक सोच की जरुरत है।

Rate this:

प्लेसीबो इफेक्ट ऐसी चिकित्सा को कहते हैं जिसका कोई वैज्ञानिक आधार नही है। ऐसी चिकित्सा पद्धति या तो प्रभावहीन होती है, या काफी सुधार दिखता है। उसका कारण साकारात्मा मानसिक स्थिति होती है। प्लेसीबो के उपयोग से अक्सर लाभ होता दिखता है। जिसे प्लेसीबो इफेक्ट या प्लेसीबो रिस्पॉन्स कहते हैं। प्लेसीबो इफेक्ट के पीछे कई अन्य साकारात्मा मानसिक ‘प्रभाव’ होते हैं जो लाभ पैदा करते हैं। इस विषय पर अनेकों मनोवैज्ञानिक शोध चल रहें है।

इसे एक नकली उपचार भी कह सकते हैं। एक निष्क्रिय पदार्थ जैसे कि चीनी या जल दवा के तौर पर देने पर कभी-कभी, कुछ हालातों में रोगी की स्थिति में सुधार होती हैं क्योंकि व्यक्ति को यह उम्मीद होती है कि यह असल दवा है जो मददगार होगी। पर यह हर हालात में काम नहीं करती। कुछ स्थितियों में प्लेसीबो प्रभाव एक शक्तिशाली तरीका साबित हो रहा है।। एक व्यक्ति जितना अधिक विश्वास करता है कि वे एक उपचार से लाभान्वित होने जा रहे हैं, उतनी अधिक संभावना है कि वे लाभ का अनुभव करेंगे।








What is Placebo Effect

Treating yourself with your mind is possible, but there is more to it than positive thinking.

Rate this:

Placebo effect: Also called the placebo response. A remarkable phenomenon in which a placebo — a fake treatment, an inactive substance like sugar, distilled water, or saline solution — can sometimes improve a patient’s condition simply because the person has the expectation that it will be helpful. Expectation to plays a potent role in the placebo effect. The more a person believes they are going to benefit from a treatment, the more likely it is that they will experience a benefit.

To separate out this power of positive thinking and some other variables from a drug’s true medical benefits, companies seeking governmental approval of a new treatment often use placebo-controlled drug studies. If patients on the new drug fare significantly better than those taking placebo, the study helps support the conclusion that the medicine is effective. The power of positive thinking is not a new subject.Research is ongoing as to why some people experience changes even when they are only receiving a placebo.



A short story on Placebo effect


Maria lived with her mother in a small apartment in NYC.She wasn’t too young or too old..not too short or too tall..not particularly beautiful nor ugly..She was just an average woman.

She worked as a secretary at a large company and her life was pretty much boring and mundane.No one at work paid any attention to her…Those that did considered her to be as boring as her life was.

One morning, on her way to work, Maria saw a new hat shop that opened down the street.

In a spur of curiosity she walked in!In the shop was a little girl and her mother,who came to pick the girl a hat, and another customer who was trying on hats…

Maria also tried on a few hats, until she found one she liked.She put it on and, It looked nice!

First to notice was the little girl : “Mommy, look how pretty that woman looks with the hat on!”

The mother said: “Ma’am, I must say, this hat just looks wonderful on you!”

The second buyer also came to look : “Ma’am, you look lovely with that hat on!”

Maria went to the mirror..She looked at herself.And for the first time in her adult life.She liked what she saw.Smiling, she went to the counter and bought the hat.

As she walked outside a new world revealed itself to her. She never before noticed the colors of the flowers.or the scent of the fresh air..

The sound of the cars and the people..

sounded like an harmonious melody..

She walked as if drifting on a cloud..

with a song in her heart..

When she passed by the coffee shop she walked by every morning, one of the young handsome man called out to her:

“Hey darling..looking good! Are you new here? Can I buy you a cup of coffee? ”

She smiled shyly and kept walking..

Floating on her cloud…

When she got to the office building, the doorman opened the door and wished her Good Morning..

Never before had he even noticed her!

The people in the elevator asked her the floor she needed and pressed the button for her.

The people at the office, as if seeing her for the first time, flattered her on how lovely she looked today.

The manager asked her out to lunch to talk about how she felt at work!

When this magical workday was over she decided to take a cab home instead of the bus. As soon as she put her hand up 2 taxis stopped!

She took the first one and sat in the back seat..

Thinking about the miraculous day she had and how her life changed!! Thanks to the new hat!

When she got home, her mom opened the door.

The sight of Maria took her breath away!

“Maria” she said surprised “How beautiful you look! Your eyes are all lit up like when you were a little girl! ”

“Yes, mother” Said Maria

“It’s all thanks to my new hat, I had the most marvelous day!”

“Maria” said her mother, “What hat??”

Maria panicked.

She touched her head and saw that the hat that changed her life was not there… She didn’t remember taking it off in the cab..

Or at lunch..

Or at the office..

She thought back to the store where she had bought it..

How she noticed it for the first time..

She put it on..

Paying for it at the cashier’s…

And she remembered painfully now..

How she put it on the counter..

To get her purse out to pay..

And how she forgot the hat right there..

On the counter…

Then she walked out to the street..

Hat-less yet glowing!

It wasn’t the hat that freed Maria,

it was the quality of her thoughts!

Our thoughts can enslave us into a horrible bondage or liberate us towards sweet freedom: to be, do, or have anything we wish for!!

This is called as Placebo effect..

Your mind is so powerful that it can create poison as well as Nectar.

You just need to know how to create it.
