Trouble is although it may not actually 'work' some people might find improvement to ailments due to the placebo effect
That's true, but they may also lie to themselves and others once the placebo effect wears off or fades. This being different in that they would
consciously make the choice as opposed to the subconscious effect of placebo. This behaviour being implemented because of fear of embarrassment, going
back on their word, etc.
In any case, sugar pills are far cheaper and accomplish the same thing. I often wonder if a regulated sugar pill industry should be developed without
consumers being privy, but reducing cost and dangers associated with quack products.
