1) A pill that contains nothing medically useful or harmful for the body, but is still meant to treat you using the placebo effect, which is
2) an as yet unproven effect where the body cures itself in the belief that it is going to be cured.
The placebo shows a success rate in nearly one third of the people it was tested on.

Innefective medication given to someone to psychologically make them well. They think that they have been given medication that makes them better so their mind makes themself get better because they think the drug is taking effect. Confusing.
Dr. Jimbob: We got a guy at the front desk complaining that he is critically ill. I don't think he is though, I mean I've checked him over and he's fine.

Dr. Thomas: Just give him a placebo, that should sort it.

A pill given to hypochondriacts that makes them think it will cure them, even though it's an inactve pill with no effect. Some people just need attention to feel better, and a placebo does the job.
This lady had herself convinced she was so sick, that I gave her a placebo to appease her desire for medication.
