I am trying to recall a medical word which depict following scenario.
A patient goes to doctor; doctor prescribes some medicine and tells that he will be alright soon. The medicine prescribed by doctor is just a dummy medicine, but because doctor said that the patient will be alright soon, the patient starts believing and he will be alright. It is not a medicine which is working, but the word of the doctor.
