And unfortunately, paranormal abilities exist. They may not be currently measurable directly, but they can be indirectly measured through what is commonly known in medical science as the placebo effect--because they, like the ancients who called it magic, have no idea how it happens--in patients who are given "sugar pills" as wonder drugs, and the patient's belief cures him or her;

Left to itself, a cold will be over in about a week, on the other hand, by using sugar pills or just the direct power of the human mind to cure yourself, and you can rid yourself of a cold in about 7 days!
