Ellen Langer Author of Counterclockwise

Ellen Langer has been a professor at Harvard University since 1975. In 1978 she did an amazing study on the power of the mind to affect our mental and physical health. It has been entitled the Counter Clockwise experiment.

In her study she took a group of elderly men and asked them to stay in an isolated hotel room for three days. The hotel had been redirected to simulate the late 1950s . At the end of those three days every person in the study showed documented evidence of improvement in their health.

Here is an interview (http://nhne-pulse.org/interview-counterclockwise-ellen-langer/)where Dr Langer talks about her Counter Clockwise Experiment and a number of other similar experiments which she has done over the years.
