  •  One of the most curious remedies (1+ / 0-)

    is the effect that the mind has on the body. Mental attitude has been demonstrated (placebo effect, for example) to go a long way towards healing (especially pain issues). A person doesn't really completely know what is going on in his/her mind (the subconscious always comes into play). In some cases even when a person knows that he/she is receiving a placebo, the placebo effect surfaces. Unless you grew a new limb or something, I suspect that your recovery was due to positive thinking. If you were under medical care at the time, your improvement could just be a matter of coincidental timing.
