Please review article summary[edit]

The article summary only says that Autosuggestion "is a psychological technique", "has not been proven", and that somebody believes in it. These are things that a quick reader doesn't care about. What does autosuggestion mean? This is missing. 156.62.3.26 (talk) 22:20, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Evidence and clinical trials?[edit]

The evidence section says: "In the early 20th century, Emile Coue used autosuggestion to cure patients; his work is evidence to support the existence of autosuggestion and the power of the human mind". How is "his work" evidence? In the early 20th century, people also used radium water to "cure" patients, resulting in painful death. Also, the "clinical trials" talks about a different technique, and says very little about autosuggestion itself. Destynova (talk) 03:00, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
