In this chapter of the review, we will take a rational look at what Pam Ragland claims her brand of Thought Shifting can accomplish.
>> April 2015 UPDATE <<
Apparently Pam Ragland has taken down all the posted content at pamraglandsblog.com. Her blog posts went back almost a decade detailing her many incredible healing claims. Ragland may ‘intend’ to wash away many of the more ridiculous claims that were linked in the review below, which were conveniently missing.
Unfortunately for Pam Ragland, the Internet does not always forget and thanks to Archive.org, all of Pam’s missing posts and claims have been restored.
The links in this review have been updated to accurately reference to Pam Ragland’s Thought Shifting claims. Several new claims have also been added to the list that were previously missed.

That is an impressive
delusional list of what Pam Ragland claims her brand of Thought Shifting can accomplish.
Over the last decade, Pam Ragland’s marketed brand of Thought Shifting has wildly expanded the alleged healing and curing claims to almost every single malady plaguing the entire human race.
Many of Ragland’s healing claims (Cancer, PTSD, MS, Heroin addiction, etc.) are for serious life threatening illnesses or addictions that would require serious medical professional attention and treatment.
While the Law of Attraction and Thought Shifting may appeal to people that are desperate and suffering serious health issues, there is little evidence to support the belief that you can “think” these issues away. Most claims of evidence are either anecdotal, linked to the placebo effect, or motivated more by a ‘desire to believe’ than by any real scientific evidence.
