Question

I help you in times of need, times of pleasure

Or so it seems.

My foes are split when I'm the talk, am I worthless

Or walk the walk

A barrier to overcome, to be ignored

Or swindle galore

The truth is I am in your head, but illusion

I'm called no more

What am I?

Recapping:

it is related to body chemicals -- but not it is not a substance.

it is medically related, but not a disease.

Alcohol/Drunkenness and the affliction of the mind AND body elements of it is a hint.

voodoo and witchcraft are the closest guesses thus far.

...i'm clueless.

Recap:

I help you in times of need, times of pleasure

Or so it seems.

My foes are split when I'm the talk, am I worthless

Or walk the walk

A fragment of the oldest craft, the modern brotherhood

At me laughed

Were they right or were they wrong, words of confidence

Kept me strong

A barrier to overcome, to be ignored

Or swindle galore

The truth is I am in your head, but illusion

I'm called no more

It is a medicinal reference. It is not a disease.

Keywords towards solving the riddle, as posted by users:

Aromatherapy, witch craft or voodoo, hypnotism, dopamine, hormones, endorphins, drunkenness, nerves, adrenalin.

These words have of course different levels of relevance, but still worth having in mind...

Hehe, Scottie made me to it :P

I think you have managed to get everyone stumped

At least for a while :)

but.....

a placebo?

We have a winner!!!

The placebo effect was what I was after. I would probably have accepted answers in the form or 'new age medicine' or something like that.

Did you like the wording of the riddle? The rhymes and such?
