We are taking about healing and not causation and prevention.C is straight Out.

Now B is not that strong an option at all.On my first reading I ruled out B because it doesn't effect the conclusion "psychological support has an effect on the body's ability to heal" at all.Correct me if I am wrong.

After reading it again 10 more times still can't wrap my head around this logic though I understood the solution given by a few.

How can choosing to go or not help "ability to heal".

Would love to hear the opinion of some experienced GMATtutors. Does this logic apply to Official sources...?

B and C were my problem also. C says something about causation and prevention, but the disease already occurred.
So that's why I crossed C out.
Hence B

Hi,
I can understand your pain.
I too did spend quite a lot of time on this question. Let me help you with this one.
We have to strengthen the hypothesis that support group and counselling help in recovery.
So what B is saying is that people who attended the course were not more sick than the folks who did not attend the course. This means that the folks who attended recovered faster than the folks who did not attend.
Treat this question as assumption strengthener question.
Hope it helps
