Product Description

Review

You Are the Placebo is the instruction manual for how to produce miracles in your body, with your health, and in your life. It's simply magnificent. This may be the only prescription you'll ever require. (Christiane Northrup MD New York Times bestselling author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause)

Your mind is so incredibly important to the success or failure of virtually everything you do, from relationships, school, work and finances to overall happiness. You Are the Placebo is a powerful exploration of your most important resource and offers many practical tools to optimize your mind to enhance your overall success. I love Dr Dispenza's way of communicating complex ideas in a way all of us can understand and benefit from. (Daniel G. Amen MD founder of Amen Clinics and New York Times bestselling author of Change Your Brain, Change Your Life and Magnificent Mind at Any Age)

From my experience with patients with life-threatening illnesses, I have learned the truth as shared in You Are the Placebo. The body experiences what the mind believes. I have learned how to deceive people into health for their benefit. Doctors can kill or cure with 'wordswordswords' when they become 'swordswordswords.' We all have the potential for self-induced healing built into us. The key is to know how to achieve your potential. Read and learn. (Bernie Siegel MD author of A Book of Miracles and The Art of Healing)

Dr Joe Dispenza weaves scientific studies together to come up with a true revolutionary approach to using our minds to heal our bodies. I was spellbound. Bravo! (Mona Lisa Schulz MD PhD author of The Intuitive Advisor and All Is Well)

The placebo effect - our response to the belief that we've received a catalyst for healing - has long been studied in medicine as a curious phenomenon. In his paradigm-altering book You Are the Placebo, Dr Joe Dispenza catapults us beyond thinking of the effect as an anomaly. Through 12 concise chapters that read like a true-life scientific thriller, Dispenza gives us rock-solid reasons to accept the game-changer of our lives: that the placebo effect is actually us, proving to ourselves the greatest possibilities of healing, miracles and longevity! I love this book and look forward to a world where the secret of the placebo is the foundation of everyday life. (Gregg Braden New York Times bestselling author of Deep Truth and The Divine Matrix)

Dr Joe Dispenza is a master teacher who has the ability to explain science at a very simple level so that everyone understands. (don Miguel Ruiz MD author of The Four Agreements)

You Are the Placebo is a must-read for anyone who wants to experience optimal health in mind, body and spirit.

Dr Joe Dispenza dispels the myth that our health is out of our control and restores to us our power and right to expect wonderful health and wellbeing throughout our lives by showing us the way to create it. To read this book is to subscribe to the absolute best health insurance available in the world.

(Sonia Choquette six-sensory consultant and New York Times bestselling author of The Answer Is Simple)

If you're looking for a practical explanation to the benefits of meditation, look no further. (Soul & Spirit)

This is the biggest quantum leap you will ever take in this lifetime. People recovering from degenerative diseases time and time again, just by changing the way they think, thanks to Joe Dispenza.

Joe Dispenza has written two previous books, 'Evolve your brain' and 'Breaking the habit of being yourself'. What exactly happens the the physiology of a human being when there is a spontanious remission from terminal cancer. It can happen almost overnight. It happens again and again all over the world, but no-one knows why. So, Dispenza becomes qualified in every science relevant to finding out and sets about finding the answer. What exactly are these people thinking, to make this happen? What is happening in their brains when they are healing?

Brain scans reveal which sections of the brain become activated and stimulate the physiological changes in the body when a person mentally breaks away from the stress programs in their body. Conscious attempts at this are feutile, because it's the body that fills itself with adrenaline and cortisol when the red flag goes up and each and every time, there is absolutely nothing we can do about it.

Joe Dispenza shows the scientific pathway he has been exploring for the past thirty years (since he miraculously recovered from 6 compession fractures of his spine with a spinal cord twisted like a pretzel, surgeons wanting to afix bars down either sides of his vertibrae to prevent him from being paralised and crippled. He went home and fully recovered in 10 weeks, no back pain since. Yes, that's totally impossible, but it happened, so it's not). Brain scans following the route the brain takes people reverse the genetic changes that have occured within your body, hammered by environmental stressors all your life.

Format: Paperback
'You Are the Placebo' written by Joe Dispenza is an insightful book that shows how much power our mind has, and how meditation can help us to overcome various difficulties in life.

Dr. Joe Dispenza raises the question is it possible to heal using only our thoughts, and then at almost 400 pages using numerous examples from his rich practice shows that it happens more often than it might be expected, referring to cases of serious illnesses such as cancer, Parkinson’s disease or problems with heart.

He divided his books into two large sections – Information and Transformation - of which the first part that occupies two-thirds of book is providing the entire background of the placebo effect, its history, perceptions, as well as several cases of personal transformation detailed presentations due to placebo effect. In the second part, the author is turning to the reader offering assistance in meditation preparation and change of personal perceptions.

Although I consider myself a rational person, with this book it is evident that Dispenza skillfully walks the fine line between the science and spiritual; the author is teaching usage of our mind in the purpose of healing the physical body which conflicts with rooted scientific premises. And though I'm not entirely sure could I be fully convinced in such a thing, it seems that author’s main point is the fact that only a healthy mind can result in a healthy body and to treat only the body will not lead to those kind of results which will be achieved if we approach to our health problems in the way to treat our mind and body together.

Dr. Joe Dispenza with his book manages to put the reader in a position to come to such conclusion by him/herself, in order to start making necessary changes in lives we are living.

I have been following Joe Dispenza's work for several years and have attended one of his workshops in 2012.
He is truly inspirational and his work is evidence based.
This book is true to his usual professional and innovative style and goes even further in helping us to help ourselves.
A book really worth reading.
For anyone inspired by this book, his website has lots of free articles.

This book really well explains how meditation can be used to heal the body. Unique about this book is how it combines so many different aspects (biology, psychology, quantum physics, neuroscience) to bring accross the message of how meditation can benefit anybody. The brain scans of people doing the meditations with Dr Joe, are a real bonus.

I have been doing the meditations of Dr Joe Dispenza for a while. This book was a real break through for me, in terms of understanding the different elements of the meditations and what their purpose are. After reading ths book, I feel more inspired than ever to continue the meditations.

I was simply enthralled by the way Joe took me down a path never envisaged by me in my 75 years. I am hoping that i will be able to reach inside myself and eventually find a fascinating new world out there. I am already and have always been grateful for my life and my family and friends but a new level of gratitude there may well be.
