Persons who consider spirituality important, Dispenza’s book will consider extremely valuable
on 30 April 2014
'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.
Every reader will judge how much the author’s thoughts will be helpful, but I'm quite sure that the persons who consider spirituality important in their lives, his book will consider extremely valuable.
