You Are the Placebo by Dr Joe Dispenza (Paperback Book)
English Paperback Book
Is it possible to heal without drugs or surgery, but rather by thought alone? The truth is that it happens more often than you might expect.
You Are the Placebo combines the latest research in neuroscience, biology, psychology, hypnosis, behavioral conditioning, and quantum physics to demystify the workings of the placebo effect, all the while showing you how the seemingly impossible can become possible.
In You Are the Placebo, Dr Joe shares numerous documented cases of those who reversed cancer, heart disease, depression, crippling arthritis, and even the tremors of Parkinson’s disease by believing in a placebo. Similarly, Dr Joe tells of how others have gotten sick and even died after being misdiagnosed with a fatal illness, or believing they are the victims of a hex or voodoo curse. Belief can be so strong that pharmaceutical companies use double and triple-blind randomized studies to try to exclude the power of the mind over the body when evaluating new drugs.
Dr Joe does more than simply explore the history and the physiology of the placebo effect. He asks the question: “Is it possible to teach the principles of the placebo, and without relying on any external substance, produce the same internal changes in a person’s health and ultimately in his or her life?” Then he shares scientific evidence (including color brain scans) of amazing healings from his workshops where participants learn his model of personal transformation based on practical applications of the so-called placebo effect. The book ends with a “how-to” meditation for changing beliefs and perceptions that hold us back—the first step in healing.
