Is it possible to heal by thought alone—without drugs or surgery? The truth is that it happens more often than you might expect!
Throughout history up until present, many cultures have traditionally experienced the effects of verifiable healings, along with hexes, curses, witchcraft, voodoo, and other mysterious phenomena. These effects—many of which were elicited by unscientific means—were brought about by the beliefs and lore of the society. Even today, pharmaceutical companies use double- and triple-blind randomized studies in an attempt to exclude the power of the mind over the body. In You Are the Placebo, Dr. Joe Dispenza explores the history, the science, and the practical applications of the so-called placebo effect.
Citing many amazing individual cases studies, this compelling book will empower you to personally use “the expectation of a particular outcome” to alter your internal states—as well as external reality—solely through the action of your mind. It offers the necessary understandings to change old beliefs and perceptions into new ones. In addition, it teaches a model of personal transformation that correlates with the placebo effect—without the need for any external influences (“placebos” such as sugar pills, saline injections, and so on).
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, in which 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.
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 . . . and show how the seemingly impossible can become possible!
