Additional comment since the review the I think of this book, the angrier I get I now feel the author is a fraud, even if he believes what he is saying Kind of like a Billy Graham Can t believe he was invited to give a TED Talk Has diminished the Talks in my eyes I ve hesitated commenting on this book Not sure why I suspended my skepticism when reading it, but by the end it all came tumbling out First off, I do believe the brain is something remarkable something we don t fully understand I believe there have been miracles, like faith healing But I don t have much any respect for faith healers Dispenza attempts to make a science out of the topic It s not the topic I object to, but his writing, and what he is trying to do, Took me a while to figure that out he is preying on booomers giving us hope when the medical profession can t help us In theory, nothing wrong with giving someone hope But I feel he is doing it to line his pockets buy my book, take my week long workshops, by my audio CDs, buy my videos And he does under the guise of science First off he gives many examples writes extensively about them of remarkable events like walking on hot coals without getting burnt that have nothing with what he proposes you do to become the placebo, i.e., to heal yourself or alter your personality Then I think he writes way too much me thinks he protests to much about the so called science of the brain and why it can be used as a placebo It comes across like a lot of hokum like he is making it up The very last chapter of the book he finally gets to examples of people who have changed using his methods and they have take one or of his week long workshops and how you can become your own placebo The process involves mediation and does he have audio CDs to sell you to help you with it I m not opposed to meditation and I m sure it has helped some people I just think Dispeza is making an industry of it and I don t appreciate the way he is selling it If you buy the book, I do hope it helps you. You Are The Placebo making your mind matter by Dr Joe Dispenza 1st edition available April 2014 ISBN 978 1 4019 4458 2 is where spirituality meets science, where the reader is introduced to how powerful our thoughts can be and the effect it has on our physical body A book about mind body connection, about healing ourselves, simplified to layman s terms where anyone can understand and grasp the concepts presented within its pages Dr Dispenza includes in his book a specific meditation geared to change, alter or heal any condition the reader is presently experiencing Also available as a companion to this book will be an audio CD of the meditation listed in YOU Are The Placebo.The author s intention for this book is to place the reader in the driver s seat, to empower us to create the needed changes in our lives It s about transforming illness and disease, about healing not only the body, but also the mind His purpose is to introduce the one healing modality that most captured his attention and that is healing through thought alone You Are The Placebo is an in depth source of information on what the placebo effect actually is, and how to tap into the power of the mind to create healing Dr Dispenza documents countless cases throughout the book as a means of explaining the power we all are capable of tapping into, the book is geared to bring the reader to their own explorations of the mind body connections Dr Dispenza has intimately experienced first hand the power of engaging the mind in order to heal the body after a fatal car accident where he was run over by an SUV at age 23 He was told by countless doctors that he may become paralyzed unless he had surgery to implant a rod in his spine After refusing the surgery he embarked on his own journey of healing.It is his belief that there is intelligence, an invisible consciousness, within each of us that s the giver of life Dr Dispenza made a choice to place his attention on this intelligence He believes that we spend too much time thinking about what we don t want, instead of what we do want He walked after nine weeks, was back to work at ten weeks, and running by the end of the twelfth week It has been his passion in life to marry science and spirituality it is his goal to demystify the process of using our personal energy to heal the body and mind The book is filled with data and published studies by such big names as the Mayo Clinic Countless stories and documented individual experiences You will learn about Randomized, double blinded research, about the difference between the Placebo and the Nocebo effect Dr Dispenza leaves no room for questioning, his research and data speaks for itself The book shows the reader that when we truly change our state of being, our bodies can respond to the new mind That by paying attention to our emotions on a daily basis and making the choice of which emotions serve us, and which don t, we can then take control of co creating a happier and healthier future As long as you re thinking the same thoughts, they will lead to the same choices, which cause the same behavior, which create the same expression, which produce the same emotions, which in turn drive the same thoughts I must say that I was truly mesmerized by the book I could not put it down Even though I have not read any of the authors previous titles I was very impressed by his writing skills and the way he is able to put forth a wealth of information in a way that allows any reader to fully grasp these concepts and implement them into their own lives While the concept is not new to me, I was able to incorporate additional pieces of information from reading the book which compliments the understanding I already had on this subject matter You can feel the passion this author has for spreading his work to as many people as possible And what a better way to live if we can all embrace what Dr.Dispenza has to offer within the pages of You Are The Placebo Great read, highly recommended I read self help books than I care to admit on Goodreads, but this one is a stand out Lots of fascinating anecdotes about the power of the mindand a good reminder of why I need to meditate regularly. This book has an excellent premise The placebo effect is well documented, but it s hard to self induce For instance, people who take placebo antidepressants do almost as well as those who get the real deal so what if you could create that placebo effect internally , at will Unfortunately the snake oil red alarm bells started ringing madly before I had finished the introduction Talks about his own workshops than scientific studies Check Success stories all anecdotal Check Lots of technical jargon and actual studies abused with wantonness that would make an actual practitioner of the field blush Check If you understand anything at all about quantum mechanics, this book may induce nausea The author understands vaguely that at the quantum level, probabilities become of a thing, and also that light possesses a wave particle duality However, he takes those facts and proceeds to use them to draw utterly preposterous conclusions For instance, the idea that it s your consciousness which causes quantum states to resolve is ridiculous The concept that disease is a low energy state caused by your atomic fans spinning slowly is inconceivable And the idea that your brain can do something to navigate the probability field to bring closer to your desired outcome is just absolutely implausible That isn t even ALL the bad science in this book There s MORE I think I could have tolerated all of the other poppycock in this volume if the author didn t work so hard to make it seem scientific It s just not There are plenty of nuggets of truth in here, but they are surrounded by such nonsense that it s almost not worth looking.The only really worthwhile thing the author has to say is that you can indeed self generate the placebo effect by meditating and therefore making yourself suggestible At this point it isn t surprising that he can t back this claim up with any studies, but I d expect it to perform about as well as hypnosis, faith healing, or energy healing, with which judging from the anecdotal success stories it justly shares a branch of pseudoscience.

I received a complementary copy of this book from Hay House for review purposes The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.You no doubt have heard stories of people being healed from illness by taking miracle drugs, only to find out later the drugs were placebos or harmless sugar pills How, then, were these people healed Dr Joe Dispenza explores this phenomenon in his new book, You Are the Placebo making your mind matter.Dispenza knows what you tell yourself can heal physical maladies He did it himself Having experienced a horrific biking accident at age 23 while competing in a triathlon, Dispenza s prognosis was not good With six broken vertebrae it was doubtful he would ever walk again I decided against the medical model and the expert recommendations, Dispenza recalls in the first pages of the book I believe that there s an intelligence, an invisible consciousness, within each of us that s the giver of life It supports, maintains, protects, and heals us every moment The author goes on to explain how he tapped into that intelligence to heal his back, without surgery.Similar to his first book I read, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself, Dispenza is vulnerable in telling his own story, sharing his doubts and struggles along the way Dispenza gives accounts of others, too, who healed themselves with positive mental attitude shifts Is his approach mere pie in the sky optimism Not a chance, says Dispenza None of the methods you ll read about here involve denying whatever health condition you may presently have, he writes Instead of being about rejecting reality, You Are the Placebo is about projecting what s possible when you step into a new reality Reading Dizpenza s stories opened my eyes to the power of the mind in healing the body.As in his first book, Dispenza emphasizes a daily meditation practice to get in touch with the healing intelligence within He devotes several pages to a meditation technique I found this part hard to follow I think it s difficult to learn how to meditate from a book In person instruction is much better But Dispenza s words did remind me of the value of meditation and encouraged me to continue my practice You Are the Placebo is a good read if you are going through a health crisis of your own Perhaps, through a change in attitude, your condition will improve, like the healing stories of those described in the book Dispenza concludes with a noble goal Imagine a world inhabited by billions of people, just like a school of fish, living as one where everyone is embracing similar uplifting thoughts connected to unlimited possibility, he writes You Are the Placebo inspired me to monitor my self talk carefully, so I too can recognize the unlimited possibilities not only in health, but in all areas of my life. It s all in the attitude Neuroscience, epigeneticsThe placebo I shall please , and the nocebo I shall harm effects on the body, on physiological and psychological level have been studied for years The patient responding either positively or negatively depending what they expect believe This book is fascinating because it gives both scientific and mystic examples like people eating glass and walking on coals and not getting hurt, by changing their mind and then body on a cellular level, and most interesting it talks about new scientific evidence of these cellular changes affecting and causing DNA changes in the body So you may no longer be doomed because of your genes when it comes to genetic disease for example and it all starts with a thought There are many fascinating and documented examples in this book of just how powerful belief is. Dear Atheists and skeptics please read my review.This book will teach you much on harvesting the power within your mind Whether it helps you heal your body or not, it can show you the way to inner bliss.It will also, however, try to sell you some things that you shouldn t unconsciously buy into I think Joe Dispenza is dangerously into the territory he accuses doctors of unknowingly misusing the reader is suggestible due to their faith in the book s message, and he takes advantage of this.For most of the book there s a lot of solid evidence for the things Dispenza wants to teach, and it s good if you have patience with the many analogues not all of them quite on point, either and the way he repeats every damn thing Anyway, the first and last part of the book are great When he talks about the placebo, why it works, brain waves, how to, all good stuff.And then he gets into quantum physics and the source references kind of die off Dispenza still writes in absolutes, as if what he s saying about positive emotions having higher frequency is totally proven, but in fact he s gotten himself into some philosophizing Which is fine if only he told the reader that s what he s doing.Actually, if higher emotions which I think is an incorrect term when what he wants to say is positive emotions , the very high emotions he wants you to use as you go into the low frequency theta brainwaves, have a high energy and have a high frequency that s a contradiction It can t both be high and low.That s not even the real problem The real problem is that he is bound to rub a lot of atheists the wrong way as he goes on to talk about how all of us are connected by the quantum field and waves of energy true and that this energy is God his assumption.Well, I think if science had found proof of God we d have heard about it on the news Dispenza s faith is totally fine, good for him, and he states from the beginning that he is religious Great Thank you for telling me But then don t go and make such a sneak attack on the reader, leading from facts and science into philosophy and religion without warning, and still writing as if it was the former.I m writing this in the hopes of sparing other atheists of the anger I felt when I read this part I put aside judgments and read the book with an open heart only to get religion shoved in my face, which closed my mind to the whole concept for 36 hours before I managed to nitpick the good things out of the book And it s really too bad since most of the information in this book is great and pretty solid.So ignore the preaching in this book I ve been to the theta state and I ve had the goose bumps and I didn t see God Obviously, that s not proof of God s non existence if there was a God he probably wouldn t show himself to a non believer but my POINT is that you can reach the theta state without it having to get religious.Also I don t agree with him that I have to work hard to succeed is a bad belief It s a true belief He himself works hard with his workshops to help people I think what he s trying to say is life is hard is a bad belief.The difference is subtle, but important You don t want to accidentally make yourself lazy and passive in your theta state Enjoy.
