Publisher's Summary

Is it possible to heal by thought alone - without drugs or surgery? The truth is that it happens more often than you might expect. In You Are the Placebo, Dr. Joe Dispenza 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 the victims of a hex or voodoo curse - or after being misdiagnosed with a fatal illness. 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 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.

Better than an antidepressant

Since putting the principles laid out in this amazing book in to my own life I have been experienced tremendous release from crippling anxiety. Although not totally free (at this stage) I can see light at the end of the tunnel. Honestly, this teaching is better than antidepressants. They just left me feeling like a zombie with no emotions. I can't believe how good I am feeling. The mind is so powerful.

Wow. I have this power in my head?

Very very interesting claims and information. The illustrating stories are very effective in aiding the information in the book. I found the science of the brain very interesting. I do not have a science/anatomy/physiology background so I have no idea if the authors claims are correct scientifically. But he sure is convincing and if his claims are correct, then the future will be a very exciting place to be, to see what ways we can influence our genetics and current states. I found the first 12 or 13 chapters very interesting but the end of the book was a little slower.

Could Have Been Perfect

You have to buy the meditations separately.

Most of the book provided case studies to back up the author's theories, which were great, very convincing. But when I finally got to the "how"... the author recommends going to his website to buy the MP3 meditations.

I also noticed they're for sale on Audible.

They're also included in the PDF that comes with the Audiobook, but they should have been read by the author as part of the cost of buying the book.

So in hindsight, would have been better to just read a review of the book instead, then spend the money on the actual guided meditations.

Dr. Joe does great work. I applaud his contribution to society, on the whole.

Disapointing

Unfortunately the audiobook does not include the guided meditations which are the heart of the program. If they were included i would give this book a 5 star rating.
