Description

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.

This is a long infomercial for his workshops

I started with an open mind as I found the concept intriguing however aside from all the anecdotes I was left only with "for more information workshops, books, etc. go to..."

Super disappointed- not what I paid for

Throughout the reading of this audiobook, which is not read by the author, references are made to images, diagrams, charts, and meditation scripts that are NOT included with this title, even though it clearly states that when you purchase the audio, the reference materials are included. They are not. So you are basically paying to listen to a very long advertisement for something that is never delivered. This is a scam and a ripoff.

Great book disappointed I didn’t get the meditation narrative

The book was great but since Ive purchased the audio book only I don’t have access to the appendices that is referred to to create my own meditation that I would have gotten had I purchased the paper version.

Do the research

Book started good, had a nice story, however as it goes on and starts with genetics and neuroscience it becomes clear that author goes way behind his knowledge, it prompt me to look for what kind of doctor is Mr. Dispenza. I suspected only chiropractic would go with quackery statements of that sort...I was right unfortunately, plus got to read some negative articles about him as well...none of the miraculous statements have any physical proof and his miraculous recovery from spine injury isn't backed up with any X-ray proof. Disappointed.

Very disappointed Dr Joe did not narrate this and that I had to pay extra for the meditation. Sorry but someone who is basing his game on seminars and visibility should realize the importance of attaching his trademark voice to his text. Hugely disappointing and not recommended

Intéressant... à lire plus qu'à écouter!

Anecdotes intéressantes. Mais on n'est pas prévenu en achetant l'audio book, que l'on va devoir se dispenser de tous les diagrammes (auxquels il est fait référence pour les explications scientifiques). Quel dommage!
Par ailleurs, les "scripts" des méditations (en appendice) ne sont pas fournis (il faut aller voir sur le site).

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.

Excellent information to heal yourself!

This CD really blew my mind! Dr. Joe Dispenza is one incredible human being, and he's made his life's work to help others become whole, to be healed on every level. There is a PDF that goes along with the book. It's located in the Audible library next to the audio book.

Graphics

I was disappointed to find there was no way to see the graphics and the appendix in the audio version. Other books I have listened to have provided a link to view graphics. Especially with this one and the meditations in the appendix. You lost a little bit of credibility and wow factor when we entered the info-mercial world at the end.

Great book, but no meditations!

This is a really great book that gives you excellent insight into the why and how of your limiting beliefs. There is a major draw back to getting the audible version which is that you do not get the actual meditations because they are tables or figures in the book that are not actually read to you in the audible version.

Great info, not so great narrator

I loved this book. It's full of some amazing and inspiring stories and information. My only problem was the narrator. He read this book so slow, pausing so many times in between words that I found it very distracting and boring.I had to listen to the book at 1 and a half times faster. Overall the book is still worth listening to for the info but try not to fall asleep.

A disservice to the scientific community

This book had potential if the author hadn't abused science so tremendously and then used it to imply such worldly-focused promises. The author wields scientific theories as "facts" (some of which were antiquated even before the book was written) and then extrapolates these "facts" into entirely unrelated fields. The most egregious example is his completely improper use of quantum physical theories, which are specifically theories for sub-atom particles, to then make claims that we, as humans made up of sub-atom particles, can behave in a similar way. There is not only zero evidence in the scientific community to support the nonsensical idea that relatively massive objects, such as human beings, behave in ways similar to that of quantum objects. In fact, the very opposite is true! There are volumes and volumes of evidences to support the fact that non-sub-atomic objects (like human beings) are subject to the laws of newtonian physics, not quantum physics. Why there is a difference is still a beautiful mystery of nature and there are many theories... but that's the key, they are 1) theories and 2) explanations for non-complex, sub-atomic particles - not highly complex and relatively massive objects such as people.

There is so much support for the placebo affect in the scientific community that this book really had great potential! There are other books that address and teach about the placebo effect in much more scientific and less self-aggrandizing ways. If the author had simply drawn these scientific theories as analogies or as interesting things to think about, I would have enjoyed the book; but the arrogance and ignorance of claiming fact from theory and drawing completely incorrect conclusions and relations is a disservice to the scientific community. The complete misunderstanding for terms such as "quantum potential" and the sloppy misuse of highly technical terminology is only serving to spread incorrect and damaging pseudo-science. If you come away from this booking thinking that you understand quantum physics, you are wrong... because nobody understands quantum physics yet - but some of the few things we do understand are the very things he attempts to use so blatantly incorrectly as "fact".

The other difficulty I have with this book is that it implies that a person can be wildly successful in material ways by simply believing it can happen and the author refers to beautiful practices such as meditation as a way to make this happen. This is sad because meditation and similar practices are intended to help individuals find peace and happiness from within, despite the situation around them. These practices were never intended to be used in a way to manipulate the external world to bring wealth, fame, or any other worldly success to an individual. If one is interested in exploring some of the benefits of meditation, I strongly recommend staying away from books such as this, which focus on desiring external transformations, and perhaps instead read works such as Unteathered Soul (Michael Singer) which focuses on one's desire to transform internally.

An infomercial in book form

If you are wanting to learn about the workshops that Dr Dispenza offers then maybe this book is for you. If you are looking to have his theories explained in depth. Not so much.
