There are several foldout pages of actual scans and recordings from previous workshop subjects which are interesting and revealing. I did see many of these in a previous workshop in Vancouver and found them amazing. There is nothing we can't achieve if we believe and persevere in a daily meditation practice. The meditations must be done with purpose and Dr. Joe Dispenza is a scientist and mentor who will show you how to create miracles in your own life.
Overall, I found it helpful to know that we are much more empowered as individuals than we have been led to believe. It raised a lot of questions for me about my own beliefs and how they have impacted my own life.
I would recommend this book to those desiring to "sit behind the steering wheel" of their own life and start guiding themselves in the direction of their dreams (it is geared more so to those individuals dealing with "health" issues - however, you can apply the methods to any area of your life).
I do not read medical journals, so I can’t make this statement with certainty; however, I would suggest that this book is likely one of the most up-to-date and exhaustive works on the Placebo Effect available today. Furthermore, for those that do not enjoy overly technical books, I would say that in spite of the fact that the nature of this book requires medical and scientific terminology to be used, this is still a very readable book.
In my own words, in very simple terms, I see the essence of the placebo effect as: mind over matter. Our minds have the power to overcome disease, depression and a vast number of negative situations that manifest in our body. Our thoughts, combined with expectation, can remedy heart disease & cancer, reduce pain, and even simulate the benefits of an actual operation. Perhaps it sounds too good to be true; however, the placebo effect has been rigorously studied throughout history and continues to fascinate/confound scientists to this day.
In order to better acquaint the reader with the workings of the Placebo Effect, Dr. Dispenza uses the first part of the book to recount numerous scientific studies that illustrate how our minds can physically change our bodies, simply through what we think and what we expect.Read more ›
