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.

"great book, but missing written docs"
my only complaint is Audible should provide the various figures and images and meditations that accompany this book.
I think the information is very valuable and true. Explained nicely. I wish it came with a PDF to be able to look at the slides mentioned.
"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.
"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.
"It's the Real Thing"
This is the key to loving and discovering your true self; a giant-sized pill that's easy to swallow.
"Excellent consideration for a new reality"
I love the scientific data here & the stories, I've had a brain scan myself & do know that the readings are interpretational so the fact that workshops were able to confirm states of mind repeatedly caught my attention for sure. It is a bit dry in spots quoting data, but it's worth hearing.
"PDF File for pictures"
download the PDF File from audible.com. it has all the figures and pictures that go with the book.
"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.
"It's what I was hoping for."
I was searching for how to erase old beliefs, create new ones and make them unshakeable. Thankfully this man learned how to do that.
"The best information about yourself!"
From the voice of the narrator to the stories and scientific data, EVERYTHING on this book brings to you great information that will change your life (as long as you understand and do the work)
No, I wanted to listen and understand every step... In fact, I have the book on paper, and now am listening to this one for the second time, while checking the tables and figures on the paper one ... I also have the Meditation 1. Just love it!
"You are the Placebo" should be mandatory in elementary and high school, as well as part of College and University's programs. It will save lives; we'll be closing prisons; hospitals will only have to attend emergencies. In other words, life would be more livable and enjoyable... love and happiness would be real and sincere. Thank you Dr. Dispenza!
Very informative and enlightening audiobook. Pdf would be helpful as there were numerous references to diagrams and transcripts.
