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 book should have contained at least one meditation. To get through the book to finally be told here are the meditations but before you can do them you must go to my website and pay for them. I'm sorry but this really makes. Me feel like it is a book playing on the very vulnerable in society who are looking to heal their lives.
The book does become rather monotonous and I found myself cutting off several times.
Just please be aware that this book has a lot of reference to pictures that as we are audible listeners we don't get. It also doesn't include any meditations either to get these you must use another credit or pay for an audio cd. Quite worrying to have got through the book to then be told to further your meditation you must go to a website and buy them. I feel so sad that this has happened and it totally ruined my enjoyment as I feel this is should be very clear from the beginning. I made my way through the dull parts with my positive mind eager to try this miracle meditation. I'm very unhappy and the whole positive message on the book has been lost for me. I guess I'm just being stupid to think that money is not the under lying thing for these people. This book would have been brilliant if as an audible listening you got free access to at least one meditation as we obviously are missing the pictures to miss out on both leaves this book very high on my list of disappointments.
This book will change for good your perspective on life and on your behaviour! Try the meditations that come separately! They work magic! ... I mean you work your magic with them :P
"great book, but missing written docs"
my only complaint is Audible should provide the various figures and images and meditations that accompany this book.
"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.
"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.
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.
it is wonderful. you feel you found the real key to positive thinking.
my only had one problem. I was waiting for the part when we will be guided through the meditation. very disappointed about this.
"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.
The stories and research were fascinating, but not being able to see the descriptive figures was frustrating.
"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.
