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 (including color brain scans) 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.

Joe Dispenza, D.C., studied biochemistry at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey, and holds a Bachelor of Science degree with an emphasis in neuroscience. He received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University in Atlanta, Georgia, graduating magna cum laude. Dr. Dispenza’s postgraduate training and continuing education has been in neurology, neuroscience, brain function and chemistry, cellular biology, memory formation, and aging and longevity. He is an invited member of Who’s Who in America, an honorary member of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, the recipient of a Clinical Proficiency Citation for clinical excellence in doctor-patient relationships from Life University, and a member of Pi Tau Delta—the international chiropractic honor society. Over the last ten years, Dr. Dispenza has lectured in more than 24 different countries, on six continents, educating people about the role and function of the human brain. He has taught thousands how to reprogram their thinking through scientifically proven neurophysiological principles. As a result, many individuals have learned to reach their specific goals and visions by eliminating self-destructive habits. His approach, taught using a very simple method, creates a bridge between true human potential and the latest scientific theories of neuroplasticity. Dr. Dispenza explains how thinking in new ways, as well as changing beliefs, can literally rewire one’s brain. His work is founded in his total conviction that within every person on this planet is the latent potential of greatness and true unlimited abilities. Dr. Dispenza’s first book, Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind, connects the subjects of thought and consciousness with the brain, mind, and body. It explores “the biology of change.” In other words, when we truly change our minds, there is physical evidence of change in the brain.

As an author of several scientific articles on the close relationship between the brain and the body, Dr. Dispenza ties information together to explain the roles these functions play in physical health and disease. His latest DVD release of Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind, which was filmed in Australia, is based on the book and looks at the ways in which the human brain can be harnessed to affect reality through the mastery of thought. In his research into spontaneous remissions, Dr. Dispenza has found similarities among people who have experienced so-called miraculous healings, showing that they have actually changed their minds, which then changed their health. One of the scientists, researchers, and teachers featured in the award-winning film What the BLEEP Do We Know!?, Dr. Dispenza has made additional guest appearances in the theatrical director’s cut as well as the extended Quantum Edition DVD set, What the BLEEP!? Down the Rabbit Hole. He also sits as an invited editorial advisor of Explore! magazine. When not traveling and writing, Dr. Dispenza is busy seeing patients at his chiropractic clinic near Olympia, Washington.
