The Biology of Belief, although packed with scientific data, makes the ground-breaking information reasonably accessible to someone without a scientific background – quite a feat in itself. It builds on the excellent work of Candace Pert Ph.D., the author of The Molecule of Emotion. She helped us to understand that every emotion produces a neuropeptide (a chemical messenger) that influences the behaviour and the performance of the cell. This insight allows us to see we’re not merely influenced by nature but nurture too is critical to our genetic expression. In fact it helps us to understand that we are amazing pharmacies producing moment to moment complex chemical cocktails that are shaping and defining our experience and influencing our decisions and choices. This is where Bruce Lipton’s work goes further in helping us to understand how the push and pull of the environment is also shaping our perception and beliefs. If the only thing you take from this book is to realise the power you have to change the course of your reality then it will have been worth every penny. Lipton’s work shows us we are not slaves to our environments except where we choose to do nothing. This is definitely a book worth having on your shelf….
The Biology of Belief is a groundbreaking work in the field of New Biology. Author Dr. Bruce Lipton is a former medical school professor and research scientist. His experiments, and that of other leading edge scientists, have examined in great detail the processes by which cells receive information. The implications of this research radically change our understanding of life. It shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology; that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts. Dr. Lipton’s profoundly hopeful synthesis of the latest and best research in cell biology and quantum physics is being hailed as a major breakthrough showing that our bodies can be changed as we retrain our thinking.
“Bruce Lipton’s book is the definitive summary of the new biology and all it implies. It is magnificent, profound beyond words, and a delight to read. It synthesizes an encyclopedia of critical new information into a brilliant yet simple package. These pages contain a genuine revolution in thought and understanding, one so radical that it can change the world.” -Joseph Chilton Pearce author of Magical Child and Evolution’s End
