Book Review: The Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton PhD

The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles from Bruce Lipton, PhD, maintains that we can change our bodies by changing the way we think. The notion that we are not controlled by our DNA, but that our own thoughts control our health, and subsequently the way DNA is expressed, is great reading and provides new horizons for managing health, for those willing to think freely.

Lipton had a profound turnaround in his professional career as a medical school professor and research scientist when he came to realize that how we think controls our DNA. He views our cellular structure as a mini universe, and challenges the notion that we have no control over our own health. Bruce Lipton discusses how he came to his conclusions in depth, but also in a way that is easily digested. The Biology of Belief is easy to understand, even for the most scientifically challenged individual.

At first, Lipton was perceived as totally unconventional, but he moved forward, and he is now way ahead of the pack. His tenets are being explored by other researchers, and he has become the recipient of the 2009 Goi Peace Award. The Biology of Belief challenges conventional medicine by looking at the mind-body connection that is now the subject of much research.

Lipton uses the premise of epigenetics, a blossoming area of research, to explain our inner workings, calling it "the new science of self-empowerment" – something we all crave, and that also produces an instant attraction for free thinking individuals. In his ongoing work, he encourages us to “think beyond your genes”.

Bruce Lipton has a story to tell, and expertise that he is willing to share, for those willing to listen - the Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter, & Miracles looks at the power of the mind, and how our own thinking can control our cell membranes producing empowering changes toward better health. The idea is not new, but with Lipton’s help and scientific expertise, the whole “mind over matter” theory becomes quite palatable. Visit Bruce Lipton’s website for a whole lot more.
