The Biology of Belief



Language: English
Binding: Paperback
Publisher: Hay House
Genre: Science

The author, a reputed developmental biologist, uses his laborious research on the subject of Epigenetics and stem cells, to prove that the basic biology of an individual is not determined by his DNA or genes. In fact, the genetic material is influenced by several different extraneous factors, including positive or negative vibes and thoughts generated by the brain.

Exploring topics like the subconscious mind, quantum physics, cell biology, metaphysics and genetic development, The Biology Of Belief: Unleashing The Power Of Consciousness, Matter & Miracles provides a new perspective on the relatively new science of Epigenetics. Exemplifying the Placebo Effect, the author explains that the brain is capable to making healing changes to the body without any external assistance. According to him, emotions are capable of generating chemical substances called neuropeptides, which are capable of either healing or destroying. If thought processes are considered to be forms of energy, and energy is capable of contributing to physical states, then it is valid to believe that energy alone can create actual changes within the cell.

The Biology Of Belief: Unleashing The Power Of Consciousness, Matter & Miracles has revolutionized the fundamental understanding of the link between mind and matter, and the many ways in which our brain can affect our lives. The complex scientific theory is narrated in a comprehensive and lucid manner, interspersed with wit and humour, making for an engaging book.
