- by Bruce Lipton, Ph.D. of Santa Cruz,
- 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

New Research Reveals That Thoughts Affect Genes
- Groundbreaking scientific studies find that
genes can be turned on and off by environmental signals-including
thoughts, feelings and emotions-from outside the cell. Cellular
biologist Dr. Bruce Lipton, a former medical school professor
and research scientist, was one of the first scientists to posit
such extra-cellular control. Dr. Lipton conducted a series of
experiments that reveal that the cell membrane, the outer layer
of a cell, is the organic equivalent of a computer chip, and
the cell's equivalent of a brain. Although this view conflicts
with the widely held scientific dogma that genes control behavior,
papers by other researchers have validated his iconoclastic thinking.
- Dr. Lipton has also been a pioneer in applying
the principles of quantum physics to the field of cellular biology.
While traditional cell biology focuses on the physical molecules
that control biology, Dr. Lipton's work focuses on the mechanisms
through which energy in the form of our beliefs can affect our
biology, including our genetic code.
- In a new book to be published in May 2005,
entitled The Biology of Belief, (Mountain of Love/Elite Books,
296 pages, $25, hardcover, ISBN 0-9759914-7-7, www.BruceLipton.com),
Dr. Lipton summarizes such leading edge science and explores
its implications for our lives. Dr. Lipton shows that human beings
can control gene activity and even rewrite their genes through
their beliefs. These beliefs--true or false, positive or negative,
creative or destructive--exist not simply in our minds; they
may affect the cells of our bodies. He also shows how even our
most firmly held beliefs can be changed, which means that we
have the power to reshape our lives.
- Dr. Lipton believes that this emerging model
of cell biology will have as great an effect on our scientific
paradigm as the emergence of quantum theory had on physics. The
fact that energy impacts cells as profoundly as physical molecules
provides a scientific explanation for the efficacy of conventional
medicine, alternative therapies, and spiritual healing.
- "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

- "Bruce Lipton's delightfully-written
The Biology of Belief is a much needed antidote to the "bottom-up"
materialism of today's society. The idea that DNA encodes all
of life's development is being successfully employed in genetic
engineering. At the same time, the shortfall of this approach
is becoming evident. The Biology of Belief is a review of a quarter-century
of pioneering results in Epigenetics, heralded by The Wall Street
Science Journal in mid-2004 as an important new field. Its personal
style makes it eminently readable and enjoyable."

- "History will record The Biology of
Belief as one of the most important writings of our times. Bruce
Lipton has delivered the missing link between the understandings
of biomedicine of the past and the essentials of energetic healing
of the future. His complex insights are expressed in a readily
understandable fashion with a style that welcomes the scientist
and the non-scientist on an equal footing. For anyone interested
in health, the well-being of the species and the future of human
life. The implications of the perspectives outlined have the
potential to change the world as we know it. Bruce Lipton\'s
understandings and his concise expression of them are sheer genius."

- "Powerful! Elegant! Simple! In a style
that is as accessible as it is meaningful, Dr. Bruce Lipton offers
nothing less that the long sought-after "missing link"
between life and consciousness. In doing so, he answers the oldest
questions, and solves the deepest mysteries, of our past. I have
no doubt that The Biology of Belief will become a cornerstone
for the science of the new millennium."

- "In this paradigm-busting book, Bruce
Lipton delivers a TKO to Old Biology. With a left to Darwinian
dogma and a right to allopathic medicine, he breaks out of the
physicalist box into enlightenment on the mind/body (belief/biology)
system. Must read, much fun."

- "The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the
Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles is a milestone
for evolving humanity. What Dr. Bruce Lipton has provided through
his amazing research and this inspiring book is a new, more awakened
science of human growth and transformation. Instead of being
limited by the genetic or biological constraints that humanity
has been programmed to live by, humanity now has before it a
way of unleashing its true spiritual potential with the help
of simply transformed beliefs guided by 'the gentle and loving
hand of God.' A definite must read for those dedicated to the
mind/body movement and to the true essence of healing."

- "Finally, a compelling and easy-to-understand
explanation of how your emotions regulate your genetic expression!
You need to read this book to truly appreciate that you are not
a victim to your genes but instead have unlimited capacity to
live a life overflowing with peace, happiness and love."

- "Dr. Lipton is a genius - his breakthrough
discoveries give us tools for regaining the sovereignty over
our lives. I recommend this book to anyone who is ready and willing
to take full responsibility for themselves and the destiny of
- "This book is an absolute must read
if you want to know, from a scientific view point, that your
lifestyle is in control of your health rather than your genetics.
From a scientific viewpoint, Lipton demonstrates that the mind
is more powerful than drugs to regain our health. The information
reveals that your health is more your responsibility than just
being a victim of your genes. When I started reading this book,
I could not stop until it was finished."

- "This is a courageous and visionary
book that provides solid evidence from quantum biology to dispel
the myth of genetic determinism-and implicitly, victimhood. Dr.
Bruce Lipton brings a solid scientific mind to not only inform
but to transform and empower the reader with the realization
that our beliefs create every aspect of our personal reality.
A provocative and inspiring read!"

- "In a world of chaos, Dr. Lipton brings
clarity to mankind. His work is thought provoking, insightful
and will hopefully lead people to ask better quality questions
in their lives, and to make better decisions. One of the most
exciting books I have read, this is a "must read."
