The Biology of Belief
Unleashing the Power of Consciousness,
Matter and Miracles
by Bruce Lipton, Ph.D. of Santa Cruz, California
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.

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,, 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 the world."

"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."
Joseph Mercola, O.D.
Founder of the world's most visited natural health web site.
"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 our planet."
LeVar Burton
"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!"
