It has been ten years since the publication of The Biology of Belief, Bruce Lipton’s seminal book on the relationship between mind and body that changed the way we think about our lives, our health, and our planet. During that time, research in this field has grown exponentially—Lipton’s groundbreaking experiments have now been endorsed by more than a decade of rigorous scientific study.
In this greatly expanded edition, Lipton, a former medical school professor and research scientist, explores his own experiments and those of other leading-edge scientists that have unraveled in ever greater detail how truly connected the mind, body, and spirit are. It is now widely recognized that genes and DNA do not control our biology. Instead, they are controlled by signals from outside the cell, including energetic messages emanating from our thoughts.
This profoundly hopeful synthesis of the latest and best research in cell biology and quantum physics puts the power to create a healthy, joyous life back in our own hands. When we transform our conscious and subconscious thoughts, we transform our lives, and in the process help humanity evolve to a new level of understanding and peace.
Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., is an internationally recognized leader in bridging science and spirit and a leading voice in new biology. A cell biologist by training, he taught cell biology at the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine and later performed pioneering studies at Stanford University’s School of Medicine. He has been a guest speaker on hundreds of TV and radio shows as well as keynote presenter for national and international conferences.
“I read The Biology of Belief when it first came out. It was a pioneering book and gave a much needed scientific framework for the mind/body/spirit connection. Bruce’s insights and research created the basis of the epigenetic revolution that is now laying the foundation for a consciousness-based understanding of biology. We are all indebted to him.”
— Deepak Chopra, M.D., F.A.C.P., co-author with Rudolph Tanzi of Super Genes: Unlock the Astonishing Power of Your DNA for Optimum Health and Well-Being
“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, Ph.D., author of Magical Child and Evolution’s End
“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.”
— Karl H. Pribram, M.D., Ph.D., (Hon. Multi), professor emeritus, Stanford University
“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, actor and director
“Bruce Lipton offers new insights and understanding into the interface between biological organisms, the environment—and the influence of thought, perception, and subconscious awareness—on the expression of one’s body healing potential. Well-referenced explanations and examples make this book a refreshing ‘must read’ for the student of the biological, social, and health care sciences. Yet the clarity of the author’s presentation makes it an enjoyable read for a general audience.”
— Carl Cleveland III, D.C., President, Cleveland Chiropractic College
“Dr. Lipton’s revolutionary research has uncovered the missing connections between biology, psychology, and spirituality. If you want to understand the deepest mysteries of life, this is one of the most important books you will ever read.”
—Dennis Perman, D.C., co-founder, The Master’s Circle
“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.”
— Ralph Abraham, Ph.D., professor of mathematics, University of California; author of Chaos, Gaia, Eros
“Powerful! Elegant! Simple! In a style that is as accessible as it is meaningful, Dr. Bruce Lipton offers nothing less than 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.”
— Gregg Braden, best-selling author of The God Code and The Divine Matrix
“I finished reading this book with the same sense of profound respect I have when I am with Bruce Lipton—that I have been touched by a revolutionary sense of the truth. He is both a scientist and a philosopher; a scientist in that he provides us with tools to alter cultural consciousness and a philosopher because he challenges our beliefs about the very nature of our perceived reality. He is helping us create our own futures.”
— Guy F. Riekeman, D.C., President, Life University and College of Chiropractic
“The Biology of Belief is a milestone for evolving humanity. Dr. Bruce Lipton has provided, through his amazing research and in this inspiring book, 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.”
— Dr. John F. Demartini, best-selling author of Count Your Blessings and The Breakthrough Experience
“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.”
— Brian Kelly, D.C., President, New Zealand College of Chiropractic; President, Australian Spinal Research Foundation
“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 of your genes but instead have unlimited capacity to live a life overflowing with peace, happiness, and love.”
— Joseph Mercola, D.O., Founder of www.mercola.com, world’s most visited natural-health site
“This book is an absolute must read if you want to know, from a scientific viewpoint, 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.”
