Loosely put together by me tonight. Bruce Lipton is a cellular biologist, teacher, author, and presents a lot of his science that really aligns with Seth's teachings. I love his books, have read them several times, think he's the bee's knees. (OK, I'm not THAT old.) I get his email newsletters and he's started a series of videos through HayHouse. I will add links as I get them. Highlights are below.

Video 1: Your Genes Don't Cause Disease, Your Beliefs Do

An introduction to his research and findings, based on his research done with stem cells in the 1970s and how environment (and perception [beliefs] of environment) affect gene expression.

Video 2: Cancer Genes Are Changed Based on Beliefs

Seth:  A controversy related to that over mammograms, but one that hasn’t been nearly as well publicized, concerns “prophylactic subcutaneous mastectomy” — the process by which some women elect to have their breasts removed before they actually develop cancer in one or both of them. These women have been told that statistically they’re “high risk” prospects for cancer. NoME Session 805

Bruce 7:01 How many woman have been programmed to believe they have breast cancer genes… 7:19 for example Angelina Jolie had a double mastectomy..

Bruce 7:49 Only 50% of the women who have the BRAC1 cancer gene actually get the cancer. The significance is that science is always focused on those who get the cancer, but science has never really gone into the nature of how did that other 50% of the population with the gene did not get the cancer? To me, that's the more important part of the story, because it reveals that lifestyle and beliefs and emotions are tightly locked into the expression of cancer. 

Seth: The breast cancer suggestions associated with self-examinations have caused more cancers than any treatments have cured (most emphatically). They involve intense meditation of the body, and adverse imagery that itself affects the bodily cells. NoME Session 805

Bruce 9:38 You can actually think yourself into cancer… while a positive belief can heal you, a negative belief can actually cause disease, can actually kill you as well. …once a woman gets a diagnosis that she may have breast cancer, it profoundly changes her belief system, her emotions and her life in general…. The fear that is introduced in the concept that you may have cancer actually is a bigger promoter of cancer than the genes are…. we have been programmed that we are the victims of our genes.

"We must let go that our lives are not in our control.

"The primary source that controls your life are your beliefs.

"…we are the masters of our lives because we are the ones that can control our beliefs."

Having that double mastectomy was quite irrational. I am dipping into a book called "Surgery, The Ultimate Placebo by Ian Harris".

http://www.smh.com.au/national/surgery-the-ultimate-placebo-20160207-gmo484.html

Ian Harris is a surgeon. The book was published in 2016, so quite recent. Harris writes:
"...... prophylactic (preventive) mastectomy is a whole different question and the evidence around it is still being developed."

This is from another website:

"Surgically removing both breasts to prevent breast cancer (bilateral prophylactic mastectomy) may reduce the incidence of breast cancer and improve survival in women with high breast cancer risk, but the studies reviewed have methodological limitations."

I had a friend that had considered doing that herself. I don't know if she did, we lost touch. But both her mother and sister died of breast cancer. It was recommended to her by her doctor.

Nice article on the Harris book, I'm happy to hear that there are surgeons out there that think twice about traditional approaches. It reminded me of a study mentioned in the You Are The Placebo book involving knee surgery as a placebo. The study Dispenza cites in the book is outdated as they felt there had not been enough test subjects,

"Patients who received the placebo surgery reported decreased frequency, intensity, and duration of knee pain. They also thought that the procedure was worthwhile and would recommend it to family and friends."

But another study (maybe more than this one) has been done and the conclusion was:

"In this controlled trial involving patients with osteoarthritis of the knee, the outcomes after arthroscopic lavage or arthroscopic débridement were no better than those after a placebo procedure."

knee surgery as a placebo
A cousin of mine (a doctor) had knee replacement for arthritis. I don't think it helped her much.

I have a friend that had both knees replaced. Not at the same time. I understand the surgery has a much more difficult recovery, with questionable results, compared to recovery for hip replacement, which I don't understand since hips are so much larger and I've heard a little about the procedure (yuk). VERY invasive.

I really don't understand why we put ourselves through this type of stuff. And I wonder what ailments are trying to tell us: illness as metaphors. Seth said if the underlying problems are not dealt with, new illnesses will continue to crop up. Wow, I see some people in gradual but steady physical decline and can't help but think about that.

My cousin hated her husband but never left him because they were Roman Catholics. That was the underlying problem.

Hip replacement is easier because it is a ball-and-socket joint.
