Book Study Week 3~ The Placebo effect in the Body

This week’s topic is “The Placebo Effect in the Body.”

We have been told for decades to believe in Genetic Determinism. The concept being, that if we inherited genes for cancer, heart disease, etc.. we have no control over it…. We assume we are victims of our biology and that our genes have the ultimate power over our health and wellness.

Dr Joe explains that these are dated beliefs, built on yesterdays news! Not everyone who inherits genes for Alzheimer’s or breast cancer end up getting these diseases. Genes are not eggs that will eventually hatch! Having the gene is not as important as what we are doing that may signal genes to turn on or off!
