Research scientist Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., describes a paradigm shift in the biomedical sciences. He says the new focus can not only improve health but also inspire our spirits, engage our minds, and empower enormous creativity on a global scale. We all somehow "know," he claims, that the mind/body connection is key to real health. The renaissance in Cell Biology is based on cutting-edge science supporting the effectiveness of holistic health therapies, he asserts. Genes do not express (or activate) themselves to create our physical reality; rather, thoughts and environmental factors -- under our control -- express the potential of our genes. That is, our genes are not little autonomous robots, but blueprints that may be read to make things happen.
