Biology, stem-cell research, and spirituality are important parts of our daily lives, even if we are not cognizant about the relationship they play in our lives and I feel that there are many among us that are on a quest of sorts, to learn more about this connection, how it impacts our lives, and the role it plays as well.
This has always been something that I have had an interest in, and recently became aware of the works of an American author and scientist, Bruce Lipton, through a colleague and very close friend of mine, and have starting to read his material. I feel these works and author are quite important and equally important to share. I think that it worth everyone’s time to read his articles and books, and so get a better understand on how your genes and DNA are impacted by your beliefs. I feel that this is a topic whose time has come and we all must take the time to learn more about this relationship and continue to grow from it.
I hope that my introduction of Mr. Lipton assists with getting started on this path or furthering the connection that you may have already started or just started to become aware of.
Bruce Harold Lipton, is an American developmental biologist who is best known for promoting the idea that genes and DNA can be manipulated by a person’s beliefs.
In 1966, Lipton received a B.A. in biology from the C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University and a PhD in developmental biology from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville in 1971, before joining the Department of Anatomy at the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine in 1973 where he taught anatomy, then joining the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine as professor of anatomy. From 1987 to 1992, he was involved in research at Penn State University and the Stanford University Medical Center. Since 1993, Dr. Lipton has been teaching in non-tenure positions at different universities. His publications consist mainly of research on the development of muscle cells.
Lipton has appeared as a guest on several radio shows, as well as The Elaine Smitha Show and the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, and was featured in the 2009 documentary Kymatica, discussing the concepts of love and fear in their relation to the body. He has been a speaker at the Institute of Noetic Sciences 13th international conference, the Spiritual Science Fellowship International Conference, and various other conventions (both national and international).
Dr. Lipton is an internationally recognized leader in bridging science and the spirit. Stem cell biologist and best-selling author of “The Biology of Belief” and recipient of the 2009 Goi Peace Award, he has been a guest speaker on numerous TV and radio shows.
Dr. Lipton began his illustrious scientific career as a cell biologist. His research on muscular dystrophy and studies that employ cloned human stem cells, focusing upon molecular mechanisms that control cell behavior. Dr. Lipton and a colleague (Dr. Ed Schultz) developed an experimental tissue transplantation technique and has been published in the journal Science that was subsequently employed as a novel form of human genetic engineering.
By 1982, Dr. Lipton had begun to examine the principles of quantum physics and how they might be integrated into his understanding of the cell’s information processing systems. He then was able to produce breakthrough studies on the cell membrane, which revealed that this outer layer of the cell was an organic homologue of a computer chip, our cell’s equivalent of a brain. The research that he did at Stanford University’s School of Medicine (1987-1992) has revealed that this environment, operating through the membrane, controlled the behavior and physiology of the cell, turning the genes on and off. The discoveries he made, ran counter to the established scientific view that life is controlled by the genes, presaged today’s most important fields of study, the science of epigenetics. Two major scientific publications that have been derived from studies have defined the molecular pathways that connect the mind and body. I have found that there have been subsequent papers by other researchers validating Dr. Lipton’s concepts and ideas.
I have also found that Dr. Lipton’s novel scientific approach transformed his personal life as well. His deepened understanding of cell biology highlighted the mechanisms by which the mind control bodily functions, and implied the existence of an immortal spirit. He then applied this science to his personal biology, hence discovering that his physical well-being improved, and the quality and character of his daily life was greatly enhanced. Something that would (and does) greatly improve all of humanity’s life.
Dr. Lipton has taken his award-winning medical school lectures to the public and is a sought after keynote speaker and workshop presenter. He lectures to conventional as well as complementary medical professionals and to lay (non-medical) audiences about cutting edge science and how it dovetails with mind-body medicine and spiritual principles. He is heartened by anecdotal reports from hundreds that have attended his lectures who have improved their spiritual, physical and mental well-being just by applying the principles he discusses in his lectures. Dr. Lipton is highly regarded as one of the leading voices of this new biology. His book “The Biology of Belief” summarizes his works on this matter. His latest book “Spontaneous Evolution, Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There From Here, is available now at a book store near you, as well as the other fascinating books he has written.
