Hi everyone I am new to tms, but became interested as I've had a 6 month voice/throat problem which I cannot heal. Ive been very desperate during this time and tried so many things and spent so much money. I am sceptical by nature. When very desperate I read Joe Dispenzas book You are the Placebo. It read like a classic American miracle cure book. Lots of over the top stories with no proof, next to no science! I felt suspicious reading it, especially reading he has shattered his spine and was told he would never walk again, and he managed to heal it by sitting and visualising it for weeks. Of course he would have had x rays, and would still be able to get them. There is no proof of that in the book. So I went online and dug a little deeper, and found he was part of the Ramtha school of enlightenment, which is run by a woman who channels an ancient warrior. Her name is JZ knight. If you watch any video of her, you can tell instantly she is inauthentic, possibly crazy! It's a cult. She obviously makes insane amounts of money, which it seems she spends a lot of plastic surgery. It just doesn't feel right to me. And she funded the film 'what the bleep do we know', which Joe Dispenza features heavily in. I just find it m very suspicious. Joe Dispenza was a chiropractor, and when asked about his neuroscience training he mentions having been on some courses. Doesn't sound very legitimate. The 'science' in his book is apparently completely at odds with how quantum physics works and essentially made up! He runs workshops for huge amounts of money all over the world. of course he may be helping people with the Placebo effect, who knows. My concern is not about him, as I'm sure he is new age fraud of sorts. My worry is now that I'm getting into something similar with TMS! Because there are various posts on this forum praising his book and saying it's a must read for people who have read sarnos books. From what I have read and seen of Sarno,which seems to be very humble, pragmatic and down to earth, I imagine he would not want to be assocoated with Joe Dispenza or Ramtha and co. It's holding me back right now from commuting to doing the program or tms. Does anyone have thoughts on this?
