Bruce Lipton is a former medical school professor and research scientist. His experiments, and that of other leading edge scientists, have examined in great detail the processes by which cells receive information. The implications of this research radically change our understanding of life. It shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology; that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts. Dr. Lipton’s profoundly hopeful synthesis of the latest and best research in cell biology and quantum physics is being hailed as a major breakthrough showing that our bodies can be changed as we retrain our thinking. He is regarded as one of the leading voices of the new biology. Dr Lipton’s work summarizing his findings in his book, entitled The Biology of Belief. His new book, Spontaneous Evolution, Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There From Here.

After a decade of working as an environmental educator & health consultant in both government and nonprofit sectors, and managing several environmental projects, I started to see the link between air, water and food contaminated with pesticide, with cancer and chronic illness. I came to realize that people have the power to change and heal themselves, so although I couldn’t get the governments and the industries to stop polluting, I could at least educate people on how to stop polluting themselves. And this is the first step to healing yourself from cancer and chronic disease.

Dr. Divi Chandna graduated from family medicine in 1995. After just a few years of practice she started to question the origin of disease. Very quickly after that questioning – she got sick herself. Dr. Divi developed chronic pain, depression, food allergies and more. Her journey back to wellness had her step outside of the medical model and led her to the work she does now. She realized there as a direct connection between her thoughts, emotions and pain. It took time, but as soon as she would move through the emotions of guilt and anger, her pain released. As she allowed herself to move through fear and think and process differently, her gut issues lifted. Dr. Divi went on to train as a professional intuitive coach. Now, she works as an intuitive Mind Body Spirit Coach. She uses intuition and her understanding in neuroscience to help people shift their thoughts and emotions. As her clients do this work, they are able to shift emotionally and truly heal. Dr. Divi also teaches people how to do what she does.
