Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Are energy fields real? And if so, can they be used for healing and health? Yes, according to Schwartz (The G.O.D. Experiments), a professor of psychology, surgery, medicine, neurology and psychiatry at the University of Arizona. He tells marvelous stories of such healings and uses experiments to confirm that the human body is a bundle of energy that can be healed by another such bundle of energy. One story is of a four-year-old boy, Philip, whose heart rate dropped precipitously following surgery; a Hindu avatar, by merely touching Philip, increased his heart rate to 80 beats a minute. Through experiments with EEGs and EKGs, Schwartz says, he and others have found that our bodies are masses of biochemical energy, that such energy connects us to plants and other animals, that this energy can be harnessed for healing and that some people are in touch with their energy and use it to heal others. Schwartz's research has not appeared in peer-reviewed journals (due to their bias against such work, he says), so skeptics will want to wait for his experiments to be replicated. But those disposed to believe in the healing touch will find support for that belief. (Aug.)

Review

"Over the past three decades, an impressive body of scientific evidence has quietly emerged that points to stunning new insights into consciousness and its capacity to mediate healing. Dr. Gary Schwartz's The Energy Healing Experiments is a stellar introduction to this dazzling evidence, which will transform the very meaning of 'healing.' "
­Larry Dossey, MD, author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things

"For more than 30 years, I have known and learned from the truly creative genius of Dr. Gary Schwartz. In The Energy Healing Experiments his courageous odyssey continues with scientific rigor, penetrating insights, his characteristic twinkling humor, and true wisdom."
­Kenneth R. Pelletier, PhD, MD(hc), author of New Medicine and international bestseller Mind As Healer, Mind As Slayer

"In The Energy Healing Experiments, scientist Gary Schwartz reveals his thrilling journey to the threshold of 21st-century medicine. There we encounter the promise of new classes of therapies based on the modulation of energy and intention. While we don't know yet exactly how these new therapies work, the fact that they work is being firmly established by Schwartz and others, as reported in this riveting first-person account."
­Dean Radin, PhD, author of Entangled Minds and The Conscious Universe

"This is a lovely book. I congratulate Gary Schwartz, with William Simon, on a very readable and lucid book on the important and complex topic of energy/ information healing as distinguished from chemical/nutritional healing. It is highly recommended for all readers because it will significantly transform the public mind-set in very beneficial ways."
­William A. Tiller, PhD, author of Science and Human Transformation

"Through the able hand of a master scientist, this book is a reliable guide to the complex and sometimes perplexing engagement of mind, body, and spirit."
­Marilyn Mandala Schlitz, PhD, Vice President for Research and Education, Institute of Noetic Sciences

Format: Hardcover
I first came across Schwartz' work almost a decade ago in the Living Energy Universe. His subsequent books have been more focused, and the Energy Healing Experiments looks at the research and evidence validating the power of consciousness and intention to guide healing energies. This book provides solid evidence and explores important questions raised by both believers and skeptics. As an energy healer I know what I observe and experience with myself and clients, so I don't need convincing... but for those who lack the expanded sensory awareness to feel and perceive energy healing it's useful to have empirical findings and methodically designed experiments that confirm something is happening that can't be explained in a materialistic manner. Gary Schwartz has done well in collecting this evidence and presenting it within a thoughtful analysis and discussion of its implications. This book is practical and more scientifically-oriented than spiritually oriented even though it does bring up the spiritual and philosophical implications of energy healing. I recommend this for healers who want to have a collection of research that supports their work, as well as the general public and skeptics who wish to carefully consider the evidence regarding this phenomenon.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Count on Gary Schwartz to tackle the subjects no one else will touch.

So it is with The Energy Healing Experiments. What has been dismissed as woo-woo by the traditional psychological community, Schwartz has investigated with a series of ingenious experiments that left me eager to head down to my local Radio Shack to buy the components for my own LBT (little bitty telescope).

This book is not the most exciting piece ever written, but it may just be one of the most ground-breaking. It reenergizes the questions: Who are we? What are we? What can we actually do?

Take the time to read this book thoughtfully. It will shatter some of your illusions and lead you to question what you've "always known."

36 of 40 people found the following review helpful By Michael Lofrano on October 26, 2007
Format: Hardcover
I found this book mildly interesting. There is a lot of science in here, but frankly, it was a bit much for me. The setup for the experiments was detailed, detailed to the point of tedium. By the time I got to reading the actual results I was worn out and ready to move on to the next experiment. Unfortunately for my tastes, it was more of the same. The book really lacked any WOW factor for me, and rarely was I fascinated or intrigued. In all fairness to the author, he is a scientist through and through, and seems to be meticulous in his adherence to scientific principles of experimentation.

I am guessing this book may have real appeal for the scientist or those who reject anecdote and are in need of graphs and charts for them to be interested or persuaded. But not for me, and I am guessing not for the average reader.

Format: Hardcover
This book is an organized and convincing exploration of not just the research Schwartz has done into energy healing, but his personal journey from skepticism to advocacy. His meticulous research design, his sterling qualifications, and his equal interest in what works and what doesn't, all make him a credible commentator on the field. He walks the reader through the various explanations, from local to beyond quantum, for energy healing. He describes the energy fields that we know, like those behind cell phone technology, and how these are analogous to the signals from the hands of healers. The book also provides a handy and understandable guide to the wavelengths involved, some of which I talk about in my own book, The Genie in Your Genes: Epigenetic Medicine and the New Biology of Intention. Schwartz also gives frank insights into his own thought processes, from initial insights such as when, as a boy, he placed his hands on the antenna connections of an old TV and watched the signal change; gazing into the mind of a pioneering researcher is fascinating. While the jargon in which scientists insist on presenting their findings in peer reviewed journals is impenetrable to the lay person, this book is understandable, well-paced, and entertaining. It is destined to become a classic in this field.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Nicole Wilde on March 25, 2009
Format: Paperback
While some other reviewers found this information dry, I found it fascinating. I'm not a scientist by a long shot, but when I read about scientific experiments I want to know the details, particularly because there are so many factors involved. Especially when it comes to this type of subject matter -- and I say this as an energy healer -- I want to know that the placebo effect or other factors are not contributing to the results. I began reading this book as research for one of my own books, and ended up finishing it before I knew it. Okay, it's not for those looking for scintillating prose that reads like a novel, but the information speaks for itself and Gary Schwartz has done an excellent job of presenting it a way that the non-scientists among us can understand.

I just want to thank Dr. Gary Schwartz. Because being a MD, applying energy healing in my work, this books helps a lot to be able to explain the patients the way the therapies based on Energy Healing work.
