Snake-oil Stuff: "Quantum Healing" by Deepak Chopra


Why does anyone (anyone!) believe this rubbish? It's so blatantly stupid. There's no science in any of this (he 'claims' things; he's 'probably' read a book or two at the most), but cops out by saying what he's doing is 'philosophy'. Why not run his idea by a few real philosophers and see what they have to say?

He's a con. 150 years ago he'd be touring the backwoods selling bogus elixir

This only gets 1 star because zero isn't allowed.

I can only assume that this has over 4 stars on average because the typical person who seeks this book out is already prone to believing the nonsense within.

I am a scientist, with a PhD in Materials Science and plenty of quantum mechanics in my background (though obviously, I don't know it anywhere near as well as a dedicated physicist in the area

Deepak Chopra is an endocrinologist who starts doubting the supremacy of the western approach to medicine. That doesn’t mean he denies his training altogether. But he cannot forget his Indian roots, either. In fact, when he finds out that mind and body are able to cure a person if they work together, or kill her if they work against each other, he returns to the traditional Indian medical approach that they call Ayurveda.

Ayurveda means “the knowledge for long life” in Sanskrit. Because it com

A super book that explains the science behind the seemingly magical ability to heal yourself with your mind, your thoughts and feelings. Truly insprirational reading. If you're into science, spirituality, or both, you will very much enjoy this book. If you're struggling with a desease, this line of thought is definately worth a try. Lots of case studies inclulded. ...more

Deepak Chopra’s book, long in the tooth now as a passing fad – is interesting for me in what it says about human psychology, especially Americans. And that is, a desperate need to animate their spiritual selves now vacated in a high tech, capitalistic world that increasingly dominates them. Chopra fills that need with a New Age mix of Eastern mysticism, pseudo-science, junk science, and outright snake oil. He uses enough (far too much) science jargon to make those who live in our “science enviro ...more

This was a great book. It really is fascinating how our bodies naturally rejuvenate and heal. We have a new liver every 6 weeks; how neat is that! Our minds are such powerful tools and I believe influence our bodies... there is a disconnection and connection between the two and the way we think about things, like illness, the more we will see it in our lives. It's like the person who wakes up in the morning and stubs their toe, then spills their morning coffee, and the person starts focusing on ...more

Deepak Chopra is an endocrinologist, who respectfully questions western medicine, how disconnected it is: mind from body. At the same time, he reaches back to his Indian roots, bringing traditional Hindu system of medicine called Ayurveda, which balances mind and body. He presents his cases in detail, showing how damaging it can be when doctors lack compassion towards their patients. How patients’ mind can be affected and causing further damage to the body. It is a very small percentage of peopl ...more

I'll preface this review by telling you that I have a bone spur on my left heel, and related plantar fasciitis, and I've had pain when walking/running for the better part of this last year. I have tried stretching, and some very expensive prescription orthotic inserts. I have been very frustrated with how slow the healing process has been. My husband loaned me this book as a possible alternative solution.

Deepak Chopra may be commonly known as more of a "woo woo" spiritual author, but he is also

Inspirational, mind expanding and really interesting look at the boundary between the body and the mind. For anyone who has experienced the limitations of modern medicine, this is a great exploration of what where medicine finishes and the power of spirituality and the quantum universe picks up.

Great guide to began to know the signals of your Mind and Body.
Roni Matar
Summarized in one sentence: Happy mind equals happy body. When you are in a state of bliss you have a higher probability that your body will deal will disease in a better way.

Although Chopra has a lot of valid insights, there is a large amount of vagueness in the book with little if any actionable points that the reader can follow through to achieve Quantum Healing.

I've been whittling away at this book for some time, ever since I ran into it at a library sale and felt inspired by the compelling title. Quantum Healing! Wow, I thought. What's that? What surprised me is that the author, Deepak Chopra, is an M.D. Every time I had ever heard his name uttered, it was in connection with yoga and meditation, two words whose concepts I barely understood before reading this book. I had no idea he came from the double perspective of his Western medicine training as a ...more

Great read. I love Deepak. He gives great insight to our own personal healing power. We are so influenced by GPs and specialist and forget that we hold a lot of the healing capabilities from within. If you are suffering from any disease I highly suggest this book. Enjoy

Recommends it for: Patients
n this book, Deepak Chopra narrates about the killer disease "Cancer/Tumor" and how it affects the people's perception about the world once they are caught by this deadly disease. He aims at shifting the mind of the reader, so they can believe that any chronic illness in their body can be healed. Completely, without traces.

He narrates about the peculiar cases, where some patients had banished this deadly disease from their body miraculously. He initiates this powerful belief in the reader's mind

Fascinating. As the title implies, Dr. Chopra explores the frontiers of the mind/body with the knowledge and limitations of today's medical world and the world of physics, as well as the ancient knowledge of Ayurveda. He explores what is known and not known of people who have spontaneously healed from their terminal ailments. He does this with simplicity, clarity and sincerity. If I wasn't convinced of the many benefits of meditation, I am now.

Dr. Chopra states that much of his time is spent ta

This was my first experience reading a book of Deepak Chopra's and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. I appreciate that Chopra has a medical background in endocrinology as well as Ayruveda. It made for a very interesting interplay between Eastern and Western approaches to medicine and attempting to find a balance between the two. What I liked most was that there was never an attempt to discredit one field of medicine, but rather a focus on using both as a means of rounding each other out. Th ...more

Everybody needs to learn about Quantum Physics. It should be taught in high school along with chemistry and biology. Deepak Chopra is a wonderful teacher of our times. In simple language he explains how scientifically we are all One. He brings proves personal power with physical facts. Although his works would fall into the woo woo shelf, he would be the most down to earth author on the shelf.

This book is totally mind expanding.  It goes into the quantum physics of healing.  Ultimately Deepak means that the more bliss we are able to experience on a daily basis, the more we increase our health and our chances for doing "the quantum leap" ie going from being ill into complete health.  It is the most inspirational and motivational book on why it is so important for us all to meditate on a regular basis.  Fascinating read. ...more

I gave this book 5 stars because of my curiosity to explore "Quantum Physics" and its relationship with human body. Deepak Chopra is a good writer but unfortunately he fails to convey his message to his audience. I think this book would have been well understood if 'Quantum Theory' had practical grounds. The mystery attached to neuropeptides remains shrouded. A deep research put forwarding consolidated facts and proofs is required. Otherwise, its pure hypothesis. ...more

One of the first and best books about the mind-body connection and how our health and well-being are inextricably tied to our thoughts, emotions and beliefs. These concepts are not just critical for those struggling with serious illness. They help all of us understand how to live healthy, happy, energetic lives.
