Dawson Church, PhD, is a health writer and researcher who has edited or authored a number of books in the fields of health, psychology, and spirituality. He is an award-winning science writer with three best-selling books to his credit. 

The Genie in Your Genes (YourGeniusGene.com) was the first book to demonstrate that emotions drive gene expression.  

Mind to Matter, (MindToMatter.com) showed that the brain creates much of what we think of as “objective reality.” 

Bliss Brain (BlissBrain.com) demonstrates that peak mental states rapidly remodel the brain for happiness. And the one we are speaking about on the show.

Dawson has conducted dozens of clinical trials, and founded the National Institute for Integrative Healthcare to promote groundbreaking new treatments. Its largest program, the Veterans Stress Project, has offered free treatment to over 20,000 veterans with PTSD over the past decade.

Dawson shares how to apply these health and performance breakthroughs through EFT Universe, one of the largest alternative medicine sites on the web. (EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique.)
