More About the Author

I have a PhD in Chemistry and worked in the pharmaceutical industry for 4 years, developing drugs for cardiovascular disease and cancer. During that time I was also an athletics coach and athletics team manager with one of the UK's largest athletics clubs. During my time in the pharmaceutical industry I had a fascination for the placebo effect and began to study the links between the mind and body, which ultimately culminated in me leaving the industry. Shortly afterwards, a few friends and I co-founded the international relief charity, Spirit Aid Foundation, and I served as a director for 2 years. After then I began writing my first book. During this writing time I worked as a college lecturer in chemistry and tutored chemistry in the adult education department of Glasgow University. I am now the author of several books published by Hay House, and spend most of my time giving talks, leading workshops, and writing more books.

Product Description

Review

David Hamilton has the unique gift of combining spirituality and science in a simple but powerful way. Everyone must read his work! (Health & Fitness magazine)

A thought-provoking book with a very important message for our time. (Thom Hartmann, author of The Prophet’s Way)

From the Author

The book is original – in much of what it describes, but particularly in the simple style that it is written in. I wrote it to make the areas of mind-body-spirit and mind-body science more accessible to the general public, using my background as a scientist and college lecturer to give it credibility. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I bought this book after seeing and hearing Dr David Hamilton a few weeks ago. I was blown away by what he said, by his dynamic presence and his total integrity. I'd been a bit cynical beforehand, thought it would be another "new age-y" thing, but I was so wrong! All his arguments/statements are based soundly on scientific research findings, nothing is pure theory, and it's incredibly powerful - the power of the mind is demonstrated over and over again, and it's really uplifting. Buy it! Read it! Remember it! Then go do it!

Format: Paperback
I bought this book after seeing Dr Hamilton speak at the MBS show in Manchester - he was inspiring! This book is written in a langauge that means you don't have to know anything about the quantum field to understand what Dr Hamilton is trying to tell us. He explains what the current theories about the quantum field are, how it connects to the universe - including us - and how powerful intentions are, amongst other things. If we could all understand just how much control we have over our bodies perhaps there would not be so much illness in the world! Another good book I am now reading is Deepak Chopra's 'Quantum Field healing' and I have Candace Perts 'Molecules of emotion', lined up next - can't wait!

It's the Thought that Counts: Why mind over matter really works by David Hamilton, Hay House, London, 2005, 224 ff.

Another contribution to the mind over matter philosophy
By Howard Jones

This book would provide a good introduction to Candace Pert's book on the same subject, Molecules of Emotion. Dr Pert's book is quite biochemical and might seem rather challenging for those without a fair science background. Dr Hamilton also qualified as a medical chemist and while working for a pharmaceutical company studying the effects of drugs he noticed how effective placebos were in producing the desired remedies without the sometimes drastic side-effects of pharmaceutical preparations.
To paraphrase his opening comments: the book describes how all of our thoughts and emotions, ideas, beliefs, hopes and dreams affect the condition of every part of our bodies working through neuropeptides, a subject in which Candace Pert was a pioneer. As well as directly influencing the circumstances of our own lives, these hormones indirectly influence other minds throughout the world through the coherence that is a characteristic of the world in its quantum physics interpretation. Psychologist C.J. Jung described this global mind-set as the collective unconscious.
The mind-body interaction works both ways: if you can, through focused volition, induce the mind into a state of calm or positive creativity, this will benefit the body - a good example of this is the benefit of placebo medication. But negative thoughts have the reverse nocebo effect on the body, while negative influences like `recreational' drugs or contaminants in food and water taken into the body adversely affect the mind.

This book really inspired me. It made me realise the power that lies within me and how I can release it. It has amazing scientific studies in it that completely blew me away! And Dr. David Hamilton explains it so simply that even a young child could understand it! This is a must read!! He talks about DNA, distant healing, prayer and the power of our intentions amongst other things. He also goes on to explain how each individual affects the whole world everyday and teaches how being loving and compassionate makes a bigger difference than you think. A truly inspirational and wonderful book!

This book was so good that immediately I had finished reading, I turned to the beginning and started reading it again. Throughout the book, there was so many stunning, fascinating, awe-inspiring and intriguing facts revealed that I am pretty sure I held my breath through most of it, and could not turn pages fast enough.

Chapter 1 presents fascinating data and facts which explain how the mind and body are connected; how the mind affects the body physically, and how the body can affect the mind. This chapter serves as a building block for how it's the thought that counts as you progress throughout the book. Chapter 2 brilliantly shows how the placebo effect works in our minds, and how our mind really can get involved to heal our body. Chapter 3 focuses on DNA; I personally found this revolutionary - it's a `must-read'. Chapter 4 is about the power of intention and how things can be changed by the power of touch and the power of the mind. The facts presented are extremely interesting and thought-provoking. There are 14 chapters in total, each worth a mention, but this review would get too long!

There is a phenomenal amount of research data provided to present facts and arguments throughout the book; it helps back up why mind over matter really works. The book is written in an easy to follow fashion, so you don't need to be a scientist to make sense of the facts. The book is gripping, from beginning to end. Once I read this, I knew I had so many changes to make in my way of thinking and now know how to make my little part of the world a better place through my thoughts.
