In this episode of The HEAL Podcast, I sit down with renowned scientist and author Dr. David Hamilton to discuss his book, Why Woo Woo Works. In the conversation, Dr. Hamilton explains how holistic therapies, the placebo effect and the incredible healing power of kindness can be understood through modern science.
Dr. Hamilton has a PhD in organic chemistry and is a former research chemist with experience in developing drugs for cardiovascular disease and cancer within the pharmaceutical industry. After some time in R&D, however, he chose to leave the industry and devote himself to writing books and educating people on how they can use their minds and emotions to improve their mental and physical health.
Together we delve deep into the scientific basis for these holistic practices, exploring concepts such as neuroplasticity, quantum physics, epigenetics and more. By examining evidence from numerous different fields of study, it becomes apparent that there is much more behind these therapeutic approaches than what meets the eye – an impressive amount of “true woo”!
This thought-provoking conversation presents an intriguing look at how modern medicine is being complemented by ancient wisdom to create a powerful combination of knowledge that can help us live happier and healthier lives.
