There is no longer any doubt that the way we think affects our bodies: countless scientific studies have shown this to be true.
For former pharmaceutical scientist Dr David Hamilton, the testing of new drugs highlighted how profoundly the mind and body are connected. Time and time again, the control group of patients in drug trials improved at similar rates to those who actually received the medicines. Astounded, Dr Hamilton decided to change the direction of his work to explore the relationship between the mind and the body.
This bestselling acclaimed book was first published 10 years ago. In it, Dr Hamilton explores the effect of visualization, belief and positive thinking on the body, and shows how using our imagination and mental processes can stimulate our own defences and healing systems to combat disease, pain and illness.
In this new edition, Dr Hamilton has added four new chapters to discuss the latest cutting-edge information and extraordinary new techniques. These include using imagery to stimulate the immune system - a method that can benefit cancer patients undergoing conventional treatment - effectively using the mind to speed up rehabilitation from stroke, and powerful visualization strategies to help facilitate recovery from injury and illness.
Do you truly love yourself?
How much love do you have for yourself? Not the narcissistic 'Aren't I wonderful' kind of love, but the essential regard for self that empowers you and helps you navigate through life. The type of love that enables you to feel safe and secure in who you are and inspires you to make choices that are good for your authentic self.
When scientist David Hamilton realized that his own lack of self-love was sabotaging him in hundreds of subtle ways and more than a handful of major ways, he devised an experiment using himself as the guinea pig. For more than a year David studied the latest research into brain chemistry, neuroscience, and psychotherapeutic and personal development techniques. He realized that self-love was as much about biology as psychology - that self-worth is in our genes, but trained out of us. The biological drive to seek connection with others often leads us to try to be 'someone else' to win love and approval. But the brain can be reprogrammed, and David devised 27 powerful exercises that he tested on himself and presents in the book to help you:
· Increase your own level of self-worth
· Connect powerfully with your authentic self
· Attain a greater sense of happiness and general wellbeing
· Create stronger and more real connections with others

Have you ever wondered why things happen the way they do? Whether some things are just meant to be? Or what role your free will plays in creating your destiny?
These are questions we all ask ourselves, but it's hard to get past conjecture or gut feeling to find any definitive answers. Now, in this ground-breaking book, David Hamilton looks at hard scientific evidence to bring us closer to understanding the balance between the forces of destiny and the power of free will.
Exploring new, cutting-edge scientific research into the nature of time, and drawing on fields such as quantum physics, epigenetics, solar cycles and even reports of near-death experiences, David explores how, rather than being a question of one versus the other, destiny and free will can in fact work simultaneously in his fascinating new theory, 'The Tree of Probable Life'. He shows how, ultimately, we create many of the conditions of our own lives and offers powerful yet practical principles that can bring amazing results.
How do you improve your life and also make a positive contribution to others? Harry asked this question of some of the most creative thinkers and highest achievers of our times – including Sir Richard Branson, James Caan, Gregg Braden, Larry Dossey, and Peter Buffet. In this, the film’s companion book, he has distilled their answers down to three core strategies for success: seek to understand your world, attract with a harmonious purpose, and, as Gandhi famously said, be the change you want to see in the world. This book provides the tools for change, for putting this wisdom into practice in your own life.
The Contagious Power of Thinking provides astonishing scientific evidence to show how habits, attitudes, emotions and even kindness spread rapidly outwards from person to person through personal contact. Learn the fascinating facts behind:
• how infants feel their mother's emotions
• how more than 25% of your happiness is due to the happiness of your friends
• how your brain reads the emotions of others and reproduces the feeling in you
• and how your best friend's sister's hairdresser can make you fat!
In this book, David Hamilton explores the amazing implications of this phenomenon and suggests that a small group of committed people really can change the world.
