HOW YOUR MIND CAN HEAL YOUR BODY
Friday 22/03/2019 7.00PM - 8.30PM
We’re delighted to welcome Dr David Hamilton back to The Isbourne for what is always a fascinating and insightful evening.
Join David to explore the mind-body connection and find out how to harness it for health and wellness. Looking at the impact of belief on biology, David will delve into the placebo effect and reveal how meditation can have an affect not just on your brain but also on your genes. Find out how visualisation techniques have helped athletes improve their performance and helped stroke patients with rehabilitation, and how guided imagery practices have even helped to improve cancer patients’ immune systems. David will explain why the brain doesn’t distinguish between real and imaginary and undergoes change regardless, and how you yourself can benefit from this phenomenon using simple strategies.
The author of 10 books, David Hamilton has a PhD in organic chemistry and previously spent time in the pharmaceutical industry developing drugs for heart disease and cancer. Fascinated by the placebo effect, he left the industry to write and teach about how we can harness our minds and emotions for better health. He is the “Kindness Tzar’ for Psychologies Magazine and has been a guest on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch in the UK and CBS Sunday Morning in the USA.
