Why Changing Your Mindset Can Change Your Health

We’re joined by Dr. David Hamilton, a leading expert on the mind body connection, about the latest research on the power of our mindset, how a change in thinking can exert physiological effects within the body and how we can harness the mind to improve our wellbeing.


We talk about:

  • Why the placebo effect is more than ‘just in the mind’
  • How can we harness the power of our mindset to create positive neurological and physiological change
  • The relationship between psychological stress and our health
  • Why kindness is so key to our health
  • How to use kindness practices to support our brain and heart health
  • The power of bringing together conventional and complementary medicine 
  • How different mind-body strategies can support different health conditions
  • The power of visualisation and nature
  • Why belief is central to the health benefits of alternative practices
