David Hamilton

I have a first class honors degree in chemistry, specializing in biological and medicinal chemistry. After completing my PhD, I worked for 4 years in the pharmaceutical industry developing drugs for cardiovascular disease and cancer. During this time I also served as an athletics coach and manager of one of the UK’s largest athletics clubs, leading them to three successive UK finals. Upon leaving the pharmaceutical industry, I co-founded the international relief charity Spirit Aid Foundation and served as a director for 2 years.

While writing my first book, I taught chemistry and ecology (and one math class) at James Watt College of Further and Higher Education and tutored chemistry at Glasgow University.

I’m now a bestselling author of 7 books published by Hay House, and offer talks and workshops that use science to inspire, fusing science, the mind, and spiritual wisdom. I also write a regular blog on my website as well as one for the Huffington Post.

You might wonder how I got into writing on the subjects I do. Well, I was fascinated by the placebo effect, how people improve through believing they are receiving a drug. Working in drug development exposed me to the placebo effect so I began to study mind-body interactions in my spare time. I decided to leave the pharmaceutical industry after 4 years because I wanted to write and speak about the mind, our abilities, and help people to believe in themselves more. And I also wanted to write and speak about kindness and spread the idea that a small group of people with compassion and kindness in their hearts can change the world.
