Product Details


“We sometimes call things ’woo-woo’ not because we’re experts on those subjects, but because we’re not experts and we haven’t dived into all the available science and research. In this book, David has done a stellar job in gathering the science and philosophy of a range of seemingly woo-woo subjects and shown that they are, in fact, ‘true-woo’.” - Vex King, #1 Sunday Times bestselling author of Good Vibes, Good Life

“Dr. David Hamilton is one of the leading experts in the field of the mind‑body connection. As a scientist, he bridges real science with human potential in order to prove to you how powerful you really are. This book will change your mind.” - Dr. Joe DispenzaNew York Times best‑selling author of You Are the Placebo

“Science has historically looked askance when faced with traditional healing systems. We now realize that alternative therapies and Western methods can be used together to reach a state of lasting wellness.” - Deepak Chopra

Why Woo‑Woo Works is one of the clearest and most accurate expositions of alternative mind‑body practices that I’ve had the pleasure to read. Hamilton also offers explanations that help to demystify the woo‑woo taboo. A delightful and inspiring read.” - Dean Radin, Ph.D., Chief Scientist, Institute of Noetic Sciences

“David is an incredibly inspirational man who I’m proud to call a friend. His work has changed the lives of many and he stands out because he always strives to explore and answer the difficult questions using evidence and science, which in a world full of misinformation, is needed. A truly wonderful and fascinating book. A must‑read!” - Dr. Punam Krishan, GP, writer, and broadcaster

“David’s emotionally moving and scientifically enlightening book delves deep into the big questions of spirituality and science. Read this book to open your mind and heart to the tremendous power of alternative therapies.” - Dr. NNilesh Satguru, GP and high‑performance coach

“Reading this book is like David giving us a scientific toy arm to finally be able to scratch that itch on our back in that unreachable spot for those of us who have resonated with woo‑woo since day one, but haven’t had the evidence‑based research compiled all in one place to back up what we feel and have experienced to be true. If medical students and sceptics everywhere were required to read this book, the world would be a more harmonious and healthy place.” - Kelly Noonan Gores, director and executive producer of the HEAL documentary

“Dr. David Hamilton is uniquely placed to give compassionate science‑backed perspectives on the role that the mind plays in helping to heal the body. In this book, David delves into what we know, whilst making space for what we don’t. The world needs more authors – and scientists – like David Hamilton.” - Dr. Gemma Newman, GP and author of The Plant Power Doctor

‘As a conscious filmmaker and meditation teacher, I find David’s book highly valuable for those scientific nuggets that back up what we know intuitively to be true. He helps us all bridge the gap from woo‑woo to, yes, you too!” - Adam Schomer, producer of HEAL and The Road to Dharma
