The five side effects of kindness


David


David R. Hamilton
has a PhD in organic chemistry and spent four years in the pharmaceutical industry developing drugs for cardiovascular disease and cancer. Inspired by the placebo effect, he left the industry to write books and educate people on how they can harness their minds and emotions to improve their health.

He's written nine books including three bestsellers: “Your Mind Can Heal Your body,” “I Heart Me” and his most recent book “The Five Side Effects of Kindness” which was published in 2017.



Kindness is more important than ever in a world increasingly divisive. It’s just too easy to anonymously hurl insults through the Internet or from cars.  It’s too easy to see the world as “them” versus “us” and then throw harsh words or even stones at anyone who is different or has opinions unlike our own.  That’s why messages like Hamilton’s are so important today.

The introduction to Hamilton’s book on Amazon states: “Scientific evidence has proven that kindness changes the brain, impacts the heart and immune system, is an antidote to depression and even slows the aging process.  We’re actually genetically wired to be kind. In ‘The Five Side Effects of Kindness,’ David Hamilton shows that the effects of kindness are felt daily throughout our nervous system. When we’re kind we feel happier and our bodies are healthiest.”

Hamilton personally says kindness “builds relationships and thus strengthens society.  So, by extension, it ensures our protection and survival. . . In this modern interconnected world, there are no isolated acts of kindness.  Kindness creates ripples in the fabric of human relationships and human society.  These ripples impact the hearts and minds of other people, who in turn create ripples of their own.  Each seemingly isolated act of kindness matters more than we think.”
