We had no option but to follow a course of alternative therapies which eventually led us to a World We had not known existed. cancer is a strict teacher, but the lessons are there for us all. We leamed to become more caring, more accepting and more loving human beings. We learned the arts of meditation, herbalism, homeopathy and simple living. Finally, just before Christmas 1999, we heard the words we had longed to hear: ‘no clinical evidence’.

It is drawn from the works of a great number of researchers, doctors, scientists, health care professionals and ordinary people who simply wanted to understand.

Australia Australian Academy of Science 1981 0858470950 / 9780858470958 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
xvi + 143 pages. Research into lead and the Australian health environment brought some unexpected answers: Some evidence suggested lead is added in some way to food and beverages during processing, some children ingest lead from dust or dirt, from lead paint on old houses, lead toys or dust on clothes of family members who work in the lead industry - Australia IS one ‘of the world's largest producers of lead. There is, however, no clear-cut level of lead concentration in blood above which adverse effects are observed. While the researchers said their findings on humans did not give rise to grave concern, their conclusion was that certain limited populations are at risk and require identification. Lead from motor exhausts does not produce signs and symptoms of clinical lead poisoning. But, reports from overseas and Australia suggest adverse effects from this may be less obvious, especially on the mental and behavioural developments of children.

What's up Mate?, Bales, Helen
8 Bales, Helen What's up Mate?
Australia Hodder & Stoughton 1987 0340372036 / 9780340372036 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
32 pages including colour illustrations. During the eighteen months my son Anthony was under treatment for cancer, we all - doctors, nurses and family - developed the habit of greeting him with "What's up, mate?". We didn't expect a reply but more often than not we did get a smile. Perhaps in the beginning, the question was too difficult for a six-year-old child to answer. During the long period of struggling to communicate and cope, Anthony himself became aware of our problem. When I decided to try to put it all down on paper, the idea was instantly endorsed "The kids need it, Mum," said Anthony. So do parents, friends, relatives and teachers. I hope that "What's Up Mate?" will make it just a little easier to cope in a very difficult situation.

93 pages. Offers a concise and readable summary of the essence of psychology- what it is, how it came about, and how it relates to the Christian world-view of the Bible. She also scrutinises the deeper assumptions of psychology, and asks how a Christian view of humanity and he mind relates to mental illness. As The New Millennium Dawns, the psychologist has replaced the clergyman as the dispenser of wisdom and peace in our confused and troubled world. When we are depressed or anxious or our marriages are in trouble, it is to psychology that we routinely turn for insight and therapy. It is hard to believe that psychology hardly existed a century ago, and that its prominent place in modern life has only come about in the last generation. In this short book, Dr Kirsten Birkett offers a concise and readable summary of the essence of psychology- what it is, how it came about, and how it relates to the Christian world-view of the Bible. Dr Birkett examines the various kinds of psychological therapies, and how these are based on different views of how the mind works. She also scrutinises the deeper assumptions of psychology, and asks how a Christian view of humanity and he mind relates to mental illness. This penetrating analysis of the insights and claims of psychology makes for fascinating reading. It will be of particular interest to those who struggle with their own mental health, as well as those who support them.
