7 Forsythe, Elizabeth Asthma, Hay Fever and Other Allergies and How to Live with Them
Australia Sun Books 1977 0725102411 / 9780725102418 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
137 indexed pages. Learn how to live with your allergy or with other people's! Contents include: General treatment of allergies; Asthma; Your child and asthma; Hay fever; Eczema; Urticaria; Drugs and allergy; Pets and allergy; Allergy and the mind; Auto-immunity and allergy. It is estimated that one in every five Australians will suffer from asthma, hay fever or another allergy at some time during his or her lifetime. These allergies may range from mild childhood asthma to ‘farmer's lung’ and include unusual conditions such as allergy to detergents or household pets. About half of the close relatives of somebody with an allergy also have an allergy - but not necessarily the same one. There is still much doubt about the exact nature of allergies and conflicting medical advice may be given. The fact remains that any allergy is usually a long-lasting condition and therefore has to be lived with. Here is a book packed with practical advice both for the sufferer and for his relatives. lt includes modern treatments for allergies and also practical details of how to make life more bearable when all the medical stops have been pulled out by the doctors and relief is still not complete. There is a special chapter about children with asthma which should be of great help to many parents. There are very few doctors who specialise in allergy and it is difficult for any sufferer to get expert investigation and treatment. There is a large folk lore about some allergies and this. combined with the rarity of medical specialists, may make the patient's position precarious. This book. therefore, is an attempt to explain in simple language the problems of allergy. Above all it is a handbook to help the patient and his relatives see what positive steps can be taken to make the problem easier for all concerned.

Stanley and Sophie, Jennings, Kate
17 Jennings, Kate Stanley and Sophie
Australia Vintage 2009 1741667518 / 9781741667516 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
192 pages. A wise, wry book about two border terriers, by the keenly intelligent, prize-winning writer who lost her heart to them. A fiercely intelligent writer, an astute observer of people and her surroundings, a recent widow not ready to face her grief, an irascible Australian with no time for indulgent New Yorkers and their pampered pets, Kate Jennings falls hard. Swept off her feet and surprised by the depth of her love, Jennings's life is suddenly overtaken by Stanley and when she is seduced into getting him a companion, by the pair of them. First and foremost, Stanley and Sophie is a book about animals, but it is also about grief and grieving - for Jennings's husband, for the city after 9/11, for the world. And it is a book about the way two rivalrous, demanding, idiosyncratic, exhilarating dogs gave Jennings daily purpose and showed her the way to her own heart. Kate Jennings, a poet, essayist, and novelist, comes from the Riverina. She attended Sydney University in the late 1960s, where she gained notoriety as a feminist activist. She moved to New York City in 1979. Her novel SNAKE (1996) was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, as was MORAL HAZARD (2002), which was based on her experiences as a Wall Street speechwriter. Her work has been in contention for the Booker, IMPAC, and Los Angeles Times literary prizes. She has won the prestigious Christina Stead and Adelaide Festival prizes and been honored with the Australian Literary Society's gold medal.
