Nutrition: The Importance of a Healthy Diet, Cuthbertson, Jacqueline
6 Cuthbertson, Jacqueline Nutrition: The Importance of a Healthy Diet
Australia Elsevier 2009 0729538192 / 9780729538190 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
96 pages including references. The human body comes with many mechanisms, checks and balances, and this ensures you get adequate nutrition, as long as it is provided with enough variety. Optimal nutrition leads to good health and quality of life, whereas under-nutrition has an effect on brain development, immunity and disease. There is now such a wide variety of food available and much of this food is already prepared for you, but not all of the food available is produced with optimum nutrition in mind. This book will give you information about the food you are eating and what foods will help to keep you healthy. No matter whether you are young and healthy, or older and starting to be concerned about the way your health is going, improving your current and future health prospects just by changing what you eat is achievable. Naturally, diet alone is not sufficient to improve your health, and if you combine a healthier diet with physical activity, the benefits gained will start to be their own incentive. Jacqueline Cuthbertson has been a registered nurse/midwife for many years and has a degree in health science. She has worked in paediatrics and maternity units in country hospitals and also larger metropolitan units. Jacqueline writes for health, mother and baby magazines and health journals, and has a strong interest in preventative and natural health care, which centres around nutrition, complementary therapies, and natural childbirth.

Australia Kangaroo Island General Hospital Women's Auxilary 1997 064631310X / 9780646313108 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Good 12mo 
112 pages including b/w illustrations. This book tells the story of the hardships faced by many of the early settlers on Kangaroo Island; not only the problems associated with developing the land and surviving against overwhelming odds, but in particular it reveals how they coped with accidents and illness both before and after doctors and nurses began to arrive. It is the story of any pioneering settlement in Australia but in this case the resilience and self-reliance of the people is brought sharply into focus by their enforced isolation, an isolation imposed upon them by a treacherous strip of water and roads that were frequently impassable. More often than not emergencies had to be treated where they occurred - there was no other choice. This was the era par excellence of home remedies, and whether it was a case of a broken leg, pneumonia or the dreaded diphtheria.

Australia Nelson 1986 0170067564 / 9780170067560 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
161 indexed pages including line drawings and bibliography. Most women see paid employment as important (or necessary). Most also have domestic responsibilities that can make full-time salaried employment a major source of tension. Child care and other support services simply have not kept pace with womenís professional aspirations and needs. Working from (though not necessarily at) home can be an attractive way of solving conflict and avoiding constant and painful compromise. This book looks at why many women today choose this option, and the issues you should consider in setting up a business: legal requirements; costing and setting fees; accounting procedures; general organisation; child care services (with key addresses); domestic strategies. This information is presented in a light-hearted and readable style, supported by case histories of women who have successfully developed their own home-based working lives. ln I 918 Sheila Haydon swapped her successful career as a scientific writer in conventional employment to become a self-employed freelancer specialising in technical and scientific material... she has not looked back. Married, with two children, she is familiar with the problems of satisfying business and domestic responsibilities in a way that keeps her family happy and herself, the home-based worker, sane!

Men's health: every man's guide to good Health, Laws, Tom
13 Laws, Tom Men's health: every man's guide to good Health
Australia Elsevier 2008 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
95 pages including illustrations. lt is generally common knowledge that men are less likely to see their doctor than women. Sadly, this also means that men are less likely to have any health problems detected earlier rather than later, when it could be potentially too late. It is important that men of all ages see their doctor for health check-ups on a regular basis, and discuss ways to reduce health risks or change lifestyle behaviour that could have a negative impact on their health. lt is just as important to educate yourself on the sort of health risks that are relevant to you and what things to look out for. Tom Laws is a lecturer in the Division of Health Sciences at the University of S.A. Australia. He has researched for the Cancer Council, written international courses on menís health issues for medical graduates and has published several books for readers of menís health. Tom holds degrees in Economics, Education and Public Health, as well as being a midwife. He is currently investigating the health practices of men within dual income family, arguing that menís efforts to promote health within the family go largely unrecognised, yet they can be an important support for the working mother. In 2007, Tom has been guiding and assessing the new Nurse Practitioners in menís health for rural areas of Australia.
