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.

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
12 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.

It contains descriptions and illustrations of the sixty woody species of Australian plants commonly reaching tree height, or more precisely four metres, growing naturally within the Territory. As the coastal vegetation of the Jervis Bay region is quite different from that of the inland part of the Territory and would add greatly to the complexity of this guide, it has not been included; and as an additional aid to a compact guide, the descriptions have been kept as short as possible. References to further reading are included for those wanting more information.

Heart of Forgiveness: A Practical Path to Healing, Bastis, Madeline Ko-I
17 Bastis, Madeline Ko-I Heart of Forgiveness: A Practical Path to Healing
U.S.A. Red Wheel/ Weiser 2003 1590030273 / 9781590030271 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
109 pages. Madeline Ko-i Bastis is a Buddhist chaplain. She works with cancer, AIDS, psychiatric, and Alzheimer's patients, with battered women, caregivers, inmates, with people with addictions, as well as so-called normal people. In her work she has found that the most difficult thing for people to do is to grant forgiveness. Some people cannot ask for forgiveness, others cannot forgive one another. And some don't realize how harsh they are to themselves when they cannot forgive the one person they have to live with daily - themselves. Heart of Forgiveness helps readers reflect on what forgiveness really means and how it can heal their lives and relationships. Ko-i Bastis explores the difficult emotions that keep us from forgiving and offers tools to help us overcome them. The three parts of Heart of Forgiveness mirror the phrases of the Buddhist Forgiveness practice: For all the harm I have done to others, knowingly or unknowingly, forgive me. For all the harm others have done to me, knowingly or unknowingly, I forgive you as much as I can. For all the harm I have done myself, knowingly or unknowingly, I forgive myself. Each section includes stories of forgiveness, a meditation, guided imagery, and other exercises to help understand forgiveness and letting go.

74 pages including b/w illustrations. Whilst this book reveals some of the secrets of the super athlete, in its entirety it will assist many others to realize their individual goals of fitness health happiness and longevity. My understanding of the advanced procedures of health and ?tness began at the age of 13 when I suffered from an illness that put me into a coma for several days. Instead of studying for school grades as a teenager, I found myself studying for survival, using books written by exceptional athletes, doctors who accepted the principals of both eastern and western medicine and that unbelievable minority of people who have healed themselves of disease such as cancer. The anguish that my personal crisis caused, changed my whole outlook on life, and exposed principles of the connection between mind and body that allowed me to understand some of our mysteries of life. My learning process not only led me to success over illness, but also exposed secrets that led to super ?tness and strength, enabling me to enjoy national success as an athlete (the author). Contents: My Personal Trauma; My First Discovery (Oxygen); My Second Discovery (Emotions); My Third Discovery (Hormones); Emotions, Breathing and Visualisation; The Importance of Oxygen Reserves; The Hormone that Destroys Our Breathing; The Three Lung Actions; The Effects of gisualisation; Mind Requests; Visualisation to Assist Triathletes; Goal Setting and the Hormonal Effect; Endorphins and Hypnosis; The Hormone that slows us down and encourages us to put on weight; The Gradual increase of hormonal response; The Importance of Sensitivity; The Wrist Pulse Variation Test; Our Natural Make-up; The Unrealised Healing Potential of Blood Flow Exercising; The Nature Within Us; Understanding Digestion and Energy; The Importance of Natural Glucose and Insulin; Hormones and Energy; Alternative Exercising to Assist the Triathlete; The Best Method of Breathing During Weight Training; The Lung Efficiency Exercise.
