Healing Fatty Liver Disease

USD $9.99 Tax Included

A Complete Health & Diet Guide Including 100 Recipes

Fatty liver disease is the most common type of liver disease seen in the world today.

Some people with fatty liver disease simply have excess fat in the liver. Although not normal, it’s not serious if it doesn’t lead to inflammation or damage. However, once there’s a build-up of fat, the liver becomes vulnerable to injury. Others have what’s called non-alcoholic steatohepatisis (NASH). NASH can lead to permanent liver damage and cirrhosis.

Both types of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) are becoming more common. Up to 20% of adults have either fatty liver or NASH. The most common causes of fatty liver disease are obesity and diabetes mellitus.

Written by experts and based on the most current information available, this indispensable guide is for anyone living with fatty liver disease. And diet plays a major role in managing the condition, so 100 specially selected recipes are also included.

Food Shock

USD $9.99USD $13.99 Tax Included

The truth about what we put on our plate … and what we can do to change it

Everyone wants to eat fresh, clean, nutrient-rich food. The more sophisticated of us want our food ethically produced as well. But the vast majority of food in Australia is mass-produced in an industrialised system and the results are not as palatable as the everyday shopper might imagine.

Our fruit and vegetables are sprayed with pesticides and herbicides, many of which have been banned overseas for years. Our beef is more often than not produced in feedlots, where thousands of cattle stand in their own faeces, regularly dosed with antibiotics to prevent the diseases that are an inevitable result of these conditions. Our chickens are ‘spin chilled’ in a dilute chlorine solution to help preserve them, and also to whiten the meat. The list goes on …

And if you combine all this with the as-yet-unknown effects of genetically modified crops, the growing water crisis, the continued sale of valuable farming land to foreign interests, and the constant struggle Australian farmers face to survive in a ‘free-market’ economy where ‘big business’ makes the profit and their overseas competitors are subsidised yet they are not, it soon becomes evident that food production in Australia faces a very uncertain future.

Food Shock investigates these issues and encourages us to ask some important questions: what are the alternatives to our current system? How do we get there? And what can we, the consumer, do to change things? The answers may surprise…

Fit for Birth and Beyond

USD $9.99USD $24.00 Tax Included

A guide for women over 35

Many older women spend months, if not years, trying for motherhood, then endure an anxious pregnancy wondering if they are eating and exercising properly. Fitness expert Suzy Clarkson has been there. Her first pregnancy at the age of 38 was relatively trouble-free, but trying to get pregnant again a few years later was very different. Following fertility treatment, she finally gave birth to her second child at the age of 45.

Qualified in physiotherapy, Suzy has now devised a practical guide to assist older women through their pregnancies, using her own experiences of motherhood to support her text. This easy-to-follow fitness programme will take you through each trimester, showing suitable exercises and suggesting how to develop healthy habits to achieve a safe outcome, a successful childbirth and a speedy recovery afterwards. The book is fully illustrated with step-by-step photographs showing the exercises in detail. The information she provides is based on the latest research, and is endorsed by leading specialists in obstetrics and fertility.

But the book is more than its exercises. Suzy is a ‘real mum’ who offers encouragement and a compassionate helping hand to all older mothers. Fit for Birth and Beyond is the guide you can trust and use with confidence.
