The Healing Power of Food by Edited by Laura Price (£10.50)Publisher: Reader's Digest — 1997Binding: Hardback First Edition. [ISBN: 0276422627]Condition: Very Good. Leans slightly. Boards slightly sunned at the margins. Text bright and tight. A nice copy.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs and diagrams. From the cover: “ore and more people today are choosing to take greater responsibility for their own health rather .than relying on the doctor to step in with a cure when something goes wrong. We now recognise that we can influence our health by making an improvement in lifestyle — a better diet, more exercise and reduced stress. People are also becoming increasingly aware that there are other healing methods — some new, others very ancient — that can help to prevent illness or be used as a complement to orthodox medicine. The series Health and Healing the Natural Way will help you to make your own health choices by giving you clear, comprehensive, straightforward and encouraging information and advice about methods of improving your health. The series explains the many different natural therapies now available — aromatherapy, herbalism, acupressure and many others — and the circumstances in which they may be of benefit when used in conjunction with conventional medicine.

The approach of the healing power of food is to emphasise the direct medicinal effects that can be achieved through food. It explains the general principles of healthy eating, how diet relates to disease and exactly how the active components of food work. The main thrust of the book, however, is to give clear, practical guidelines on what and how to eat to relieve a wide variety of health problems. the healing power of food reflects the growing trend to bring alternative therapies and mainstream medicine together. The book is not about challenging orthodox medical practice, rather the emphasis is on balance. To this end the benefits of individual foods are presented within the context of a healthy, complete and balanced diet.”

Dieting Makes You Fat: A Guide to Energy, Fitness and Health by Geoffrey Cannon; Hetty Einzig; (£9.50)Publisher: Century — 1983Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 071260118X]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges. Leans. Top edge of the text block tanned. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “Most of us have been taught to believe that self-denial is the key to health, fitness and a firm figure; and that the bathroom scales are the judge of how successfully we manage it. The authors show that this is not simply wrong, but harmful.

They explain that the key is not how much you eat, but how quickly your body converts food to energy — the metabolic rate. The best way to lose excess fat is to speed up the metabolism by taking exercise; dieting slows metabolism and positively encourages the body to retain its excess flab. Hence the big eaters who stay thin and the little eaters who stay fat — as well as the many sufferers whose diets have led to anorexia, bingeing or hatred of their own bodies.

The first part of this book reveals the humbug and false promises of the diet industry. It goes on to make positive suggestions for a lifestyle based on sound science and commonsense, with particular reference to the nutritive value of different foods and the effects of different forms of exercise on the bodies of men and women. Guidelines that every able-bodied person can follow are included.

Dieting Makes You Fat is a catchy title behind which lies an important message properly supported by biomedical research and leading to some far-reaching conclusions about the way we live and eat. It is a revolutionary book which could and should change our lives.”

Practical Nursing and Anatomy for Pupil Nurses by Jane Forrest (£9.50)Publisher: Edward Arnold — 1968Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with wear and loss at the spine ends and corners, several short closed tears.Description: 1st Reprint. [First: 1966] From the flap: “The aim of this book is to provide a good foundation of basic facts which will guide the pupil and enrolled nurse to a wider knowledge and understanding of the care of the patient. Anatomy and Physiology is not treated as a separate, rather dull subject, but is shown to be closely allied to the diseases and treatments which the nurse encounters daily on the wards. The information contained in the book is presented as simply as possible with explanations of technical terminology given where necessary. A large number of cross references are given as a further aid to study. Nurses should be encouraged to get into the habit of using them, since they establish links which connect one fact with another until a more complete picture of the subject is obtained. “Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾".
