The Bowen Technique by Julian Baker
The Bowen Technique is a holistic therapy, originally developed in Australia. Bowen moves are a form of gentle but precise soft tissue manipulation. Energy is released by relaxing muscles and opening pathways. This handbook on the technique is illustrated with black-and-white photographs and line drawings which guide the reader through the various techniques involved. The book is intended as a reference guide whilst the student is being professionally taught as the subtleties of the technique are too complicated to learn without this instruction.

Your Body's Many Cries for Water by Dr Batmangheldj
It is beginning to be accepted that many illnesses which today plague countless millions of people worldwide spring from a simple, unrecognised cause - we don't drink enough water. This is the medical discovery that Iranian-born Dr Batmangheldj outlines in this book - and if we drank more water daily, he says, many degenerative diseases could be prevented and sometimes cured. Dr Batmanaghelidj first discovered the curative powers of water in a crowded Tehran prison where he was held during the 1979 revolution. The only medic among 3,000 terrified prisoners, in desperation he prescribed a single glass of water for an inmate dying of intense stomach pain - and the man recovered within minutes. In that moment, he asserts, "a new era in the advancement of medical science was born". After his release nearly three years later, he escaped to the United States to begin leading his own gentle, healthcare revolution from his home in Virginia. Largely ignored by the American Medical Association after presenting his findings to them nearly twenty years ago, his defiant response was to write this book.

What Doctors don't tell you by Lynne McTaggart
New edition of this highly controversial and campaigning book that reveals the truth about the pills and procedures your doctor prescribes and offers proven alternatives for diagnosing, preventing and treating many illnesses. Includes updated information on all the most recent health issues - vaccination, HRT, Viagra, IVF and more. Every year, 1.17 million British people - a population the size of Birmingham - are put in a hospital bed by a medical procedure gone wrong. And 80 per cent of most of the treatments we take for granted have never been scientifically proven to work. In this groundbreaking book, leading health campaigner Lynne McTaggart reveals the real secrets of modern medicine. Extensively revised and updated, this new edition tackles some of the most worrying health issues of recent years. For example, did you know: * Statin drugs, the new miracle cure for high cholesterol, are causing a heart failure epidemic? * SSRI drugs - now come with a black box warning about suicide risk to children * HRT, touted as the most important preventative treatment for all the diseases of female old age, actually causes heart disease, dementia, strokes and cancer? * IVF could be causing cases of breast cancer? * The statistics about illnesses prevented by vaccination are vastly overplayed? * Viagra, the great white hope of male impotence, has caused a rash of sudden deaths and is effective, at most, only half the time. What Doctors Don't Tell You gives you all the information you need to take your health into your own hands, exposing the true dangers of conventional medicine and offering up-to-the-minute, scientifically proven alternatives for diagnosing, preventing and treating many illnesses.
