You Can Conquer Cancer, Ian Gawler

This book was a revolutionary book when first published in 1984. It has sold more than 250,000 copies worldwide and has been translated into 14 different languages. It has become a classic and one of the most widely read books on the subject of cancer prevention and cancer management. This edition is completely updated. It contains whole sections which provide important new information and self-help techniques. The book, remarkable for its clarity, enlarges upon what is a truly integrated, holistic approach to cancer; emphasising diet, the power of the mind, meditation, family and social support and the spiritual dimension in life.


Ian Gawler The Dragon's Blessing, Guy Allenby

Before Lance Armstrong and his bike, there was Ian Gawler and his inspirational fight for survival against cancer. At the end of 1974 Dr. Ian Gawler, an ambitious young veterinarian and athlete, developed bone cancer in his right leg. The leg was amputated at the hip. The following year, the cancer spread to his pelvis and chest. Gawler was told that nothing could be done for him and, at his lowest ebb, that he had only weeks to live. Gawler refused to give up, and began studying meditation and following a strict diet, pursuing an intense regime of research, introspection, and personal development. Against all odds and prognoses, his cancer began to retreat and he was eventually declared clear of cancer in 1978. Ian Gawler has been approached by a number of people over the years offering to write his biography, but he's never agreed—until now. Over hours of interviews and in extracts from his diaries, Gawler reveals for the first time many aspects of his amazing story. Ian Gawler: The Dragon's Blessing is an honest, unflinching and illuminating portrait of an unorthodox, compassionate and courageous Australian, whose own journey has been an inspiration

Meditation an In-Depth Guide, Ian Gawler & Paul Bedson

Meditation is increasingly recommended for everything from relaxation and stress management, to enhance relationships and wellbeing, to increase performance in sport and business, for personal growth, to transform pain and to assist healing.  From two leading Western meditation teachers comes this inspiring and comprehensive guide to anyone who wants to know how to meditate well.

Introducing mindfulness-based stillness meditation, Ian Gawler and Paul Bedson explain how to build a satisfying meditation practice using four easy to learn steps. They also show how meditation can be used to deepen spiritual practice, whether we have a commitment to a particular religious tradition, or a more secular view of our spirituality.

Drawing on modern science as well as ancient Eastern traditions and the authors' own extensive personal experience as practitioners and teachers, this guide offers the techniques and understanding needed to explore meditation practice deeply. It is also an invaluable resource for meditation teachers from all background.



Meditation Pure & Simple, Ian Gawler

People who meditate regulary seem to have something special about them. Perhaps it is their deeply contented smile. Perhaps it is their natural good health. Certainly, powerful medical research tells us that meditation reliably prevents illness, maximises performance, is a profound healing technique and leads to peace of mind.  Mediatation achieves all this by restoring our natural state of balance. Once we re-estalish an inner balance there is a flow on effect. Soon we experience physical balance and good health, emotional balance and poise, mental clarity and confidence , and spiritual harmony. The real secret to all this is that this balance is found in a state of inner silence - Simple Silence. And all that we need to do to experience it is - be still - and there it is ! So how to do it ? How to let go of life's busyness and be still ? How to relax physically and still the mind ? Meditation - Pure & Simple delivers what it promises.

Radical Remission, Kelly Turner

In her New York Times bestseller, Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds, Dr. Kelly A. Turner, founder of the Radical Remission Project, uncovers nine factors that can lead to a spontaneous remission from cancer—even after conventional medicine has failed.

While getting her Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkley, Dr. Turner, a researcher, lecturer, and counselor in integrative oncology, was shocked to discover that no one was studying episodes of radical (or unexpected) remission—when people recover against all odds without the help of conventional medicine, or after conventional medicine has failed.  She was so fascinated by this kind of remission that she embarked on a ten month trip around the world, traveling to ten different countries to interview fifty holistic healers and twenty radical remission cancer survivors about their healing practices and techniques. Her research continued by interviewing over 100 Radical Remission survivors and studying over 1000 of these cases.  Her evidence presents nine common themes that she believes may help even terminal patients turn their lives around.

It’s a practical plan that you can put to work immediately and continue to use forever. So don’t hide from stresses: go out and challenge new ones. Take the thrill from stress, but leave the threat behind. Thrive under pressure and learn the true Joy of Stress !

How to Grow Microgreens

How to Grow Microgreens - the tiny seedlings of herbs and vegetables - are today's hottest gourmet garnish, offering a multitude of colours, textures and distinct flavours, ranging from mild and subtle to spicy, hot or nutty. Larger than sprouts and smaller than 'baby' salad greens, microgreens are fantastic for those with limited garden space, as they are great to grow in containers on a terrace or windowsill. Immediate and practical, most varieties are ready in a week or so, and you can grow them in winter. As a bonus, as well as tasting great, nutritionally microgreens pack a powerful punch; they contain higher levels of active plant compounds than mature plants or seeds. How to Grow Microgreens provides detailed information - from planting to harvesting - for 25 popular vegetables and herbs, along with recipes and ideas on how to use them. There are also chapters on troubleshooting, the nutritional value of microgreens and how to encourage children to grow and enjoy them.




China Study, T. Colin Campbell & Thomas M Campbell

The science is clear. The results are unmistakable. Change your diet and dramatically reduce your risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes and obesity.

By any measure, America’s health is failing. We spend far more, per capita, on health care than any other society in the world, and yet two-thirds of Americans are overweight, and more than 15 million Americans have diabetes.  We fall prey to heart disease as often as we did thirty years ago.  The War on Cancer, launched in the 1970s, has been a miserable failure. Half of all Americans have a health problem that requires taking a prescription drug every week, and more than 100 million Americans have high cholesterol.

To make matters worse, we are leading our youth down a path of disease earlier and earlier in their lives.  One-third of the children in this country are overweight or at risk of becoming overweight. Our kids are increasingly falling prey to a form of diabetes that used to be seen only in adults, and children now take more prescription drugs than ever before.

These issues all come down to three things : breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The China Study presents a clear and concise message of hope as it dispels a multitude of health myths and misinformation : if you want to be healthy, change your diet.

Surviving Cancer, Paul Kraus

These self help strategies focussed on body, mind and spirit. They illustrate the enormous potential of the body to heal itself, given the opportunity to do so.

Dying to be me, Anita Moorjani

In this truly inspirational memoir, Anita Moorjani relates how, after fighting cancer for almost four years, her body -overwhelmed by the malignant cells spreading throughout her system - began shutting down. As her organs failed, she entered into an extraordinary near-death experience where she realised her inherent worth ...and the actual cause of her disease. Upon regaining consciousness, Anita found that her condition had improved so rapidly that she could be released from the hospital within weeks ...without a trace of cancer in her body! Within these pages, Anita recounts stories of her childhood in Hong Kong, her challenge to establish her career and find true love, as well as how she eventually ended up in that hospital bed where she defied all medical knowledge. As part of a traditional Hindu family residing in a largely Chinese and British society, she had been pushed and pulled by cultural and religious customs since she was a little girl. After years of struggling to forge her own path while trying to meet everyone else's expectations, she had the realisation, as a result of her epiphany on the other side, that she had the power to heal herself ...and that there were miracles in the Universe that she had never even imagined.
In Dying to Be Me, Anita freely shares all she has learned about illness, healing, fear, 'being love,' and the true magnificence of each and every human being!
