- Candida Albicans: The Non-Drug Approach To The Treatment Of Candida Infection
In this fully updated edition of the classic health bestseller, Leon Chaitow shows how to detect whether yeast is your problem and provides a comprehensive non-drug approach to the treatment of Candida, providing help and advice for sufferers of conditions such as Ibs, cystitis, thrush, Pmt, fatigue, muscular pain, allergies and many more. Candida Albicans, a yeast that lives inside all of us, normally presents no health problems, but today's widespread use of antibiotics, contraceptive pills and steroids, as well as a sugar-rich diet, can cause a proliferation of this parasite yeast leading to a whole host of possible health problems. Candida Albicans can be responsible for such conditions as depression, anxiety, irritability, Ibs, constipation, heartburn, allergies, muscular pain, diarrhoea, vaginitis, acne, cystitis, bloatedness, tiredness, migraine, hopelessness, thrush, Pmt, and other menstrual problems. Fully updated with all the latest medical research, this book provides you with a clear, accessible and practical guide to first determining whether Candida is your problem, and then outlining the ways in which you can fight and prevent it. The book contains information on the full rage of complementary and orthodox treatments available, as well as an anti-Candida diet and advice on which supplements, prebiotics, probiotics and herbal extracts to take to control Candida naturally. Also includes information on what causes Candida and the preventative measures that can be taken.
- I Didn't Do It For You: How the World Used and Abused a Small African Nation
One small East African country embodies the battered history of the continent: patronised by colonialists, riven by civil war, confused by Cold War manoeuvring, proud, colorful, with Africa's best espresso and worst rail service. Michela Wrong brilliantly reveals the contradictions and comedy, past and present, of Eritrea. Just as the beat of a butterfly's wings is said to cause hurricanes on the other side of the world, so the affairs of tiny Eritrea reverberate onto the agenda of superpower strategists. This new book on Africa is from the author of the critically acclaimed In the Footsteps of Mr Kurtz. Eritrea is a little-known country scarred by decades of conflict and occupation. It has weathered the world's longest-running guerrilla war, and the dogged determination that secured victory against Ethiopia, its giant neighbour, is woven into the national psyche. Fascist Italy wanted Eritrea as the springboard for a new, racially-pure Roman empire, Britain sold off its industry for scrap, the US needed headquarters for its state-of-the-art spy station and the Soviet Union used it as a pawn in a proxy war. Michela Wrong reveals the breathtaking abuses this tiny nation has suffered and, with the sharp eye for detail that was the hallmark of her account of Mobutu's Congo, she tells the story of colonialism itself. Along the way, we meet a formidable Emperor, a guerrilla fighter who taught himself French cuisine in the bush, and a chemist who arranged the heist of his own laboratory. An arresting blend of travelogue and history, 'I Didn't Do It For You' pierces the dark heart of our colonial history.
