How to Read a 21st Century Hair Analysis by Dr Igor Tabrizian

How to Read a 21st Century Hair Analysis
Dr Igor Tabrizian
$75

Dr Tabrizian's book presents the reader with a logical description of cause and effect of nutrient surfeit and deficit and how these imbalances can be determined and treated following HTMA. The use of diagrams to elaborate and clarify the facts surrounding diagnosis and treatment is to be warmly applauded as in major part it demystifies the often complex biochemical processes behind the overt signs of distress that trace element and nutrient imbalance can create and allows the layman to understand details of the biochemistry that would otherwise possibly be beyond them. The text follows the route of trace elements and nutrients through the body and shows how they are, or are not, assimilated to cause clinical effects in a way that is understandable to the layman and at level appropriate for the medical practitioner, clinician and nutritionist alike.

Dr Igor Tabrizian

Revised and updated, Nutrition:The Good, The Bad and The Politics is a fascinating and accessible book for anyone wishing to explore Nutritional Medicine to benefit their own health.

Subjects covered are trace elements, toxic elements and coenzyme Q10.  Many diseases are also covered, namely: cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, depression and ADD.  Perhaps most interesting of all is the politics of natural medicines today.

Expertly illustrated and extensively referenced this book captures the knowledge and spirit of Nutritional Medicine today, with humour to match the breadth of the subject matter.  This book is informative and entertaining.

Overall perhaps the best description of this text is cheekily insightful.

The Visual Textbook of Nutritional Medicine by Dr Igor Tabrizian

The Visual Textbook of Nutritional Medicine
Dr Igor Tabrizian
$75

Completely revised, updated, indexed and in full-colour with extensive references.

The Visual Textbook of Nutritional Medicine is a well illustrated and expertly presented text by Dr Igor Tabrizian, whose talents in lateral thinking and concept simplification have made him a leader in Nutritional Medicine courses. After a long journey through the annals of Nutritional Medicine, Dr Tabrizian successfully simplifies a vast amount of data into bite-sized digestible pieces.  Dr Tabrizian explores scientific research that could be classed as peripheral to modern medicine; quantum physics, metallotoxicology, veterinary medicine, horticulture and environmental politics.  Each of these disciplines provide vital clues in his search for a Unified Theory of Medicine which he terms Cation Dysfunction Theory (CDT). Using CDT he developed a molecular approach to solving common problems in General Practice, which Dr Tabrizian teaches at his seminars and also in his apprenticeship scheme for Medical Practitioners.

Dr Tabrizian uses clinical and personal research.  Graphics simplify difficult concepts from his Practitioner's Compendium lecture series (provided only to those in his apprenticeship scheme). This book is a 'must have' for any student of Nutritional Medicine. The astute reader will determine that politics plays a crucial role in questions of a medical nature.

The Naturopathic College of New Zealand recommends this fabulous book to students because it (very importantly) provides them with information that is easy to understand.  Tabrizian takes the confusion out of the in-depth nutritional processes explained, and lays it out easily.  This book allows the visual learner to embrace biochemical concepts, and covers many important aspects of nutritional therapy. It is a book that both practitioners and students will continue to refer to throughout their career due to the wealth of information within the pages.

Beyond the Fig Leaf by Dr Adrian Zentner

Beyond the Fig Leaf
Dr Adrian Zentner
$19.95

In this sequel to his first book, 'Raising the Fig Leaf' Dr Adrian Zentner takes us beyond the conventional view of testosterone as a sex hormone to explore the role of this critical hormone in promoting health, vitality and, indeed, longevity. Whilst focusing on the medical aspects of testosterone deficiency and replacement therapy he revisits and updates those areas of sexual and interpersonal relationships that were first dealt with in 'Raising the Fig Leaf.'

Adrian is an honours graduate in medicine from the University of NSW and holds a Diploma in Aviation Medicine from the Royal College Physicians, London.

As a past manager of both medical and safety services for Australian Airlines (now Qantas Domestic), his background has provided extensive experience in maximising human performance as well as health. Adrian has for the last 15 years turned his attention to general medical practice with a strong focus on the management of hormonal problems. Currently based in Perth, he conducts regular clinics in hormone replacement and wellness in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Adelaide.

Adrian is a committee member and trustee of the London based Society for the Study of Androgen Deficiency and has featured in television programs including Good Medicine, A Current Affair and Today Tonight, addressing issues of hormones, vitality and performance.

Once Was Burma

Once Was Burma - New Images from the Streets of Rangoon
Kim Buddee
$69.95

An historic transformation is happening in Myanmar, once was Burma. The country is emerging from its isolation and finally joining the 21st Century in what has been described as “the Burmese spring.”

This revolution is being felt most particularly in the former capital Yangon, once was Rangoon. There is at last the prospect of an end to decades of neglect and decay.

However this brave new world spells uncertainty for the future of not only the unique collection of colonial heritage buildings that have miraculously survived,but also for other aspects of a  the city where the national costume is worn by most of the population,the women and children have a creamy paste called “thanaka” smeared on their faces andthe world’s oldest buses converted from World War Two army trucks are still in service.

These new images capture that moment in time...
...before everything changes.
