As jong seun het Danie Smuts met ’n blikkie agter vee in die veld aangeloop om kuttels te versamel vir ’n konkoksie om maselspasiŽnte se simptome te verlig. Min het hy toe geweet dat hy eendag die legendariese aanbieder van ’n gewilde Springbok Radio-program sou word waarin die volk kure vir allerlei kwinte en kwale deel.
Toe Boererate – ’n keur van die tradisionele advies wat luisteraars oor die jare vir Smuts se radioprogram ingestuur het – in 1989 verskyn, was dit onmiddellik ’n treffer. Sedertdien het diť besonderse boek uit sirkulasie verdwyn, maar die aanvraag daarvoor nie.
’n Byna vergete era in die Afrikaanse kultuurgeskiedenis word in herinnering geroep deur diť vreemdsoortige en dikwels skreeusnaakse wenke. Die volgende stappe word byvoorbeeld aanbeveel om griep te bekamp:
Maar wees gewaarsku: Dat die griep binne 24 uur sal verdwyn, word gewaarborg, maar jy mag dalk ’n hoofpyn oorhou.
Boererate se oorsprong word teruggevoer na verskillende bronne: waarnemings, eerstehandse ondervinding, mites, godsdiens en selfs toorkuns. Behandeling gaan dikwels gepaard met die uitvoer van komieklike rituele.
Tussen die mediese advies is daar ook handige raad oor sake op die plaaswerf: hoe om ’n troeteldier se vel te laat blink, aartappelsteggies lank vars te hou, van lastige miere ontslae te raak, en nog baie meer.
Boererate bied onontbeerlike pitkos vir geskiedenis-liefhebbers en is ’n nostalgiese terugblik op ’n kosbare stukkie Afrikaner-erfenis.

A pracitcal guide to opening and strengthening your reiki channels. Since originating in Japan in 1922, Reiki has been adapted to cultural traditions across the world. Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which a "universal energy" is transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing. Reiki is used for healing oneself and others and for spiritual development. It works by combining two things: initiations that awaken and open your energy channels and techniques for using your hands, eyes, and intention to direct this energy flow where needed. Anyone who wishes to do this work must prepare by following particular methods and steps, all wonderfully explained in this introductory guide. Discover why Reiki is so unique and learn about its origins, five precepts, attunements, basic hand positions, and special treatments created by Reiki's founder, Mikao Usui. All the spiritual practices here have been specifically chosen to guide readers on a path of love, light, healing, and self-knowledge.

Nearly half of us at some point in our lives will suffer chronic pain. We go to the doctor, where the standard treatment on offer is either medication - which only masks the problem - or surgery - which can make things worse. For renowned osteopath Nick Potter, the reason why traditional medicine doesn't work is because chronic pain often has less to do with twisted muscles and more to do with far deeper-rooted anxieties. An expert on pain in all its forms, Potter has had nearly 30 years' clinical experience of treating people - ranging from elite athletes and hedge-funders to over-stretched families - who come to him with real symptoms and real physical pain for which there appears to be no root cause. In this fascinating book, he takes us on a journey into biology, evolution and contemporary social behaviour and anthropology to examine our relationship with pain. He presents his own roadmap for wellbeing (including his acclaimed theory of breathing), along with success stories from the consulting room, and shows us how to spot the signs and break the vicious cycle of stress, pain and anxiety before the damage is done.
