Get Me To 21 - The Jenna Lowe Story (Paperback): Gabi Lowe Get Me To 21 - The Jenna Lowe Story (Paperback)

After an extraordinary four-year battle, Gabi Lowe lost her beautiful, talented 20-year-old daughter, Jenna Lowe, on 8 June 2015 to pulmonary arterial hypertension, a rare degenerative lung disease, following a double lung transplant.

Jenna was young, bright and articulate. She was LEAD SA’s Youth Hero of the Year in 2015. Her death was mourned by thousands of people whose lives she had touched. During her short but full life, Jenna and the Lowe family raised much-needed awareness around this rare and devastating disease, highlighting the dire need for access to medication and organ donors locally. Although desperately ill, Jenna became the face for organ donation in South Africa through the hugely successful #GetMeTo21 campaign in which she invited all South Africans to attend her twenty-first birthday celebration by clicking on a link to become an organ donor. Tragically, Jenna died four months before reaching her milestone.

Brilliantly written, riveting in all its terrible truth and pain, in this brutally honest memoir Gabi Lowe shares her family’s desperate fight to save Jenna’s life. Get Me to 21 will inspire us to believe that the ability to face even the darkest, and most unimaginable, lives deep within us all.

Toe Antoinette Pienaar, Afrikaanse sangeres en aktrise, die eerste keer staan voor oom Johannes Willemse, legendariese Griekwa-heler, sê hy: “Hier kom Juffrou nou eers aan!”

Want toe het oom Johannes al byna veertig jaar lank drome gekry van die vrou met die rooi bakkie aan wie hy sy kennis sou oordra. Kennis wat terug tot in die antieke verskiet van oupa na kleinseun aangegee is. Ná jare se vakleerlingskap het die eerste uitgawe van Kruidjie Roer My verskyn. Dié boek oor wat Karookruie vir jou kan doen het sy plek as klassieke werk ingeneem.

In Kruidjie Roer My hoor ’n mens die warm stem van Antoinette soos duisende luisteraars na haar gewilde rubriek op rsg dit ken: vol begrip en deernis, altyd met ’n staaltjie en boweal die ruimhartige mededeling van haar kennis en oom Johannes se wysheid wat nie net na jou liggaam omsien nie, maar ook jou gees dokter.

’n Boek vol mooi name, soos kokkoromoniet, rooivergeetwortels en louhout. En met ’n weelde aan stories en raad wat nou weer beskikbaar is.

It's Only Blood - Shattering The Taboo Of Menstruation (Paperback): Anna Dahlqvist It's Only Blood - Shattering The Taboo Of Menstruation (Paperback)
Anna Dahlqvist; Translated by Alice E. Olsson
R320 R254 Discovery Miles 2 540 Save R66 (21%) In stock

Across the world, 2 billion experience menstruation, yet menstruation is seen as a mark of shame. We are told not to discuss it in public, that tampons and sanitary pads should be hidden away, the blood rendered invisible. In many parts of the world, poverty, culture and religion collide causing the taboo around menstruation to have grave consequences. Younger people who menstruate are deterred from going to school, adults from work, infections are left untreated. The shame is universal and the silence a global rule.

In It's Only Blood, Anna Dahlqvist tells the shocking but always moving stories of why and how people from Sweden to Bangladesh, from the United States to Uganda, are fighting back against the shame.

Our thought lives have incredible power over our mental, emotional, and even physical well-being. In fact, our thoughts can either limit us to what we believe we can do or release us to experience abilities well beyond our expectations. When we choose a mindset that extends our abilities rather than placing limits on ourselves, we will experience greater intellectual satisfaction, emotional control, and physical health. The only question is . . . how?

Backed by up-to-date scientific research and biblical insight, Dr. Caroline Leaf empowers readers to take control of their thoughts in order to take control of their lives. In this practical book, readers will learn to use

- The 5-step Switch on Your Brain Learning Program, to build memory and learn effectively

- The Gift Profile, to discover the unique way they process information

- The Mindfulness Guide, to optimize their thought life and find their inner resilience

Dr. Leaf shows readers how to combine these powerful tools in order to improve memory, learning, cognitive and intellectual performance, work performance, physical performance, relationships, emotional health, and most importantly a meaningful life well lived.

Each of us has significant psychological resources at our fingertips that we can use in order to improve our overall well-being. Dr. Leaf shows us how to harness those resources to unlock our hidden potential

Jay Shetty 4
R305 R229 Discovery Miles 2 290 Save R76 (25%) Pre-order

Over the past three years, Jay Shetty has become one of the world’s most popular influencers. One of his clips was the most watched video on Facebook last year, with over 360 million views. His social media following totals over 32 million, he has produced over 400 viral videos, which have amassed more than 5 billion views, and his podcast, ‘On Purpose’, is consistently ranked the world’s #1 health-related podcast.

In this inspiring, empowering book, Shetty draws on his time as a monk in the Vedic tradition to show us how we can clear the roadblocks to our potential and power. Drawing on ancient wisdom and his own rich experiences in the ashram, Think Like a Monk reveals how to overcome negative thoughts and habits, and access the calm and purpose that lie within all of us.

The lessons monks learn are profound but often abstract. Shetty transforms them into advice and exercises we can all apply to reduce stress, improve focus, improve relationships, identify our hidden abilities, increase self-discipline and give the gifts we find in ourselves to the world. Shetty proves that everyone can – and should – think like a monk.

From the pioneer of diabetes reversal and creator of the 'Newcastle Diet'

For centuries type 2 diabetes was regarded as an incurable, lifelong condition. Even worse, it seemed to be inevitably progressive – but no longer.

Professor Roy Taylor is one of the world’s leading experts on type 2, the man who in 2006 finally found the missing piece of the jigsaw explaining that it was actually a reversible condition. With his team of researchers at Newcastle University, he launched a series of studies leading to a remarkable, multi-million-pound trial, which in 2019 confirmed that simple advice about diet could bring about lasting remission.

In this book, Taylor brings all the knowledge and experience of four decades of treating people with diabetes. He explains exactly what is happening in the body as type 2 diabetes develops and shows how you can live a full and healthy life beyond it.

** Includes the 3-step Newcastle weight loss programme, as well as delicious tried-and-tested recipes from participants of the diabetes reversal trials **
