            This anthology addresses the mental health and therapeutic needs of Polynesian and Melanesian people and the scarcity of resources for those working with them. It is divided into four parts Identity, Therapeutic Practice, Death and Dying, Reflexive Practice that approach the conc...erns of Maori, Samoans, Tongans, and Fijians. Contributors include a wide range of writers, most of whom are Maori or Pasifika. Poems by Serie Barford, Selina Tusitala Marsh and Tracey Tawhiao introduce each section. The stresses of adolescence, identity, families, death and spirituality are all explored in innovative research that offers a wealth of inspiration and ideas to supportive family, friends, professionals, and professional educators.

            Te Whanau o Waipareira Trust has produced a DVD guide to breastfeeding for Maori called Whangai U a beginners guide to breastfeeding. e Wha-nau o Waipareira Trust has produced the first DVD to be made that offers a guide to breastfeeding for Maori called Wha-ngai U- a beginners ...guide to breastfeeding. Wha-ngai U- is an easy-to-use guide to breastfeeding, made locally that features West Auckland women. It is a practical, relevant guide that is helpful and relatable for women of all ages, ethnicities and socioeconomic backgrounds. The DVD resource is free for women caregivers and families in West Auckland, and is available for purchase at a minimal cost to all other service providers throughout the country, as well as internationally. The DVD will be formally launched on Friday 2nd March. The idea for the DVD was the result of a collaborative discussion with programme co-ordinators and practitioners from the Waipareira Antenatal breastfeeding workshop service. "It's great for Ma-ori and New Zealand women in general to be able to see and hear stories they can relate to" says Melissa Hadley, co-coordinator of the Antenatal breastfeeding workshop service. The DVD resource has been made to offer an understandable and comprehensive local guide on breastfeeding, where previously there have been none. Ma-ori breastfeeding rates have fallen well below the national average, and many Ma-ori women have grown up in wha-nau where they have not been breastfed or been witness to breastfeeding. Those at Waipareira Trust behind the creation of the resource hope to encourage Ma-ori women to breastfeed and to offer support for all women who are having difficulties with breastfeeding.

            How often does not having enough energy get in the way of what you want to achieve? If you had an abundance of energy, what things would you do differently in your life? Would you start a business, prioritise time for yourself, choose to study something new, or would your relatio...nships be different? How would you impact the world around you? It's easy to pass off feeling tired and put it down to a multitude of things in our life - your job, your children, your relationships, but there is an enormous array of factors that might be draining you of energy - and often without you even realising it. For example, just sitting for more than an hour produces biochemical reactions in the body that make you feel more lethargic.

            How many of us have been told that if we burn more calories than we eat, weight loss will be inevitable? How many of us have discovered that this century old philosophy does not seem to apply to our body no matter how hard we work, in this modern world? In a world obsessed with c...alorie counting, we find ourselves instead watching the waistlines of the Western world continually increasing. What if the foundation nutritional philosophy that the calorie equation is the sole determinant of weight loss is completely outdated and in many cases wrong? Through sharing her own personal story and the journey that set her on to uncover and explore the biochemistry of sustainable weight loss, Dr Libby shares countless case studies of clients she has worked with over the past 16 years, along with her two decades of scientific research into the principles of body fat loss.

            It is striking how much a human body can take. We starve it, abuse it and hurt it. It is a miracle that our body is able to function and serve us for the duration of an average life today. Yet this lifetime is much shorter than it could be. Dr Gabor Lenkei received his medical de...gree in Hungary in 1986 with the highest of honors. After six years of practice he rejected orthodox medical approaches due to their ineffectiveness and began his search for the reasons underlying these poor results. He found them. In this book he reveals the answers. This may be the most honest book ever written by a medical practitioner. Dr Lenkei discovered that with the intake of proper amounts of vitamins and minerals, ailments can be reduced. After years of research Dr Lenkei has written this book to answer the following questions: - Why do we live only half as long as we could? - Who is shaping our concepts of health? - Why is it that, usually only people from tribal cultures live to be a hundred? - Who is hiding the most important scientific discoveries, and why? - How can a fortune be made from inventing a childhood disease? - What are the most common reasons for gaining weight? - Who concealed the cure for cancer? - Do you know how easy it is to stay healthy?
