Based on the latest scientific discoveries, Dr Mosley gives you a detailed understanding of the secrets of this c...oronavirus, how it spreads, how it infects your body and how your immune system tries to fight back. Armed with the facts you'll be in a much better position to protect yourself and your family when the world begins to reopen. Dr Mosley also follows the work of leading doctors and virus researchers as they battle to find treatments and a safe and effective vaccine (ultimately, the only way to defeat the virus). Eating well, sleeping soundly, exercising and managing your stress are all critical for keeping your brain, body and immune system in the best possible shape over the coming months. These are areas where Dr Mosley is well known for his science-based and practical approach.

            Splitting: The inside story on headaches

            Splitting: The inside story on headaches (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Ellison, Amanda

            A leading neurologist lifts the lid on head pain - a fascinating, accessible guide to headaches, with some practical advice along the way - from what causes migraines to how sinus pain happens to whether we should just reach for the painkillers and ignore the root causes. This is... Why We Sleep for the head. There is nothing novel about headache. Since time immemorial, humans have suffered in its grip. Medieval Persia was a hotbed of intense debate over how to avoid and subsequently cure headache, and castor oil seemed to be prevalent as a remedy. Thankfully we have moved on. Darwin became a recluse because of his headaches, but on the bright side, this gave him more time to stay at home and think about the origin of the species. I doubt any modern human sees their headache as being a blessing, but it is trying to tell you something. How do we find out what that is? What is the point of pain?

            'An honest and fascinating account of the journey that Tom made from discovering he was a type 2 diabetic to doing something about it. This book will change lives.' Michael Mosley 'Two years ago I turned 50, weighed 22 stone and was heavily medicated for type 2 diabetes. I though...t it would be all downhill from there. By radically changing my nutrition, cutting out sugar, and taking up exercise, I've changed my life and reversed my diabetes. I hope my story will inspire others to regain their health and happiness and discover the new lease of life I'm experiencing.' Tom Watson began to put on weight in his early twenties, having developed an appetite for fast food and cheap beer while studying at the University of Hull. As time progressed - and his penchant for anything sweet, fatty or fizzy persisted - he found himself adjusting his belt, loosening his collar and upsizing his wardrobe to XXL. He continued to pile on the pounds when he entered the world of politics as MP for West Bromwich East (despite short-lived flirtations with fad diets and fitness classes). By December 2014, his bathroom scales had tipped to 22 stone. After being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in late 2015, he decided to take control of his diet and exercise. He started to feel better quickly and within a short time his long-term blood sugar levels were within normal range. By July 2018, he came off medication.

            Food for baby that feeds the whole family, too! Recipes and advice from mum, instagram sensation and breast-feeding coach, Rebecca Wilson on how to wean your baby and feed your family with a single dish. Let Rebecca Wilson, the mummy behind @whatmummymakes, show you how to cook s...imple, healthy, delicious meals to wean your baby and feed the rest of the family at the same time. Apart from the joys and benefits of sharing family meals, her vision enables adults to rethink how they eat, too. There's no need to put baby first and eat unhealthily as a parent, as the whole family can share the same delicious, nutritious food. Organised by type of meal, you'll be able to whip up breakfasts, lunches and main meals for all the family to enjoy in 10, 15 and 30 minutes and there are tips on how to adapt the recipes for vegan or vegetarian lifestyles as well as for those you need to eat in a dairy or gluten-free way. Rebecca's recipes are quick, fresh, accessible and nutritious, which marks this book out from others in the field. Her philosophy is that parents can wean their babies by eating alongside them, adapting grown-up food for babies. Alongside the recipes, there is lots of advice to help make life a little easier, from giving suggestions about what you can freeze to ingredients you should avoid, nutritional food profiles. Real-life testimonials from the What Mummy Makes community prove that Rebecca's approach works.
