Did you know that Jamu Kunyit, a ginger and turmeric tonic, is the Balinese equivalent of `an apple a day' to `keep health problems at bay'?

Everyone knows that chamomile tea is the answer to a good night's sleep, that lemon tea is an invigorating way to start your morning and that ginger tea can settle your stomach. But did you know that Jamu Kunyit, a ginger and turmeric tonic, is the Balinese equivalent of `an apple a day' to `keep health problems at bay'; that herbal medicinal vinegars can be antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral as well as helping fight respiratory infections, coughs and bronchitis; or that adding black pepper and coconut oil to any turmeric drink can help your body reap the benefits more effectively? Rachel de Thample has gathered a collection of the best of these ancient drinks and traditional remedies, along with a few modern spins, offering tips on how to best build them into a busy lifestyle. Organised into three chapters, she covers Tonics such as Dairy Keifr, Beet Kvass, Nettle Tonic and Ginger Shots; Teas such as Grasshopper Tea, Spice Route Tea, Armenian Herbal Tea and Afghan Pin Chai, plus delicious and beneficial Drinks such as Elderflower Cordial, Amazake and Kombucha. This eclectic mix of natural brews is the perfect way to give your body a healthy boost.

Everything Begins with Asking for Help

Kevin Braddock
Authors:
Kevin Braddock

An honest guide to depression and anxiety, from rock bottom to recovery, from someone who has been through it and come out the other side. Everything Begins with Asking for Help is a frank, insightful and thought-provoking book on mental health, drawing on the author's own experience of a severe mental breakdown and sharing the recovery tools he has developed in partnership with various medical professionals and mental health experts. Kevin shares his own story to give the book a vital human element, explaining how his fast-paced life in Berlin as a successful magazine journalist was brought to a sudden halt by a major depressive episode. In this dark time, Kevin reached out to friends for help, and it was that act - asking for help - that set him on the long road to recovery. Building on this narrative, Kevin leads the reader through the stages of asking for help, learning to listen, the physical, emotional and mental elements of recovery, and how to maintain stable mental health at home and at work. Written with warmth, honesty and compassion, this is is a valuable resource for anyone who needs help and doesn't know where to begin.2019 Octopus Publishing Group

Eat It Anyway

Eve Simmons and Laura Dennison
Authors:
Eve Simmons and Laura Dennison

'One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.' - Virginia Woolf.The definition of 'healthy eating' has been chewed up, spat out and re-digested enough times to make Joe Public give up and seek out their nearest branch of McDonald's. Our mindless obsession with eating 'right' is such that we're now more concerned about what our Instagram followers think of a poorly lit picture of our dinner than we are of its effect on our own palate. Or, indeed, our happiness. We seem to be living in a time where we no longer eat with our hearts, emotions or heritage - but with what our waistlines (and followers) in mind.Not Plant Based are on a mission to help you love food again. The principle is very simple: eat what you like and don't worry about it. It's a menu that's especially delicious, 'guilt-free' and requires a hell of a lot less money spent in health food shops. Throughout the book, Laura and Eve call on experts to debunk myths and provide a balanced exploration of our attitude towards food, with some delicious recipes thrown in along the way. They discuss their own experiences of eating disorders and offer personal tips and coping mechanisms to help rid you of anxiety linked to food. No one is saying healthy eating is bad; there is simply a lot of misleading information out there. More to the point, food is so much more in the grand scheme of life than health: it's family, friends, enjoyment and memories. So go on, take a bite out of Eat It Anyway and learn to love your food all over again. It's SO mouth-wateringly good - we bet you'll be back for seconds.**PRAISE FOR EAT IT ANYWAY**'Learn to love food again with this book, which sorts nutritional nonsense from sensible science' - Woman's Weekly
