            An acclaimed medical expert and patient advocate offers an eye-opening look at many common and widely used medical interventions that are far more harmful than helpful. Modern medicine has significantly advanced in the last few decades as more informed practices, thorough researc...h, and incredible breakthroughs have made it possible to successfully treat and even eradicate many serious ailments. But while we have learned much that has changed our outlook and practices, we still rely on medical interventions that are vastly out of date and can adversely affect our health. It is an article of faith, for example, that finishing a course of antibiotics prevents the recurrence of illness, that sunscreens block harmful UV rays which cause skin cancer, and that all cancer-screening programs save lives. But do scientific studies back up such beliefs? In this game-changing book, infectious-disease expert and Rotavirus vaccine inventor Dr Offit highlights fifteen common medical interventions still recommended and practised by medical professionals, despite clear evidence that they are harmful - including the above examples, as well as the treatment of acid reflux in babies, the lowering of fevers, and the reliance on heart stents and knee surgery. By analysing what makes these practices so ineffective and harmful, and by presenting medical alternatives, Overkill gives patients invaluable information to help them ask their doctors better questions and to advocate for their own health.

            Divergent Mind: Thriving in a World That Wasn't Designed for You

            Divergent Mind: Thriving in a World That Wasn't Designed for You (Hardback)

            A paradigm-shifting exploration of neurodivergent women-those with autism, ADHD, synesthesia, and other sensory processing differences-offering a timely, provocative examination of why these traits are overlooked in women and how our society can benefit from allowing their unique... strengths to flourish. As a smart, successful, Harvard and Berkeley-educated writer and devoted mother, Jenara Nerenberg didn't discover her autism and ADHD until well into her adulthood, after it had already taken a huge toll on her personal and professional life. Being a journalist, she dove into the research and discovered neurodiversity-a movement which seeks to stop pathologizing `normal' and `abnormal' brains and start embracing the variety of mental makeups we all have. But we can't accept what we don't recognize, and when it comes to women, sensory processing disorders including autism, ADHD, and synesthesia are often overlooked, masked, or mistaken for something else entirely. Between a flawed system that focuses on diagnosing younger, male populations, and the fact that women are conditioned from a young age to blend in and conform to gender expectations, women often don't learn about their condition until they are adults, if at all. As a result, millions live with undiagnosed or misdiagnosed neurodivergence, and the misidentification leads to depression, anxiety, shame, and low self-esteem. Meanwhile, we all miss out on the gifts their neurodivergent minds have to offer. Divergent Mind is a long-overdue, much-needed answer for women who have a deep sense that they are different. Sharing real stories from women with autism, ADHD, synesthesia, dyslexia, misophonia and more, Nerenberg explores how these brain variances present differently in women and dispels widely-held misconceptions (for example, it's not that autistic people lack sensitivity and feeling, they have an overwhelming excess of it). Nerenberg also offers us a path forward, taking readers through practical ways that i

            'I'm a dad and I'm scared.' Charting John Kirwan's experiences as a father, and incorporating voices of young people today, Stand By Me examines issues around teenage mental health, with a focus on depression and anxiety. It is intended as a useful guide for parents, caregivers a...nd teachers - anyone concerned about the wellbeing of young people in their care. Like All Blacks Don't Cry, it has an emphasis on hopefulness and living positively. Stand By Me is JK's second collaboration with writer Margie Thomson, and draws on the expertise of Dr Elliot Bell and Kirsty Louden-Bell, clinical psychologists from the Otago Medical School. JK confronts an array of questions about parenting and his own children, and looks at case studies of teenagers who have been diagnosed with mental health issues including anxiety and depression. In their own words, the young people interviewed reflect on their treatment and progress, and consider how these experiences have shaped them as they face forward into their adult lives.
