VG bookseller label to rear cover, $5 A/A Grafton 1979 paperback, 188pp Most people who wear glasses needn't. The simple, regular exercises of the Bates Method retrain eyes that have come to rely on glasses- that have become 'lazy'. The Bates Method is a series of exercises that first relax the eye muscles and then retrain them to focus efficiently and without strain. The explanations are simple and the Method easy to follow. Its most famous exponent was the author Aldous Huxley who could barely see even to read the book:'Within a couple of months I was reading without spectacles and, what was better still, without strain and fatigue.' This is a revised edition of a book that first appeared in 1919: the Bates Method has been proved a success over and over again ever since. No-one with eye-trouble can afford to ignore it.

Thorsons Way of Crystal Healing

A thorough introduction to the properties and qualities of crystals. Explores how crystal healing works, and how it can be combined with related therapies such as acupuncture, chakra work and energy healing. The author's belief is that many properties are attributed to crystals that they simply can't have, and that many crystal books and much of the information available to the public comes from misinformed sources. This book should give the beginner an honest understanding of the real value of crystals and of how they can develop their personal experiences of working with them. Includes line drawings, as well as plenty of practical exerices, meditations and visualizations.

HIESTAND Denie & Shelley 
Electrical Nutrition

"We are electrical, everything we do, eat, think, feel and drink affects us electrically..."
Electrical Nutrition suggests that the common western diet causes electrical chaos in the digestive tract, which in turn explains the chronic obesity and degeneration apparent in the population.
Drawing on 15 years in animal nutrition and a further 15 years in the natural health field, Hiestand notes the difference between the preventative medicine approach in farming and the "business" of human health care, which could be said to achieve its profitability by maintaining an unhealthy population.
The authors suggest that in the last 70 years our health care system has been an experiment called "modern medicine." Our current beliefs of what is, and is not, good food are challenged.
The authors also suggest that our modern chemical food production system has destroyed the electrical matrix of our food, thus denying the body's ability to recognize what is nourishment and what is toxin.
These powerful and controversial assertions are presented in a digestible form for the lay reader. Includes medical references and support from doctors and researchers.
