Hair Loss in Women

Understand why this is happening to you and learn how to turn your hair growth back on

Hair loss for a woman can be a devastating blow. A blow to our self-esteem and our very identity.

As a former Registered Nurse, herself a hair loss sufferer, Bambi Staveley was astounded by the lack of information available for women with hair loss.

If you are a woman suffering from hair loss, you have probably searched the internet for answers, only to discover a world of contradictory information and a sea of so-called magic potions, drops, supplements and miracle cures all competing for our desperate dollar.

Hair Loss in Women is the result of over a decade of research. It contains everything you need to know to understand why this is happening to you and to give your hair the best chance at recovery.

About the Author

I was born March 1, 1938, in Potts Point, Sydney. My father was working as an engineer on the huge Captain Cook graving docks defence project on Garden Island, in Sydney Harbour prior to and during WW2. I was evacuated back to Victoria after the Japanese submarine torpedo and shelling attacks on Sydney and Newcastle in 1942. My personal history in Malvern at No.6 Coonil Crescent predates the arrival of the Cabrini Sisters in 1948 to take over the small private hospital called St Benedicts’, at No. 5 Coonil Crescent.

After Scotch College, I studied at RMIT and qualified as a professional mechanical engineer.

Whilst there I became involved with future professionals who would be involved in the design and construction of Cabrini Hospital.

My career path resulted in me becoming a project engineer with General Motor’s Holdens at Fisherman’s Bend and working with the same consultants, architects and engineers who were working on Cabrini Hospital projects.

As years advanced I found that I was required to use many of the excellent medical services offered by Cabrini Hospital.

Consequently my background qualifies me to comment on many aspects of Cabrini Hospital and better explain how it is integrated with the structure of the Malvern community.

I have now risen to the challenge! I have written this book about Fizzle, with the assistance of his family and many friends.

Why was Alister John Forsyth called “Fizzle” by many of his close friends?

I have no idea. It was his nickname when I first met him in 1949. We were schoolboys aged about twelve. I had started at Scotch College, after completing primary school at Frankston State School. It didn’t take us long to become lifelong best friends. My nickname soon became “Cammie”, an abbreviation of Campbell.

Dictionary definitions of the word “fizzle” are not flattering, but I believe that our Fizzle has put a new fizz or sparkle into the word Fizzle.

About the Author

Hi, I’m Lucy.
I was diagnosed when I was 6. Before I knew I had cancer, I was feeling very sick in the mornings and would vomit. After that, I would be fine. I found out I had cancer after I had a CT scan, which was done in a big loud donut shaped machine. 
Have you had one of them?
Through this new journey, it’s ok to feel scared; I know I was! Lots of things are going to change, but just remember there are lots of people around you who can help and explain any questions you may have. My family, including my Mum, Dad and Brother were always there for me no matter what, and still are today.
So… Do whatever you can to beat this monster! I know you can do it; after all, this is your journey.

Five Easy Ways to Solve the Aged Care Puzzle

IT’S TRICKY BEING PART OF THE SANDWICH GENERATION.

Why are we called that? It’s simple – we’re sandwiched between our kids who are possibly still finding their way and our parents who are possibly losing theirs.

When reading 5 Easy Ways to Solve the Aged Care Puzzle, stories may sound all too familiar. You may think I’m zeroing in on your family.

Trust me, I’m not, because my stories come from a variety of places around the globe in western civilisations.

It’s so important for you to realise that you’re not alone in this tricky transitional journey. Many of your friends and colleagues may also be perplexed with the issues of impending Aged Care for their loved ones.

Talk with them, talk with the type of professionals mentioned in this book and make the process easier. It doesn’t have to be hard. Talking can ease what you’re going through.

Imagine the process being easy, because you enlisted the help of professionals who do this every day and know all the tips and tricks of this ever-changing process.

Moving a loved one into Aged Care is not a Set and Forget process. It requires follow-up with the Aged Care Home staff, observation of changes, continuing to pay bills and shopping for incidentals, but your loved one will be safe.

And if you’ve been involved in full-time care for a loved one, you’ll possibly find that after 24/7 care is over, you may begin to remember the funnier moments.

The User’s Manual For Your Body

  • HOW THE BODY HANDLES THE FOOD WE EAT
  • WHY WE GET OBESITY AND BECOME SICK
  • HOW TO CURE IT AND STAY HEALTHY

Your body is the most sophisticated thing in the Universe, and you should view it as your most treasured possession. But you did not arrive in this world with a user’s manual that tells you how your body works, particularly in relation to the food you put into it, and what goes wrong when you do things differently to how you have evolved.

Two thirds of western society are either overweight or suffering from obesity. This a potent source of unhappiness, extending in many to anxiety, stress and clinical depression. But there’s also a significantly increased risk of serious diseases such as cancer, heart attacks, strokes, Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis and diabetes. If you contract any of these there’s a very good chance you will die prematurely.

Statistics show that what we are currently doing is clearly not working. And that’s because people simply don’t know or have been given the wrong information. The User’s Manual For Your Body provides in simple terms everything you need to know.

About the Authors

JOHN ARONIS

MBBus (Acc) GradDipCA MComm MA (PAIS) CA CTA

John was born in Sydney, and was raised in Brisbane with some of his childhood spent in Goondiwindi, Murgon, and Yeppoon. He now calls Brisbane home (or, more correctly, Pine Rivers Shire!)

He has a Bachelor’s degree in business, a Master’s degree in Commerce, and a Master of Arts in Political and International Studies. He is a Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Advisor, and is Principal of his accountancy business based in Brisbane.

John has experienced a personal battle with obesity for many years, and like many individuals was left frustrated and totally confused by the lack of authoritative information on how best to deal with it. His personal story can be found in his bio video.

After studying the topic extensively and putting into practice the Nysteia Formula he has now reached his biological optimum weight (BOW). And importantly, he will never again become overweight and progress to obesity.

With his good friend and business partner, Dr Andrew Renaut, he has developed Nysteia and put all of this experience and knowledge into the one place, so that others may derive the same benefit.

When he is not working, John likes to maintain his physical and mental wellbeing by continuing with the Nysteia Formula on a daily basis.

John is a trained classical guitarist, but can damn well play the blues on a Fender Stratocaster, and shares this guitar passion with Andrew. He also enjoys flying planes, walking in rainforests, and practicing the Japanese martial art of Aikido in which he holds the rank of 3rd Dan Black Belt. As often as he can, he returns to Osaka Japan, which he considers paradise on Earth.
