Summary

The era of the yummy mummy has finally gone and in order to celebrate this, Shari Low has taken a baby wipe to the glossy veneer of the school of perfect parenting and written Because Mummy Said So to show us the truth about motherhood in all of its sleep-deprived, frazzled glory. This is a book that every experienced, new or soon-to-be parent will relate to – well, hallelujah and praise be those who worship at the temple of Febreze. 
 
For over a decade, Shari wrote a hugely popular weekly newspaper column documenting the ups, downs and bio-hazardous laundry baskets of family life. Because Mummy Said So is a collection of her favourite stories of parenting, featuring superheroes in pull up pants, embarrassing mistakes, disastrous summer holidays, childhood milestones, tear-jerking nativity plays, eight bouts of chickenpox and many, many discussions that were finished with the ultimate parental sticky situation get-out clause... Because Mummy Said So.

    Yoga - For Health and Disease

    The precious science and wisdom of Yoga have been handed over to us over thousands of years ago. To explore it scientifically from the perspective of the needs of the current generation, it has been my humble desire to study this science with modern inputs so that it is researched again in the light of requirements of the present-recent times. As an essential part of the Integrated Therapeutic Approach called as Sanyukta Upchar Paddhati or Holistic & Integrated Medicine which I have devised and which has been explained by me in this book, I not only studied the science of Yoga but also implemented it in the therapy of the patients whom I treated. Upon this I conclude that Yoga is a boon to mankind, in the sense, the practice of this ancient science confers upon one a strong immune system, it improves health and ones personality, it enhances ones awareness, mindfulness, concentration, memory, mind body coordination, productivity and enthusiasm. It thus helps in combating various diseases that afflict one. It also reduces the daily stress and strain of life. I strongly recommend commencing a Yogic practice and inculcating a Yogic life style right from the young age of life. Of course, Yoga is meant for all, the young as well as the old. This small book provides one with the various aspects of Maharishi Patanjalis Ashtanga Yoga as a part of my Holistic & Integrated Approach of treating patients and also by itself, as a stand alone therapy. May we all benefit from the knowledge dispersed through these pages. Hari Om.

    The path to great wealth and health starts from within. It hinges especially to your acceptance to the world around you. The result from the positive outbreak of your mind is a clear definition of what you desire from and for the world. Rather, the world itself will find you worthy of your altruist mind. Slowly, all the abundance in the world will open itself up to you. 
    
    You see, our mind is made up of constant rewiring of our thoughts, past experiences, expectations, actions at every second, minute and hours of our life. The ‘final product’ of our thoughts is the one in charge of the further reaction towards everyone around you.
    
    Within the next pages of this book, you will uncover the one true manifesto of your abundance. It is more than just your well-known struggle but it starts as early from the way your mind commanding your nerve system to act upon it. This command is highly influenced by the result of conflict between your mind and your heart.
