Book Description

Tiredness may be described as the special bane of the late twentieth century. Probably never before have the people of Western civilisation been collectively so tired. The invention of various appliances, intended to take the drudgery out of housework, has resulted in the housewife having to take up an outside job, in order to buy them and pay for their maintenance. Modern life is full of hitherto unheard of tensions - planes to be caught, deadlines to be met, children to be taken to and picked up from pre-school on time - the list is endless.

All these factors contribute to chronic tiredness. Tiredness can rob us of our appetite for food, the pleasure of good companionship, joy in marriage, home and children, even of healthful sleep. It can diminish our work satisfaction. Nationwide, it can lead to loss of manpower in the work force, as well as accidents at home, in the workplace, or on the road.

Among the many causes of tiredness, we can list, first, the physical. Many people are chronically tired because of structural misalignments (spine, shoulders, pelvis, neck out of place) of which they are unaware. These may date back to birth or be the result of later accidents. The treatment of such disabilities comes into the realm of the osteopath, chiropractor, or physiotherapist.

Other causes of tiredness may be gathered under the heading of chemical. Here belong such things as food and other allergies, glandular malfunctions, immunological breakdown, dietary excesses and deficiencies. Many people believe their diets to be adequate and moderate, when in fact they are not. All these maladjustments can be successfully treated by the nutritionist, naturopath, homoeopath or acupuncturist.
The third group of factors responsible for tiredness may be broadly classified as mental. This does not mean that they are imaginary. They are only too real. They include emotional states that may affect digestion, general behaviour, sexual potency, sleep patterns. Nowadays, stress clinics are set up to help people suffering from these disorders. Treatments include training in relaxation, hypnotherapy, meditation, development of positive attitudes and the cultivation of better habits of thought: the psychologist, the minister of religion (whatever creed), and the group therapist, all have a part to play here.

Of course, all three categories listed above may overlap and interlace. For instance, a long standing emotional state may be rectified by a simple neck adjustment.

In this book, Leonie McMahon gives us the benefit of her encyclopaedic knowledge and clinical experience of fifty years. There is so much you can do to help yourself regain and maintain your energy, given expert guidance as well as actual treatment.

Leonie, you are a wonder! You not only have helped thousands of people in Australia with your knowledge, experience and generosity, but now you are reaching out to people around the globe. How can we thank you enough?!!

This book (I have the hard copy as well) is a font of valuable information. If you have ever had one of those days when you didn't feel your best, then this book is definitely for you! Every chapter is packed with information on what is going on in your body as well as what to do about it. The front cover says, "An easy practical self-help guide". How true, how true!

If you don't have a copy of this book, get it now! And, if you do, then you already know what a gem Leonie McMahon has given us. Kudos to you, Leonie. And to the rest of you, what are you waiting for? Get it now whilst the price is right!

Why Am I So Tired?

NO ONE HAS EXPLAINED WHY MY BODY FEELS LIKE IT IS RUNNING AT HALF PACE BEFORE. SIMPLY COMMON SENSE, YET AMAZING INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN TO ADULTS WITH SUGGESTIONS WE REALLY SHOULD KNOW TO CHANGE OUR ENERGY. I CAN SEE THE HABITS THAT ARE "AGING" MY BODY UNNECESSARILY AND I NOW UNDERSTAND HOW I WILL GET HELP TO CHANGE. IT HAS MADE ME THINK OF THE RIGHT QUESTIONS TO ASK AND GET THE MOST FROM MY HEALTH WORKER. I WISH LEONIE WAS RIGHT HERE TO FIX UP ALL THE ISSUES I NOW KNOW NEED FIXING TO REGAIN MY ENERGY.
I LOVE THIS BOOK! THANK YOU SO MUCH LEONIE.

Common sense combined with years of knowledge and experience provides the right answers to the questions we ask our doctors who only answer with pills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Experience counts! July 21, 2013
By Bronwyn
Verified Purchase
It is wonderful to see a book from an author, who not only has fifty years of clinical experience, but has experience from several different health practitioner modalities and life and can incorporate solutions from these different modalities in one place to help people like us with chronic, unrelenting tiredness so we don't have to read several books to get the same information. The information is easy to read, easy to understand and absorb and all in one place. Experience DOES count!! Thank you Leonie!!

This book delves deeply into causes of a modern epidemic. Just by reading the first 2 chapters I knew I had to continue reading because I was captivated by so many aspects of what this author had already written. I loved the book because there are many changes that i can make in my life and none are difficult to achieve more energy.
