    Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterised by pain in the muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Other symptoms include fatigue, sleep problems, allergies, anxiety, irritable bowel syndrome, headaches, morning stiffness, and problems with short-term memory and concentration. Increasing recognition of fibromyalgia means that diagnosis and treatment are increasingly likely, but self-help is still key.

    There have been countless attempts to solve the brutal murders committed by Jack the Ripper more than 100 years ago. It seems that almost everyone has their own theory and their own suspect, ranging from the reasonably likely to the entirely preposterous. What this most famous of British criminal cases has always required is a professional eye to analyse it with all the benefits of modern investigate techniques. Now that has been provided in the shape of the man most qualified to solve the case: former British murder-squad detective Trevor Marriott.

    This book - which put Liverpool on the paranormal map - is about ghosts - whatever they are. Every culture has believed in ghosts at one time or another: Buddha trained himself to overcome fear by sitting in a haunted cemetery. Spooky tales are not just a contemporary phenomenon - there are several ghosts mentioned in the Old Testament. In the course of a person's lifetime, the chances of encountering a ghost are surprisingly high.

    Osteoporosis affects around three million people in the UK, and bone loss can begin as early as the late teens and early 20s. Broken bones due to osteoporosis mean that the disease is at a very advanced stage, and, while doctors can help greatly with modern drugs, some damage is irreversible. But, equally, early attention can prevent osteoporosis getting to this crippling stage, often for decades. This book looks at the best ways to keep bones young, strong and healthy, with advice on diet, exercise and lifestyle.

    Living with heart failure may sound like a contradiction in terms, but, contrary to popular myth, the heart does not fail, or stop, but labours on under increasing disadvantages. An estimated 900,000 people are currently living with heart failure in the UK, a figure which is set to increase as the population ages. Heart failure also affects an estimated 14 million Europeans and nearly five million Americans.

    Some 4.5 million people in the UK suffer from tinnitus which may range from the well-known ringing in the ears to musical hallucinations. Often associated with the elderly, it can occur at any age, even in quite young children. The sound itself is as individual as the person suffering with it, but common descriptions include a whistle, a whine, a high-pitch ringing or a buzzing. Tinnitus can be a far more troublesome symptom than hearing loss itself, affecting sleep, concentration, confidence, and mood.

    Macular Degeneration is a leading cause of failing sight in old people. The disease causes deterioration of the macula, the central area of the retina. While new treatments such as photodynamic therapy (PDT) and laser treatment give hope, unfortunately the condition is often not treatable. This book explains what happens when the eye is affected by macular degeneration, the symptoms, aids and appliances. It also suggests organisations to contact and further advice.
