Our host this week is Rebekah @ She Seeks Nonfiction and the topic is Worldview Changers:
“One of the greatest things about reading nonfiction is learning all kinds of things about our world which you never would have known without it. There’s the intriguing, the beautiful, the appalling, and the profound. What nonfiction book or books has impacted the way you see the world in a powerful way? Do you think there is one book that everyone needs to read for a better understanding of the world we live in?”
Change Your Mind Heal Your Body – Anna Parkinson

I read this book a few years back, and it changed my life. Anna had an inoperable brain tumour that she healed.
With the power of Thought and Importance of letting go of hurt – she healed herself.
I wrote a blog post on this a few years ago – you can read it here
It was the game changer for me, the life changer, the world view changer (I guess). The biggest take away was understanding how utterly important it is to let go of pain – even if it still hurts.
It was from this book I started to write ‘let go’ statements and ‘sending out’ good wishes to those who I needed to.
Let me know if you want me to the Self Mastery Challenge again in 2022 Christmas? or Soon ish. I have been thinking about it – it seems long overdue.
Educated – Tara Westover.

Okay , Sorry , I keep mentioning this memoir.
Okay, why is it a world view changer for me.
She got to Cambridge without any real proper education or upbring.
Call it kismet, faith, luck or unlock. Her upbring in the 2000’s, in a modern country, yet the families thoughts were unconventional could have easily lead her life in a completely different direction.
But, from where to where she landed in Cambridge.
The learning is for me
- Traditional routes are not necessary
- No access to books or anything – but still did it
- People’s opinions don’t matter if they are not helpful. It is essential to see that. Understand that. Learn to see clearly.
- Don’t be deterred by society and family.
- Being Naive and unworldly can be very helpful.
Drug Muggers – Suzy Cohen

I wrote a blog post about this a while back – you can read it here
Unless you read it, or someone tells you, or you are curious, it is not mainstream news.
For example, the common diabetes drug Metformin will rob you of B12, as well as fixing your diabeties (well!!).
The B vitamins are essential for a healthy nervous system and more.
The copy of the book I have I brought in 2015, I don’t know if she has updated it. The only issue with the book is not all the drugs are found in the UK. Never the less it is important to know all drugs will rob you of and essential vitamin. Knowing this will mean you can take supplements or eat food rich in that vitamin.
Best of course is not to fall ill and stay healthy and physically fit -but!!
So that concludes my last entry for Nonfiction November 2022. It was the first time I took part in it- because I had never heard of it before. I have to say it was most enjoyable. I am not sure I did any of the weeks accurately, but I think it is the taking part and meeting the community that really makes it worthwhile and inspiring.
Adding to MY TBR
So is the first time I have taken part in Nonfiction in November. The last week of this month is to say what books recommendation from other bloggers taking part in Nonfiction November you will be adding to your TBR? My TBR is too large already and as much as I want to add a couple of books from all the books listed, I won’t be! Sorry!
