The Nature of Animal Healing

Martin Goldstein DVM




Product Description:
The Nature of Animal Healing is a groundbreaking, inspirational contribution to animal care. Dr. Martin Goldstein, one of the most successful and best-known holistic veterinarians in the country, offers here, for the first time, invaluable insights into how to give our pets a healthy, happy, and long life.
Dr. Goldstein--a graduate of the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine who runs a renowned clinic in South Salem, New York--begins by explaining his approach to alternative treatment: what it is, how it works, and why it's especially important that animals be treated holistically. Holistic pet care essentially revolves around the notion that the best way to cure an animal who is ill is to help the animal cure itself. We are not the true healers of our pets--they are. By treating the root of the problem instead of its symptoms, holistic medicine enables our pets to regain and maintain their own health.
In this comprehensive and accessible book, Dr. Goldstein not only shares his philosophy of how animals should--must--be treated, but also shows us exactly what to do. With moving and often entertaining examples from his years of practice, he offers prescriptive advice for the pet lover of every stripe: why we shouldn't feed our animals commercial pet food; why vaccines can actually do more harm than good; how acupuncture and homeopathic medicine can be used to help our pets; why pets need to experience a "healing crisis" in order to get well; and much, much more.
In his practice, Dr. Goldstein has had extraordinary success treating cancer and leukemia. Here, he begins to decipher the riddle of those killer diseases and shows us how best to treat them, as well as how to prevent them from occurring. Included is the exhaustive "Alphabet of Ailments," a list that tackles common afflictions one by one--the most useful guide ever published in a book on animal care.

The Arthritis Cure for Pets

Brian Beale & Brenda Adderly

Product Description:
"In this book you will learn how to give your arthritic pet a new lease on life--with a low-cost, readily available, over-the-counter treatment without side effects.

In 1997 The Arthritis Cure swept the country. The book describes a potent and effective combination of nutritional supplements that halt, reverse, and even cure the pain of arthritis. That revolutionary program was originally developed to treat animals.

New York Times science writer Jane Brody learned of the cure from her veterinarian and tried it on her eleven-year-old dog. She was so impressed with the results that she tried it on ,herself-with gratifying results. Dateline NBC has subsequently reported that both Brody and her dog had remain mobile and virtually arthritis-free.

Twenty million dogs and thirteen million cats in America are likely to suffer from osteoarthritis before the end of their lives. At least a third of these animals are in pain right now. Veterinarian Brian Beale and health writer Brenda Adderly show concerned pet owners that arthritis need no longer ruin the lives of their animal companions. The Arthritis Cure for Pets will soothe far more than aching joints; it will relieve the pain of watching the helpless suffer. Osteoarthritis in animals is a ravaging disease whose solution is all too often painkillers with serious side effects, surgery, or in extreme cases a merciful death. This book explains the disease, its causes and prevention, and how the science behind the Arthritis Cure for Pets works. The authors discuss which animals tend to be more prone to arthritis and why, outline a complete program that includes diet and exercise, and describe exactly how to administer the easily obtainable supplements, vitamins, and minerals that make up The Arthritis Cure for Pets. At last, here is the painless, low-cost, natural cure that countless pet owners have been waiting for.   Information provided by

Rudy Edalati

Product Description:
Canine Cooking That Will Have Them Begging for More
Which do you think your dog would prefer: dry kibble, mushy canned food, or a nice, nutritionally sound helping of Tuna Togetherness? Not surprisingly, most dogs would be happier -- and healthier -- with the latter, considering the dangerous preservatives, questionable ingredients, and mysterious flavoring agents often used in commercial dog food.

She includes not only fun everyday meals, but healing meals for specific health problems, as well as special diets for different life stages, such as:
* Lo Mein Barking Style: the doggie alternative for Chinese takeout
* Beef Puppy Food: just the right mix for a growing dog
* Davie's Juicy Jiggly-Wiggly Anemia Diet: a blood-boosting dish of liver, rice, and spinach
Barker's Grub is informative (there's lots of canine nutritional information to chew on), inspiring, and just plain fun. The recipes are simple and quick -- after all, it's not just about health and longevity, it's about making the most of the time you and your dog spend together.

and Healing for Horses

Mary L. Brennan

From Library Journal
The popularity of homeopathic medicine has found its way into veterinary practice, and many horse owners are using alternative techniques to keep their animals healthy without relying on pharmaceuticals. Brennan (The Natural Dog) is a competitive dressage rider and a veterinarian who runs a holistic practice in Atlanta. She uses a variety of treatments, including acupuncture, chiropractic, herbs, oils, Bach Flower remedies, and nutrition, but she is willing to incorporate more traditional remedies into her practice when necessary. Covered here are horse care basics: stable management, feeding, exercise and conditioning, tack and equipment, and first aid and healthcare. Brennan also presents many case studies from her own practice, often indicating that alternative treatments proved successful where conventional methods had been ineffective. With a thorough index and a handy A-Z guide to common horse ailments, this well-organized book will be of interest to all horse owners, especially those seeking a more natural approach to healthcare.

Equine Massage

Jean-Pierre Hourdebaigt

Product Description:
People in the horse world know all too well that performance horses, like human athletes, are trained, fed and cared for so they can go faster, jump higher and run longer. Daily training and competing can result in injuries, aches and pains, which if treated by drugs alone may only mask the problem and not remedy it. This is why equine massage therapist Jean-Pierre Hourdebaigt created a program of techniques that will enable owners and riders, trainers and grooms to:
  • Alleviate soreness and pain in the horse's most vulnerable stress sites.
  • Identify and treat the injuries common to any horse sport.
  • Use relaxation and maintenance routines for the horse's mental and physical well-being.
Hourdebaigt provides step-by-step instruction and more than 150 photographs and diagrams so that everyone—including nonprofessionals—can learn to massage their horse. Equine Massage may be the key to unlocking the door to a horse's future, one that promises good health and improved performance.
