Publisher's summary

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 audiobook, 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.

Dr. Goldstein also turns to the spiritual realm, addressing how the emotional bonds we form with our animals have the power to provoke and cure disease. In his smart, helpful, and comforting style, he tells us how to deal with the inevitable death of a pet - both physically and psychologically.

Finally, there is an indispensable source guide: a complete listing of pet health-care centers, doctors, and products. So wherever you live, you will be able to act on the advice and recommendations you are sure to take to heart.

The Nature of Animal Healing is a revolutionary guide that no pet owner should be without.

Critic reviews

"The Nature of Animal Healing gives you chapter and verse on how to help your pet live a long, happy and healthy life. Dr. Goldstein's book is essential for all pet owners and highly recommended for all pet lovers." (Dr. Andrew Weil)

"I'm as passionate about animals as I am about basketball. And Dr. Marty is the Michael Jordan of pet care. He has cured my dog of serious hip problems and made me a believer in his visionary style of medical treatment. I recommend this book for anyone who cares about the health and longevity of his or her pet." (Ernie Grunfeld; president/general manager of the New York Knicks)

"Martin Goldstein explores on a deep level the relationship between animals, humans and healing. He courageously steps out on the thin ice of controversy and says 'no disease is incurable.' This book is about his love and commitment to pets, their owners, and health." (Martin DeAngelis, DVM; Village Animal Clinic; Ardsley, NY)
