When his 11-year-old Lhasa Apso, Fergie, was diagnosed with lymphoma, a deadly cancer, Dr. Steven Eisen decided not to rely on standard veterinary care but to apply his own specialist expertise to the case and to treat his dog holistically. He knew from his prior research that a skillfully tailored diet, plus natural supplements, would often achieve cures without the downsides of conventional medicine. His instincts were validated: Fergie was restored to health, confounding her vet's prognosis that she would live no more than six weeks by surviving for almost two and a half years and reaching normal life expectancy for her breed. Dog Cancer: The Holistic Answer describes in detail the broad protocol Dr. Eisen used to rescue Fergie from her death sentence and explains how to customize it for your own dog. While acknowledging that each owner must make a personal decision on the relative merits of conventional and holistic approaches, he presents a powerful case for questioning the use of toxic, invasive, and high-priced methods that too often end in grief. Unlike most books on dog cancer treatments, which are overstuffed and overwhelming to the average dog owner, this guide is tightly focused on the need to act wisely right away. In just 80 pages, Dr. Eisen clearly explains the five steps of the healing protocol, beginning with the elimination of toxins from the body, from the immediate environment, and from every item the dog consumes; continuing with the easy preparation of an anti-cancer diet; then moving on to immune enhancement, enzyme therapy, and the use of vitamins, herbs, and other supplements. The totality of information compiled by Dr. Eisen cannot currently be found in any other single source. Certain key transformative supplements, for example, are overlooked by every other book surveying the range of holistic options. For dog owners seeking a benign, proven approach to the healing of their pets' cancer, this is the indispensable roadmap.

The Definitive Holistic Medicine Guide to Caring for Your Dog and Cat
Author: Martin Goldstein, D.V.M.
Pubpsher: Ballantine Books
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. 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. From the Hardcover edition.
