The Nature of Animal Healing – Dr. Martin Goldstein (also www.drmarty.com)
As an accomplished doctor of veterinary medicine, Martin Goldstein is well respected for his 25 years worth of experience in the field–experience he effectively utilizes in conjunction with his expertise in holistic medicine in his new book, The Nature of Animal Healing: The Path to Your Pet’s Health, Happiness, and Longevity. Goldstein begins with a broad explanation of the origins of diseases in pets, then moves on to taking action against those diseases, not only offering thorough discussions of specific ailments–including cancer, allergies, and arthritis–and the holistic medicines available to help in the healing process, but also speaking to the “dubious legacy of vaccines” as well as the questionable quality of pet food. Finally, Goldstein turns his attention to the spiritual realm, addressing both the bonds that we have with our pets–and how those bonds aid in preventing and fighting our pets’ health problems–as well as dealing with the death of a beloved pet. Goldstein’s expert advice, inclusion of inspiring real-life cases, and thorough resource “compendium of holistic books, newsletters, Web sites, veterinarians, and associations” make this book a valuable addition to any pet owner’s library. –Julia King
