The Conscious Cat
DOG CARE: A Complete Guide to Holistic Health Care for Dogs
by Celeste Yarnall, Ph.D
Yarnall examines nutrition as preventative medicine, vitamin and
mineral supplements, herbal remedies, and homeopathic treatments
for dogs. Also included are charts, a disease repertory, materia
medica, a vitamin mineral guide, and much more!
Yarnall has written an exceptionally profound book for dog lovers.
If the health of your dog is important to you, then this book is
a must-read. Many of the dietary concepts described by Celeste are
based upon ongoing research we have done with humans over the past
fourteen years, investigating how food controls hormonal responses.
These food-derived hormonal responses for mammals have remained
fairly constant for the past forty million years and will not change
in the near future. This is why dietary recommendations for humans
can be translated for dogs ... Celeste has done an outstanding job
of making this translation in an easy-to-read-format.
