Dr. Martin Goldstein (Dr. Marty) is considered by many experts - and thousands of satisfied clients - to be America?s foremost holistic veterinarian. The results he has achieved have been so astounding that today critically ill dogs and cats from all over the world are brought to Smith Ridge Veterinary Center where doctors trained by Dr. Marty give these animals a new chance at life and health. Many people who arrive have exhausted all of the available conventional treatment options and are faced with a very sick pet who is only getting worse; others are true-believers in a holistic-only approach to maintaining their animal?s health or treating their animal?s malady. Regardless of their reason for seeking care, they usually receive a mind-opening education about natural health that many ultimately apply to their own lives as well as to the lives of their animal companions.
Holistic medicine does not truly define how Dr. Marty thinks about or practices veterinary medicine. The simple idea he has brought to the profession is the powerful curative effect of combining the best of both conventional and holistic medicine. The term used is ?integrative medicine? where both types of therapies are combined in a collaboration for health and against disease.
Through his book, The Nature of Animal Healing, he provides advice on a wide range of practical topics central to a pet?s health including why we shouldn't feed our animals commercial pet food or why vaccines can actually do more harm than good. When it is time to consider alternative therapies, the doctors he has trained at Smith Ridge Veterinary Center, where he is Medical Director, can successfully integrate treatments such as herbal medicine and homeopathic approaches along with the latest in high-technology medicine into an overall program for the sick animal. They handle every imaginable type of condition and they have earned a reputation for extraordinary success treating cancer and other serious degenerative diseases that are rapidly on the rise among animals as well as humans. Dr. Marty has been and continues to be on the forefront of deciphering the riddle of those killer diseases in order to show us how best to treat them, as well as how to prevent them from occurring.
Dr. Marty will hold two seminars at the park on September 29 and 30.
