Complementary and Alternative Veterinary Medicine Considered is a book that belongs in your veterinary library. If you are a veterinarian wondering if you should incorporate complementary and alternative veterinary medicine (CAVM) into your practice, if you have recently hired an associate eager to try such things as acupuncture or homeopathy, or if you have clients asking you about chiropractic, herbal, or magnetic field therapy for their pets, you'll want to understand the history, science and ethics behind such therapies. In its 2001 Guidelines for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) recognizes the growing interest in CAVM, and encourages the critical examination of these therapies using the scientific method. Following the AVMA's lead on this subject, Complementary and Alternative Veterinary Medicine Considered thoroughly examines a variety of CAVM therapies and asks important questions regarding alternative treatments. For example, is acupuncture effective in pain relief? What is homeopathy? What is the history behind chiropractic? What does the research say (and not say) about various CAVM modalities? And, just as importantly, what are the ethical and regulatory considerations concerning such therapies? This book has the answers to those questions and more. Complementary and Alternative Veterinary Medicine Considered will help practicing veterinarians to make informed decisions about specific CAVM therapies. This text evaluates various prevalent therapies, and will give veterinarians the ethical and scientific bases they need to make sound decisions regarding CAVM therapies Coverage includes but is not limited to: * Acupuncture and acupressure; * Energy medicine; * Manual therapy (chiropractic); * Manual therapy (massage); * Magnetic and electromagnetic therapy; * Laser and light therapy; * Homeopathy; and * Herbal therapy.

While the number of books published on the use of herbs for human healthcare has skyrocketed, information on their use for animals has lagged behind. This is especially true for our larger companion animals such as horses. Two of my former students, Stacey Small and Andrea Baldwin have teamed up to create an Equine Herbal, that gives veterinarians, herbalists, horse owners and trainers the needed knowledge to help prevent and treat the ills common to these amazing animals. I am proud of their effort to bring healing and good health to this neglected area of herbal medicine. David Winston, RH (AHG) Stacey and Andrea have done a great job of putting together a book that will be a mainstay of equine literature for a long time. Thank you both for doing this. Joyce Harman DVM, MRCVS This is the book I have been waiting for. Finally, someone has put all the known information on our favorite herbs in one convenient place. In this comprehensive text you can find the physical action of an herb as well as how it is used in homeopathy, flower essences, and aromatherapy with specifics on use in horses. Most importantly, is the focus on the energetics of herbs. The energy of an herb affects how it interacts in the body and with other herbs. In my opinion, using an herb without understanding its energetic nature is like trying to play a game without a rulebook. Considering the energetics of an herb, like rules in a playbook, facilitates harmony towards a common goal rather than individual forces acting randomly or against each other. Congratulations to the authors for a job well done. Madalyn Ward, DVM and author of Holistic Horsekeeping and Horse Harmony If you want to use nature's medicines to keep your horse healthy, buy this book! Stacey and Andrea have created a much needed reference work complete with herbal safety, methods of use, dosage, and the most importantly the essential energetics of each herb according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. As a doctor of oriental medicine, this is my go-to book for working with my two mares.... a great addition to the library of anyone interested in holistic equine healthcare. Barbara Thurman, DOM, AP, CCT Truly a holistic approach - encouraging the reader to learn and understand the actions and interactions of herbal use with horses. Mary Ann Simonds, MA - Author, Educator, Equine Ecologist Through much of my career as an integrative veterinary medicine practitioner, Stacey Small has been my "go to" for really practical, accurate, understandable information about herbal remedies. Her passion for learning and research, and her talent for education have made her knowledge base something we all want more of! And here it is, in a beautifully written and organized book that everyone can own! Thank you Stacey and Andrea; the horse's thank you! Judith Shoemaker, DVM

Healthcare professionals, including doctors, pharmacists and nurses, are often confronted with patients who use over–the–counter (OTC) herbal medicinal products and food supplements. While taking responsibility for one s own health and treatment options is encouraged, many patients use these products based on limited (and sometimes inaccurate) information from non–scientific sources, such as the popular press and internet. There is a clear need to offer balanced, well–informed advice to patients, yet a number of studies have shown that, generally, conventionally trained health practitioners consider their knowledge about herbal medicinal products and supplements to be weak. Phytopharmacy fills this knowledge gap, and is intended for use by the busy pharmacist, nurse, or doctor, as well as the expert patient and students of pharmacy and herbal medicine. It presents clear, practical and concise monographs on over a hundred popular herbal medicines and plant–based food supplements. Information provided in each monograph includes: Indications Summary and appraisal of clinical and pre–clinical evidence Potential interactions Contraindications Possible adverse effects An overview of the current regulatory framework is also outlined, notably the EU Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products Directive. This stipulates that only licensed products or registered traditional herbal medicinal products (THRs), which have assured quality and safety, can now legally be sold OTC. Monographs are included of most of the major herbal ingredients found in THRs, and also some plant–based food supplements, which while not strictly medicines, may also have the potential to exert a physiological effect.

Animals / Mind Body Spirit Millions of family pets, often otherwise physically fit and healthy, are put to death every year to give human companions peace and rest from their incontinence, unruliness, excessive noisiness, aggression, possessiveness, destructiveness or other inconvenience. A behavior problem often becomes a ‘terminal disease’. Indeed euthanasia for behavior problems is the main cause of death in young animals, and many people regard it as a treatment. The high cost of veterinary attention also results in many animals being discarded or neglected by their owners. The consequent price of animal suffering, and cost of human regrets and need for welfare services, are incalculable.They are also avoidable. Correcting the behavior problem often saves an animal’s life as effectively as surgery or other medical procedures, and greatly reduces the suffering of all concerned. It does not require expensive behavior therapy or extensive behavior modification on the part of the owner. It can be brought about in many cases quite simply and inexpensively through the use of flower essences. This book offers descriptions of each of the 38 Bach Flower Remedies, and their application to the treatment of a range of domestic animals, including horses and farm, wild and zoo animals. It also describes diagnostic symptoms, animal by animal, together with appropriate treatment regimens, illustrated with case material obtained from veterinarians, animal behavior specialists and health practitioners. Other important and helpful areas discussed are: • emotions in animals and their influence on behavior • the emotional bond between animals and humans • the pros and cons of thinking of animals in human terms • the principles of flower remedies and their suitability for usein the treatment of animals. Helen Graham was a Lecturer at Keele University, England, and is the author of several books on psychology and complementary medicine. She breeds Salukis, and lives in rural France with her husband. Gregory Vlamis is a researcher and author of bestseller Bach Flower Remedies to the Rescue. He has been researching the life and work of Dr. Edward Bach since the early 1970s, and divides his time between the USA and Greece.

Chance continues to govern our lives in the 21st Century. From the genes we inherit and the environment into which we are born, to the lottery ticket we buy at the local store, much of life is a gamble. In business, education, travel, health, and marriage, we take chances in the hope of obtaining something better. Chance colors our lives with uncertainty, and so it is important to examine it and try to understand about how it operates in a number of different circumstances. Such understanding becomes simpler if we take some time to learn a little about probability, since probability is the natural language of uncertainty. This second edition of Chance Rules again recounts the story of chance through history and the various ways it impacts on our lives. Here you can read about the earliest gamblers who thought that the fall of the dice was controlled by the gods, as well as the modern geneticist and quantum theory researcher trying to integrate aspects of probability into their chosen speciality. Example included in the first addition such as the infamous Monty Hall problem, tossing coins, coincidences, horse racing, birthdays and babies remain, often with an expanded discussion, in this edition. Additional material in the second edition includes, a probabilistic explanation of why things were better when you were younger, consideration of whether you can use probability to prove the existence of God, how long you may have to wait to win the lottery, some court room dramas, predicting the future, and how evolution scores over creationism. Chance Rules lets you learn about probability without complex mathematics.
