Dr. Doug’s Holistic Message Reaches Sweden

, ,


I’m excited to announce that my fist book, Stand by Me: A Holistic Handbook for Animals, Their People and the Lives They Share Together, has been translated into Swedish! Yes, apparently the people of Sweden were excited by what they read and wanted to make the book more accessible to their countrymen and women. (Somehow I think the title is not an exact translation though).

This is a very unique book that addresses how to live a holistic lifestyle with your pet (dog or cat) throughout the various phases of life from birth to death. Many people have found the chapter on death and dying especially helpful and meaningful. In it I discuss the many difficult decisions we all face when we near the end of a pet’s life and how to deal with the inevitable grief.

A theme that runs through the book is the work of Edgar Cayce, considered by many to be the father of holistic medicine in the US. Before his death in the 1940s, Edgar Cayce founded the Association for Research and Enlightenment (ARE). You can find more information about this organization that continues to research the work of Edgar Cayce here.

I told my friends in Sweden to let me know when my book goes to number one on their best sellers list and I’ll swing over for a book tour. (I’m not holding my breath on that one). From my perspective, if even one person is comforted or finds something helpful from my work then it has all been worthwhile.

Stand by Me was originally published in 2003 and is currently out of print. But, I’ve squirreled away a few copies. The original price was $14.95. If you are interested in getting your hands on one, email me from this site and I’ll mail you a copy for $8.00 including shipping.

If you’ve read the book please let me know here what you thought of it.

    Dr. Knueven, I’d like to receive a copy of this book. I have one of your other books and would love to add this to my library. I don’t have to have it mailed, as I have an appointment next Monday.

    Thank you,
    Micki Handte

    I would love to have a copy of your book. As a sidenote, my late Mom was way ahead of her time when it came to holistic ways. I am 57 years old now, and I remember sprouting my own sprouts when I was 4! It wasn’t easy to find all the healthy and natural products that are available now. She was a staunch follower of Edgar Cayce. I haven’t come across his name since she passed away in 1993. It brought back happy thoughts of her, tho. I was hoping to come to you for holistic care for my little terrier, Lucy, but our schedules just didn’t jive. I did find someone a bit closer who does VOM. Took her for her first visit last week. She perked up! Wish us luck….I’m a huge fan of yours, and always open any e-mail that comes from you! Be well, and keep up your incredible work!

    I am so happy to hear that! I loved reading that book, and it’s definitely a keeper! I’m very glad that more people will have an opportunity to read it. I’m also glad to know that there are copies still available. This is one of those books that is better with each reading.

    Dear Dr. Doug, I would like a copy of the book in case there is still one left.
    Maybe we can translate it into German as well 🙂

    Have a fantastic day

    Hi Dr Doug,

    I would LOVE a copy of your book Stand By Me, if you happen to still have one available?

    I purchased your book: The Holistic Health Guide, from Amazon and have thoroughly enjoyed it! Truly one of the best books I have come across! It has been especially helpful to me as I am working at ZYTO to bring our Bio-Energetic testing software (currently used in the human holistic space) to help our furry friends in the pet space. So exciting to have your books as references as I am learning so much! Thank you for your wisdom and all that you share!

    Please let me know how I may pay the $8 plus shipping?

    Alternately — if you will be at the upcoming AHVMA conference I see… ? I will also be there and would love to meet you and pay in person?

    All the best!
    Camille Bauer

    Would love to get a copy of your book! Could you please tell me how I could go about getting one? I have three dogs and I am hoping to learn about a healthier approach to taking care of them. Thank you in advance!
