Free Community Event with Dr. Martha Lindsay!!
Dr. Martha Lindsay graduated from Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1979. For 21 years she practiced conventional medicine & surgery in small animals, avian and exotics at the Andover Animal Hospital in Andover, Massachusetts. In 2000, she began working in behavior medicine for New England Veterinary Behavior Associates in Lexington, Massachusetts. She was Certified by the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy in 2006, and by 2008, she had completed the Advanced Clinical Training in Nutrition Response TestingSM. Dr. Martha then spent 3 years for her certification in Whole Health Nutrition Education. She co-owns Alternative Veterinary Services LLC (AVS) in North Andover with her husband. AVS was created because they had repeatedly seen the limitations of standard medications in over 20 years of conventional small animal practice.
What is homeopathy? Originating from the ancient Egyptians, Chinese, Incas, Aztecs and Native Americans, it is based on the principle of “like cures like”. Meaning that if a substance given to a healthy individual can cause symptoms, then if it is given in minute doses to a sick individual with exactly matching symptoms, the individual will become healthy.
Evaluating a sick animal includes noting physical symptoms from a complete physical examination, mental and emotional symptoms, exercise habits, environmental influences (including toxins as well as stressful situations) and diet. All previous medical records are reviewed and sometimes additional tests are recommended as well before therapeutic recommendations are made.
Conventional (or allopathic) Western medicine treats isolated symptoms in an ill animal but does not address the underlying susceptibility of that patient to develop disease. The goal of homeopathy is to treat the patient’s symptoms but also to develop the strength of good health to resist disease in the future.
Come join Dr. Martha to learn & ask questions about this amazing holistic alternative to treat your pet! She will also provide a series of handouts to enable attendees to do first aid homeopathy at home!
