About the Book

Part love story of one woman’s extraordinary relationship with her animal companion, part philosophical examination of the special relationship between humans and dogs, and part exploration of the expanding field of modern integrative veterinary medicine, Soulmate Dog takes readers gently through the messiness of grieving the loss of a beloved animal companion with the story of Michelle Slater and her dog, Brady.

By Michelle B. Slater, Ph.D.

You will love Brady and his soulmate, Michelle. Their journey together—one filled with joy and pain and, ultimately, transformative triumph—will inspire you to be a more grateful, mindful, courageous and loving human.”

– Sy Montgomery, author of How to Be A Good Creature

Michelle’s dog Brady became seriously ill at the age of five (and, according to his veterinarians, should not have survived). Searching for answers, Michelle turned to the growing field of animal communication. Animal communicators argue that anyone can be coached to listen, understand, and respond to animals. Through training with Debbie McGillivray in the art of animal communication, Michelle became semi-fluent in the language of dogs. As a result of their extraordinary conversations, Michelle shares in Soulmate Dog how Brady transformed the way she sees animals–as well as how we as humans love and grieve, and live day-to-day with our animals.

Humans are illiterate not just about grief, but about love and daily communication. Love (and then grief) for our pets resides in a place that human vocabulary doesn’t exist for; the language of dogs, as taught to Michelle by Brady, makes the love we have for our pets even stronger.

About the Book

There is hope for recovery from Lyme disease and other chronic illnesses

In Starving to Heal in Siberia, Dr. Michelle Slater takes us on her journey from her bed, where she was sidelined much of the time, to Siberia, where she was cured of the debilitating effects of advanced Lyme disease. After a years-long struggle with extreme chronic fatigue, brain fog, joint pain, and other mysterious symptoms that ultimately prevented her from teaching and doing simple tasks like reading and driving, Michelle began considering assisted suicide. She had tried every known treatment, from aggressive allopathic methods to holistic remedies, without success. In a last-ditch effort to save her life, she found a radical alternative treatment offered by the world’s leading expert on dry fasting and traveled to Siberia to give it a chance.

Starving to Heal in Siberia is both a moving and insightful memoir of recovery from devastating chronic illness and a practical guide to the science and psychology behind safely dry fasting. If you are curious about intermittent fasting and the research on dry fasting, this book offers compelling and useful information. If you are a doctor who has had to tell your patients to adjust to the chronic symptoms of an autoimmune disorder that didn’t dissipate under your best care, this book offers new hope. And if you struggle with chronic illness or love someone who does, this book is an antidote to despair. Michelle’s thoughtful account of her wellness journey provides similarly afflicted readers with the tools and encouragement to begin their own.
