Hunde sind gut für die Gesundheit - das ist schon länger bekannt. Aber wussten Sie, dass sie auch ganz konkret Krebs, Herzinfarkten und Demenz vorbeugen können? Dass Kinder, die mit Hunden aufwachsen, weniger unter Allergien und Asthma leiden oder Hunde selbst schwere Erkrankungen wie Parkinson, Alzheimer oder bösartige Tumore bessern können? Dr. Milena Penkowa legt detailliert dar, wie, warum und wann Hunde der kürzeste Weg zu besserer Gesundheit und Widerstandskraft und damit zu einem stress- und krankheitsfreien Leben sind. Auch wenn sie sich dabei auf streng wissenschaftliche Fakten stützt, ist das Buch ein echter Lesegenuss: Die aktuellen und zum Teil revolutionären Forschungsergebnisse führen uns deutlich vor Augen, wie eng miteinander verbunden Hund und Mensch nicht nur auf kulturhistorischer oder emotionaler, sondern auch auf biologischer Ebene sind. Hunde tun gut - wissenschaftlich erwiesen!

What if you could significantly improve your physical and mental health by taking a simple step that’s easy, rewarding, and fun? Dr. Milena Penkowa says you can do that and more by owning a dog – and yet people continue to invest time and money in costly treatments before even considering a furry friend. Dogs can stave off diseases and certain cancers, erase pain, and ease anxiety, depression, allergies, diabetes, and cardiovascular disorders. Over the long term, they can also reduce the burden of dementia, epilepsy, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia and autism. This guidebook explains the scientifically proven benefits of dogs, and you’ll learn how dogs: • change the human brain so it reacts and thinks differently; • improve the immune system to make you more resilient than dog deprived individuals; • boost and invigorate the human spirit and secure happiness; • promote a life of longevity and healthiness. Stop looking for fancy remedies to physical and mental problems, and start looking for a dog wagging its tail. Tap into a natural method to survive and thrive by learning about the fascinating connections between Dogs & Human Health.
