Overview

The Essential Guide to Building Your Natural Defenses

Bacterial infections are on the rise, and pharmaceutical antibiotics are increasingly powerless to stop them. Pathogenic bacteria are tenacious survivors; they outsmart modern medicine and become virulent "superbugs," resistant to antibiotics and increasingly deadly.

Stephen Harrod Buhner offers conclusive evidence that plant medicines, with their complex mix of multiple antibiotic, systemic, and synergistic compounds, should be our first line of defense against resistant infections. His indispensable reference explains the roots of antibiotic resistance, explores the value of herbal treatments, and provides in-depth profiles of the most reliably effective herbs, giving you the confidence to identify the best herbal formulas and make medicines yourself.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“In this timely book, Buhner reveals that plants are the people’s medicine, possessing attributes that pharmaceuticals never will.”

“Humans have misused antibiotics to the point that these drugs are becoming worthless. In Herbal Antibiotics, Buhner argues that by turning to plants for healing, we would be working with nature—and improving our chances of surviving the superbugs.”

“A comprehensive introduction worthy to be on the shelf of any holistic practitioner, herbalist, farmer or parent. The book … shows an appreciation for the melding of traditional practices, tools, and wisdom with modern research and insight.”
