Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
09/02/2013
Herbalist Buhner (Herbal Antibiotics) expands upon his goal of finding ecologically sustainable, human-friendly options for healing in his latest book. Starkly critical of medical “hubris,” the author compiles a staggering traditional scientific bibliography and uses it to both build his case and deconstruct the status quo. Equally inconsistent is the book’s tone. The scientist may find the mix of lay and scientific terminology unnerving; the uninitiated may cling tightly to a dictionary as the text speeds from DNA to cytokine kinetics. Occasional missteps on the sentence level mar the book. For example, the author uses phrases such as “ viruses the nutrients they need,” when, by definition, viruses need no nutrients. However, a detailed review of herbs demonstrates the depth of Buhner’s knowledge of their applications. (Oct.)
Energy Times
“Whether for everyday well-being or in dealing with dangerous diseases, plants offer natural options for improved health. … Herbal Antivirals help[s] put plant power in the reader’s hands.”

    Medicene~Sicknesses

    Cough~similar to a twoleg cold, just coughing and sneezing, dangerous to younglings, best remedy: tansy<br>
    Greencough~similar to a twoleg pneumonia, common in leaf-bare, wheezing, coughing, pus excreted from eyes, sneezing, fever, & green phlegm streaming from nose, best remedy: catmynt & feverfew<br>
    Whitecough~mild sickness/cold, more common than greencough, can become greencough or blackcough, sneezing, coughing, white phlegm streaming from nose, slightly high temperature, best remedy: catmynt<br>
    Blackcough~fatal and very rare, intense chest pain, wheezing, coughing, best remedy: catmynt<br>
    Chills~mild ailment from cold weather & falling in icy water, like whitecough, but with cold chills not fever, best remedy: catmynt, feverfew, lavender<br>
    Cracked paws~painful, mainly in the elderly, from cold or dry weather, intreated leads to infection, swelling of the paws and pain, best remedy: marigold, dock, poppy seeds (if there's pain)<br>
    Aching joints~like a cat's arthritis, age or damp weatter causes it, pain, stiffness, best remedy: painkillers, not poppy seeds<br>
    Bleeding~bloodloss from wounds, severity varies upon wound, best remedy: cobwebs<br>
    Poisoning~can be caused by things such as deathberries, bad freshkill eaten, and snake bites, best remedy: yarrow, stinging nettle, snakeroot (for snake bites)<p>
    Just because it says "best remedy" does not mean that in every single case, the cat will survive. The cat is only as strong as its age and mentality, not just the disease ailing them.

    Very informative

    I highly recommend this book for all persons interested in alternative methods of health care. It is not for a beginner just learning about this topic because one needs a basic background in
    understanding how these wortk. It would make an exvellent textbook for medical, nursing and other allied health schools teaching
    alternative/complementary medicine.
