    DescriptionThere has never been a greater need for comprehensive, well-researched information about herbs' potential to fight infection. In 1998, Stephen Harrod Buhner - a leading herbal practitioner and author - published the first edition of "Herbal Antibiotics" to great acclaim. Since then, health care providers have discovered many new resistant strains of bacteria, researchers have added to the growing body of knowledge about herbs, and the need for antivirals to treat emerging infections like SARS and West Nile Encephalitis has become urgent. Within ten years, according to sources cited in the book, pharmaceutical antibiotics will begin to fail at epidemic rates. There are, in fact, no new antibiotics currently in planning or development at any of the major pharmaceutical companies. Most notably, there is none for Gram-negative bacteria, which are emerging as the most dangerous pathogens.

    Back cover copy
    The Essential Guide to Building Your Natural DefensesBacterial 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.
