Herbal Antibiotics (Buhner)
Product Code: 2267
The era of the penicillin miracle is over. Through our indiscriminate use of pharmaceutical antibiotics in hospital and factory farms, humans have created "Superbugs" -- tenacious and virulent bacteria that develop resistance to solitary antibiotics compounds at an alarming speed.
In this empowering book, Stephen Buhner offers conclusive evidence that plant medicines, with their complex mix of multiple antibiotic compounds, are remarkably effective against drug-resistant bacteria. You'll learn how antibiotic herbs such as aloe, garlic, and grapefruit seed extract represent our best defense against bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus, E. coli, and Salmonella -- and how their use will ensure that, in the future, antibiotic drugs will still be there when we really need them.
This profoundly timely book, written by one of America's preeminent herbalists, points the way to a healthier future.
