From the Back Cover 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.
