“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.”
From the Back Cover
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.

What I particularly liked though was both the author's directness, as well as his twisted sense of humor. Reminded me a lot of the old "Far Side" cartoons written by Gary Larson. This humor may not be for everyone, but folks who have ever worked in a research environment will usually recognize this as a good thing, as the most groundbreaking researchers often have such a warped mind...
Anyway, I quickly read through it I would say skimmed, but I put in too much time to say I skimmed it.
So the info looks good and very informative, I just don't like the layout of the book.
If anyone know a book that fits my description I would love to be able to get it. Thanks
I seldom write glowing reviews, but these two books are far far above anything else I have ever seen.
I hope for the sake of people all over the world that these two books become bestsellers.
