With antibiotic-resistant infections on the rise, herbal remedies present a naturally effective alternative to standard antibiotics. Herbal expert Stephen Harrod Buhner explains the roots of antibiotic resistance, explores the value of herbal treatments, and provides in-depth profiles of 30 valuable plants, noting the proper dosages, potential side effects, and contraindications of each. This comprehensive guide offers sound information on herbal alternatives to standard antibiotics, making it an indispensable addition to every family's medicine cabinet.

Industry Reviews

"In this timely book, Buhner reveals that plants are the people's medicine, possessing attributes that pharmaceuticals never will."


"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."


"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."
