HERBAL ANTIBIOTICS
A USEFUL BOOK IN A TIME OF ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANT MICROBES

Recommended Book: Herbal Antibiotics by Stephen Harrod Buhner (foreword by James A. Duke, Ph.D.)

Herbal Antibiotics is a handy book to have around during a time of an increasing incidence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. It provides information on safe and effective (to one degree or another) antibacterial herbs, including Ashwaghanda (Withania somnifera), Astragalus membranaceus, ginger, garlic, sage, and many others. We were not familiar with the author, but have read considerable work of Dr. James A. Duke, a world-famous expert on herbal medicine. In his foreword, Dr. Duke notes, “[t]he polychemical synergistic mix, concentrating the powers already evolved in medicinal plants, may be our best hope for confronting drug resistant bacteria.”

The book contains preparation for use and dose information, plus contraindications and adverse effects, as well as references to scientific papers. It even includes some recipes for eating the herbal medicines for those herbs that are not too bitter.
