As pharmaceuticals become less effective against emerging, resistant, and epidemic viral infections such as SARS, influenza, and encephalitis, a natural and herbal approach is proving more effective. In this companion to Herbal Antibiotics, Stephen Buhner clearly explains which emerging viruses the population is facing; the respiratory and nervous system infections these viruses cause; how to treat these infections; how to strengthen the immune system; and herbal medicine’s place in the fight against viruses. In addition, there is a chapter on herbal medicine making. For anyone who wants to take greater responsibility for their health care or who is fighting infections that are not responding to traditional pharmaceutical treatment, this book offers an herbal alternative.
This is a wake-up call about the virility of emerging viruses as well as an empowering manual of home-based medicine that can help fight the respiratory and central nervous system infections they cause.
