Ce livre est un 'must' pour ceux qui se soucient de leur santé et qui ne sont pas enthousiasmés par les médicaments classiques... surtout quand il s'agit d'antibiotiques!! Des recettes très simples à bases de plantes...surtout quand il s'agit de booster le système immunitaire. MAIS c'est écrit en anglais et je ne sais pas s'il y a une traduction???

I have the earlier version and was delighted to get this second edition recently, three times the size of the original. The author states: "In the years since I wrote the first edition of this book, my knowledge of plant medicines and their use in healing has increased tremendously. Thus this new a great deal more comprehensive..." I found the first edition to be excellent and this one is even better. I also loved Buhner's "The Secret Teachings of Plants".

Here Buhner offers a slightly different list of the "top antibiotic herbs" than the first edition as deeper experience has shown him that, for instance, garlic and grapefruit seed extract are just not as effective as some of the new herbs in this edition. (I was pleased to read this as it reflects my own disappointing experiences with these two herbs.) Here the herbs have been divided into "the systemics" (cryptolepis, sida, alchornea, bidens, artemisia); "the localised nonsystemics" (berberines, juniper, honey, usnea); "the synergists (licorice, ginger, black pepper/piperine); and 8 herbs that he describes as the first line of defense (strengthening the immune system). There are a few tips on virus, fungus and parasite infections, although it does not really attempt to cover these pathogens. At the end are invaluable and detailed how-to-make instructions as well as a "formulary" (tincture proportions and dosages).

Thankfully, this book is not one of those encyclopedia-type listings that leave you wondering what herb/s to shortlist and where and how to actually start applying the information. With such books it is all little more than a lottery - perhaps slightly more educated than a lucky dip requires, but still guesswork. By contrast, here the knowledgeable author has done the shortlisting and is clear and concise. Dosages, preparation and use are all easy to find, as well as preventative guidelines to help prevent your getting sick in the first place.

In addition, it has one of the best overviews I've come across of why bacteria develop resistance to antibiotics. Buhner, who maintained a private practice in both psychotherapy and clinical herbalism from 1980 until 2005, also explains why and how herbs are better: antibiotics are single compounds that bacteria can eventually "outwit" (or evolve immunity to) whereas it is not as easy with the complex compounds found in herbs.

All this begs the main point, however. It is little-understood that pathogens ("bad" bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites) are found only where the "environment" (ie the human) is suitable for them. The more toxic and poor the environment (our bodies), the more likely we are to attract such unwanted "guests". They don't find us, the state of our bodies invites them. We each need to accept responsibility for creating a healthier environment within ourselves, one less attractive to such organisms. For example, unless your basal temperature is normal (98.2F/36.8C) - and stable - and your waking saliva pH is around 7, any recovery is temporary because germs thrive in acidic and lower-than-normal temperature bodies.

However, once health has deteriorated, it can be very difficult to improve the soil until the weeds are cleared. So, whereas I have reservations about the "this herb will fix this bacteria" mechanistic approach, here the distilling-down work has been done by the author - from hundreds of possible herbs to a very short list - making it possible to combine several to work on quite a wide range of infections, whether drug-resistant or not. To me this seems much more helpful and practically useful than most books on herbs, and Buhner's extensive experience shows up clearly throughout the book. The author has done the hard work, reducing the usual guess-work required; rather than "basic", the book demonstrates an elegant simplicity that is rare to find.

This is a valuable reference with information on herbal alternatives to standard antibiotics. Antibiotic-resistant infections and "super bugs" are becoming a challenge to standard medicine. According to the author over 70 percent of all pathogenetic bacteria in hospitals are found to be at least minimally resistant to antibiotics. The book explores the root of antibiotic resistance and looks at the value of herbal treatments with profiles of thirty herbs known for their antibiotic properties. Also included are methods for collection and preparation, dosages, potential side effects, and alternatives.

While the topic of antibiotic-resistance can be alarming, I appreciated that this book didn't take a doomsday, fearful tone but instead presents the facts based on research and studies, and the author offers hope with valuable information on herbal remedies. Some of the information is rather scientific but is written in terms an average person can understand and the home remedy recipes are easy to follow. Although I haven't actually made any of the remedies yet, the herbs required are those I can find at my local health food store or online, or I could grow some of them myself. It's also important to note, as the author does, that herbs can have side-effects and can affect how other medicines work if both are taken together. In the profiles of the herbs, the potential side-effects are noted.

Remedies include those for ear infections, skin infections, relieving the symptoms of colds and flu, boosting the immune system, and much more.

This is a good resource to have on hand as a natural alternative to antibiotics and other medications that may not be as effective as they used to be.

I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Has potential for energetic healers and muscle testers too 28 décembre 2012
Par Bruce Dickson - Publié sur
A well-organized 468 pages and very good. This is WORLDWIDE herbology, the best herb for the job, irrespective of country or culture. Does not address the energetic angle of interpreting illness as Messages from the Body, but short of that, the best textbooks I've ever seen on herbs for antibiotic use.

The below is a view of this work from an energetic persepctive; that is, what can be tested with muscle testing of any kind, towards solutions for your self and for patrons.

General rules of thumb for dealing with resistant infections

Systemic infection ~ try: Cryptolepis
Severe diarrhea, dysentery ~ try berberine herbs, any
Urinary tract infection ~ try: Juniper berry combined with bidens
Infected surface or surgical wound ~ try: Honey has always worked
Menningitis ~ try: Add piperine, isatis and others are suggested

(abbreviated from p. 45)

Buhner reminds of the distinction between bacteria with one cell wall and two cell walls. Gram positive bacteria are stainable because they have only one cell wall. Gram negative bacteria are not stainable as they have two cells walls. This distinction is therefore a possible distinction to test for.

The main resistant Gram-positive (single cell wall) bacteria are:
- Clostridium difficile
- Enterococcus spp.
- Mycobacterium tuberculosis
- Staphylococcus aureus
- Streptococcus spp.
(abbreviated from Chap. 2)
Extensive detail on how to deal herbally with each and its variats follows.

The main resistant Gram-negative (double cell wall) bacteria are:
acinetobacter baumannii
campylobacter jejuni
E. coli
haemophilus influenzae
klebsiella pneumoniae
neisseria gonorrhoeae
proteus spp.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa
salmonella spp. (including S. typhi...)
serrata marcescens
shigellia spp. (including dysentariae...)
stenotrophomonas maltophilia
vibrio clolerae
(abbreviated from p. 54)
Extensive detail on how to deal herbally with each and its variats follows.

SYSTEMIC herbs ~ These herbs travel to all parts of the body when ingested:

Cryptolepis, Sida, Alchornea, Bidens, Artemisia.

LOCALIZED NON-SYSTEMICS ~ these herbs do not easily cross the GI tract membrane. They concentrate in the bloodstream. This limits them effectively to the GI tract, skin or certain organs (he explains more):

The berberines, Juniper, Honey, Usnea

SYNERGISTS ~ three he likes are: licorice, ginger and black pepper.

A wealth of thoro detail on all aspects follows.

Herbal antibiotics should be a mind-blowing book to any Western medical practitioner. It reveals an entire world of antibiotics that are readily available from the natural world. On top of this, these antibiotics are very effective against the very organisms that pharmaceutical antibiotics have trouble with, so says Stephen Buhner, the book's author.

The book explains how antibiotic resistance came about and where it's heading (getting worse if you can't guess that) and how natural antibiotics are part of the solution. It explores a holistic approach to treating infection that involves not only knocking out the infective organisms, but also supporting the immune system (and a patient's emotional/spiritual comportment) as part of the healing process.

It offers specific treatment guidelines for several antibiotic-resistant infections and it covers quite a number of particular herbs in depth, exploring not only their history including their use in traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurveda, and Western herbal practice but what science has discovered about them. This last part is the most interesting because it demonstrates that while the author has a beef with western medical practice and with the biases of science research in America, he believes strongly in the scientific method.

While the book is eye opening to say the least, there are a few shortcomings. First, some of infections covered are usually so serious that they require hospitalization. The question of how does one get to be treated with these herbs in a modern American hospital is not addressed. Similarly, if you are someone without health insurance, how are you going to know which bacteria you have in order to select the most appropriate protocol? Third, it's not clear how the author came up with the specific protocols for treating individual infections. Most of the research he refers to covers a specific herb for specific infection (which, in fact, is one of the shortcomings of Western medical practice that he exposes). Finally, the author seems to be suggesting that unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics, herbal ones don't negatively alter the gut microflora, but how that could be the case isn't 100% clear.
