5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Book! 30 novembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Stephen Buhner continues the run of great books he has been giving us with one of the best overviews in print of why bacteria develop resistance to antibiotics. The book is extremely user friendly and the herbs can be searched individually or searched by resistant bacteria. Scientific studies show how each herb has been tested against particular resistant bacteria. Dosages, preparation and use are all easy to find. A truly great book in an important field. I highly recommend it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 AN INCREDIBLE BOOK 19 décembre 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Using leading-edge scientific research author Stephen Buhner reveals the little-known world of bacteria and their amazing ability to develop defenses to pharmaceutical antibiotics. Citing many of the world's leading bacteriologists he shows how bacteria will eventually develop immunity to most antibiotics - that the window of opportunity we have had as a species during the antibiotic era is almost over. He then comprehensively explores the most recent scientific research on the plant compounds that have been found in in vivo, in vitro and in human trial to be effective in treating antibiotic-resistant microorganisms. The book looks at the ten primary antibiotic-resistant disease organisms and those plants that have been found in clinical trial to be effective for their treatment. This book is a must have! It begins a long overdue exploration of more ecologically sustainable approaches to the treatment of disease with substances that are ecologically sustainable. The author's firm grasp of his subject matter and the comprehensive nature of his treatment of the subject make this a book that will continue to be useful for years to come. Highly recommended!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 No mention of the most important antibiotic herbs 11 septembre 2011
Par hoarselord - Publié sur Amazon.com
Plenty of mention of unsubstantiated or even partially invalidated herbs like echninacea, eucalyptus coupled with fluff and really surface-level ubiquitous information one can get in any herbal book gets "Herbal Antibiotics" my one-star review.

Maybe I'm being too harsh but I believe it's foolish and off-putting for a book about herbal antibiotics to omit of any of the following: oregano, thyme, olive leaf, chinese scullcap, turmeric. These are among the most important antibiotic herbs cited in several similar books and substantiated by scientific studies on pubmed, nih and medical universities abroad. To fact check me, look up some of the 'active' molecules contained within those herbs: carvacrol, eugenol, thymol, curcuminoid in google- first hit should be wikipedia- read it then thank me for not wasting money on this book.

I think it's funny how we herbalists cherry pick from recycled, syndicated, reworded-a-thousand-times-over information that essentially can be traced back to an historically-fascinating, folklorically-relevant but outdated 'A Modern Herbal'. Such is the case of the author's section on eucalyptus, which imo, is just intellectually lazy bordering on negligent. Why the heck, I ask, can't any of us herbalist seem to do actual, real research?

Go deep or go home.

I don't own this book thank goodness, I skimmed through it at a bookstore and rolled my eyes so much i almost broke something. Because it's so much like others- it's fluff heavy and thin on reality. A better book, "Prescription for Herbal Healing". Thorough enough. Right-headed, some good research there.

There is an inherent bias among herbalist that says, "if it's called an 'herb' it must be 'healing' because that's what they do". I disagree. Some herbs are just fancy vegetables or pretty flowers. One would have to distill seven hundred thousand tons of them to get anything useful and effective in the body orally or anally (should you be so inclined) from them.

So can anyone here name an active chemical compound in eucalyptus that has antibiotic activity? Ok I'll help. Cineol/eucalyptol. It has been shown not to be antibiotic, and too much in the body is instead toxic. The author is simply wrong in mentioning it. There is one reference to a study showing efficacy against rhinosinusitus. How? Because eucalyptol does reduces cytokine activity (inflammation) allowing your body to heal itself. The herb's not an antibiotic. Fool!

How about this for a book on herbs as antibiotics:

What is your metric for 'grading' the antibiotic activity of each of these? Does one show activity against listeria, e. coli, candida, some other class of microbe pathogen? Efficacy in vitro or in vivo or in monkey? C'mon folks, let's change our rubric to a more scientific one, otherwise doctors get to be right about everything, and our books-like this one-get to read like the same old hippie yippie bark chewing nonsense.

What would have pleased me in this book, is an exhaustive biochemical assay of each molecule in every herb in the book. And I want each of those researched to exhaustion. No studies show efficacy, the herb sucks, toss it from the book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 new insight into bacteria, good info on certain herbs 14 mai 2009
Par Carolyn Dumond - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I have several books on herbs and vitamins. Altho this book is 9 years old, the information about how bacteria become resistant was a real shocker! The author has much more specific information regarding the major bacteria types, what illnesses they relate to, and which herbs and plants (and vegetables) will most directly attack that bacteria. In this age of worldwide pandemics, this stuff is good to know. Also, he does not advocate forgoing antibiotics....just using them more sparingly. Great resource book

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Small book with good information 4 décembre 2010
Par Laura De Giorgio - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book contains useful information on some 15 herbal remedies that may help to defend the body against bacteria that have become resistant to antibiotics. The top 15 antibiotic herbs listed in this book are: acacia, aloe, cryptolepsis, echinacea, eucalyptus, garlic, ginger, goldenseal, grapefruit seed extract, honey, juniper, licorice, sage, usnea, and wormwood. The author also offers alternatives to these herbs in case that you can find them, or that you can't take them for some reason.

In the second part of the book, the author goes over the herbs that can help you to strengthen your immune system like ashwagandha, astragalus, boneset, red root, siberian ginseng, as well as alternatives.

You'll find suggestions on how to prepare herbs, as well as recipes for making herbal teas (infusions and decoctions), oils, tinctures, salves, herbal powders, herbal sprays, even herbal soups.
