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???

treating antibiotic resistant diseases 10 septembre 2013
Par D&D - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
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 edition...is 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.

Natural Antibiotics 26 août 2012

Format: Broché
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.

Has potential for energetic healers and muscle testers too 28 décembre 2012
Par Bruce Dickson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
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, 2nd Edition: Natural Alternatives for Treating Drug-resistant Bacteria is the book you want to have on your shelf...
Use this book along with a couple exciting herbs - This book was a real kick in the backside to make me realize just how much more I need to learn and gather my own supplies.
Here is a big Thank you to Stephen Harrod Buhner for writing this edition (I also bought the first edition however this edition has sooo much more information and knowledge!)
Thank you for opening my eyes to what is already happening! Wish I could have found you sooner!

Critically important topic, thoroughly researched launching pad 25 septembre 2013
Par CM - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
No newly developed pharmaceutical antibiotics are coming down the pipeline and haven't for over 20 years, so the need for alternative means to fight bacterial infections is becoming increasingly urgent with the ever-increasing rise of fatal superbugs. This book takes a tremendous first step in addressing this need. It's far more extensive than the original edition, and totally revised, in light of the explosion of new information gained in this field over the past 10 years.

Stephen Buhner, expert herbalist and author, does the hard work himself of weeding through the tremendous mounds of research and revealing to you, the reader, in his always witty, engaging, exhaustive style, some of the most promising antibacterial herbs. "Herbal antibiotics, second edition" starts out by discussing why bacteria become resistant, discusses various types of herbs to treat infections, and then shows you, the reader, how to make herbal medicines (or where to buy them from). The antibiotic herbs are divided into systemic - herbs that travels to all parts of the body; localized non-systemics - herbs that concentrate in the bloodstream but do not cross the GI tract; and synergists - herbs which work together to potentiate the effectiveness of the other herbs; profiling what he believes are the most effective herbs in each category. For example, he identifies cryptolepis as a systemic antibiotic, notes the dosage to use it for, historical uses of it, which bacterial strains it is active against, where to find it (i.e., Woodland Essence), as well as scientific research to support its use as an antibiotic. On page 100, he notes the tincture of cryptolepis is more effective than Bactrim and equal to ampicillin. On page 125, he states that alchornea, at the proper dosage, is as effective as ciprofloxacin, a 2nd generation fluoroquinolone antibiotic. The first section of the book delves more into the strictly antibiotic herbs, while the second half of the book delves more into immune-boosting herbs with antimicrobial properties.

My personal experience with these herbs is that they work, or at least they can pack a powerful punch to a sinus infection. I am a recurrent sinusitis sufferer who has a weakened immune system in my body's ability to produce antibodies against streptococcus pneumoniae and haemophilus influenzae, the two most infectious bacteria that account for 82% of acute bacterial rhinosinusitis (Source: Microbiology of Sinusitis, Proc Am Thorac Soc, March 2011). So I have worked with an herbal practitioner to use the cryptolepis, sida, alchornea (CSA) tincture (available from Woodland Essence) and "Auntie Bio" (which contains cryptolepis) to control infections, as well as certain nose drops for topical treatment of the infections.

While they all do pack a very powerful punch and in my estimation knocked the 2 infections out 90%, I cannot (as of yet) say they definitively eradicated either of my sinus infections, which in turn required pharmaceutical antibiotics, twice in the past 8 months. In fact, a recent nasal culture taken earlier this month tested positive for strep pneumoniae, despite using the "auntie bio" for several months prior. Perhaps I just have very resistant strains of bacteria in my sinuses, as I have been on many pharmaceutical antibiotics in my life, or maybe I didn't use the herbs at the right potency or with the right combination of herbs, I just don't know. Under the guidance of my herbalist, I used both the pharmaceutical antibiotic with the herbal antibiotic - which potentiated the effectiveness of the pharmaceutical and inhibited the efflux pumps of the bacteria - and both times this has knocked out the infection 100%. Ultimately, I hope I can rely on herbs exclusively rather than pharmaceutical antibiotics. My point in sharing this is more research is needed - like hard-core clinical research validating the efficacy of these herbs as antibiotics. I was disappointed that the book does not list the primary systemic antibiotics as effective against streptococcus pneumoniae or haemophilus influenza. On page 54, Mr. Buhner writes: "Unfortunately, cryptolepis, sida, and alchornea have not been tested against this organism [haemophilus influenza]. However, I believe that, due to their activity against similar Gram-negative bacteria, they are usable for Haemophilus infections, especially sida, given its strong protective effects on red blood cells." I directly emailed Mr. Buhner and asked if cryptolepis, sida and acuta were effective against strep pneumoniae, and he replied: "Probably is effective." I know he is incredibly swamped with emails and logically speaking, maybe it is effective based on what he knows, maybe no research has been done on this or maybe it was inadvertently not included in the book, but in my quest to stay sinus infection-free, perhaps I just want hard evidence.

Additionally, Mr. Buhner states on his Healing Lyme forum that herbs are not anywhere as harsh on the GI tract as pharmaceuticals, but notes some herbs, such as cryptolepis (or grapefruit seed extract) in large doses may upset the ecological balance in the GI tract. So taking probiotics with them, in these circumstances, may be useful.

So points for future consideration, in my mind, include:

+More clinical evidence on humans guiding the correct dosage and timeline for treating bacterial infections, additional research on herbs' effectiveness against bacterial strains such as strep pneumoniae or haemophilus influenzae, as well as how to get tested to determine what bacteria is causing the infection, and/or how to incorporate herbal treatments alongside current medical treatments. A potential roadblock, however, is that allopathic doctors do not appear interested in learning about herbs and much of the medical research on herbs takes place outside of North America.

+How to incorporate the many herbs he mentions while maintaining costs. Using antibiotic herbs for long-term infections via tinctures can be quite costly and is not covered by insurance. Mr. Buhner suggests importing alchornea seeds, as he believes it would do well in the United States, so perhaps having an herbal apothecary is part of the answer.

+The role of probiotics, if needed at all, when taking herbal antibiotics. It would be very intriguing to evaluate the intestinal microbiota of individuals taking herbal antibiotics (which any of us could do via the American Gut Project), as a specific research study seems warranted for at least peace of mind for people like myself taking herbal antibiotics long-term.

Despite the significant amount of research that still could be done, Mr. Buhner has done an incredible service to us all with his exhaustive research and clinical experience that he introduces to us in an easy-to-understand, accessible way. I, and those suffering with these crazy, difficult-to-treat infections, are no doubt deeply indebted to him.
