From the publisher:

Antibiotic-resistant infections are alarmingly on the rise, and many people are looking for sound information on herbal alternatives to standard antibiotics. In this indispensable reference, herbal expert Stephen Harrod Buhner explains the roots of antibiotic resistance, explores the value of herbal treatments, and provides in-depth profiles of 30 valuable herbs, noting for each one its antibiotic properties, methods for collection and preparation, dosages, potential side effects, contraindications, and alternatives. As we prepare for the end of antibiotics, this comprehensive guide is a must-have in every family’s medicine cabinet.”

From the back cover:

The Essential Guide to Building Your Natural Defenses

Bacterial infections are on the rise, and pharmaceutical antibiotics are increasingly powerless to stop them. Pathogenic bacteria are tenacious survivors; they outsmart modern medicine and become virulent “superbugs,” resistant to antibiotics and increasingly deadly.

Stephen Harrod Buhner offers conclusive evidence that plant medicines, with their complex mix of multiple antibiotic, systemic, and synergistic compounds, should be our first line of defense against resistant infections. His indispensable reference explains the roots of antibiotic resistance, explores the value of herbal treatments, and provides in-depth profiles of the most reliably effective herbs, giving you the confidence to identify the best herbal formulas and make medicines yourself.”

Stephen Harrod Buhner is the award-winning author of fourteen books, including Sacred Plant Medicine, The Lost Language of Plants, Healing Lyme, Ensouling Language, Herbs for Hepatitis C and the Liver, and The Secret Teaching of Plants. Stephen answers questions about his herbal protocol for lyme disease on the stand-alone Planet Thrive affiliate website BuhnerHealingLyme.com.

    Earthwalker is the username that PT founder Julie Genser created for her online interactions so many years ago when first creating Planet Thrive.

    Julie's (Earthwalker's) life was derailed over twenty years ago when she had a very large organic mercury exposure after she naively used a mouth thermometer to measure the temperature of just-boiled milk while making her very first pizza at home. The mercury instantly expanded into a gas form and exploded out the back of the thermometer right into her face. Unaware that mercury was the third most neurotoxic element on Earth, Julie had no idea she had just received a very high dose of a poisonous substance.

    A series of subsequent toxic exposures over the next few years -- to smoke from two fires (including 9/11), toxic mold, lyme disease, and chemical injuries -- caused catastrophic damage to her health. While figuring out how to survive day-to-day, and often minute-to-minute, she created Planet Thrive to help others avoid some of the misdiagnoses and struggles she had experienced.

    She has clawed her way over many health mountains to get to where she is today. She is excited to bring the latest iteration of Planet Thrive to the chronic illness community.

    In 2019, Julie published her very first cookbook e-book called Low Lectin Lunches (+ Dinners, Too!) after discovering how a low lectin, gluten free diet was helping manage her chronic fascia/muscle pain.

    This second edition is a HUGE improvement over the first edition. Read the new preface to the second edition on Amazon for Buhner’s overview of the changes. For instance, the first edition was 144 pages; the second edition is a whopping 480 pages, over three times larger—lots of new info and all updated info. I’d actually call this an entirely new book, not just a “second edition.” this info is vital to all humans, and in my view, the book is an essential resource for every home library. i plan to buy extra copies for gifts. Enjoy!
