In his book Herbal Antibiotics, author Stephen Harrod Buhner explains the need for using herbal antibiotics rather than pharmaceuticals for treating disease-resistant bacteria, and gives detailed information on herbal treatments. A discussion of antibiotic resistance prepares the reader for the author’s contention that a resistant epidemic will emerge in the foreseeable future and most, if not all, pharmaceutical antibiotics will be useless. Buhner continues with a discussion of individual resistant bacteria, the herbs that are effective in treating them, and specific suggestions for treatment. Thirty in-depth profiles of valuable plants include information on such topics as preparation, dosage, potential side effects, traditional use, and scientific research. Specific directions for the preparation of both tinctures and water extraction are also provided.

Stephen Harrod Buhner is an Earth poet and author of ten books on nature, indigenous cultures, the environment, and herbal medicine. He writes with considerable authority and has a sizable following but information on his educational background is sparse. In his book, he includes many charts, cites numerous studies, and provides an extensive bibliography. His writing style is casual considering the subject matter and includes humorous and witty comments that enliven the text.
