Best Herbal Medicine Handbook
« on: June 26, 2010, 08:44:21 PM »
Just curious if anyone has a fav?

I'm looking for one with not only information on the plant itself but information on preparations and usage.

Thanks

Hey KYdoomer,

My personal favorite is "Herbal Antibiotics:Natural Alternatives for Treating Drug-Resistant Bacteria" by Stephen Harrod Buhner.

The book discusses how germs become resistant to single-substance modern medicines, and how germs cannot develop resistance to herbal preparations due to their complex makeups of multiple substances. It outlines several of the best herbal medicines, and offers dosages/preparations for each.

It's well worth the new price tag (around $10), but you can also find it used for only a few bucks if you shop around. This book is an absolute necessity in every "survival library", in my opinion.
