For several decades now, I have been deeply interested in antibiotic resistance, the intelligence of bacteria, and the use of treatment approaches that are, ultimately, more elegant than pharmaceuticals. Unlike pharmaceuticals, plant-based medicines don’t cause resistance problems, they can be much safer, and they are ecologically sound, being both biodegradable and renewable, which most pharmaceuticals are not.

Natural Flu Treatment Tips and Formulas

The concept of herbal antibiotics as primary intervention has, over the past several decades, become common in cultures outside the Western industrialized nations. Researchers in cultures across the globe have found the plant antibacterials are often more effective than pharmaceuticals. They are exploring which ones are most potent, which forms of preparation are most effective, and how best to grow them. A new model of health care is coming into being—and it’s about time.

It is my hope that this same kind of movement will begin in the treatment of viral diseases. We need new ways of thinking about viruses, their emergence and their treatment. We can do a lot to create a more effecting healing paradigm in our world, one that is ecologically sustainable and at the same time more human-friendly—if we step outside the box that’s trapped our thinking.
