Treating Minor Infections With Herbs, by Cindy L. Jones
Once thought to be the magic bullet, able to rid the world of disease, antibiotics are now loosing their strength. Ever since penicillin became widely used in the 1940's, bacteria have been developing ways to get around antibiotics. Our over-dependence on antibiotics has created antibiotic resistant bacteria that are now more difficult to treat. Scientists are questioning whether it is really appropriate to treat minor infections such as earaches or bronchitis with antibiotics. Many times these infections are caused by viruses, which because of their biological makeup, do not respond to antibiotics. If we want antibiotics to work for life threatening diseases, we should save them for that purpose.

Many minor infections can be healed with common herbs including culinary herbs that have long been used as food preservatives such as sage, rosemary and thyme. But antibiotic herbs also include chamomile, garlic, goldenseal and licorice. Simple infections of the skin such as acne, respiratory tract infections such as bronchitis, as well as diarrhea can usually be treated successfully with herbal antibiotics. For a full description of treating these infections read "The Antibiotic Alternative".

Here's what reviewers are saying:
"With a straightforward matter-of-fact style, Dr. Cindy Jones' book about herbs for healthy skin is a treasure trove of information. This e-book is a sure sign of future publishing, with a concise and condensed style that is quick to read and easy to use.   Although she has an excellent, strong background in the more technical aspects of herbs, Dr. Jones' e-book is presented at a level anyone can understand and enjoy. I always love books with lots of recipes, and hers is no disappointment.  This is the kind of book one can peruse and immediately put to use, making all sorts of potions and lotions for healthy skin.  Both her knowledge and  love of herbs and the desire to share and inspire readers is readily apparent."
