Another great Buhner book.

Basically follows the same format at the previously reviewed Herbal Antibiotics, and well worth reading if you have an interest in furthering your knowledge on antiviral resistant organisms and effective herbal antivirals, immune boosters and synergists.

This man is absolutely brilliant! Ignore this book at your peril. I have tried many of his natural antibiotics (another of his books) and his natural anti-herbals. They work!

Herbal Antivirals is a sister book to Buhner's Herbal Antibiotics. Like its predecessor it focuses on herbal alternatives for medical treatments - this time antivirals.

I'm really sold on the need to find alternative treatments for viruses and bacteria. The emergence of superbugs and the neigh-inevitable viral outbreak is something that's in my mind not only highly probable - it seems an almost unavoidable, given the historical prevalenceof pandemics. I'm also sold on the usefulness of plants an

It seems to be a requirement that herbalists have good senses of humor. This author is not one of the few exceptions and as such this herbal is a pleasant read. The author seems to clearly know his herbs.
He cites specific ingredients and the mechanisms by which they work. He also includes scientific studies backing the herbs. Lastly, he both links herbs to specific ailments (candida in my case) and provides lengthy explanations on how herbal antibiotic treatments in general and specific work.

Best with the companion book on herbal antibiotics by the same author. I think everyone should own a printed copy of these books. Drug resistant pathogens kill more of us every day and modern medicine is failing to help.

Always interested in finding new angles on medicine and this is brilliant. Inspired. I bought some tincture. Haven't used them regularly, but noted some talk in book about histamine and mast cells. Taken them infrequently, but noticing no whatever yet.

If I were a doctor, nurse or any medical student I think this book would receive 5 stars. I do like how the book does describe viruses, diseases, etc. but some points it goes into almost too much of a description for me personally. I think there is a lot of information the average mom wouldn't need to know. With that being said, I do hope other medical professionals start reach for more books like this, we currently use a doctor for our children who goes the natural/herbal route whenever possibl ...more

Excellent compendium of info on viral agents

A bit overboard on the scientifics, but utterly useful and comprehensive information on not just viruses. Here he describes the herbs and supplements useful to treat them, and goes into great detail as to WHY they work. Also gives info on making herbal tinctures and such to empower the reader to create their own cure. I'm going to try some of these starting tonight, will update as I go on. Four stars just because it's a tedious read, you'd best be dedi

Delivers again and I am so thankful to have this on my shelf. It has actually already helped me with a serious cough the doctors could not get rid of. The technical jargon is tough to get through, but if you take the time to look stuff up and reread, it will come.

Excellent source powerful of a herbal approach to antivirals. Stephen is very knowledgable about the subject and I find it a joy to know and figure out an alternative for Western medicine. The book is easy to use and you can quickly jump to those subjects that are applicable to your situation.

Absolutely amazing book! Buhner is a brilliant writer and an even more brilliant herbalist. This book explains viruses and herbal antivirals in ways that make them so easy to comprehend. This is definitely a book worth reading by anyone interested in herbalism.

Four star for being a very useful herbal references. Probably not the most riveting read anyone (Herbalist or not) will ever have but definitely worth referring to later for the information within.
