An article from the UK published Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013 sounded the alarm for the looming problem of antibiotic resistance.
From the article: “Prof. Dame Sally Davies said bacteria are learning how to resist our current antibiotics and there are few new drugs in the pipeline to replace them.

Western societies may want to consider a return to the use of plant medicines, like the raw herbs used in eastern medicine. Not reported in the mainstream media is the fact that herbal medicine has already been used to avert catastrophe during the SARS epidemic. The book, Formulas, Herbs and Isolates in the Cancer Clinic, contains a description of China’s actions:
The text goes on the describe other capabilities of herbal medicine. “There are botanic medicines that reduce drug resistance, enhance chemotherapy and radiation therapy efficacy, reduce risk of infection after surgery, lower elevated liver enzymes, repair neuropathies and gastrointestinal lining and modulate immunity.”
