An herbalist often presents a series of prescribed herbs
that are effective in curing a wide range of antibiotic-resistant diseases—
including meningitis, ear infections, and pneumonia--and suggestions on making,
using, and drinking herbal remedies, teas, or infusions from aloe vera,
echinacea, ginger, milk thistle, black cohosh, motherwort, and many more.
Traditional homeopathic treatment is also suggested. The National Herbalists
Association offers several courses on herbal medicine. Original course
materials are available in the form of books (with CD's) and on videotapes.

important to use herbal antibiotics (or a combination of herbs and antibiotics)
in your defense against yeast infections, athlete's foot, urinary tract
infection, pneumonia, food poisoning, etc.
