The overuse of antibiotics in medicine and agriculture has led to a crisis of antibiotic-resistant infectious diseases. Antibiotics are also radical remedies with side effects. Fortunately, there are a variety of teas, tinctures, topical salves and foods that can be used to prevent illness through strengthening our immune systems. There are also antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral herbs that can be used safely and effectively to help us heal when illness is already present. Join herbalist Robin Rose Bennett to learn how herbal allies, from astragalus to zingiber (ginger), can help us regain and maintain our health.
