If you've ever had strep throat, been diagnosed with a UTI, or had any other bacterial infection, there’s a good chance you’ve been prescribed an antibiotic at some point in your life. Antibiotics are a family of medications that destroy or slow down the growth of bacteria that cause infections. They can be life-savers, especially for conditions like Lyme. There are countless different antibiotics, but some common ones you’ll come across are doxycycline (especially for Lyme), azithromycin ("Zpack"), amoxicillin, ciprofloxacin, and metronidazole. And there are many more!

Dr. Lo Radio Show: Herbal Antibiotics with Stephen Harrod Buhner
Bacterial infections are on the rise, and antibiotics are increasingly powerless to stop them. These bacteria outsmart modern medicine as they become "superbugs." in 1942, the world's entire supply of penicillin was approximately 64 pounds. By 2009, it rose to 60 million pounds a year! Half of the antibiotics in the US are used on LIVESTOCK so they can survive overcrowding (plus antibiotics fatten them up -- higher revenue). Most people don't realize it, but these antibiotics never go away -- they end up in our water system and pollute our environment. The good news is that there are extremely effective NATURAL antibacterial herbs that fight these superbug bacteria. In this show, Dr. Lo interviews herbalist extraordinnaire Stephen Harrod Buhner and author of Herbal Antibiotics: Natural Alternatives For Treating Drug-Resistant Bacteria. A show you don't want to miss!
