About the Author
Some have titled Stephen Harrod Buhner as one of the forerunners of our time for the return to an ecological foundation of healing. However, he comes from a long line of medical practitioners and healers. His grandfather was president of the Kentucky Medical Association and his great-uncle was Surgeon General of the United States. Stephen has added to this family heritage by becoming a respected figure in herbal medicine. He is the author of Storey's Herbal Antibiotics, Herbs for Hepatitis C and the Liver, as well as Sacred Plant Medicine; One Spirit, Many Peoples; and Sacred and Herbal Healing Beers. He is a national lecturer on herbal medicine and is an adjunct faculty member at the Rocky Mountain Center for Botanical Studies. Stephen has served as president of the Colorado Association for Healing Practitioners and as a lobbyist on herbal and holistic medicines and education in the Colorado legislature.
Best-selling author David Hoffmann, who wrote The New Holistic Herbal, has this great review for Herbal Antibiotics: "This profoundly timely book, written by one of America's preeminent herbalists, points the way to a healthier future." Also, James A. Duke, Ph.D., author of The Green Pharmacy, said: "Stephen Buhner has arrived at (and shares with you, the reader) the frightening truth you won't find in the Journal of the American Medical Association: We are running out of weapons in the war on germs."
