About this title


'It is a long-awaited book and answers many questions.' Jan de Vries When antibiotics were developed in the 1940s, they were hailed as a huge breakthrough in the treatment of bacterial infections, earning them the title of 'miracle drugs'. Since then they have become the most commonly prescribed drugs in the world. Now, however, studies indicate that massive over-prescribing is causing increasing problems, with the advent of antibiotic-resistant organisms, or 'superbugs' as they are commonly referred to. A recent report from the World Health Organisation gives stern warning about the dangers of the over-use of antibiotics. With this increasing awareness, people are rightly demanding alternatives for both themselves and their children. Dr McKenna covers these alternatives in detail, writing in simple terms with the minimum of scientific jargon. He compares conventional medicine and alternative medical approaches, recognising the benefits and drawbacks in both. By investigating herbal, homeopathic and nutritional medicines, he shows clearly that it is possible to treat infections without antibiotics, but also recognises when antibiotics may sometimes be necessary.

About the Author:
