The blockbuster movie Outbreak, released in 1995, made us more aware of emerging viruses that could potentially cause a pandemic. Are there safe ways to boost your immune system, so that you don’t catch every bug that’s going around?
Yes, says Stephen Harrod Buhner, author of Herbal Antivirals: Natural Remedies for Emerging and Resistant Viral Infections. He points out that a little known virus called chikungunha fever swept the remote Reunion Islands and then traveled to India.

In his book, Buhner discusses emerging viruses and he offers a materia medica on herbal medicine to treat various symptoms. Most importantly, he offers advice on how to build a strong immune system.Buy Now
