Does the high 77% mortality rate behind the current strain of Ebola virus alarm you? What about the fact that the medications used to "treat" this deadly outbreak are purely experimental: with no proven track record of success or documentation of potentially severe adverse effects?
All this knowledge is important... But what if these herbs are unavailable? If trends continue, the Ebola virus will soon be knocking at our door and our meager supply of commercially available herbs will be quickly depleted. The time to order some of these items may be sooner rather than later... But even more importantly, learn about the beneficial aspects of local herbs: you would be surprised at what you may find in your own backyard. It may be a good time to invest in a pocket herb field guide (and a pocket Bible as well)!
