The threat of an imminent pandemic has society frantically searching for preventatives and treatments. At present, our ability to cope with a fast-moving, highly infectious, virulent form of a respiratory virus is very limited. This book covers an overlooked path: The use of herbs to ease the symptoms caused by a respiratory virus. A group of licensed physicians, the Eclectics, successfully used herbs to ease the severe aches and pains, fevers, and coughs as well as to prevent pulmonary complications that were common and often fatal in the 1918 flu pandemic. This book describes over 30 herbs actually used to treat influenza as well how physicians determined which herb to use and how to dose the plant. Because remedies were chosen to address specific symptoms, their descriptions enable us to chose herbs that might help address a current corona virus pandemic. The book also discusses the availability and development of antiviral drugs, vaccines, pandemic plans, and a way to potentially reduce the cytokine storm a pandemic virus can set off.

About the Author

Kathy Abascal has a degree in neurobiology and biochemistry. She worked for a number of years on a variety of clinical research studies before obtaining a Juris Doctor degree. After practicing law for a number of years, she returned to health care- this time the study of medicinal plants. As a professional herbalist, she wrote several texts on botanical medicine as well as numerous articles for professional journals. As the years wore on, she began gaining weight and experiencing aches and pains that she initially attributed to aging but these changes caused her to begin shifting her focus from herbal medicine to nutrition. She simply started eating with the specific goal of quieting inflammation. The immediate, positive results she experienced motivated her to begin teaching TQI anti-inflammatory diet classes and to write the book "The Abascal Way to quiet inflammation."
