An important overview of the state of the art in naturally occurring antimycotics! Here is a comprehensive and innovative examination of the antimycotic potential of essential plant oils and extracts against fungal infections affecting humans, animals, plants, and foodstuffs. Plant-Derived Antimycotics emphasizes the antimycotic activity of plants found in Central America, India, Nepal, Fiji, and China--areas rich in phyto-diversity and traditional botanical/medical knowledge. From editor M.K. Rai: “Since the inception of human civilization men have been using herbs against various mycotic infections. In the recent past, several antimycotic agents have been introduced into the market due to their rapid curative properties. Still, the quest for new antifungal agents of a fungicidal rather than fungistatic nature continues. Furthermore, there has been a dramatic increase in the new spectrum of fungal infections known as opportunistic fungal pathogens. Consequently, plant-derived antimycotics are gaining importance, being natural, cheaper, safer, eco-friendly, and within the reach of the common man.” With a distinguished list of contributors from around the world, Plant-Derived Antimycotics explores: antifungal compounds that strengthen plant-defense systems traditional herbs that have revealed their antifungal properties newer, faster methods of screening and evaluating antifungal drugs natural antimycotics derived from plants in Croatia, South America, South Africa, China, India, and Fiji the mechanism of herbal antimycotic action the diversity of antimycotic efficacy in Asteraceous and Meliaceous plants new bioactive antifungal molecules Plant-Derived Antimycotics is an essential reference for pharmacologists, microbiologists, clinical mycologists, oncologists, immunologists, drug manufacturers, botanists and ethnobotanists, phytochemists, herbalists, and everyone searching for a natural remedy for the new spectrum of opportunistic fungal infections generated by the immunocompromising difficulties encountered by AIDS and cancer patients. Color illustrations, photographs, charts, tables, and graphs make the information easier to absorb and understand.

Are you looking for an alternative to traditional pharmaceuticals? Are you scared of the side effects of commonly prescribed medicines? Do you believe in the power of nature to heal you? In my book, Herbal Antivirals, Antibiotics & Antifungals, I will teach you how to use plants and herbs for medicinal purposes at home. I was never a believer in natural healing remedies. I grew up with traditional, conventional medicine, making use of over the counter and prescription drugs as needed. It wasn't until I was an adult and experienced a nasty urinary tract infection. The bacteria were resistant to the conventional antibiotics that my doctor had prescribed. It wasn't until I tried taking regular doses of garlic that my infection would finally clear. This led me to research and dive into the world of herbal antibiotics, antivirals, and antifungals. It's amazing what nature can do! In this book, we will explore the subject of natural antibiotics, antifungals, and antivirals in more detail. We will look at various herbs that can be used as antibiotics, antivirals, and antifungals. Many substances are available in nature that have been tested and proven to treat bacterial, viral, and fungal infections. This book is a practical guide and not a textbook. In other words, the book offers a practical approach to using herbal remedies to treat everyday diseases. The guide is based on proven scientific facts. Unlike most herbal remedy books that offer instructions without indicating how the herbs work, this book offers more precise information. The book first categorizes herbs as either an antibiotic, antiviral, or antifungal before recommending them for use. Antiviral herbs will only be used to treat viral infections, although there are some herbs that can treat both bacterial and viral infections. To help you understand the book much better, I have divided it into four main sections. In the first section, we mainly focus on antiviral herbs. In this section, the book provides detailed information about viruses. Before you start using herbs to treat viruses, you should first understand what a virus is, how it is transmitted, and some symptoms of common viral infections. This chapter then covers a diverse range of antiviral herbs and how to use them. If you do not know how to apply any herbal product, it may not help treat the condition. In the second section of the book, we look at bacterial infections and how they occur. We also look at the possible symptoms of common bacterial diseases. We then look at proven antibiotics and how to apply them. While there are plenty of antibiotics in nature, you should follow a specific guideline when using these antibiotics. In the third section, we look at fungal infections, what they are, how they manifest, and symptoms of common fungal infections. We then look at the ways we can deal with most fungal infections by applying antifungal herbs. We look at a detailed list of antifungal herbs, their properties, and how they can be applied for effectiveness. In the last section of the book, we look at the overall body immunity. In the same way, we can use herbs to treat bacterial, viral, and fungal infections, we can also use herbs to boost the body's immune system. These herbs will help prevent the occurrence of these infections. Since disease prevention is more effective than treatment, the book gives you a detailed list of herbs that can boost your body immune to prevent attacks from viruses. You will want to add this title to your collection for future reference for treating these common infections in a natural way. Be sure to click "Buy Now" to add this book to your shopping cart.

Fungal infections have taken a new spectrum due to the increased incidence of multi-drug resistant fungal pathogens. Freedom of choice for drugs to treat fungal infections is also narrow because of lesser probability of discovering drugs that would bypass affecting human cells and target fungal cells producing fewer side effects in patients. An approach has gained prominence in research is to look for bioactive antifungal compounds from natural to synthetic sources. It is necessary to discover new classes of antifungals to control the recent emergence of multi-drug resistant fungal infections. This book proposed a details top to bottom outline of antifungal compounds derived naturally or synthetically. The details of their modifications or synthetic analogues have been described, helpful to understand the structure-activity relationship which leads to new compound development in antifungal chemotherapy. Each chapter begins with a comprehensive, top-bottom in-depth discussion of antifungal agents with updated bibliographic references. This compendium will serve as a companion not only for Scientists, Researchers, and Professors, Medical Practitioners but also a valuable reference text for the university students.

There are alarming reports of new and emerging microbial diseases. The recent emergence of COVID-19 is a burning example that has attracted global attention. Not only this, the development of multidrug resistance in microbes is frightening and thus the available antibiotics have been ineffective. Considering these facts, there is a pressing need to develop effective treatment options that are eco-friendly, biobased, and cost-effective. The present book covers the natural/bio-based products from plants, mushrooms and microbes that can be used against different microbial diseases caused by viruses, bacteria and fungi. This book would be an essential reading for students, researchers and people from pharma industries. Key features: • Describes the biobased natural products to combat microbial diseases. • Examines the antimicrobial potential of mushrooms, endophytes and secondary metabolites. • Discusses the role of defensins and terpenes in microbial diseases. • Incorporates natural products from the Amazon for treating microbial diseases.
