AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- With the world facing a health crisis as antibiotics become less and less effective, a group is launching an Indiegogo campaign to create a video to teach people how to treat infected burns, wounds, and bites with natural herbal remedies.
"Pharmaceutical antibiotics are very much like the modern invention of fast food – they are quick, dangerous, and have a host of unintended consequences," said Marjory Wildcraft, founder the [Grow] Network, a global network of people who grow their own food and medicine. "Fortunately, just like the slow food movement, there are natural, holistic, and healthy ways to treat and heal the human body. These methods have been used effectively since ancient times."
"We are doing this Indiegogo campaign to create a video to teach how to treat major infections using only herbs and natural remedies. Anyone who watches and studies this video we create will be empowered and knowledgeable to do these treatments themselves," Wildcraft said.
"We are only asking for help for $15,000 to create the video called 'Treating Infections Without Antibiotics'. This is not the full amount we need, but it is enough that the [Grow] Network will be able cover the remaining costs."
Doug Simons is a Master Herbalist who, for decades, has been successfully treating infected burns, wounds, sprains, and lacerations with herbal techniques. "Herbal medicine is our human birthright. These techniques are effective; they have been used and handed down through the generations because they work," Simons said.
"In this video I will show you how to treat infected burns, wounds, snake bites, spider bites, and staph infections," Simons continued.

"It is very clear to us now that pharmaceutical antibiotics just aren't the way for humanity to go and we are lucky we have these time honored methods that are still very effective. These herbal techniques work in harmony with the body, not against it," Simons said.
The information in the video the [Grow] Network is proposing may come just in time. "Thankfully there are a few people left who know how to use these herbal medicinal techniques, because we are coming close to the point where your only other option may be death," Wildcraft said.
