Speaker: Paul Bergner. Bacteria responsible for hard-to-treat chronic conditions often exist in biofilm matrices which can evade attack by host immunity or pharmaceuticals. Plants have been in an evolutionary arms race with biofilms for more than 700 million years and some have developed sophisticated methods of killing bacteria and disrupting their ability to form biofilms. We discuss Allium, Hydrastis, Mahonia, Arctostaphylos, Acalypha and several other herbs, and their possible effects on chronic wounds, ulcers, sinus infection, bladder infection and vaginal infection. 16SW26
