• Topical Antifungal Therapeutics with Western Herbs

Speaker: Paul Bergner, CN Plants have engaged in an “arms race” with fungi for many millions of years, and have evolved multiple mechanisms to inhibit their growth, disable their defenses, disrupt their biofilms, or destroy their cell membranes. We can take advantage of these mechanisms and apply whole plants, with all their synergistic constituents and activities, in direct contact with fungal-infected tissues. We review the Azole-class of pharmaceutical topical antifungals and then review the science and practical applications of the berberine-containing-herbs, Alliums, Calendula, thymol-containing herbs, Spilanthes/Acmella, Anemopsis, Commiphora, Usnea, Tabebuia, and Melaleuca for common oral, vaginal, and skin infections.
