As we head into cold and flu season, I’m redoubling my efforts at staying healthy. I’m eating oodles of mandarinas that have arrived fresh off the tree at the fruteria. I’ve upped my intake of vitamins, including C & D. And I’ve incorporated even more garlic into my meals. These few things coupled with sensible social distancing and hand washing, well, here’s hoping for an illness-free holiday season.
Along those lines, I’m also delighted to announce the publication of The Mexican Apothecary: Traditional Cold and Flu Herbal Remedies, now available on Amazon. In this beautifully illustrated book (with drawings by Claudia Guzes), you’ll discover information about more than 70 cold and flu remedies commonly used in Mexico including traditional treatments for:
- Stuffy noses and congestion
- Sore eyes and earaches
- Nausea and diarrhea
- Sore throat and cold sores
There are also 44 plant studies with well-researched scientific support for each herb’s specific use as traditional alternative medicine.
Recently, I chatted with Roxana Bangura from the Bangura Chronicles about the validity of herb use for wellness and we talked about my book. You can check out that conversation here:

If you are interested in downloading the Bugambilia Cough Remedy information I talk about with Roxana, you can do that below.
In other herb news, my book, Exploring Traditional Herbal Remedies in Mexico: An Introduction to Natural Healing was inducted into the Great On Kindle Program. When you buy the kindle version of this book, you get credit towards another book purchase from the Great On Kindle Program. It’s quite an honor for little ol’ me.
Any of these herb books would make great gifts, for yourself or another health-minded loved one!
