Tooting My Own Book Horn

In addition to my interview with Toni Lontis and being featured in The Edge Magazine, I also fiddled around with getting some books in a physical (or rather a metaphysical) store in North Dakota. 

Here’s my highlight from SOS Holistic Healing Center.

That concludes my promotional activity for the month. Whew! I’m nearing completing Herb book #4, so look for a launch announcement towards the end of May. Herbs..herbs…herbs…


Order from Amazon!

New Herb Book in Spanish

February has another COMPLETE writing project! I’m tickled pink, well maybe green, that El boticario mexicano: Remedios herbales tradicionales para el resfriado y la gripe has been released! 

It took some time between the English and Spanish versions because, of course, it had to be translated! My son was the lead on that! He even signed up for a Spanish spelling course online of his own volition during the months he spent hammering away at the translation. 

Then the formatting took a bit of time because the program I previously used went to a monthly plan rather than a one-time fee per book, and as I have, well, I don’t know exactly how many books I have out now, but a lot of books, and paying for that would break the bank. So I had to learn how to format using another program. 

Anyway, it’s ready now, and in celebration, both the English and Spanish ebook versions are FREE for the next few days.


Don’t forget about the Exploring Traditional Herbal Remedies in Mexico series.

The Mexican Apothecary

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:

  • Cough
  • Stuffy noses and congestion 
  • Headaches 
  • 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:

Mexican Traditional Herbal Remedies with Author C.E. Flores

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!
