A Woman’s Survival Guide to Mexican Healthcare is finally ready for release. The book covers the basics of the Mexican national healthcare system as it stands now, the reality of sexual assault, femicide, and abuse in Mexico, the role of the traditional curandera, and herbal remedies as alternative healing practices. Women living in all parts of Mexico (and Guatemala) candidly shared their health and wellness experiences so that other women will be better informed.
It is my hope that this book in some way empowers women who have moved to Mexico to have some measure control of their own healing. You can get it free at Amazon for the next few days.

If you are as fascinated with Mexico as I am or if you’re dreaming about making a move, this is an incredible resource to add to your collection. I love this book because it not only tells you everything you need to know about each Mexican holiday, the author also shares some personal stories which makes it more relatable to readers. I personally love reading various traditions and how they came about; for example, why do Mexicans eat 12 grapes at midnight on New Year’s Eve? I’m not telling but I can assure you, I’m going to be buying some grapes this holiday season 😄 I give this book five stars and highly recommend it. –Mima
