Great on Kindle Status Earned!!!

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. It’s by Amazon invitation only and quite an honor for little ol’ me.

What it means is that when you buy the kindle version of this book, you get credit towards another book purchase from the Great On Kindle Program, which are all high-quality non-fiction.

Don’t forget to check out The Mexican Apothecary: Traditional Cold and Flu Herbal Remedies as you hunt for great holiday gifts. Either of these herb books would make great gifts, for yourself or another health-minded loved one!

  • Headaches 
  • Sore eyes and earaches

There are also 44 plant studies with well-researched scientific support for each herb’s specific use as traditional alternative medicine.

It’s the perfect gift to yourself for cold and flu season!
