And finally, I’m 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.
It’s the perfect gift to yourself for cold and flu season!
Mexican herbalism has often been overlooked by North American herbalists because most remedies have not been written down. Furthermore, many native plants are misidentified even by botanists. This volume of Exploring Traditional Herbal Remedies in Mexico: Learning About Culture Through Plant Use looks at some commonly miscategorized native plants and their traditional uses.
In this book you’ll discover:
◆30 Mexican plants used in traditional remedies
◆Dozens of herbal treatments for common ailments
◆Accurate botanical identification of native Mexican plants

You can read about how our family has prepared for everything from the Apocalypse to Zombies, including pandemics, economic collapse, and kakistocracy while you practice social distancing.
This compilation was a result of my participation in the A to Z Challenge in 2016 and my first blog to book project, so yet another reason why it’s a fitting end for the series of posts on Content Creative this month.
