What makes this book so valuable and different from other medical guides is that it provides information about natural cures from herbs and homeopathy from a medical doctor.
READ the Whole Story
Each chapter provides down-to-earth suggestions that your grandmother would have suggested when you got sick. We used to refer to those remedies as “old wives tales,” but yet many medical practitioners now agree that even chicken soup has qualities that heal. And so this book, COUGH CURES, is a journey into the world of simple, tried and tested methods for our everyday cures for today’s illnesses. Some of the chapter titles are very revealing about the contents: For example, “Fever, pain and sleep”; “Beware of herbs from he Internet”; “Avoid antibiotics for colds, coughs and flu”; And each chapter is written in such an easy-to-read manner, that the information flows and consists of many “yahoo moments.”
What I especially admired about this book is that Dr. Ferrer explains the positives and negatives of many herbs, vitamins, overthe- counter drugs and pharmaceuticals. As Dr. Ferrer instructs the readers, beware of what medical information you gather from the Internet. Always discuss what you need with your doctor. This book is like a bible that should be kept out and open for easy reference. There is a powerful bibliography and index at the back of the book. I’m sure this book was a long and tedious adventure but the good it will do for you is worth every minute it required to produce.
My greatest suggestion for 2018 is to buy and keep COUGH CURES at your home, in an open place for others to see and examine. I’m sure it will be a conversation starter.
Dr. Gustavo Ferrer’s life encompasses both traditional and modern forms of medicine. He was trained as a physician and pulmonologist in Cuba, moving on to universities in the US, where he founded the Cough Center for Cleveland Clinic. He has lectured throughout the US and internationally and is currently involved in multiple research studies. He founded ICE, a pulmonology center in Aventura. He lives with his wife, Nicole and daughters in Weston. Burke Lennihan, RN has spent over 30 years in different aspects of holistic health care. She has taught physicians about homeopathy and teaches heart-centered meditation at Harvard. Go to her website: www.yournaturalmedicinecabinet.com.

[Editorial note: I had sheer joy, anger, exhilaration and all the other feelings arise when I experienced this movie. I hope all our politicians see this movie so they can bring back big heartfelt decisions about laws affecting people that have familial situations different from theirs.]
READ the Whole Story
That would be plenty nerve-wracking on its own, but Auggie has more to worry about than the average new middle schooler: Born with a genetic abnormality, he has a significant facial difference. Twenty-plus surgeries in his short life have left him able to hear, see, and speak like other kids, but he definitely doesn’t look like them. And since he can’t wear his beloved astronaut helmet all day at school, he has to face them all in person.
It’s far from easy; kids call him names (“Darth Hideous,” “Gollum”) and bully him, and even his parents can’t talk away the hurt. But Auggie isn’t the only one facing challenges: His older sister, Via (Izabela Vidovic), feels like their parents, Isabel and Nate (played by Owen Wilson) barely pay attention to her because Auggie needs so much from them.
His new friend, Jack Will (Noah Jupe), genuinely likes Auggie but doesn’t know how to speak up for him in school. Via’s former best friend, Miranda (Danielle Rose Russell), seems tough on the outside but is grappling with difficult family issues. And even bully Julian (Bryce Gheisar) has his own problems. As Auggie navigates his first year of school, he—and all the people around him—learn to think more of others and find happiness inside themselves. Don’t miss it!
(Review from Common Sense Media)
I had advertised in a multitude of media, but the best response so far has been working with Anita Finley on her radio show and Boomer Times magazine for the increase of patients.

Thank you – both of you – for your outstanding promotion of my book and for keeping me informed every inch of the way. I am enjoying all of the attention.
Hi Dan, Thank you and Anita for giving me an outlet to let people know about my books. It has been a terrific experience and one that I’ll cherish for a long time.
