“Herbs For Healthy Skin”
has been published as an ebook by Mushroom Publishing (www.mushroom-ebooks.com) and is available for $3.99. Here is what Kathleen Brown, author of "“Herbal Teas: 101 Nourishing Blends for Daily Health & Vitality” says about the book: “With a straightforward matter-of-fact style, Dr. Cindy Jones' book about herbs for healthy skin is a treasure trove of information. This e-book is a sure sign of future publishing, with a concise and condensed style that is quick to read and easy to use. Although she has an excellent, strong background in the more technical aspects of herbs, Dr. Jones' e-book is presented at a level anyone can understand and enjoy. I always love books with lots of recipes, and hers is no disappointment. This is the kind of book one can peruse and immediately put to use, making all sorts of potions and lotions for healthy skin. Both her knowledge and love of herbs and the desire to share and inspire readers is readily apparent."
Antibiotic Use Still High
The British Medical Journal (December 7, 2002) states that prescription rates for colds is still over 60% despite guidelines that discourage antibiotic prescriptions for these viral infections. To learn more about how the overuse and misuse of antibiotics has become a serious public health issue read “The Antibiotic Alternative” by Cindy L. A. Jones, Ph.D.
