THE JOURNEY FROM COUGH CURES TO CURA TU TOS
Dr. Gustavo Ferrer published his first book, COUGH CURES: The Complete Guide to the Best Natural Remedies and Over-the-Counter Drugs for Acute and Chronic Coughs, on April of 2016. The successful book launch was held at the Huizenga School of Business building at NOVA South Eastern University. He had the honor of being introduced by Major General Loeffke who also shared a few words on the benefits of this amazing book. Many attended, from stay-at-home moms to medical students who see integrative medicine as a benefit to the American healthcare system. As Loeffke stated, “We’ve needed this book for years.”
Dr. Ferrer has many family members, friends, and colleagues that speak Spanish and one of the most frequent questions asked was “Do you have this book available in Spanish?” As a native to Cuba, this question inspired Dr. Ferrer to write the Spanish version of the Cough Cures. He felt this was important because he recognizes the need for this book in Latin American countries where the unregulated pharmacies sell dangerous over-the counters of unproven efficacy.
After 6 months of hard work translating, developing, and proofreading the Spanish version, it was finally completed. CURA TU TOS con los Remedios de Abuelita was launched on October 6, 2016 in the DR. It was a hit! He was pleasantly surprised to see over 160 people attend despite Hurricane Mathew. It had passed over Haiti and DR as a powerful category 4 hurricane just days before. Regardless of the massive amounts of flooding, people drove from all over the country to attend the event.
The largest book store in the Dominican Republic, Libreria Cuesta, has reported that the books are flying off the shelves! They are constantly restocking to keep up with the demand. After his debut on national TV, newspapers and radio, Dr. Ferrer was invited to return to the DR and speak in multiple cities. He hopes to not only improve the health and quality of life of the people, but to also improve the HealthCare system in the Dominican Republic as well as all Latin America.
Dr. Ferrer has expressed his heart felt gratitude through a video in Spanish dedicated to all who attended the book launch and to all who made the event possible. Click Here to view.
