Dear Susun Weed,

About 1994 I been flooding for a month…. a friend handed me a copy of Menopausal Years the Wise Woman Way. We looked up flooding and I went out and bought shepherds purse, made an infusion and stopped flooding the next day. I never let that book out of my sight. . And am glad to see this web site and would like to be on your emailing list.

Thank you, (! ! ! ! ! ! !)



I just wanted to thank you for all you have done to spread the word of the wise woman, it has changed my life and it continues to change daily!

I discovered your site about a year ago, and since I have started drinking infusions of Nettles, oatstraw and red clover since I was willing to try anything after going to several drs. and none of them could help me. Long story short...I am healing! I have been feeling better for about a year now (unless I stop doing the infusions...never again!) and am now spreading the word and send your information to everyone, also recommending your awesome books which are herbal bibles to me! I am also a part of the wise woman forum in googlegroups.

Thank you again, for blessing me and countless others!

I was just looking over your site and I really love the way that you empower women naturally. So many woman think of money as power, and you really prove that everything comes from within, because women are amazing beings.

Thank you for showing that to me. ….
Thank you so much for everything!



Hello Ms. Weed

Thank you for taking the time to read my e-mail. I first want to say I am amazed by your practical wisdom when it comes to herbs and have learned so much from you by reading your websites and three of your books that I own (Healing Wise, Breast Cancer? Breast Health!, and New Menopausal Years). Chock-full of practical and accessible info! You are an "herbal gem!"

. …I have been drinking nettle infusion (2 cups a day--sipping slowly throughout the day) for over 6 months. My nails have never been so strong…

Well Wishes,



I have been reading over all your information about fertility…Very helpful

Thank you,



Please include me on your ezine mailing list. I have numerous friends who will also benefit from the wealth of information you offer!




I have to say thank you a million times over. You helped me through a miscarriage and then to become fertile again and now I have a beautiful baby boy!!

…Thanks a million for all your help.








Wow, this apprenticeship sounds very powerful and life-changing, which is exactly what I need in my life right now. My life has transformed so beautifully this last year, but I have so much more to give. I want to embrace my roots as a healer and have been seeking a teacher/mentor to guide me in this process…

Love and Light,



Hi, Susun,

I have so loved all of your writing and wisdom…

Hello Susun,

First, an endless thank you for all the enlightening & empowering wisdom you have brought into our world. No further words possible; i send you blessings every time you come to mind, since publication of the first book in 1985. So now out of the Childbearing Years realm & into Menopausal (having lived lavishly & devotedly by the principles and practice you espouse for 21 yrs, after a major health disaster)-- have scoured the purple book many times. ….

Again, thanks always,




I have just been reading the posts from Karen Joy with a woman who was unable to hold a pregnancy. Your advice looked wonderful and I am going to follow it as well as I can. …

Thank you so much!



Would you so kindly add me to the list of receing your a bundance of excellent writings and invaluable information.

Many thanks to all of you ~ Bridget



Dear Susun

I am 52 and having a few symptoms of my latest jouney into another phase of my life. …. I found your book on the internet and couldn't wait to start reading all about This Wise Woman! I was so excited that 3 days into reading I got my period (it was the very first time that I was late ~ 10 weeks late) …Thank you for coming into my life at this very special time. Thanks to you I am now keeping my menopausal journal for my 3 daughters. I couldn't have found this at a better time. I feel as if I know you. You and your book are going to be my very good companion for the next several years.

Love Deb
