I found your web site at a time in my life when I needed some help. Thank
you for your site it has been a blessing.




Thank you for your mistake! I must not have clicked the link on sage, so when I clicked to read about pine I got that article, most needed at this time. I was first introduced to herbal medicine through your Wild Woman’s Garden booklet, and have been an avid fan ever since.

Thank you for all you have done for me and countless other women. ~Teri




…Now that you have reassured me I have returned to my usual easy going self. I would like to take this opportunity to tell you that I think the Ezine is terrific and always enjoy receiving it. I especially enjoyed your very human input with the last one. Tis nice to know there are humans behind the technology!



I am an old Crone living in Ireland and am a great fan of Susun's and her books. I began growing and using herbs 35 years ago and one of my first herbal books was Juliette's.

on the subject.

Thank you for sending the DVD so quickly

I loved the April one-day workshop, thank you so much! I loved EVERY minute of the weekend...absolutely amazing, and more than I thought it could be.

Thanks again!



Dear Karen, …

Don't laugh but when I received Susun's "autograph" I carried it around the house in honour. I was so tickled to receive it, she is a woman I have long honoured and respected.



Dear Susun,

… I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your wisdom and insight with the world. You have inspired and nurtured me by helping me get in touch with my own inner wise woman. I consulted Wise Woman herbal for the childbearing years throughout my 3 pregnancies, two of which were homebirths after cesarean.

Thank you so very much… Susun.



Thanks for your time and energy writing the news letter!! I love reading it.

Much Thanks for this very informative mail, I save all of them so that I can read over. I am always interested in knowing more about my health and well being, and your articles provide me so much info. I am not able to afford all the expensive stuff, but when some thing like garlic comes along I will do just fine.

Thanks again.

Hugs Wendy Ann..
All the way from the Caribbean..


I'm already on the once a year mailing list but would love to be on the email list …

Susun is such a inspiration to me - just the other day I was researching some things to do for a yeast infection- I read a few sites and was feeling deflated- then I went to the Wise Woman site and of course Susun's wisdom reminded me how I had taken care of it last year - it's funny how one can forget to use their own intuition when one gets overwealmed.




Susun ( or whoever's reading this),

I am a woman journeying through menopause and your book is my guide and




Dear Susun,

I'm a big fan of yours and all your lovely goddess friends! I love going to your website to learn and explore the old wise woman traditions! I've got a collection of your books...and love them all. I am very interested in your home study course…

Thank you for being such in inspiration to me and other woman out there! Keep up the good work! You are loved and appreciated!




Hello Susun,

I am very interested in learning how to identify, grow and utlize herbs (for medicinal and dietary purposes), especially the ones that are native to the northeast and grow in my backyard. For this purpose I looked up the course offerings on your website and they all looked so good!

The Green Allies Correspondence course seems to suit my needs at this point in time…

In addition, the Green Goddess Apprentice week intensives apeals to me too. …
… Thanks for all the information on your website.

Blessings and joy to you,




I just wanted to say thank you for your newsletter (and your books). I find it empowering and comforting to learn about the amazing healing power the universe provides for us in the form of plants. Thanks again.




Hello dearest Susun,

I have been a follower of yours for a number of years and the experience has
been wonderful.

Thank you so very much.

Dear Susun

I have a much treasured copy of your book ‘Menopausal Years the Wise Woman Way’ and have also been travelling joyfully round your website…

Kind regards




Hi Susun,

I was just introduced to your books and teachings. This is the wisdom I have been seeking so thank you…A friend of mine is an herbalist who speaks highly of you …

I have read much on your website and the wise woman way speaks to my depths so thank you again for sharing this path. What a journey!




Just read your article about headaches. It was so thorough and well done.

Thanks so much.




My job consists of visiting with people who are sick. I was at a woman's house today and she is slowly losing all functioning and is housebond. We got on the discussion of herbs and I told her about this web site. Her eye lit up! She had been crying and so frustrated with everything and was cheered up when we spoke about the Wise Woman. Just thought you might want to know.




I really like your web site. I like the 'Be Your Own Herbal Expert'
pages a lot. …




Thanks for the prompt delivery. So quick, as I live downunder (Australia). I was thrilled to receive the DVD and books.

I am not a herbalist. I am a medium for spiritual healing with a particular calling to animals. I do know a little of the use of herbs for healing so the books will be of good use to me in my learning.

Thank you again.

With Love



...your wise woman in the childbearing year book is my bedside companion. I have given many copies as gifts over the years and love the book …..
