Hi Susun,

I just read your article in the mid-month newsletter about tips for breast health!
I've read your book on that topic as well. I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my soul for the work that you do and for your sharing and loving nature. I think of you often -- in fact I long to live in the woods and become a crone in my soul. Your writings help me stay grounded and fearless.

Thanks for everything!

Dear Susun,

I have read your books for years and find your knowledge immensely helpful.
Thank you. …

Best wishes,
A dios,





I have enjoyed browsing your website, which has been ultimately helpful to me! I have found the menopause information to be very helpful and your healing tips. I am a survivor of brain cancer twice, thank you mother nature! I would like to request your newsletters.

Thank you very much for all the knowledge you share,


I am a indian woman of 51 and It was very great to see your site and read the articles.

Thank you so much, for the good articles.

The Menopause article is really a great one for me , as I am still having regular periods and am likely on the verge of its ending, I think..The article was very useful to me, and also to know and learn the interesting fact about enjoying the HOT FLUSHES, and not to get mentally stuffed up, and make our lives much more worrysome within ourselves.

I would like to be put on the regular mailing list, so that I can enjoy all the articles.

thanking you,



Thank you for the e-mails you send. I enjoy them very much. I have always believed in holistic everything. Now the older I get (61 years young) the more I believe…
Thank you again




I've learned so much from your books etc. I trust your advice above anyone else's.




Hi Susun,

I just want to say that I just got your book on the childbearing years and I love it. …
Thanks so much. I have read many herbal books and like yours the best. I feel truly connected to nature when I am making my nettle infusion.

I just purchased the wonderful 25th Anniversary CD and enjoyed hearing all
the songs. The Scarlet Poppies song really spoke to my heart, lyrics and music. I'm
just learning to play the piano (again) after being away from it for many
decades. Is there any possibility of getting the sheet music for this
lovely song? It is beautiful.

Thank you,

p.s. love your website!



Thanks so much for your reply and the links. I really want to learn more. I can't believe that after 4 days of drinking nettle infusions all the energy I have. I can play all day with my toddler without feeling like crashing at 8pm. Unbelievable!!

Thanks you so much for your time - and please tell Susun she is amazing!



I have just read the article about hysterectomies and it has made me feel sane again – I have been so struggling with painful sex and bowel problems since my hysterectomy! My GP advised against it saying the fibroids which were the reason the surgeon suggested the hysterectomy would in fact shrink in menopause – how I wished I had listened! At least I know I am not imagining things!

Thank you !



My early menopause symptoms showed up right around the time I had a spontaneous Kundalini activation in 1996. I was so comforted to find Susun's article/comments (I forget which now, it's been so long since I read it) at the time about Kundalini and menopause since I had already had some similar thoughts. I think emphasizing the spiritual transformation aspects of this process is critical to maintaining and even enhacing women's health. …

Kind regards,



Thanks … for your wonderful resources and support for women.



Thank you so much. I have been drinking infusions every day.

I also want you to know I have received my books and tapes they are such a gift. Thank you all so much for all you have given me this last six months. Have a truly wounderful day Happy Halloween

God bless you all.



hi Susun,

today I joined John Gallghers website and saw your video interview you had
with him. It was wonderful but even more than that.
I began to cry.It is interesting to note that many emotions came through my body while
watching the interview.

First and foremost, I see you as a powerful woman, and one I had feared in a
sense. I dont exactly know why, but possibly because you are a Witch and I
am a Christian (open minded however and very earth friendly). Most people
think the two cannot be at peace much less agree. Maybe more than that. I dont know.

Susunweed.com has been a huge blessing to my life
1. you have so much to share with people that you offer for free. Now that is amazing.
2. Your books are reasonable and full of help
3. Justine is awesome!
4. The forums are a great outlet to share or ask questions
5. Lately I write more and it has been an outlet for me to share my writing.
6. You are an amazing herbalist which I should have put as number 1:)

But today as I watched with delight the interview and the tears came, I
realized that you are as an herbal mother to me. Your work was some of the
first work that crossed my path. How I have hung my hat on everything you
share. Seeing the interview today was more than someone whom I feared, but
it was someone whom I love.

I just wanted to share that with you today.

One day my dream and prayer is to be able to attend an herbal gathering and
I hope you will be there so I can meet you face to face and talk with you.
And in case I dont say it then, I will say it now. Thank you for your bold
voice sharing with women how we can live in our society as healers, or just
everyday people who want to live the best life possible.
That being a woman is a beautiful and powerful role in society and one we
must not take lightly. It is healthy to be out there in the world making a

Thank you for so much.
May I be an herbal light in this world like you are.
