Dear Susun,

I am new to your website and have not yet had time to read it all, but I
plan to. I would like to say thank you for your help eleven years ago when I felt all alone in the beginning of menopause and so little information was available. I found one of your books ( a dark pink) cover and was calmed, helped, and intrigued by it.



Dear Susun

best wishes


Dear Susun-

I have long been a reader of your wonderful books and wisdom. I have also long wanted to attend your workshops, especially the moon lodges.

Hi Susun

… I have to say since I've found you, I'm very excited to read some of your books and hopefully be able to come to learn from you. I am an aspiring herbalist and healer. I learning from an Herioc tradition but find your point of view and theory on it very intersting …

I look forward to reading you book and expanding my knowledge and possibly even changing the way I view herbs, healing and health.
Thank you,




I found you on ezinearticles, love your information.




Dear Wise Woman

I had conceived, carried and delivered my child in northern India and wild harvested the nettles around the mountain side, boiled and drank them as soup. I feel it nourished my pregnancy - I did not have any side effects and my dear child came to the world naturally, within an hour and is healthy. I thought this would be useful for the question on nettles from a mother in India. I cannot say that the easy delivery was due to nettles but i did not suffer any side effects from nettles. I feel that the wisdom always is never too over-consumed something and use in moderation. Hope this was helpful.

Take care green faeries.



Just wanted to let you know that I took the red clover infusions from April through June (one cup a day), and yesterday I heard my new baby's heartbeat!!! I will be 12 weeks tomorrow. My husband, our 8 year old son and I are all very happy. I am a Christian, so I give God all the credit for this miracle, but I believe the red clover infusions definitely increased my fertility! (I believe God created the red clover for our benefit, and he gave us wisdom to use it!)

I had lost my right fallopian tube 8 years ago when I had a c-section when my son was born. But even more miraculous, I ovulated on my right side when I became pregnant! The ultrasound tech confirmed this 5 weeks ago. She said "are you sure you don't have a tube on the right side? " She also said "That was one determined egg!"

Should we desire to become pregnant again, I will not hesitate to take red clover infusions again. Any women I speak with about fertility, I will certainly recommend the red clover!

Please accept my thanks. Thank you for having knowledge and wisdom about herbs, and thanks for sharing it with women around the world!!!

God Bless,Melissa

I am so excited to read your articles and i am looking forward to receiving your book.

Thank you so much



Thanks to you I finally found information on what to apply to the white patch that I've had since the beginning of menopause. [plantain]



Dear Susun,

It was great getting your Newsletter and also reading about your history about the birth of your duaghter. I so respect your ongoing leadership in the world of "feminine Wiles". In your photos you look better and happier than last I saw you, quite a few years ago. Time seems to be treating you better****

I am even older than you, and in the days I gave birth to Laurie, (she just turned a georgeous 51). It was my great good fortune, I wanted natural childbirth and to nurse her, and did so with the championing of an enlightened Doctor at New York Hospital. In fact he used me as an example of natural childbirth.Your interview reminded me of my own history.

A big hug,
