The Wise Woman tradition is a spiral of uniqueness, says Susun Weed. The Wise Woman tradition is ever-changing, like a woman, earth centred and compassionate.
It urges us to use our local weeds instead of miracle pills and, above all, it honours the Earth.
Weed is an energetic woman. She constantly writes, trains dozens of apprentices, oversees hundreds of correspondence course students and coordinates the activities of the Wise Woman Center. Her worldwide teaching schedule encompasses herbal medicine, ethnobotany, pharmacognosy, psychology of healing, ecoherbalism, nutrition, and womens’ health.
She is a High Priestess of Dianic Wicca, a member of the Sisterhood of the Shields, and a Peace Elder.
She has received the Twentieth Century Award for Achievement, is included in Who’s Who of Intellectuals, was recognised as an Outstanding Person of the 20th Century, and nominated as International Woman of the Year.
As I said, an energetic woman
Since she began studying herbal medicine more than thirty-five years ago, Weed has garnered an international reputation for her groundbreaking lectures, teachings, and writings on health and nutrition, which frequently challenge conventional medical approaches and are unabashedly pro-woman.
For example, for more than a decade she has been an outspoken voice warning about the dangers of hormone replacement therapy. The scientific community has only recently documented HRT’s connection to breast cancer and heart attacks.
Expert herbalists and well-known women’s health physicians such as Susan Love, MD, Christiane Northrup, MD, and Rosemary Gladstar recommend her books.
For a new generation of women, she has completely rewritten, expanded, and updated her famous menopausal bible, which has sold half a million copies and has been a top-ten seller for a decade. In New Menopausal Years, Weed is passionate about natural health
