Healing Wise ...
with Susun Weed

Eye Opening Information for Menopausal Women

* Don't take calcium supplements. Calcium makes bones more massive, but more brittle. A stout dry branch breaks easily, while a green one, no matter how thin, won't break at all. Food sources of bone-building minerals (such as yogurt, nettle infusion, dandelion vinegar, and cooked kale) include "flexibility" minerals such as magnesium, boron, and zinc and are a superior way to prevent bone breaks later in life says Weed.

* Gain some weight. Women who gain 10-15 pounds during their menopausal years have fewer hot flashes, stronger bones, and healthier hearts. (And most of them lose the extra weight in the following decade.)

* Try herbal hormones. Many common herbs and foods contain substances that can be used like estrogens by the body. This is much safer than taking estrogen supplements, which are known to promote uterine and breast cancers.

* Be outrageous. The emotional extremes - rage, depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts - that give menopausal women the label "hysterical", actually serve important functions in helping women come to terms with aging, death and profound personal growth.

* Bursting with tidbits of detailed information such as these, and rich with the forgotten wisdom of ancient times, New Menopausal Years The Wise Woman Way is the perfect guide for menopausal women of today.



Make An Infused Oil

excerpt from: Abundantly Well: Seven Medicines
by Susun Weed


Oil and animal fat coax a variety of healing compounds out of fresh plants.
Dried plants, with a few exceptions, will never make a great oil.


* Calendula oil calms inflammation and irritation.

* Chickweed (pictured) oil softens and dissolves cysts and scars.

* Comfrey oil is tricky from fresh; heals tears and breaks.

* Plantain oil stops itching, hastens deep wound recovery.

* St. Joan's wort oil eases burns, muscle soreness, nerve pain.

Fill a dry jar almost full with finely-chopped fresh herb, then fill with any edible oil/fat.

Cap tightly. Label (on lid). Put in a smallbowl to catch ooze.

Steep, out of direct sunlight, for six weeks.

Sieve plant material from oil, squeeze well.
