Thank you for all your amazingness. I'm in a pinch...putting
it out to the universe to find some non - mainstream info
on Breast cancer.
I'm a herbalist and a doula right now, in Massage Therapy
college, doing a report for Pathology class. I'm trying to
educate wimmin in my class about prevention, mostly. I've
found some good info tidbits here and there but I remember
something you wrote that I kept on my fridge for years until
it was tattered. I think it came from an "Alive"
or maybe the Complete Mother magazine. It was something like,
10 ways to prevent breast cancer.
Unfortunately, this report is very picky and has to be, oh
so documented etc., so I need real sources, Can you help?
I don't think your book will get to the library quick enough,
and even tho my circle of wimmin has access to most of your
books, they don't have this one.
Thank you and blessings to you, Bethroot!
Susun's Response: check out my book
Bethroot, Susun is very, very busy now and I can't contact
her in the time frame that you need. Attached are a few articles
by her and excerpts from her book. Below you will find helpful
links, go to the Feminist Women's Health Center and you will
find enough info to get your documentation. There are tons
of references in Susun's book - if you get your report mostly
done with many of your sources completed, but you need help
with the finish, then send me another email asking for some
specifics and I will look them up in Weed's book. I know it
seems a pain to have to document, but it is oh so important,
especially when sharing life-saving info. Really lends credibility
to your "story".
Lots of love, Justine (Susun's daughter)
PS. would love to see your report when it is complete....
PPS. You can get Weed's breast book online from us if you

a mass in my Breast
I would like to join the mailing list. I want to ask you
a question. My doctor found a tiny mass in my breast. It's
not hard and it moves. She wants me to get a mammogram. I
don't believe in them. I'm 42 years young. I'm interested
to know your input on this situation.
Thank you, Marcy
Susun's Response: try castor oil packs
You know best what to do. If you want to try to dissolve
it, castor oil packs have been used for this purpose. If you
feel that you could have cancer, you may want a biopsy. A
mammogram cannot diagnose cancer, for that you must have a
Instructions for making castor oils packs are in my book

Deposits in my Breast
Really Great website! I have read your Breast Health book
& maybe I missed it, but is there a way to dissolve calcium
deposits in the breast? I have some in one of my breasts.
I thought you were saying burdock root, but I'm not sure if
it is only for lumps & cysts or if it will work on the
love to you, Melissa
Susun's Response: Re: calcium deposits
Great to hear from you. As far as I know, calcium is used
to replace any damaged breast cells. Every woman has at least
a few calcifications. Of course, they can indicate cancer,
where cells are dying. Sounds like yours are not that kind,
so no problem, no need to dissolve them. Actually, I don't
think they can be dissolved. Hope everything besides this
Lots of love and Green Blessings, Susun Weed

Thanks again for your reply. Are you saying that this extra
calcium is a sign that more cells have died in these deposit
spots than in other places? She was diagnosed with stage 2
(because it was just barely larger than an inch but with negative
nodes) after biopsy came back. The biopsy followed the suspicious
spot on the mammogram.
I had asked a woman I know who does medical intuitive work
to screen me (because I was having these weird twinges in
my breast). This was a week before my mom told me about having
the biopsy and she was waiting for the result. Her findings
about me were that I had a pattern that I got from my mother
about not nurturing myself, and this, was showing up as only
"calcification" in both of us. I stopped wearing
a bra instantly and 75 % of the discomfort has disappeared.
But there is a spot that still has me wondering and I don't
want to get a mammogram without at least doing some preliminary
efforts on my own.
I did get your book, and have been reading it. There is a
lot of information. I went to an acupuncturist who says I
am pre-pre-cancerous and has been treating me. I have done
a red clover infusion, not realizing that my period was imminent
and I had a very red and crampy onset. It just showed me how
powerful infusions can be. I will do more. I know your book
has more info for me to glean, but if you have any specific
I am all ears. ~ Melissa
Susun's Response: Re: anticancer lifestyle
Yes, when cells die (whether from injury or because they
are inside a cancer and so get no nutrition) they are replaced
with calcium deposits. There are no calcium deposits in healthy
alive cells. The calcifications, as they are called, occur
only where cells have died.
I believe that drinking red clover infusion will prevent cancer.
Just got an email from a woman who said she was declared free
of malignant cells for the first time in her life after drinking
red clover infusion daily for several months. In addition,
I would avoid tofu and soy beverage, both of which can promote
breast cancer. Lentils and other beans are far better allies
than soy. For women worried about breast cancer, I suggest
eating lentils at least three times a week. And you can drink
nettle infusion too. It is considered the best anticancer
herb in South America.
Many women find drinking red clover eliminates menstrual cramps.
I am surprised that the opposite seemed to happen to you.
Since it is a mild blood thinner, it makes the menses easier,
less clots, less cramps (usually).
Yes, lots of info in my breast book. Start by going to the
page with my Anticancer Lifestyle. That will give you enough
stuff to work on for quite a while.
I am concerned about an acupuncturist saying you are pre-cancerous.
That could be said about everyone. This person does not sound
trustworthy to me. I have lots of acupuncturist friends and
none of them has ever heard of a treat for pre-cancerous people.
Instead of a mammogram, see if you can get a thermogram. Cancer
is hot and it shows up much better in a temperature scan than
an x-ray scan.
You are strong wise and filled with life force. You can be
as healthy/whole/holy as you desire.

I would like to be included in your mailing list. I bought
your book on Breast cancer and appreciated your approach.
My mother starts radiation soon and I hope that she will take
in some of the nutritive pointers that you gave.
I have a question about soymilk. I understand that it can
stop protein digestion and has traditionally been eaten with
other proteins like fish (the digestion of which I assume
is not blocked by the soy protein blockers.)
The new soy milks', in addition to being organic, tout their
supplemented protein and calcium. Is this a remedy for the
structural problem or can it be remedied usefully to us humans.
I don't know if these newcomers postdate your research and
if it matters.
Thanks again, Gigi
Susun's Response: The problems with soy are deep and broad.
The problems with soy are deep and broad. They are not limited
to its interference with protein. Soy milk is loaded with
aluminum, it creates calcium and zinc shortages and chelates
out vitamins, such as B12. It shuts down the thyroid and causes
Did you see the new study which found that tofu consumption
correlated with dementia and Alzheimer's? The more soy eaten
the greater the mental decline.
In short, soy is not good food unless it is fermented (miso
and tamari) and is not eaten much by people who are healthy.
Soy milk is fake food. Fake foods destroy health. Real foods
create real, and healthy, people. Drink milk!!! or don't,
but don't use soymilk, please.
Lots more info on soy problems in "New Menopausal Years
the Wise Woman Way."
