Oh jeez

I like to peruse the ol’ iTunes Store for new podcasts, and happened to stumble across Susun’s show. I’ve been a proponent of herbs in the past; I’ve taken raspberry leaf tea like the best of ‘em. But I was listening in to the October 21 show. The first caller complained of major constipation and abdominal pain. As an aside, she listed off herbs she took for sleep, including poppy seed. Now, I’ve seen “Trainspotting.” I know that any and all poppy products and opiates have a tendency to cause constipation and, in some cases, serious abdominal pain and/or gastric bezoars. But, through either ignorance or sheer not-listening, Susan didn’t seem to notice. This is a long way of saying WOOF. I hope that caller gets the help she needs, though it probably won’t be from Susun.

Saddened by Susun's Behavior

I am shocked at how poorly Susun treats her followers/callers. These are the very people that allow her to exist on this platform. If she continues to treat every caller like they're a dimwit, she will have no one to listen or call on her before long. Talking over people, dissmissing their thoughts or concerns, rude crude responses...leave that to Howard Sterns of the world. Why have a show like this when she clearly has little deisre to speak with or educate those who are beneath her level of knowlege or skill? As a person who has studied human behavor most of my life, I strongly suggest she stick to writing books and allow the heart centered, knowledgeable beings around her to respond to the followers and callers. She's too high and mighty for her own good, her behavior on this VERY PUBLIC platform is a detriment to her life's purpose and work. I'll end by saying that I absolutly love Susun Weed and her work in this world, but I can't listen to her treat her loyal followers so poorly.
