Author Susan E Mead

A headshot of SusanSusan’s love of words and writing dates back to her childhood in 1960′s Western Nebraska, when she’d often find solace in books and writing poetry. Journaling became a lifelong friend, as well as a form of self-therapy when life presented its inevitable challenges.

Shortly after establishing her practice as a Master Herbalist in 1996, it became clear to Susan that there would be a limited number of clients she could assist individually along their path toward healthier living. This sparked the idea for the creation of a monthly newsletter mailed to clients and others upon request. The newsletter later morphed into an electronic version to minimize the environmental impact and make it easier for interested readers to absorb quickly. Now known as “Susan’s Simple Tips”, this e-newsletter focuses on using old-fashioned common sense from Grandma, while keeping you current on the latest health issues–and sometimes-questionable treatments. Subscribe here to begin receiving your free copy of Susan’s monthly newsletter.

It took several years of writing newsletters, articles and jotting down simple health tips before Susan seriously began considering including them in a book. Originally titled Simplify Your Health, Susan started rough drafts of what would later become Take Back Your Body. After many caring revisions, assistance from a great book shepherd, editor, layout editor and many other valued team members, Susan received the first shipment of her newly published book in 2009. Visit the bookshop page to learn more about the book and order your own copy!

In 2014, Susan created a series of Health-E-Booklets and released the first in this series in July, 2014: Focus on Hemorrhoids, because this was the most searched ailment on the internet. She plans to continue to build upon this series as long as it’s needed. Learn more about the E Books here.

In addition to her books, blog, and e-newsletter, Susan has contributed articles to The Healing Path, Health Central News, Herbs for Health and others who promote simple and effective healing without automatically turning to pharmaceutical drugs and surgery. I am always open to freelance work on a wide range of topics. Contact us for more information.
