Calcium Rich Infusions

I hope it's okay to ask you a question. I make an infusion everyday that includes oatstraw, horsetail, and nettles for calcium. I place a heaping tablespoon of each in a quart jar and let it sit for 12 hours before drinking, this is correct? I've been using your menopause book as reference for 3-4 years, but since I've never discussed making the infusions with anyone I sometimes wonder if I'm doing this correctly?

Thank you so much for offering us an alternative way of approaching this chapter in life.

Susun's Response: making infusions is easy!

No, you are not doing it correctly. Please reread the instructions: it says to use a full ounce of herb, that's about one cup by volume, or 8-10 times more herb than you are using. If a cup of nettle infusion made with an ounce of herb contains 500 milligrams of calcium, then what you are making contains only 50 milligrams. Not so good. Use more herb!!!
