I’m working to keep this herbal practice as affordable, reasonable and as relevant for our communities as possible. Let me know if you are interested in working together. Our peoples have been doing this work for thousands, millions of years so I feel and think it is so important to continue these traditions and work.
I write “working together” to be clear, because taking responsibility and action to improve the health for each one of us and how that is connected to that of our communities y la Madre Tierra is up to each of us. Given the heavy challenges we face where health is seen as a commodity, as is food, health care, housing, education and how oppression has tried to take our healing powers away from us, it is not easy. Practice does make it easier and determining what we each do to make the world better, reclaiming our power and connecting to the power de la Madre Tierra, and what we eat and how we use herbal medicine is incredibly rewarding.
I will work with you on your budget, the important thing for me is for you to improve your health, to create a space together to take care of yourself & to reduce harm, and learning together to use the least invasive means to do so. We each can all take responsibility for our health individually and with each other, we can reduce the harm this society does to each of us and to our communities. Nature has always nurtured us when we have treated her well, and she will continue to do so as we care for her, La Madre Tierra, and we continue to evolve together for millions more years.
Here”s hoping and working hard to make that happen!

Food/Nutrition – many scientists, doctors and other “professional” folks are finally coming around to recognize what community healers have known for ages —> food is the best medicine. IF we can eat well in a country that commodifies food, we are well on our way to health. Eating with the seasons, locally, wholesome and less processed and as organically as possible are huge steps in helping our body, heart, mind and spirit to strengthen itself to live a long and happy life.
