A NOTE FROM ALESS...

Natural medicine has always been an essential part of my life. I grew up in a house hold where my mother used many remedies passed down through my lineage and ancestors of both African and Indigenous peoples traditions. My grandmother was the village herbalist in the small town where she grew up in Brazil, decocting medicine to help support the community - a radical movement in that time as providing herbal medicine was not legal in that time. She supported many causes that were ignored by medical practitioners in that time, helping to revitalize all people but mostly women in physical distress needing support.

Learning herbal medicine has allowed me to be supportive to an entire community of people who have sought more for their health and who are wanting to follow a deeper path to connecting with nature and themselves.

Working with plants has allowed me to personally heal physically. I am especially interested in working with women who are seeking hormonal balance, fertility issues, reproductive health and menopause. I provide a wide spectrum of support using herbal medicine - both internal and topical applications.
