and I think people should know about plant medicine. Plant medicine should be known as a powerful means of building vitality, of addressing contemporary health topics ranging from longevity to mental clarity, inflammation to stress management and beyond. Instead of quaint and outdated, medicinal plant science is a crucial component of the future of wellness. The plant kingdom contains a kaleidoscopic spectrum of biologically active agents which directly interact with human physiology. Plants communicate with and naturally impact health pathways in the body, from our microbiome to our myelin sheaths — from our tissues to our telomeres. It is my honor to serve others with the awareness of the benefits of the natural world. My hope is that we may all come to commune more deeply with our planet, for she is erupting with medicine.

Client Testimonials

Altaire is a wonderful clinician. I am so happy to be able to work with her. She has warm welcoming energy and is so knowledgeable in her field of work. Every visit she checks in to see how I am. She listens and genuinely cares about my well being. She made me amazing concoctions for my mental/physical/emotional/ and spiritual body. Within a week I started seeing results in all aspects I was concerned about. She is an incredible teacher and healer and I would highly recommend her if you’re needing some healing in your life!
— Lexy Currier, Boulder, CO
Altaire is a complete joy to work with! She’s thorough, great to talk to, and truly listens to all of your needs and concerns. She takes the time to come up with an affordable and easy herbal protocol that works with your lifestyle. I would highly recommend Altaire to anyone searching for a holistic approach to health and wellness!
I came to Altaire on Nov 18 2018, with a chronic sleep imbalance that had been with me for years. Instead of recommending herbs, as I expected, she gently asked some very wise questions. We just talked! In the next few weeks, I began to understand all the ways I had trained my mind, body, and personal energy, to meet the demands of my previous career. This took the most time and effort. Soon, I realized the plain truth: I was still sleeping like I had a high stress job. Using only her skill in compassionate conversation, Altaire guided me to a brilliant realization about my life: That high stress garbage just wasn’t in it anymore. And I do not have sleep on a schedule set by others. Now, I sleep because I like it. Altaire- ‘Sam, its OK to just roll over, and go back to sleep.’ So true!
— Sam Johnson, Pagosa Springs, CO
I felt so taken care of by Altaire. I think the tea was very beneficial to my healing process after having my hip replacement. I drank all of the tea. Every day, I had two cups. It made me feel peaceful and more at ease in my body. I think it was helping to reduce the inflammation. It was the feeling of being soothed from the inside of me.

Thank you so very much for your work. I really appreciate it.
