Greetings! My name is Tami Bronstein, and I am a UK-qualified Medical Herbalist.
My greatest purpose, in life, is to be of-service in assisting you.
Alternative and Integrative Medicine is my vehicle, so that you may, in-turn, pursue your own life path for creating and connecting, with passion and vital energy.
My work & career.
It began in the Health & Fitness realm with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Physiology, from Hofstra University (New York). I knew I believed in the healing powers of movement and breath, and that I could not work in a conventional 9-5 atmosphere, after a childhood enjoying the world of dance, theater and performing arts.
I became a consultant for corporate & hospital wellness programs, private health clubs, and taught as Adjunct Faculty at a local community college for several years.
After a couple of years post-grad, I ventured into the world of pain & rehabilitative therapies through Certifications in NeuroMuscular, Myofascial, Osteopathic & Joint mobilization techniques.
I realized early-on that my interests in Herbal Medicine since high school could help the people in my care, yet, many were on a wide array of prescription medications for extensive medical concerns. So, in 1998, I was accepted into the Bachelor of Science program for Herbal Medicine at the University of Wales/College of Phytotherapy (East Sussex, England, UK).
The adventure overseas had begun!
Graduating with Honours in 2003, I opened my Apothecary in Highland Park, New Jersey.
Of course, the formal education didn’t stop there. In 2008, I returned to the UK for post-graduate study at Middlesex University in London. I began ongoing work-study with medical doctors of Paris, France in their groundbreaking work with the NeuroEndocrine approach to patient assessment, utilizing plant medicine remediation.
Since that time, my philosophy and approach to healing would never be the same again!
Along the way, I traveled extensively providing in-home and on-location treatments, including care for A-list Artists in the Music Industry and called-in for Live Nation concert events. Going on-tour with a few of them to provide ongoing care was most certainly a highlight along the way, with experiences of a lifetime.
Admittedly, I had to pinch myself a few times.
Being on the road, I helped many back and forth between New Jersey and Los Angeles, to provide care. Travel, as you know, can be quite exhausting and compromise our ability to be at our best. It was time to be grounded, tune-into the depths of science and intuition, and be more efficient.
I can most certainly relate to anyone challenged by jet lag and fatigue!
In 2011, I finally opened up to assisting individuals by-phone so that I could provide the best possible care from my Apothecary. I formulate and compound custom hand-crafted, organic, fresh, whole plant extracts right here for you.
No pills on a shelf, with unnecessary ingredients.
No two people get the same formulas, even if they share similar diagnostics.
Your Medical History is unique to You. Shouldn’t your care of it be tailored to you, as well?
Thank heavens for Mom & Dad. They believed in me every step of the way through my pursuit of formal education in these ‘alternative’ methods of healthcare, long before mainstream understood and accepted its value and efficacy.
It has been a long yet fulfilling journey. Being amongst the very few of us in Herbal Medicine qualified at this level in medical sciences, I am here to share with you all that I possibly can for your best care.
Here for You as your Primary Care or coordinated as an Integrative role amongst conventional approaches.
I am here for You. Give me a jingle or send me a note. Whenever you are ready, in your own timing.
That said… why wait?
Other bits of me
I was born and raised in New Jersey. I still live and work from New Jersey.
(yes, New Jersey!)
Sharing my perspectives and reflections in this road-trip of Life on Instagram, Facebook and Tumblr is a personal pastime; Photography has been a childhood passion…
PBS and Masterpiece Theater is an obsession for me, and Sunday would not feel complete without the Nature Scene at the end of enjoying the Sunday Morning Show on CBS with a steaming-hot cup of organic coffee.
I think that about covers it, for now. Afterthoughts are my nemesis. You’ll find them all on social media.
