“I’ve never written a letter like this before, but I felt compelled to because my daily life has changed so much for the better since working with Tami.
For 20 years, I have suffered from Ulcerative Colitis. I’ve had some periods of remission, but for the last several years, this disease has affected my life so dramatically that I was AFRAID to do the things I love, such as outdoor activities.
Over the years I have tried several homeopathic approaches to this illness, none of them were successful. My condition worsened. I was at a point where my Medical gastro doctor wanted me to go on Humira (look up the side effects). I didn’t want to risk the side effects, I wanted another solution.
Concerned about my condition, my friend recommended Tami at Medical Herbalist Apothecary. I had my first consultation with Tami 7 months ago, and can’t say enough about my progress. Since starting with Tami, I went from [waking repeatedly] having 3 to 4 movements per night to sleeping THROUGH the night–I can’t express how that, in itself, has helped me! During the day, I went from 8 to 10 movements per day, down to 2 or 3 times per day.
I can’t thank Tami enough! My life has changed dramatically since starting care with her, and I hope to progress further to a normal life.” ~ Frank D., Retired Police Officer, Brick NJ
“Tami Bronstein helped fix a liver issue I had with such a simple measure that failed the NHS in England. It’s been about three years since then and my results have gone from dramatic improvement to maintaining correct levels. I’m indebted.” ~ Antonio S, London, England UK
“trywithgia our health and wellness are like puzzles we slowly piece together as we get older… we can no longer drink, and eat anything we want… our bodies change, and the way we take care of ourselves needs to change and grow as well… i’m so blessed to have wonderful professionals helping and teaching me along the way. ❤️@medherbalist🙌🏻 a hormone whisperer using functional medicine focused on a plant-based remedy“Tami has been a godsend. Suffering from late stage Lyme disease, her care was an essential part of my recovery. Unlike many of her peers, Tami has a strong academic background which made me much more comfortable in seeking her care. Tami offered a thoughtful and well thought out regimen to work with my traditional medical practitioners.” ~ Gia Bocra Liwski, LPGA Women’s Golf Instructor, Golf + Lifestyle Expert www.golfexperiencesforher.com

“I just wanted to write in to Tami to let her know how fantastic her services were. I underwent a second fat transfer surgery and used her customized herbal medicine blend both before and after surgery. My first surgery, I had a lot of bruising that lasted 2 weeks. After using these products, I had no bruising whatsoever. My swelling only lasted 3-4 days and people say how refreshed and well-rested I look. Another bonus was that my energy level was higher than usual, it felt good taking those herbal medicines. Finally, I had no pain and didn’t even need the prescribed pain killer after surgery. I love the results, I loved that there was no bruising and would recommend this service to anyone thinking about getting plastic surgery.”
~ Saideh Shemirani, San Diego, CA
“I can’t say enough good things about Tami. I was referred to her by my plastic surgeon before I had a fat transfer early this fall and I’ve kept her close ever since our first conversation. She’s FANTASTIC. Smart, sweet, easy to speak to, timely, honest. I had three things I wanted her help with: limit the swelling in my face post-procedure, get rid of my eczema without steroid creams, and help balance my hormones so I can hopefully conceive over the next year so. It is now December and Tami has successfully helped all three happen for me. My surgery was a complete success, the disappearance of my eczema after only a few weeks was like magic, and what I thought would take at least a few months of trying… (conception) ended up only taking my first month of ovulation. She’s like a wizard!
And the best part of it all is she isn’t putting anything synthetic in your body — it’s all natural. I hope more people start turning to this type of practice of medicine. I can’t recommend her enough. Thank you, Tami!”

“In 2009, I started getting weird purple/black spots on my torso – I would literally wake up in the morning with a new spot averaging about 2 inches. I was totally freaking out and started seeing my doctor to help me.
Well, this started a spiral of various creams and tests to figure out what and why these spots were popping up on my torso.
After approx 6 months of bouncing between my family doctor and a dermatologist with no improvement, I took the advice from my Mom (who lives in the Bahamas) to find a natural way to support the healing of the unexplained spots. After researching on the internet, I came across Sundance Wellness/Medical Herbalist Apothecary and was very moved to contact Tami to get help. I started seeing Tami and immediately loved her personality, her concern and knowledge of herbal medicine treatments. Within a month of seeing her and regularly taking my herbal medicine, there was significant improvement and my spots finally began fading. I was so happy that it was all getting better! Thank you Tami for all that you have done for me!”
~ Nicole L., Stylist/Make-up Artist, NYC
“I found Tami Bronstein, of Sundance Wellness/Medical Herbalist Apothecary, in 2003 when my husband and I were eager to conceive our first child. We had been actively trying to conceive for about a year prior, unsuccessfully. Our effort and frustration was complicated by the announcement that my husband’s Marine unit was deploying for a year. That year turned into eighteen months, so by the end of his deployment we knew we didn’t want to wait any longer to have a child in our family. I contacted Tami several months prior to my husband’s return in order to regulate my periods and optimize the likelihood of conceiving.
I was impressed and comforted by Tami’s professional, multidimensional approach. At my initial consultation in July of 2003, Tami took a full medical, diet & lifestyle and personal history, considering the traditional medical approaches that my husband and I had undergone, such as invasive reproductive assessments and blood values. Before the end of my appointment, Tami educated me about my body systems and dysfunctions, and recommended various ways that I could easily adjust my diet, exercise and lifestyle immediately, while I waited for Tami to formulate herbal remedies in the days that followed my initial consultation. When I received my herbal remedies,Tami provided me with specific, comprehensive instructions for taking them and was available to answer questions and support throughout my treatment. I noticed differences in my menstrual cycle within the month that followed taking the remedies.
Within the two months following my husband’s return home, we conceived making Thanksgiving 2003 even more poignant and exciting- after years of wanting a pregnancy, we were able to make that joyous announcement to our family and friends around our Thanksgiving table. Now, we give thanks everyday — not just on Thanksgiving — for our beautiful, healthy boy (now 6 years old) and the help that Tami – of Sundance Wellness/Medical Herbalist Apothecary – provided to me on our journey to conception.”

“In September 2016, I started to experience severe digestive issues seemingly overnight. After seeing 7 different doctors over a one month period, the diagnoses received ranged from a stomach flu to Crohn’s Disease. I was finally diagnosed with Salmonella Poisoning which severely damaged my small intestine and caused Malabsorption. The Gastroenterologist I was referred to told me there was nothing that could be done for Malabsorption and that I would have to indefinitely take supplements for the nutrients my body was losing, and pain killers for the discomfort I was experiencing. Indefinitely — an option that was unacceptable to me. Luckily, I was given Tami’s information from one of her Patients and she was able to see me almost immediately. I learned more about what was happening inside my body from Tami than from ALL of the other DOCTORS combined. Along with the herbs specifically tailored to my needs, I was provided with a range of foods to incorporate into my diet to help the healing of my intestines. Within days of my appointment, the symptoms of Malabsorption were significantly decreased and within a WEEK, they were GONE. Tami embodies health and wellness and it is evident that she TRULY CARES about her Patients. It has been almost 3 months since initially getting sick, and while it has been a very slow recovery, I am confident that I would not be where I am today without Tami’s guidance.” ~Jennifer S., Boonton, NJ
“Tami is a truly wonderful soul, very caring and down to earth. She will make every effort, using her tremendous knowledge to help you heal.”
~ Richard Freeman, MS, Corporate Services, Hillsborough, NJ
“Tami’s approach to my overall well-being played an essential role in my battle with [Hodgkin’s lymphoma] cancer. Her depth of knowledge combining real-world medical understanding with a passion for finding the natural option, together with her willingness to fully understand the individual, is what makes her so unique. She adapted my treatment in response to the changing effects the chemotherapy had on my body, thus allowing me to continue with my life and my work unabated. In the summer of 2013 I traveled the world performing shows with Def Leppard. I’m certain that I couldn’t have done that without Tami’s help.”
~ Vivian Campbell, Guitarist/Musician/Songwriter, Def Leppard (Rock band), Los Angeles, CA
“If you are interested in pursuing natural remedies to balance Hormones, look no further. Tami also should be considered for women trying to conceive, on their own or with the help of a Reproductive Endocrinologist. She is perfectly suited to be a support to Western Medicine.” ~ C. Rutkay, CR Interior Design, NY/NJ/CT Metro Region
“I love this woman and what she does… I am proud to say that I was one of her first patients many years ago. Thanks Tami!” ~ Rachael K., Brick, NJ via Facebook

“This is one of my high school classmates, Tami Bronstein. For those of you who know, she put together a mixture for me last year that helped me with the stress and anxiety I was dealing with. She didn’t just treat the symptoms but was able to get to the root cause. I highly recommend her services. Even though she is in NJ she can consult with you by phone.
~ Pam S., Coral Springs, FL
“For anyone who has had to watch a child or a loved one suffer you are a member of a club that no-one cares to join. Our son has had a very long and chronic battle with Lymes disease. First diagnosed at 6, he is now 22. We managed his disease for years with lengthy stints of antibiotics. But a cure seemed unattainable. The fix was always temporary. It all came to a terrible and frightening head a year and a half ago when Bobby developed a blood clot caused by yet another pic line placed in his arm. For us, this was the tipping point and the realization that conventional antibiotic treatment was definitely not making the situation any better. We had to search for other options.
Just by chance I bumped into someone who knew about our son, and who also suffers from Lymes. She gave me Tami’s name and number and begged me to call. She felt Tami had saved her life. I made the call and we have never looked back. Tami took a detailed account of Bobby’s history and all his symptoms. She had a wonderful way of convincing our son that with the help of using custom formulated herbal supplements and watching his diet more carefully, that he could reboot his own immune system. Bobby has been loyal to her program and feels he has truly gotten his life back. After three months under her care, he began to notice the changes. Our son is a lacrosse player for a highly competitive Division I program. Last year Lyme disease robbed him of his ability to play and he was forced to red-shirt.
This year he is back on the field and is having an incredible season. The coaches can’t believe the transformation. We never thought we’d see this day. We are more grateful than I can express that our paths crossed with Tami!”
~ Tracy B. Atlantic Highlands, NJ
“I had suffered with eczema on my eyelids for close to 9 years. I saw a dermatologist and was placed on steroid cream. The steroid cream simply kept the eczema mildly under control, and as soon as I would stop using it within 2 days the eczema would flare up again.
There are many side effects to the steroid cream ~I couldn’t continue to use it long term~ and without using it, I was miserable.
I had heard about Tami and decided to see her for a consultation for my skin problem.
My consultation with Tami was an excellent experience. She took the time to get a very detailed medical history from me, and in talking with her about things, I also told her I had been experiencing some anxiety and insomnia.
Tami treated my eczema, anxiety and insomnia with an herbal mixture that I would take twice a day, along with some advice on diet changes, and a few supplements to add to my diet.
Within 1 week on the herbs I saw an improvement in my eczema, and I was sleeping better and less anxious.
After my full course of treatment my eczema was completely gone and it has never come back. My anxiety and insomnia were also greatly improved.
I would highly recommend seeking herbal medicine treatment for any medical condition you are experiencing. I am so happy that I did, it greatly changed my life for the better.”
~ Melissa Santora, Registered Nurse, S.Plainfield, NJ
“Tami is a special person in many ways. She was the only person who wanted to hear my whole medical history before any recommendations. No other doctor wanted to know all of that, especially since mine is so long and complicated. I have late-stage Lyme Disease, Celiac Disease and also suffer from chronic nerve pain due to poor dental work and repeated bone surgeries.
I now have permanent nerve damage in my face following these surgeries, which is extremely painful and consumes my energy. I was a Retirement Planner before I became incapacitated, and used to tell people all the time that they had a better chance of becoming disabled than dying young. Never did I think I would become disabled, but I did. Tami has helped with my pain, and the side-effects that come with the prescription medications we are working to reduce. She is non-judgmental, very caring and kind. I look forward to continue working with her in the future and helping me battle my very complicated health struggles. I have complete confidence in her abilities. I was also impressed with her credentials and extensive knowledge about my concerns!”
~ Dawn O’Malley, Nashville, TN
“From my personal experiences with Tami’s help, I have had nothing but successes. Early-on, I suffered from GERD and almost constant ‘heart-burn’ that Tami virtually cured with natural herbs and extracts! It wasn’t resolved ‘overnight’ but with a plan of treatment, I started out with conventional medicines that only seemed to mask the problem temporarily. After following Tami’s recommended remedies, my symptoms disappeared permanently! Then, in 2004, Tami helped me with supportive herbs while I underwent treatment for Leukemia. Her understanding of primary and supportive care helped me achieve total remission with my medical treatment. As I continue with her recommendations, I remain in remission. I have learned much about the positive values of Herbal Medicine and support for health while in Tami’s care.”
~ MB, Middlesex County, NJ
“Tami is nothing short of a miracle worker. Not only was she an absolute pleasure to speak with and do business with, but her personalized herbal mixture did the trick. I had suffered from nerve pain, especially at night, and I did not want to continue taking prescription pain medication due to its harmful side effects. After taking her mixture as directed, the pain subsided to the equivalent of a prescription pain medication. Her services aren’t simply making herbal mixtures; she also explains and recommends which foods to avoid and which foods to consume to help with the issue trying to be resolved. I have learned so much from Tami and she has helped me a great deal, it is a bonus that she is a friend now too. I have and do highly recommend her services to anyone.”
~ Jayme Eber, Clinical Therapist, E. Windsor, NJ
“You really have saved me from a life of fatigue! Seriously. I have so much going on in my life right now: mom with Alzheimer’s, more job responsibility, International travel, new beau. If I felt *this* year the way I did at this time *last* year [before Herbal Medicine care], I would never be able to get through all that is going on! I am amazed at the difference between last fall and this fall. I was practically in tears every day from exhaustion. Fall is my busiest time at work! But this year I’m tackling everything head on!” ~ Mary J., Specialty Gourmet Foods Consultant, New York City
