“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!”
Tami is SUCH a lovely, patient, caring and brilliant person. She takes her time with you-- whether that be during an in-person meeting or an over-the-phone checkup. She knows her stuff!! I highly recommend Tami for anyone who is interested in holistic approaches to health.
Tami is wonderful. She helped me with allergies and thyroid. She was very thorough and figured things out when the doctors couldn’t. Definitely recommend her
I have been a patient of Tami's for over 10 years. She has helped me manage gastrointestinal issues, hormone balancing, exhausted adrenals and anxiety over the years. Health issues change and Tami's individual approach changes with me. Tami doesn't just mask symptoms! Her goal is to get to the root of the problem in order to achieve optimum wellness. I truly owe the last 10 years of wellness to Tami!
Working with Tami and just the herbal supplements she provides has made all the difference in my mind and body health. A system that works. It has been great to eliminate all the supplements and use the simple daily regimen.
I have the pleasure of knowing Tami personally and professionally for years. It was only recently that I had a health issue and called on her expertise for help in a medical issue concerning my gums/teeth/mouth. From her staff to our timely appointments, opportunity to ask questions, very extensive consultation ,and made for me herbal remedies and diet and lifestyle recommendations, I wouldn't turn to anyone else for any health issue I come upon. Thank you Tami for your knowledge and love for what you do and toward your clients.
I’ve had stomach pain for 20+ years. I’ve gone to many doctors with no success. After working with Tami for two months I feel no pain. Tami took the time to listen in detail about my life and health and gave me a plan to deal with it. I’m grateful and amazed!
“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.”
I went to Tami because I was getting menstrual migranes. She took over 2 hours to hear about my health journey so far and I instantly felt like she understood my situation. Most doctors do not want to hear about your past but Tami uses all of it to help her understand why things might be happening. I started on a regimen and the first two months I barely had a migrane. I couldnt believe after months of trying different treatments how significantly they had improved and hope to follow her regimen until my migranes are gone for good :)
"I’m so incredibly grateful to have met Tami and to work with her on curing some skin issues I have. She’s takes the time to sit with you at every appointment and to write down all the details and concerns you may have and makes each formula unique to you. I’ve been seeing her for only 3 months and I have already seen improvements with my eczema. She’s so easy to talk to and makes you feel at ease. I would highly recommend seeing Tami if you’d like to try the more natural route to healing. I’ve been to many dermatologists who only wanted to prescribe me over the counter meds, so I was relieved to have met Tami and go the more natural route. I’m so grateful!
Thank you Tami for helping me!"
“@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 is a hormone whisperer using functional medicine focused on a plant-based remedy."
Tami is so knowledgeable, caring, and conscientious about getting to the root of your medical problem. She always explains the purpose of all the herbs in her formulations and what to expect from taking them. She helped my son avoid use of harsh products for acne.
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
Working with Tami the last 10 months has helped me achieve and understand my health and life goals in a natural way. She is great to work with: super considerate, patient, explains everything and is genuinely a lovely person. I appreciate her expertise. And the results I get from working with her!
I consider Tami an essential part of my family's healthcare team. I've been a patient of Tami's (Medical Herbalist Apothecary) for over 14 years. My body and needs have changed over the years. During my initial visit, she took a detailed medical history. At follow-up consultations, she always asks me insightful questions about things I often had never considered important (but often is) to achieving my wellness goals. With the help of her custom-formulated herbal medicines and nutritional recommendations, I've been able to managed my hormones successfully! I highly recommend this Herbal practice to my family and friends.
“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!”
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.
“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!”
“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.”
I have used the Medical Herbalist for the last 3+ years and not only do I recommend her but I would say that if you have issues that conventional medicines have not helped, then make an appointment and you can realize for yourself the depth of her knowledge, her true understanding of how the body works and her kindness, professionalism and caring she will show you. She is respected by medical professionals because she will work with them if your personal case warrants that....don’t let fear of the unknown keep you from this type of treatment, she has changed my life and I will continue to use her for my care!
“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.”
“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!”
“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!”
