Brunem’s invaluable insight into my health and needs continues to reverberate throughout my life. As a nurse I deal with medicine and the medical system daily but for my own health needs I find working with an herbalist invaluable to my total well-being. My first session with Brunem was done during a time in my life when I was dealing with multiple health struggles that crossed all parts of my life; eating difficulties, inflammation, depression, stress, and motivation. Brunem offered a very thorough evaluation of my overall health and developed treatment plans that fit my current abilities and needs. Their method of locating my health needs clearly followed a systematic structure while at the same time used an intuitive presence that drew out a clear picture of the many parts of my life that were affecting my illness. More than simply providing me with herbal formulas, Brunem gave me a toolkit for how to think about and understand what my needs are and ways to fulfill them in my life. Brunem brings a bright mixture of intellectual rigor with the invisible mystery that lies within all life. This helps bring out the best in whomever they work with. They are amazing and caring beyond belief!
Brunem has a wide range of knowledge and skills. They are extremely curious and thorough, and an expert herbalist and care provider. I trust them to present their knowledge honestly, to give me the best advice while supporting me to be in control of my healing process.
Brunem has uncovered and expanded the kind of support I could have expected from an herbalist. For the first time I've experienced what it is to feel accompanied on this life journey by a healer who speaks a language just as foreign and familiar as my own. With Brunem as my guide, I have rediscovered trust in myself and my growing plant family.
As a TA in Brunem's Herbal First Aid I learned practical skills that I have since applied in emergency situations in the home multiple times, including the (surprising!) application of cayenne as a styptic. Brunem is a knowledgeable, methodical, radical, and magical herbalist. Their dedication to the safe and effective usage of plant medicines makes them one of the most rigorous and trustworthy herbalists whose practice I've witnessed. It was a joy to work with and learn from such a gentle teacher and dedicated practitioner of plant medicine.
