Emiliano Lemus is an herbalist, medical student in the UC Berkeley-UCSF Joint Medical Program, and fourth-generation healer/plant meddler. Their Oakland-based herbalism practice centers both social justice and energetic herbalism, based on the teachings of Karyn Sanders and Sarah Holmes at the Blue Otter School of Herbal Medicine. They've also spent a decade working as a community organizer, workshop facilitator, and educator, on topics including sexuality, sexual health, transgender competence, and the impacts of structural violence on health and wellbeing. As a queer and trans chicano (Purépecha and Chichimeca), Emiliano is passionate about combining experiential and professional knowledge to provide trainings to health professionals and the broader community, as well as holistic health consultations.
