Meet Marlen Brauns
Marlen Brauns is a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, NES Bioenergetic Practitioner, and a Certified Myers Detox Coach.
She is also passionate about Qi Gong, Meditation and Hatha Yoga practices as well as Body-Mind Acupressure with intermediate training.
Through her own healing journey with Lyme disease, heavy metal toxicity and unresolved childhood PTSD, she has channeled her passions about health, healing, and transformation to support others on their unique individual journey.
Marlen specializes in severe toxicity, chronic fatigue, and emotional difficulties.
Her in-depth emotional healing journey in combination with her diverse health trainings has enabled her to develop a unique ability to carefully listen and quickly identify the intricacy of her clients’ health challenges so that they can experience a more rapid healing journey.
Marlen is very passionate about guiding clients of all ages using functional lab testing and bioenergetic scanning. Instead of treating symptoms, Marlen addresses her clients’ metabolic disorder with appropriate, individually tailored diet, exercise, sleep, and relaxation techniques and alongside some of the most bioavailable high quality supplements/herbal formulas that can be found on the market.
Marlen’s primary goal is to empower and educate her clients on all levels to reach lasting health and giving her clients the tools they need to maintain it.
Marlen has traveled for extensive periods over the world to experience different cultural ways of eating and living. Her thirst for health started early on in life and she has tried many different healing modalities on herself, including a wide variety of diets and cleanses. Marlen lives on a beautiful homestead in the mountains of northern California and enjoys hiking in the wilderness and swimming in the pristine rivers. Over the last years she has learned many meditation techniques and emotional healing techniques that she brings into her work with clients. Marlen values a truly holistic approach to life and being, and provides healing solutions with integrity.

Working with Marlen to optimize my health and help my body detox has been an incredible experience. She is very knowledgeable and has been a tremendous support on my healing journey. I can always count on her advice whenever I have questions. After working with her for a couple of months, lingering symptoms such as sternum pain, PMS symptoms, fatigue, mood, constipation, chronic cough, and pain in my heart have either completely disappeared or improved dramatically. I was also able to come off of my thyroid meds (under the supervision of my doctor) because my health improved so much. I have seen functional medicine doctors for these issues before and have not gotten the same results. Marlen has become an integral part of my healing team.

I have been working with Marlen for nearly a year and what I have appreciated the most is the knowledge that she has about health, and not just our physical health, but also our emotional health and “energetic” health. She has helped me understand that it’s important that all components of health need to find balance in our bodies. A piece that I have just recently learned about is my body’s energy field and how it impacts how I feel. Since working with the NES program to work on finding balance within my energy field, I have experienced a greater sense of contentment with my life. The program is right – you can spend years in counseling, trying to work on issues but feel like you can’t get anywhere. Marlen doesn’t pressure me to do anything and everything that she recommends; rather, she meets me where I am at and works with what I feel is reasonable. She has encouraged me to think about my life and what changes might help me feel better. With her ideas and prompting, I have made some significant changes but I have learned to trust that it is where I am supposed to be. The process is long, but I am hopeful that working on my emotional and energetic health will also help improve my physical health. My blood pressure has seen the lowest results since working with Marlen, besides having seen Doctors and Naturopath for many years prior. Despite living several states away from one another, she is accessible and responsive to my questions and concerns. I look forward to our continued partnership and support.
