Dr. Tracey Beaulne B.A. (Hons.), N.D., R. Ac
Board-certified Naturopathic Doctor and Acupuncturist
Tracey is an experienced clinician and has been practicing for over 15 years. She has built her practice on the foundation that the gastrointestinal tract and its ecosystem is the portal to optimal physical and mental health. Her collaborative approach to health has allowed her to help many of her patients who would never have considered that a personalized approach through individualized medicine, diet and lifestyle intervention could be the answer.
She works with people who suffer from complaints such as gas, bloating, chronic stomach upset, weight gain around the middle, auto immune diseases, thyroid issues, food reactions, mental health issues and hormonal imbalances - all conditions that seriously disrupt the quality of our lives, especially as we age.
Tracey's approach to patient care is to look for, understand and treat the root cause of illness, and her special interest is the gastrointestinal microbiome and gut health.
I have a very curious mind and believe we must never stop learning. I stay up to date with the latest research so that I can offer my patients optimal assistance in their health care.
In 2001, Tracey completed the Bensen-Henry Institute (BHI) at the Harvard Medical School certification requirements in Mind Body Medicine. These studies aim to integrate mind-body medicine into mainstream health care through rigorous, evidence-based research and clinical application. She is currently working on a collaborative project with the Centre for Integrative Medicine at the University of Toronto. One of the objectives of this project is to ensure that the latest research on Gut Health and the Microbiome is more broadly accessible to both the medical community and the general public.
Tracey graduated from Queen's University where she pursued her interest in health with an Honours degree in Sociology focusing on Health Promotion and Administration. This led to four years working with the Heart and Stroke Foundation before she decided to pursue her studies at The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine as a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, graduating in 2001. She is a member of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors, the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors, the College of Naturopaths of Ontario and the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO).
