On this page you will be kept up to date on all of Tracey's speaking engagements.  Tracey frequently lectures on how gut health is a contributing factor to other health conditions. If you would like to attend a seminar or have Tracey speak to your group, then contact her for details.

I was very fortunate to be present at a talk Tracey did on the relationship of Developmental Disabilities, digestive health and diet.

I listen to many presentations and talks on the subject, and I have to say that this was one of the best. Tracey tied together information on epigenetics, diet, gut function and how it all impacts our brains and general health, in a way that was simple and easy to understand. She provided enough scientific explanations to aid understanding and to show that there is merit and data to substantiate that lifestyle changes can make a profound impact on someone’s quality of life.

I also have to say that, besides the fantastic information, Tracey is a great speaker, showing her enthusiasm and passion. I appreciate how she applied the principles she teaches to herself and members of her family, and how candid and heartfelt she was in sharing her personal struggles. She brought hope by showing us the improvements in her family members and in examples of clients who follow the protocols she recommends.

I look forward to attending any future presentations and learning from Tracey.

Last week, we asked Tracey to present at our monthly meeting for alternative medicine. Not only did she deliver a great presentation about gut health, she was able to tie it all together relating it to various conditions such as joint and muscular dysfunctions, low back pain, and chronic pain. It is a significant tool for manual practitioners who aren’t traditionally taught correction of these problems through means of better nutrition. The presentation was so good we were pulling our families into the room, just to hear all the great information we were learning. She was able to effectively answer any questions and she had great visuals to help us understand what is going on. Really great job Tracey!
