In celebration of Mother’s Day, 100% of proceeds for this workshop went to Sistering.org, a multi-service agency aimed at supporting women in Toronto facing poverty, marginalization, and homelessness. Women at Sistering are battling a range of difficulties including mental health problems, substance abuse, run-ins with the criminal justice system, lack of access due to immigrant/refugee status, and more. At Sistering, a small team of women work tirelessly to offer a 24/7 drop-in, that provides shelter, hot meals, crisis intervention, harm reduction, and trauma-informed counselling services. They also make referrals for housing, health, and legal and immigration services.

I was thrilled to have my very own naturopath, Dr. Tracey Beaulne, speak to us at this workshop!
Dr. Tracey M. Beaulne ND, has been a clinician for over 17 years. She focuses on complex gut-to-brain and immune connections. Her personal and clinical experience with gut health has shaped her methods of treating the critical internal ecosystems.
In addition to her clinical practice she is the host of the Microbiome Summit for Town Hall Medicine, a partnership between the University of Toronto’s Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy and Genuine Health. In Tracey’s words “I had the honour and privilege of interviewing our experts to learn about their ground breaking research. My goal through all of the interviews is to elevate the conversation on current health topics by providing information that is accurate, credible, proven and trusted. I hope you will be inspired to join us in this educational journey to better health”.

New science is telling us that all our thoughts, behaviour and reactions to stress and even our ability to have empathy are potentially being driven by the gut bugs— which have been under attack and neglected for decades! We are seeing rising rates of anxiety, depression, less stress resilience and a surge in brain disorders, which appears to be influenced, at least in part, by the relationship between microbes and our lifestyle. With this knowledge it is easier to have greater empathy towards ourselves, our elderly and our young and work towards positive change for our Mother Earth.
