As humanity and the planet careen on a path of self-destruction it is imperative to realize that we hold within ourselves, within our brains, the solutions to a better life and the ability to understand the oneness that connects us all. With that understanding we make better decisions in our personal lives, our relationships, and ultimately our communities. We now get to understand, with advances in neuroimaging, how the ancient cultures elevated their state of consciousness and how we can and MUST do the same!
Dr. Tracy Thomson, a proud mother of three teenage boys, has always been passionate about nature, fitness and healing. Dr. Thomson received an Honours degree in Physiology and Doctorate of Medicine from the University of Western Ontario. She went on to study family medicine at the University of Calgary, anaesthesia at UBC, and the Brain Health and Memory Maintenance certification program from the University of South Florida school of medicine.
Eventually, her true calling as a healer compelled her to pursue Traditional Chinese Medicine and found a collaborative medical clinic seven years ago, Gaia Clinic. The clinic dispenses with the traditional focus on symptom management and integrates the best of different medicines. Her current practice involves brain mapping and neuro-psych testing, using food as medicine, bio-identical hormones, functional supplements and writing integrative treatment plans for clients based on both Western and Eastern healing philosophies.
