Tracy Stewart, LAc
Constitutional Diet Expert
Tracy Stewart received her BA in Biochemistry from UC Berkeley and worked in research and development for twenty years, focusing on the areas of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. She obtained her Acupuncture Degree in 1989 in England studying with the late Professor J.R. Worsley, a world-renowned healer and the leading proponent of Five Element Acupuncture. She continues her education with Professor Niki Bilton, Dean of Ongiara College, Ontario, Canada.
In 2007 Tracy felt tired all the time, her digestion was erratic, and she suffered with constant joint pain, insomnia and was unable to lose any weight. Researching for a remedy online she found so much opposing information that it was difficult to sort out what was valuable, even with a background in biochemistry and acupuncture. She tried many diets and remedies, but no matter what she did nothing changed until she discovered Sasang. Following the dietary recommendations for her constitution, for just a week, improved her energy dramatically. Over time, every health issue improved.
Since that time she has researched and taken classes with a number of Sasang teachers, including Peter Eckman, MD, PhD. She has also studied Chinese Astrology as a tool for diagnosing constitution from several teachers including the late Richard Teh-Fu Tan, OM.D. In other areas of the use of Chinese astrology, she has attended lectures given by the late Liu Ming of Da Yuan Circle and uses astrology for determining the time of Antique and Horary points in acupuncture.
Tracy practiced Five Element Acupuncture for over 20 years and for the last 10 years has provided Qi Balance Constitution Diagnosis for clients worldwide. She has seen many patients completely turn their health around by following the guidelines for nutrition, exercise and meditation recommended to them from their Qi Balance analysis.
“My desire is two-fold; to present the Korean system of Constitutional Medicine, called Sasang, to the West and to provide personal, practical medical information so that individuals feel empowered with natural cures and remedies to heal and protect their health.” – Tracy Stewart
