    You’ve probably heard this before: Your mind controls the whole show. And it’s true – your thoughts are a main character when it comes to your gut function.

Meet your Elevate your Gut Mentor

Naturopathic Doctor

Dr. Melissa Bucking ND

Hi there! I’m Dr. Melissa Bucking, a naturopathic doctor based in Ontario. I have a passion for all things gut health. When I was 16 years old, I started having a BUNCH of digestive issues. I was always in excruciating pain and running to the washroom. Unfortunately after endless testing and doctor’s visits, I was left without a diagnosis or a plan of action. However, I didn’t lose hope. I was determined to figure out what was going on in my body. And with the help of my studies at university and medical school, I healed my gut. Now, I help my patients who are dealing with digestive issues understand where their symptoms are coming from and provide them a plan of action for long-term results. Because here’s the thing – no matter what other specialists have told you, there’s a reason why you’re experiencing your symptoms. And I’m here to provide you with resources to help uncover them and actionable steps you can take each day to elevate your gut.


  • Does this course provide treatment options?

    This course is for educational purposes only. While I am a naturopathic doctor and have provided my 1:1 patients with successful treatment options, I can’t do this for you. However, I know that understanding the basics of gut health will empower you to make well-informed decisions. This knowledge will also help you have deeper conversations with your physician to co-create the optimal treatment plan for you.

  • I’m dealing with gut issues, but I’m not sure if this course is for me. Will I benefit from the program?

    Gut health is very complex! We’re each unique individuals. While we may share similar symptoms, this doesn’t mean we’re going through the exact same thing. You may require additional treatment. However, this course will provide you good foundational gut knowledge.

  • What time are the live Q&A calls? What if I can’t make them

    The times are TBD but the schedule will be posted in our Facebook group. If you can’t make the calls, they will be recorded for you to view later. You’ll also have the opportunity to submit questions beforehand – so even if you can’t make it live, your specific questions will still be answered.
