Naturopathic Medicine

A Naturopathic Doctor is a General Practitioner who uses Natural Methods.  Naturopathic Medicine uses a blend of evidence based medicine and patient centered care, which provides the patients with safe, effective and individualized treatment plans.  Naturopathic Doctors seek to treat the underlying cause of your concern using the least invasive methods first.

The 6 principles of Naturopathic Medicine

  • First, do no harm
  • Treat the cause
  • Treat the whole person
  • Prevention
  • Doctor as teacher
  • Use the healing power of Nature

Naturopathic medicine focuses on treating the whole person, using symptoms as a guide to figure out the root cause of your concerns.  It focuses on proactive health care by educating and empowering each patient to take their health into their own hands.

“I became a doctor because I care about people and their welfare and believe healthy people are happy people. I am always grateful to those who invite me to be a part of their healthcare team as I find great fulfillment in helping them take steps forward into a better life. Good health & happiness is truly the essence of good quality of life.”

Dr. Lacey Gerbrandt, B.Sc., N.D. grew up on an acreage outside of Drayton Valley, AB. She completed a Bachelors degree in Science at the University of Alberta, Edmonton, and then a doctorate at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in New Westminster, BC. She has further training in intravenous therapies, pharmaceutical prescribing and emergency procedures.

Dr. Lacey moved back to Alberta after the completion of her 11 year post secondary education and is now happy to call Spruce Grove home. Passionate about helping as many people as possible, she works in 2 clinics in Spruce Grove; Vita Sana Naturopathic Wellness Clinic and 360° Wellness.

Starting her Own Business

“I started Vita Sana in 2015. It is my baby and has been built on love. Being owner and operator of it gives me the freedom to practice and grow as I see fit. My favourite offering is the Karma Clinic I run through Vita Sana which allows me to offer services to low income persons at reduced prices making Naturopathic care more accessible. I recently started with 360° Wellness as I loved the integrated one-stop-shop for healthcare that they provided and wanted to be a part of it. Further 360° Wellness is fully equipped for IV therapy which is a fantastic therapy for many. I really enjoy working with the entire 360 team, they have quickly found a place close to my heart.”

“I grew up feeling first hand the toll disease within myself and disease within my family placed upon me. I personally went through every avenue the conventional medical system had to offer with no answers or relief. By fate alone I stumbled upon Naturopathic Medicine and to my awe, not only found answers and relief but true cure for my ailments! This inspired me to make Naturopathic Medicine my career path so that I could bring this same healing, happiness and cure into other peoples lives. I truly believe we all deserve happy lives free from suffering. This is why I do what I do.”

Dr. Lacey is a respected professional in her community and has always maintained good standing with both her regulatory college (the College of Naturopathic Doctors of Alberta) and her federal association (the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors). She offers a wide array of treatment options for any health concern you may present.

A Love of Naturopathic Medicine

“One of my favorite parts about Naturopathic medicine is that it offers so many options and really allows me to think and treat outside the conventional box. It is my belief that with enough knowledge, understanding and persistence any concern can be overcome. I commonly use herbal, nutraceutical & intravenous therapies, homeopathy, acupuncture & traditional Chinese medicines and lifestyle & dietary counselling to get to the root of my patients concerns. Although I treat every health concern imaginable I currently have the most experience with gynecologic concerns & fertility, autoimmune concerns, fibromyalgia, gastrointestinal complaints, stress management and musculoskeletal/pain concerns. More recently I have started into Cancer support and care.”
