  • Dr.
    Barry Gjerdrum
    D.C.
    Chiropractor

    Dr. Barry grew up staying very active in sports. As an athlete, the only thing holding him back was getting sick frequently and recovering slowly from hockey injuries and runs.

    During his second year at university he was studying exercise physiology and human performance. That’s when Dr. Barry was referred to a classmate’s husband who was a chiropractor. “I don’t have neck or back pain,” he told this friend, assuming that was mostly what chiropractic care was for. His classmate explained to him that chiropractic care can help benefit athletes and allow the body to heal naturally.

    Dr. Barry began chiropractic care and quickly saw positive changes in his health. He noticed he started recovering from his athletics faster and was rarely sick. With his incredible experience, he encouraged his entire family to see a chiropractor. Right after her first adjustment, his sister, who had asthma, recalls taking the biggest breath she could ever remember.

    Chiropractic care is about helping your body function better without relying on outside measures. “It was a great experience for everyone.”

    The Power of Chiropractic

    Soon after he went to the open house at Palmer College of Chiropractic West and signed up that night to become a student. Dr. Barry appreciates learning from other chiropractors and students how powerful chiropractic care can be. “I went from being able to help people work and feel better to saving lives through chiropractic care.”

    In practice for over 17 years, Dr. Barry has witnessed many amazing chiropractic miracles and looks forward to helping more patients like you.

    “Family Is One of My Greatest Values.”

    Dr. Barry is proud to provide his three kids with a chiropractic lifestyle, from a natural delivery to a drug-free, vibrant household. “I didn’t have that growing up, but it’s amazing to be able to raise them in such a wonderful, healthy environment.”

    Outside of the office, Dr. Barry stays active through CrossFit, cycling, skiing and maintaining a balance of fitness and recreation with his family. Dr. Barry is grateful for his lovely wife. “She’s an incredible supporter of chiropractic care.” He loves spending time with his family, especially building Lego memories with his sons.

    Experience thorough healing, naturally. Contact us today and let’s see how we can help.

  • Darla Jarrett
    CHN, NNCP

    Hello my name is Darla Jarrett, I am a mom to three awesome kids, 12 year old boy/girl twins and a 14 year old daughter, and I totally live a balanced lifestyle……LOL!  Through my experience of being a mom, a fitness trainer, and a Holistic Nutritionist, I’ve learned to live with what can sometimes be total chaos but still live a healthy life, making my health and fitness a priority.   I understand crazy schedules, eating on the go, feeling totally exhausted and time constraints.    We need to make our health a priority; no one else can do this for us.

    My journey into the world of nutrition began when I was a fitness trainer, I learned that “Bodies are created in the kitchen, not in the gym”, this came after about 5 years of killing myself in the gym and not getting the results I was wanting.   I enrolled in the Canadian School for Natural Nutrition in 2007, and finished with honours in 2009 all while raising my one year old twins and a three year old daughter.  My dedication to my studies was out of pure joy that I had finally found my passion.  I discovered that being healthy is so much more than what we look like on the outside, it’s all about how we eat, feel, think, and treat our bodies that define our health. 

    My philosophy is that living a healthy lifestyle and eating well does not need to be complicated or hard, all you need is the desire and commitment to make a change.  I believe in not letting our past, our age or our genetics define our state of health.   It’s never too late to change our habits or unhealthy lifestyles we all can live a happy, healthy, full life.

    I would love to meet you and help educate, coach and motivate you towards the happy, healthy life you deserve.

  • Dr.
    Julia Sung
    BSc. (Hon), ND

    Good health is the cornerstone of your ultimate happiness and fulfillment in life.  Growing up in the rural parts of South Korea as a child with natural village medicine influenced me in a profound way when I chose to become a doctor later in my life.
    I am passionate about the Healing Power of Nature (Vis Medicatrix Naturae) which is one of the core principles of the Naturopathic Medicine.  I truly believe that the body has an ability to heal itself when various obstacles to health are removed (whether that being poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, or bad health habits such as smoking or over stressing) and are provided with the proper natural therapeutic agents it will surely return to its original wholesome healthy state in the absence of diseases and discomforts.
    I feel fortunate to get to practice Naturopathic Medicine today because of the extraordinary opportunity where the advances in modern science and technologies from the West are available to be merged with traditional health practices and philosophies from the East.  I am excited about what Naturopathic Medicine can offer you and your family!
    Outside my clinical practice, my other passions include spending quality time with my family, poperatic singing, gourmet cooking and entertaining, travelling, swimming and exploring nature.
    “The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease” -Thomas Edison
