Debra Gerson, L. Ac., Dipl. OM, FABORM, is a leading authority in women’s health, wellness, and fertility. As the founder of one of Colorado’s largest wellness centers, Botanica Wellness Sanctuary, she has counseled thousands of women on how to lead healthier and more fulfilling lives. Her mission is to educate, empower, and inspire women to achieve their maximum health, wellness, and fertility potential using a combination of Eastern and Integrative medicine.

Debra is board-certified in Oriental Reproductive Medicine, a licensed acupuncturist, herbalist and a well-known integrative provider. Debra Gerson graduated Magna Cum Laude from New York University before training in both Eastern and Western Medicine at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. She moved to Colorado in 2007 and opened her thriving wellness sanctuary shortly after. Debra is one of the only acupuncturists in the world to have also completed hypnotherapy training and integrate it successfully into her wellness practice.

In addition to her expertise in wellness, Debra’s passion for helping women and couples expand their families has been an integral part of her practice since it’s inception. She was one of the first acupuncturists in the country to complete a preceptorship under a Reproductive Endocrinologist, and her own three-year personal fertility struggle years later provided invaluable knowledge to the level of pain, confusion, and devastation so many women and couples face.  

Debra has been interviewed by SELF, Woman’s World, First For Women, Vegetarian Times, MyDomaine, The Denver Post, and Denver Fox News for her expert advice in natural healthcare. When not treating patients, writing or speaking, she is an avid traveller, foodie, hiker, and lover of all things nature and animal. She splits her time between Denver and her mountain cabin overlooking Colorado’s largest glacial lakes.
