Deborah Imani, founder of The Nile Wellness Center, believes that the health of a person's internal ductwork correlates directly to their overall well-being. By keeping the last 5 or 6 feet of the digestive tract uncongested through colon hydrotherapy, she promotes a lifestyle free of toxins, excess weight, and unhealthy stress. The drug-free work done by her and her staff has earned rave reviews from the readers of Creative Loafing Atlanta as well as a spot on Proactive Resources' 2012 Best of Atlanta list.
Not just concerned with drawing impurities out of the body, Deborah also touts the importance of what a patient puts in. As the author the book First Generation Raw, she helps readers move toward an organic uncooked diet packed with more vitamins and fiber than a lumber store made from bricks of frozen spinach.
The clinicians and dietitians at WeightLoss MD, helmed by medical director Dr. John Ouderkirk, tip the scales in dieters' favor by employing lab test results and custom, one-on-one advice. Their client base is 85% composed of women, so they understand the unique weight-loss challenges posed to women, but they are just as skilled at helping men ditch unhealthy belly fat. While not included with vitamin-B-complex injections, lipotropic injections and appetite suppressants can bolster calorie burning and control, and the meal plans are tailored to fit each participant's lifestyle, tastes, and mouth size.
Within the onsite optical lab at each Eyeworks location, opticians perform virtually any act of optical alchemy, whether forging new bifocals, mending bent or broken frames, or glazing lenses in protective coatings that cut down on glare and scratches. Armed with a knack for style, opticians cull from the stores' collection of designer frames—including popular models from Dakota Smith and Lafont and exclusive lines from Soho and Okki—to match each customer with a look to suit their personality and facial structure. Before either can get to work, however, optometrists conduct comprehensive eye exams, helping patients maintain healthy, focused vision by honing new prescriptions and diagnosing potential diseases such as cataracts or early-onset googly eyes.
Using a combined 21 years of skincare experience, the staff at Seraphim Skin Care leave skin glowing, even-toned and exfoliated. Since opening its doors in 1997, the medical spa has always carried prescription topical medications and professional peels for purchase, along with creamy moisturizers for the face or body. Within the elegant and comfortable environment, customers can also opt for serious skincare treatments including aromatic fruit peels that boast intense cleansing benefits, Peel and Bleach procedures, sugar-salicylic body treatments, and pampering spa packages. Champagne is available upon request.
Asha Efuru, the proprietor, certified colon hydrotherapist, and instructor at Hadiya Wellness, has long been dedicated to holistic health. The former owner of a California colon-hydrotherapy training school, Efuru continues to train students for careers in eliminating toxins from the body. At Hadiya Wellness, she helms colonics, herbal body wraps, and ionic foot detoxes, striving to bring each client's energy level up to that of a caffeinated puppy. Their recently expanded space now includes two treatment rooms as well as two treatments systems.
LabTest MD’s team screens patients for allergies, STDs, paternity status, and even steroid use—overall, it offers more than 2,000 medical tests. A CLIA-certified lab processes each one and typically releases the results in 72 hours or less. As at a doctor’s office, test results are confidential; however, unlike at a doctor’s office, patients have complete control over which tests they undergo.
