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.
Doctor of Chiropractic Luell sees the body as a single harmonious unit that's built to heal itself, so the doctor's role is simply to trigger those self-healing mechanisms. Noninvasive adjustments encourage healthier brain-body communication by nudging vertebrae away from nerve tissue and internal self-destruct buttons. The resulting balance helps the body overcome a range of ailments, such as back pain, headaches, and digestive issues.
As a high-school student, Dennis Rattiner reached down to pick up a leaf blower and heard an ominous pop in his lower back. He was bedridden for days with pain. At the suggestion of a friend, he paid a visit to a chiropractor, which alleviated his discomfort without the use of drugs or surgery. From then on, he sought to help people in the same way.
Now the owner and head chiropractor at Progressive Healthcare of Gwinnett, Doctor of Chiropractic Rattiner treats patients for ailments including disk herniations, arthritis, and back and neck pain. His massage therapists and chiropractors rehabilitate patients through physical therapy, mollify aches with Swedish and deep-tissue massages, and help clients shed pounds with weight-loss programs and donuts made of antimatter.
There are two things that are absolutely vital when someone first becomes a parent: lots of sleep, and peace of mind. AlphaCord grants that second essential by providing umbilical-cord blood collection and storage services to brand-new mothers. Because it's chock-full of life-giving stem cells, saving a baby's umbilical cord blood may help doctors treat the child—and potentially relatives—for a number of diseases later on. The collection process is simple: the same professional that delivers the baby collects the blood from the mother, keeping the baby and any queasy storks entirely removed from the process. Once it's collected, the blood is swiftly couriered to the AlphaCord storage facility where it is cryogenically frozen and stored for future use.
